Wowsa!

Katy Perry's "California Gurls" has broken the record for most weekly plays in the 17-year-history of Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart!

The catchy tune logged 11,816 plays the week of June 21-27, bypassing Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" that had 11,224 plays back in February.

It's a summer anthem!

Congrats, Katy!

    I'll admit the song is catchy, but the music video is absolutely horrible.



  2. 2

    Katy Perry sucks!!!



  3. 3

    yes it is. the music video has absolutely nothing to do with the song.



  4. 4

    YAAAAYYYY!!! Katy Perry is awesome!!! MUCH better than Gaga, Rhianna, or Christina.



  5. 5

  6. 6

  11. 11

    katy petty sucks. so does mainstream radio.

    and seriously, this dumb bitch criticizes lady gaga for her video after she makes a song about kissing a girl and liking it?

    cellulite infested hypocrite. go suck your ugly fucking waste of oxygen crack head boyfriend's dick and shut the fuck up!



  12. 12

    cant stand that song!



  13. 13

    She is pretty and doesnt sing too good but at least does her songs. Yet that song in particular is bad bad bad and I could only listened to half of it cause it was annoying. They must really be paying out for her song to get air.



  14. 14

    So much shit on the radio. Cannot even turn it on anymore…



  15. 15

    the only reason this song is selling is because the majority of Americans are easily brainwashed idiots who have no idea what good music really is. the lyrics are stupid. the song is pointless. how about something original for once? or something that ISN'T all computer generated? what happened to artists that write their OWN music and sing it themselves instead of letting the computer do the work for them?
    REAL talent comes from people who can write their own song and sing it themselves.



  16. 16

    Um anyone can do that. It's called Payola and if there's any question it's alive and well, Katy Perry breaking a record is proof Perry's song is the worst piece of crap I've heard in years



  17. 17

    I wish Perez read his comments.
    Billboard is the bible to which all sales, plays, downloads etc… are judged by.
    Not the made up records his tramp breaks. Totally meaningless unless its from Billboard. Remember that the next time Perez says his skank broke some record from the international academy of cocksuckers & motherfuckers. It don’t mean shit.
    Congrats Katy, I want to bust a nut on those boobs & creamy calves.



  18. 18

    That song is awful, I change it every time it comes on. It's like nails on a chalkboard…. just plan awful. The masses are asses…

    Re: gapeachy – Couldn't agree w/ you more!!!!



  20. 20

    Oh. I haven't even heard it, LOL!



  21. 21

    I HATE KATY PERRY. SHES A FUCKING BITCH. HER SONG IS ANNOYING, SHE ANNOYS ME. YUP I DO WISH SHED DIE IN A CARCRASH. UGH GET HER OUT OF THIS WORLD LOL



  22. 22

    that song is terrible



  23. 23

    That's more a sign of how homogenized American top 40 radio is becoming. Isn't it funny that we get this "record" broken a couple times every year?



  24. 24

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this only mean that she's the most undeservedly overpromoted piece of trash pseudo-artist that America's ever seen? Why are people congratulating her?



  25. 25

    Re: gapeachy – she criticized gaga called referred to her new video as cheap and look at california gurls…omg I can't stand pop music these days. fuckin shame.



  26. 26

    Re: xoxprincess – Be careful wishing death upon ppl rather u hate them or are jealous of them…what u put out comes back to u.



  27. 27

    The other day you posted " the dumbest lyrics from Xtina's album Bionic". CA Girls is one of the dumbest songs I've ever heard..



  28. 28

    She can't sing, but her songs ARE CATCHY!



  29. 29

    congrats!



  30. 30

    pretending to be a lesbian for attention is as cheap as using blasphemy for entertainment.



  31. 31

    Perky Twilight teens and mindless sorority girls have to listen to *something* this summer, right?

    the song is TERRIBLE!! Catchy maybe, but that don't make it good.



  35. 35

    a truly simplistic song an 8th grader could have written………peoples taste in this country is bland as fuck……



  36. 36

    FINALLY! You refuse to give Rihanna credit, refue to give KeSha the time of day…Now you give Katy Perry props! Did Lady Gaga diss you or something??? What gives?



  37. 37

    hEY! GOOGLE how DOES kATY perry measure UP?

    How DOES katy Perry measure up?



  38. 38

    why is it trendy to purposely spell things wrong? it's effing stupid.



  39. 39

    O great. so this annoying song is played more than any other song on the radio?? Good thing I haven't listened to pop radio much lately. I call this song the worst earworm song out there…once it gets in your head it is painful. ugh that girl has lacking talent.



  40. 40

    The song is so mediocre. And she looks like a blow-up doll.



  41. 41

    at first i didin't like the song but now its kinda good :p



  42. 42

    YAY!! Exciting news! Katy makes history!



  43. 43

    Hey, any other straight guys on this thread? Would anybody else bang the shit outta this chick, or is it just me? I think her music is absolute shit, but FUCK is she fine!

    WOW!! I'm so happy for Katy!!Come on Katy! Break more records!!



  45. 45

    Bravo Katy!! You deserve all the best! Fantastic song!



  46. 46

    it might have something to do with the video



  47. 47

    It's probably played in California non-stop and no where else.
    Re: swissmiss989 – I agree, but it isn't only Americans that fall for this crap music. The British listen to shit also, and we don't have the plethora of radio stations like you do in the States. The only stations where I live (and I'm in a large city) are BBC Radio 1, a few other pop-crap stations like it, BBC Gaelic, and classical music. Occasionally, you can get a decent classic rock song on BBC2, but the options are limited.



  48. 48

    I hate that song…….I don't care how much they try to shove it down our throats.



  49. 49

    the two songs are both rubbish and sound similar enough to be interchangeable. who cares?



  50. 50

    omg hate hate hate this song.. so annoying and it's always on the fucking radio. i can't wait til it ends!



  51. 51

    HAHAHAHA oh haters gotta hate again huh? anywho CONGRATS TO KATY!!!! yes I am from California so I freaking LOVE this song. We are fine.fresh. and freaking fierce. don't hate, appreciate. i wish they play this more often though, i hear tik tok more than i hear this song on air. plus hello! she's like a freaking barbie doll, perfect and with an awesome kickass personality. she sings pretty well live from the concerts i've been to (forgot some lyrics, but admits it and makes up for it). lovers gotta love. LOve Ya Katy!!!! make history, at least you got something to enjoy from these ruthless haters!!! :D

  53. 53

JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND ENJOY THE MUSIC YOU FUCKING PATHEITC SACKS OF LIFE. DAMN!!

    Re: imgoingtobeGFF
    Or don't enjoy and just don't listen to it if you don't like it. But whatever you do, just don't be giant morons for hitting on the persons behind the song, it's pathetic.
    I agree with you….



  55. 55

    Sounds an AWFUL lot like "Tik Tok" in my opinion…produced by the same people….formula McMusic.
