Queen of Pop: Katy Perry reaches Michael Jackson's Hot 100 record (VIDEO)
Elena Vnorovscaia / Chişinău / Moldova.ORG / -- Katy Perry’s current single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week.
This result made the pop star Perry the second artist and the first woman in the 53-year history of the Hot 100 to gain five No. 1 singles off the same album.
That is not just an amazing result. In fact this record makes Katy the Queen of Pop. And these are not just loud words because Perry ties with Michael Jackson by having the most singles off the same album to hit No. 1
Here are these 5 incredibly popular hits: "California Gurls" (featuring Snoop Dogg), "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”.
Perry's “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” just bumped LMFAO’s "Party Rock Anthem” from the top spot, enabling her to make Hot 100 history.
The late King of Pop sent five songs to No. 1 on the Hot 100 from "Bad" in 1987-88: "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" (with Siedah Garrett); the title track; "The Way You Make Me Feel"; "Man in the Mirror"; and, "Dirty Diana."
Jackson notched his quintet of No. 1s from "Bad" over nine months and two weeks. Perry's five toppers from "Dream" spans one year, two months and one week, dating to the first week at No. 1 for "Gurls" on the Hot 100 dated June 19, 2010. (The newest Hot 100 is dated Aug. 27, 2011).
