Katy Perry To Tie With Michael Jackson's Billboard Record!

| Filed under: Music MinuteMichael JacksonKaty Perry



Katy Perry is about to do something that no other female singer has done before.

Michael Jackson is the only artist who has ever had five No.1 Billboard Hot 100 hits from one single album.

That could all change soon if Katy Perry's latest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) hits the number one spot (and, come on, you know it will). She will then have five number one hits from her Teenage Dream album - a first for any female in the chart's 52-year history.

That's a HUGE accomplishment! We're rooting for you, Katy! We know Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) will hit number one. You are unstoppable!

    Surprised you didn't include anything about Gaga in the above post.

  2. 2

    This cun_t rag is a disgrace to the music industry.

  3. 3

    She cant even sing, sad what has happened to the music idustry

  4. 4

    why? all her singles suck!!!, but lil girls buy her singles, funny she sales singles, but not albums at all

  5. 5

    wow that's sad for the music industry

  6. 6

    But anyways who release 6 singles of one single album!!???

    Re: xocandii – Aaaand you ruined it by mentioning her in the first comment. Oh well, this site seems just as keen on this chick as it does on the other.

  9. 9

    something lady caca will never be able to do.

  10. 10

    i thought Gaga had like 30 number one singles from 1 album…i could swear u said so before, but then again Gaga poppin a zit is record breaking according to Mario.

  11. 11

    its a horrible day for music.

  12. 12

    Yes and because she has the internet to pimp her song, it actually is a complete different accomplishment. Really there is no comparing. MJ is still >>>> than Katy. Stop being an ass Perez, your 'artists' now are nothing in the grand scheme.

  13. 13

    she is on top as a great singles artist imo.

  14. 14

    what? she can't even sing! she is not a singer

  15. 15

    Re: Samtra – I think it is still a accomplishment. Not comparing it to Michael Jackson but just with how things are now with the music industry. Any person can have a hit song, but to have 5 off of one album? If she wasn't good, she would have been gone after her first album. Also, to be the first female at that. That is amazing and sets the ranks for other female stars.

  16. 16

    It just shows how stupid this society has become. At least MJ had some talent.

  17. 17

    good job katy!!!so surprising it's not coming from "ALBUM OF THE DECADE THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD AND BLA BLA BLAAH…" :D

  18. 18

    it's soooo sad to see nowadays music industry has sunk into the gutters….

  19. 19

    all this does is prove that the music industry is crap and people have shitty taste in music. at least michael jackson had real talent and his #1s were legit.

  20. 20

    she is a terrible singer and performer, but, her tunes are catchy … so … more power to her!

  21. 21

    Ugh, she's so uninspiring. No style, no songwriting skill, no original, authentic voice. She's the perfect singer for generation BLAH.

  22. 22

    looks like a washed up tranny there

  23. 23

    she has only become popular bc of all the tween girls out there that think she is good. Katy perry is a fucking joke. Her songs are lame and annoying, plus she is sooo overplayed on the radio. After this song lets hope she does us all a favor and disappears.

  24. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: alwaysthelovesongs – She's (or the tunes and their marketing) one of the very few better artists on offer, so what's that saying? It says that if someone really good with great songwriting was cybermarketed world wide as well as she's been, they might top this easily. What else is promoted that's actually decent? Not much.

  25. 25

    good to hear she is doing better than caca maybe you fat ass perez should call her the queen of pop now

  26. 26

    Seriously? Don't get me wrong I like her but she kind of don't deserve this. Let's face it she really can't sing, I'm not hating on her this is just a fact.

  27. 27

    I like her sometimes.. way better then that trick you are obsessed with..however.. it is just because they are really catchy pop dance sing-alongs.. it isn't like MJ who had so much talent and direction.. i agree the music industry is complete shit now.. awarding talent-less bitches that need gimmicks.. sad :/

  28. 28

    Unfortunately, this is actually nothing but bad news. Katy Perry should never be equated with Michael Jackson in any way. While he was no Christina Aguilera or Beyonce as far as vocal ability is concerned, he was a far better singer than Katy Perry. Her choked singing "from the throat" (in conjunction with improper breathing) is perfect for "tweens" and teens to listen to so that they can sing along with her and feel like they are on the same level as a "superstar." (Let's be sure to never underplay the role of the Narcissism Epidemic in the success of pop culture phenomenons.) Furthermore (and most importantly), she has her team of surefire hit producers by her side to churn out the hit singles for her. If Max Martin wrote a song for one of the idiot Real Housewives series women, it would most likely be a Top 10 single. People need to stop giving celebrity musicians credit for success that is largely the result of their producers (and co-writers, as the case may be). As Stephen Thomas Erlewine said in his review of her album for allmusic.com, "It's ironic that her best song finds her lurking behind the scenes, because Perry's greatest talent is to be a willing cog in the pop machine." We have a problem in this country where we are confusing "what is popular" with "what is important," and Katy's music is sugar: addictive and tasty, but definitely malnourishing….

  29. 29

    … P!nk was desperate for a turnaround after her anti-pop LP, Try This, was a commercial failure in the States, so she turned to Max Martin for every release since that and has seen a growth of success. Katy Perry had a lot of trouble getting a stable music career before One of the Boys came to fruition, and she seems to have followed P!nk's lead. The difference is that P!nk is a far less manufactured star, and that her lyrical contributions are far more interesting. Her desperation is apparent to all but those who aren't yet wise enough to recognize it. Superstars like Lady Gaga, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, and Beyonce could easily work with Max Martin or Dr. Luke and land several #1 singles from an album if they so desired. Thankfully, love them or hate them, they are bold enough to avoid being empty vessels for their record labels to use to make millions.

  30. 30

    embarrassing. what is with people's taste in music these days.

  31. 31

    way to go katy!! one thing haters can't knock her down for is that she's a hardworking person. I love her work ethic and her feedback shows. so amazing how well Teenage Dream album era is doing I hope she dives into a much needed break after it's run and take a breather before she releases a new album. Wow this milestone is nothing but awesome.

  32. 32

    she does not deserve her fame! this girl is average looking with annoying personality and no voice, btw she doesn't even write her songs. I wish her songs were given to someone who is talented and willing to work for it. Can someone please make her go away like forever?

  33. 33

    SMH! first Elvis gets beaten by GLEE then this!! what's next Justin Bieber is gunna dethrone Madonna from her Queen of Pop title -___- aaahhhh makes me go CRAZZY

  34. Blunt says – reply to this


    OMFG what an insult to michale who has RAw talent. Not big boobs and corny songs. This is proof music is dead in 2011

  35. 35

    Music industry is Walmart today. Everything is cheap trash that anybody can consume, throw away and go back to buy more cause is that much recycleable. The only thing that matters is the money it leaves at the end of the day, and as long theres an idiot with bad taste out there, they wont change the recipe. Katy has no talent whatsoever, she is practicaly taking the place of someone with real talent but well.

  36. 36

    You're a taint-licking kiss ass, Mario.

  37. 37

    Re: Blunt – Music officially died when Mario (Perez) started signing "singers"

  38. 38

    So…when does she take the clothes off?

  39. 39

    I can't get into TGIF. I liked ET and Teenage Dream. Thought Fireworks was so contrived!!

  40. 40

    She must be good.

  41. 41

    I'm kind of surprised by her success. Sort of indifferent toward her–like some of her stuff, some of the rest not so much–so I'm not hating. I just thought when I heard "I Kissed A Girl" that it had one hit wonder written all over it. I thought she would be the Meredith Brooks ("Bitch") of the 00s.

  42. 42

    I'm not a MJ fan but at least he had talent. This girl is nothing but two big tits. No talent.

  43. 43

    Re: beautifulchild – It was one hit wonder. Thats why she changed her whole style and added a bunch of costumes to it too. She sells through image. First image, later easy catchy tunes. Does anybody remember anymore when she used to play the guitar while trying to sing live?. Both things together were hideous.

  44. 44

    I really don't care if she's hard working the girl cannot sing. Well at least we know that only one of these two ppl has legit talent with an artistic vision while the other pays ppl to have artistic vision for her.

  45. 45

    to anyone that is actually buying her music… YOU HAVE NO TASTE AND ARE BRAINDEAD TO LIKE HER SHIT MUSIC! if i had kids i wouldnt even let them listen to this shit cause its mindless and bland and not even catchy.

  46. 46

    suck on that Gaga

  47. 47

    She can thank the gays and tweens for her success, just like Gaga. It's pitiful that these groups control what is considered good music these days.

  48. 48

    Katy Perry is fun and her music is catchy but I can't help but feel like it meant so much more for Michael Jackson than it will for Katy Perry. There is no comparison. I think it says a lot more that in Michael Jackson's day, people had to physically leave their house to go buy the entire cd/tape whereas people can sit on their ass and click a button and purchase a single song in two seconds. There's gotta be something similar to inflation in effect in music sales today. Congrats to Katy on her big achievement though!

  49. 49

    IF only she could sing. I finally had to send the dairy herd to slaughter cause after hearing her music they reFUUUUUUUUsed to give milk.

  50. SF90 says – reply to this


    This is because no talented artist nowadays release 5 singles from one album. All bands now usually just release 3, sometimes 4 ’cause they don't care about milking their album like the musicians who have no talent.

  51. 51

    For the record: The 5 # 1 singles were from MJ's Bad album, not Thriller. They were: I Just Can't Stop Loving You, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Man in the Mirror and Dirty Diana - songs still played on radio today. I'm not sure you will be able to say that about ET, or California Girls 25 years from now.

  52. 52

    All hail the Illuminati poster girl.

  53. 53

    Re: Henwii – Teenage Dream has been in the top 20 for the last year, it's obviously selling good. One Of the Boys sold over 5 million copies, that's not bad at all. Her album sales are doing better than a lot of other peoples. Her singles are just doing amazing though.

  54. 54

    I really don't know why people are so pissed off. Because she's going to get the 5th #1? Obviously MJ is more talented, EVERYBODY knows that, but these singles are catchy and all of them deserved the #1 spot. Stop hating on Katy because she's having success. I'd rather see Katy Perry succeed over Lady Gaga. People need to grow up, my god. There are adults on this site acting like little 10 year old girls because she's about to break a record. Pathetic.

  55. 55

    People are vicious. Noone is comparing her to MJ, the only thing they are doing is saying that the other person to reach this accomplishment is MJ and Katy is the first female. She seems like a really kind young women and I don't see why everyone is hating on her. Sure her music has no depth but they are catchy tunes in a sea of..well catchy tunes. I'd much rather see her win this than people like Chris Brown, Lady Gaga, or Miley Cyrus. She started out singing Christian tunes and that wasn't selling so she had to reinvent herself into what people will buy. Who really knows if this is what she wants to be doing? She has come a long way from "I Kissed a Girl" and I wish her success because she seems really genuine.

  56. 56

    the Illuminati strikes again….duum dum dummm

  57. 57

    even if she got 5 #1 songs we'll forget about them after a few months, legends never die, MJs songs is still playing on the radio after more than 20 years and THAT'S real talent, i hope she won't get more number ones, she only does simple bubble-gum shit

  58. 58

    Re: ladyloowho11 – haha teenage dream sold 1.5mil in america since its been out and worldwide it sold 3.2 mil since release, hell taylor swift( 5 mil since release) gaga (4mil since release) adele (7 mil since release) rihanna (4.9mil since release) and all those albums came out after hers haha. She also cant perform like any of those girls, katy is lucky with singles haha.

  59. 59

    THAT MEANS NOTHING ANYMORE! With teeny bobbers buying evrything and anything with or without talent, this really means nothing. Her music is aweful bubblegum pop. That isn't talent, it's just good producing and good marketing from her team.

  60. 60

    Re: bleahf

  61. 61

    *****THE DIFFERENCE*****
    MJ didnt just land No. 1s he also broke RECORD/ALBUM sales worldwide. Lets not forget MJ combined album sales totaled 750 million worldwide. This is a feat dear KP will never hit simply because she CAN'T SING (live!) and can only push quick over produced singles.

  62. 62

    Oh well…as long as its not lady caca

  63. 63

    I'm not saying Katy is on the same level as the late Jackson, but if she was smart enough to put good record selling producers on the making of her album you can't criticize her for being smart. But I can't permit for you to say that she's just like all the others cause she isn't Miss G. was supposed to have the album of the year… where did her Born This Way led her? Full Blown Disaster!!! She could have made that video on for everyone to feel identified and a celebration to uniqueness and equality, but she didn't she just dances in her bra and shacked her wig… Dissapointing. At least K. Perry had some kick ass fun ideas for her video TGIF and her video Firework was more about acceptance and equality that all of Gaga's ids put together and she's the one who spuriously is fighting for gay rights. I'm happy that lil KP is getting recognized for her success she's great and I wish her a fabulous career. xoxo

    Well to be fully honest although her lyrics and her music might be "empty" she has brains and actual talent as you can see if you took some of ur time to actually learn her story. Also comparing her with washed out has been Aguilera is really not only pathetic, but also showing how much lack of taste and knowledge of what it takes to be a good musician. Aguilera hasn't had a single since white people were presidents. Yes, she has a good voice, but her writing skills are as nasty as Britney's in her latest album one of her song said and quote "I fell like my world's been infected" Really? Seriously? she'd only a fat girl with a blessed voice. Beyonce latest album is a full blown disaster I would be shocked if it even gets to Platinum. Madonna has been here for ages so its ok to say she's a Superstar, but even she'd had some song that arena the list of the world's worst songs. Plus, you cannot tell me she isn't a Pop record label creation cause SHE IS! As for Miss Gaga although she is one of the best artist of our generation I believe she's still to young to tell if she's here to Stay.

  65. 65

    The difference is Michaels music lives on!! 20 or 30 years from no one will remember teenage dream or E.T!!

  66. 66

    why , perez do you continue with this charade. just leave the king alone, noone and i mean noone will ever touch the king. stop forcing these wannabe's down our throats

  67. 67

    listen up i got one more thing to say , if katy sold 800million albums she still couldnt touch the king he competed with the best and half if not most of them are dead so she would be nothing more that a T shirt compared to that.

  68. 68

    She's cool. I wonder if she will be watching the premiere of Extreme Chef?? Probably. Its this Thursday, June 30 on the Food Network at 10:30/9:30c. Check it out!!!

  69. 69

    The big difference is that 25 years ago the music was extremely competitive, songs would slowly climb the charts and truly fight just to get into the top 10..a #1 back then was a huge accomplishment not everyone could do….. but now i have noticed that as soon as a catchy ok song is released the following week is already a #1, that only says how bad the music is today.
