| Filed under: Katy Perry

Calling it right now - best year of her life!!!

As of this week, despite E.T.'s dip in the charts to the #2 spot, Katy Perry has made musical history. She is now the first artist EVER in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to remain in the top 10 for a full year! A full year! That means, ever since California Girls dropped a year ago, she hasn't once NOT had a song in the top ten.

Incredible!!!

Oh, and there is one more thing…

As of this week, E.T. has reached its 3 million mark in digital sales. That's an accolade in itself, except that Katy's already done this five times before. With this sixth song reaching the same plateau, she becomes the first artist in digital history to have six songs sell over 3 million copies!!!

There are no words! She's rendered us speechless! There's nothing she can't do!

Best. Year. Ever! Best album, best tour…and we think she might've gotten married at some point too!

We can't say it enough: CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    I really dont get it? why does she sell so much her song are good but not that good



  2. 2

    He Mario did you see Gaga's dip on itunes yet the new singles is another loser.



  3. 3

    Wow, I am surprised this was even posted since it takes the light away from Lady Gaga because we all know she could never do it. Congrats



  4. 4

    And yet you still fawn over Gag-Gag. Hmmmmm. Very curious.



  5. 5

    Considering the top 10 is usually a good indication of what the most generic, mass-produced and uninspired music out there is at any given moment, yeah, congratulations.



  6. 6

    Overrated illumanati whore.



  7. 7

    Congrats to katy better!!!



  8. 8

    I like California Girl, Teenage Dream and E.T. Firework however, is super obnoxious.



  9. 9

    i love how katy perry is accomplishing everything gaga isnt. katy perry just puts out music and it sells.



  10. 10

    all you people are obsessed with gaga even when she's not being talked about. First off all Katy has other people writing her music, she sings what the industry tells her. Unlike gaga she doesnt care about hits she cares about making a difference. She doesnt give a fuck about lolli pops and gum drops … she sings from her heart!!!



  11. 11

    Re: Carolina Davis – if she didnt care about hits shed shut the fuck up and let her music speak for itself instead of flapping her gums about how this album will blow away every other album this decade…if she didnt care about hits she wouldnt be releasing FIVE singles from her album hoping one would stick long enough to be charted..



  12. 12

    Fabbb. I adore her and fell in love with her album back in october and listen to it at least two months straight lol it's old to me now but happy to see shes getting recognition



  13. 13

    Re: Carolina Davis
    Lady trampface wanna make a difference? … HAHAHAHA YE, PUTTING DUCT TAPE ON UR NIPPLES IS MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD …

    Lady shit shit is nothing compared to katy
    and you said that lady tranny writes her own stuff … wow .. xd another victim of the tranny's brainwashing .. (she has atleast 3-4 songwriters on all of her songs..)
    atleast - katy doesnt rip off madonna and claim to be original and creative xD



  14. 14

    Re: Pacific – Yeah, the E! network TOTALLY overdid it during awards season. Same with that Just Dance video game. Good thing I don't listen to the radio, otherwise I'd be bleeding out of my ears.



  15. 15

    Proof that people have no taste. This big-titted goon has no talent.



  16. 16

    Re: Rubber Rat – Obviously she does if she accomplished something that neither Madonna, Britney, or Lady Gaga could do.



  17. 17

    Just shows the difference talent makes instead relying on tape covered nipples to sell your music plus I think the latest album from Lady Gag Gag is a direct ripoff of Madonna and I think that turned off a lot of people (including me)



  18. 18

    Re: pineapplestar – exactly my thoughts - I also don't listen to the radio, just to avoid useless and mindless crap like her's (and Gaga's, and Rhianna's….and the list goes on).



  19. 19

    Well, when the playing field is down to 10 people that are all mostly terrible, what does one expect.

  20. M: says – reply to this

    wheres gaga wheres gaga?? no gaga cause shes a flop.thats what wannabes are. Katy is so more better.she is a huge madonna fan but katty has her own thing u know. gaga doesnt have personality



  21. 21

    A-MA-ZING. She's honestly the best– love her!



  22. 22

    Re: M: – MADONNA SUCKS!!!



  23. 23

    You people are pathetic. This article doesn't mention GaGa ONCE, yet you all can't stop talking about her.

    Re: flat chest tranny – HAHA love it, well said



  26. 26

    I love Katy Perry. E.T. is incredible and I just love Firework.



  27. 27

    haha!!



  28. 28

    Re: yeaman – It is kind of hard to compare anyone but gaga to her. The music industry has changed so much in the past 5-10 years and the way music is bought allows for more generic overly publisized music to be more popular and sell easier than something else.



  29. 29

    Gaga not paying you enough?



  30. 30

    I gotta say I love Katy Perry. She isn't the best, but her music is enjoyable, & she isn't one big sloppy mess of Grace jones/madonna/bowie/ & so on.



  31. 31

    Ah! Re: Carolina Davis – Well what do you expect? This is basically a second rate Lady Gaga fan site. We all know how Perez LOVES her and worships her like some musical prophet. They use it as their defense, and you can't use "she doesn't write her songs." She's not Britney, Katy has writing credit on all her songs, on both her albums.



  32. 32

    Re: Samtra – I know, those were the top names I could think of, it was just to make a point though. Britney is around right now still, and Lady Gaga is around and neither have made this accomplishment



  33. 33

    Katy>GaShitGa



  34. 34

    Re: Carolina Davis – yeah right, cause she really is in love with judas and "show me your teeth" is a new pick-up phrase. katy sucks, she can't sing or dance, but her songs have a fucking coherent message



  35. 35

    Re: M:
    Oh, whatever. If GaGa didn't exist, and Katy was the biggest star in the world right now, you'd hate her too and would constantly compare her to Madonna.



  36. 36

    i hate pop music but i feel happy that good fortune has been blessed upon someone (: (:. she is extremely beautiful and i aspire to be as successful!

    She must have the best dam* group around her. Kudos to her management team, and of course to the lovely Ms. Perry herself. She works hard.

  38. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: M: – What kind of karma are you spreading? You should think about that. What you give out, you get back. You should move on.



  39. 39

    Re: Carolina Davis – Katy Perry writes music and lyrics do your research, don't let the pop princess image fool you. She's a true talent!!!



  40. 40

    Re: flat chest tranny
    "atleast - katy doesnt rip off madonna and claim to be original and creative"
    Maybe not, but she'll always be a poser. She's nothing but a glorified singles artist. She'll never have a monumental album or gain the respect of critics, who have been panning her and calling out her out for her lack of authenticity since her first album.



  41. 41

    Very talented and pretty too!! Congratulations to her!! :D



  42. 42

    None of this changes the fact that when all is said and done, Katy's music only holds writing merit, and is a testament to how far pitch correcting technology has come.
    She is gorgeous, and intelligent, and can definitely pen a great song, but let's not fool ourselves, even now after she's "improved" her singing, put her on stage with a microphone and you'll get eye candy who can't sing a note to save her life.
    Also, on a side note - E.T was SO MUCH better with Kanye West, no one needed him to groan in the middle of the track and call it rap.



  43. 43

    I presume Gaga has already noticed the kind of backlash her obnoxious famewhoring (not to mention sad copy-catting) has set off. I love Katy Perry. Great, catchy. ORIGINAL, pop music, like Gaga used to produce. The thing is, Katy actually has a fucking grip on reality. Gaga thinks she is one of God's turds or something.



  44. 44

    BTW, Teenage Dream is a memorably good pop song.

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    45

    Re: maxie pad – Lol @43. Yeah, Teenage Dream, decent rite of passage tune. I thought so too.



  46. 46

    It is amazing , especially since she can't even sing her own songs live, she sounds horrible. She's got the look, but not the voice, ET gets on my effin nerves. she will never fill the stadiums Madonna does. Surry,



  47. 47

    See, this is why she deserved to win Grammy's this year, not your GagGag friend who snatch them on the same catergory as Katy. Hope next year she'll win.



  48. 48

    HAHA I LOVE ALL THE HATE DIRECTED TOWARD GAGA YOU GUYS ARE SUCH IDIOTS
    first of all lady gaga is an icon in the making
    shes broken more records and won more awards than katy perry in less time
    second off all lady gaga is a really good vocalist and katy perry cant hold a note while singing live
    lady gaga creates music that is art and that is inspiring while katy perry drops music that her label tells her too
    katy perry wrote the stupidest lyrics in music history - "do you ever feel like a plastic bag drifting through the wind"
    if anyone is overrated its katy perry because she makes music that is aimed toward the goal of being appealing to the masses- there is nothing meaningful about katy perrys music and its funny how you guys call gaga overrated when shes the only genuine artist and musician to come on the pop landscape since madonna

    Re: onyx1590
    wow are you serious yeah let me break it down
    - california gurls- having sex on the beach and wearing bikinis
    - teenage dream- again having sex and partying it up
    - firework- drifiting through the wind feeling like a plastic bag
    - ET- falling in love with an alien

    and FYI
    judas is about forgiveness and betrayal
    its about forgiving yourself for past transgressions that haunt you everybody has a judas and a jesus in their life - its the ying and yang of a soul- the darkness and light

    teeth is about the truth and how a person is afraid to face the truth
    people often get scared of having to face the truth and the song teeth is about being fearless and conquering the lies and the demons that are a part of your life

    katy perry is just a stupid bubble gum pop singer who cant sing live
    i am not surprised becase gaga is wierd and strange - people dont get her and often call her a devil worshipper or an attention whore - ppl are just not smart enough to comprehend her artistic expressions

    all the music legends- MJ, Madonna, sting, elton john, and many more have dubbed gaga the next big thing
    katy perry is just a flash in the pan
