Dr. Luke didn't think song would go to No. 1

(Newser) – Tucked into a New Yorker profile of producer Dr. Luke is this fun tidbit picked up by Complex Music. Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, knows hits. (He's worked with Ke$ha, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, and more.) But he apparently doesn't know them that well, or at the very least, he vastly overestimated America's musical tastes—because he didn't think Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" would be a hit. So he told Cyrus he'd buy her the super-expensive Numi toilet (among other things, its Bluetooth receiver can stream music from your phone) if he was wrong, and, well...

"Contrary to what he thinks, Dr. Luke isn't always right," says Cyrus, who's vocally defended the controversial video. "I bet him him that 'Wrecking Ball' would go to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it did. Now he has to buy me a $10,000 toilet. I'll be thinking of him every time I go."
