Katy Perry Ties Michael Jackson's Billboard Record

Katy Perry Ties Michael Jackson's Billboard Record

Katy Perry has become the first woman – and second artist after Michael Jackson! – to have five songs from her album hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The 26-year-old entertainer’s “Last Friday Night” took the top spot on the Hot 100 this week after ousting LMFAO‘s “Party Rock Anthem”.

Previous singles from Teenage Dream to hit #1 were “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.”

In case you were wondering, Michael‘s five singles were from Bad and included “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror,” and “Dirty Diana”.

Congrats, Katy!!

    Katy Perry is voluptuous, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. I love her. She’s a really sweet girl.
    Now she has to drop that ugly old horse’s ass husband of hers, Russell Brand. It is unfortunate that she is as attractive as she is misguided with her poor taste in men. She should be with someone around her age not a guy who obviously can’t handle women around his age.

    don’t get me wrong, I think Katie is a wonderful pop singer and great at what she does, and I have complete respect for someone who makes such a prosperous career for themselves…… But, it also makes me kind of sad that my generation’s music is going to be defined by the likes of her, J-Lo, Britney, Justin Bieber etc. Michael Jackson’s songs were so so so much more real, and showed far more singing talent than any of their music.

    Yeah…I don’t really know how I feel about this. Its nice to see her have this, but I feel like it from the wrong album. Her first album was real and honest were Teenage Dream is just Top 40 songs that have no real meaning behind them. Its sad to see what it takes to have a #1 song, this year alone the charts have been dominated by dance songs (not counting Rolling In The Deep) and its truly getting boring. I know most people here don’t like Lady Gaga but I’m just using her as an exlample of the current state of music. With her First album she put out generic Top 40 song that went to #1. With her second album she got more honest and real, and though her album is selling well, look at how the singles are performing, same goes for Beyonce. Its sad to know that only generic pop can top the charts. Yeah…I don’t really know how I feel about this. Its nice to see her have this, but I feel like it from the wrong album.

    I don’t mind Katy’s music, it’s catchy and easy to sing along to (and unlike her peer Rhianna, she doesn’t ONLY sing about f ******** boys and taking her clothes off), her music is fun harmless pop.

    But I DOUBT VERY MUCH that any of us will remember or be humming Katy’s songs even 10 years from now. In this respect, she can’t match MJ at all . They won’t be playing Teenage Dream or any ofher songs at EVERY SINGLE wedding like they do Thriller.

    That’s really quite sad. Michael Jackson is a legend who will be remembered forever. Katy Perry will probably be forgotten in a few years. Plus, if you compare a song like Man and the Mirror to California Gurls. There’s just no comparison. He songs will not last either, not even on the easy listening stations.

    UNBELIEVABLE!! This woman can’t even sing live! Don’t blame Billboard blame the teenagers who actually think this woman is talented. Michael Jackson’s record in latent far surpasses any one of these so called artist. I’m shocked this woman even has a record deal.

    I like katy perry but her music is generic compare to MJ classic songs. No body deserve to top MJ ,I guess this is time of the times. I perfer her music anyday than Britney and Kesha so she deserve all of teh sucess cause she has more talents.

    @sillyme:

    Why is it sad? Michael was a great artist & Katy is also a great artist. No one is saying Katy is better than Michael only that she tied his Bilboard record. The music field is big enough for many artists to achieve greatness & I think Michael would agree.

    Katie’s acheivement in no way deminishes Michaels’ achievements so don’t be “sad”.

    @LaCroix:

    Please do not blame all of the teenagers. Others I suppose do enjoy the crap that she spits out and calls music but some of us, like me, don’t enjoy it. It’s sad to see what we call good and bad music now. I can think of a sh*t load of bands and singers who are so underrated and don’t get the appreciation and recognition for their music, yet she puts out one catchy and bad pop song then bam! It’s somehow a hit.
