Giddy up, KatyCats, because this will make your day!

Katy Perry rode her Dark Horse all the way to the top! The Princess of Pop is back at number one on the Billboard Top 100!!!

This is already the cupcake diva's second chart topper from Prism and her ninth to date!!! Wow!! That's straight up AMAZEHORSEBALLZ!

Believe it or not, Katy never even expected her Juicy J collaboration to gallop this far ahead of the pack!

She humbly admitted:

"This No. 1 is the most unexpected one I've ever had. Dark Horse has been a dark horse of a song, since August when the KatyCats voted to release it early on iTunes, before 'PRISM' even came out. I'm so thrilled and grateful to have these moments."

Ha! Dark Horse was a dark horse? You pitch-perfect pun queen, you! We love it! We just can't believe you thought audiences would say neigh to this incredible track!!

Unconditionally might not have roared to the top of the charts (which, btw, was a bunch of horse manure) like Roar did, but this one was a horse of a different color! Well, if dark is a color.

Either way, we're glad KP got back on the horse that bucked her and road it all the way to victory!

Woo hoo! Now who's in favor of voting to rename charlie horses katy horses?

    It's SO sad to me that these days songs get to the #1 spot not on their own merits. It gets there b/c people like the artist, not b/c the song is actually good. I get it, Katy is very likable but am I the only one that thought ROAR was pretty awful? I hate chopping singing. John Mayer must have learned to bite his tongue until it bleeds.

    Hey, fans of Oldonna . . . Katy Perry is what a Queen really is: one who is actually relevant because she's on the radio and the charts. Oh, did I mention that a "queen" also has the ability to make it to #1? When was The Corpse ever at No. 1???? LOL . . . in the 1900s. LOL. All forgotten now…

    Re: doppelganger – no youre not the only one, roar is pretty aweful, idk why it was so successful, i think it had to do with the whole Gaga competition but any music lover knew that song was a mash up of previous successful empowerment anthems, it was a cheap hit song

    She only gets number 1s just bc her fan base is teens with no music taste whatsoever. This is why she does not have a grammy because people who win grammys actually make good music.

    Re: doppelganger – Roar was your everyday radio song, nothing special. Since Russell Brand said she was a cold mussel and john mayer dumped her (the ultimate humiliation) she came up with this bulk jungle theme, anyway there was nothing artistic about this album, it's one of those "die/survive" album

    Re: doppelganger – I don't get it either. She had a few good songs off the last album, and "I Kissed A Girl" was a killer song, but everything I've seen and heard her do has been a rehash of what someone else has done before. There's nothing artistic about her whatsoever. She just skates through the whole thing, and everyone just eats it up.

    I don't understand why every time there's news about katy people like u come and try to destroy her. Dark horse has reached N1 and you're talking about how awful roar was?
    among the current singers katy is actually a good one. The best if u ask me.
    also her fan base is not limited to teens with no taste in music(vin diesel!) I think it's pretty absurd to say anyone who likes katy has no taste the ratings don't lie. really i fell sorry for u guys.

    Ahhh, poor girl. She could not win a Grammy. Lorde came in and beat her. I wonder why she keeps getting #1 singles and albums but no Grammys. Maybe because her music sounds like it came from a Disney movie. Well, maybe next time Katy. Maybe if you stop using animal themes for your songs. LOL ! ROAR, Dark Horse, lol ! WTF. Katy you are older than Lorde but you sound like you are younger than Lorde. The Grammys are not going to take you serious until your music gets more mature. For now both Lady Gaga and Lorde have more Grammys. Sorry but I rather listen to them. But good luck next time. LOL !

    Well done Katy! I love her, Gaga, and Ke$ha the most so if any of them win I'm happy. I don't think that this is Katy's best work but I'm happy to see her be successful. I cannot wait until Gaga releases "Venus" as her single next month. I think it will go #1 as well! Good luck to you fine young ladies of pop!
