Katy Perry Makes Billboard History

Published: Tuesday 2nd Aug 2011 by David

Congratulations are in order for Katy Perry today.

Not satisfied with making her LP one of the highest selling releases of the last two years, her fans have made it possible for the colourful singer to break yet another groundbreaking record on the Billboard Charts.

Find out what record she has broken now below…

With her single ‘Last Friday Night‘ now #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart, Ms.Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream‘ is the first LP in 19 years to spawn 5 #1 singles.

The success of ‘Friday’ follows the #1 smash hits, ‘California Gurls‘, ‘E.T‘, ‘Firework‘ and the LP’s lead track of the same name.

Job well done.

    GO KATY PERRY
    SHE IS COMING TO SNATCH WIGS

    HOPE SHE GET HER 6TH #1 TO PROOVE THAT U DONT NEED DESPERATE STRATEGIES TO SELL.

    GO CHARTY

  2. LTM August 2, 2011

    What about the Hot 100? Is she #1 there?

  3. #1QueenGaga August 2, 2011

    All smoke and mirrors. No real talent other then a pair of boobs.

  4. They pick me up with 8(ISTANN4GAGA) August 2, 2011

    Not knocking her because her singles are SLAYING but I’m going to need it to hit #1 on the Hot 100 before you make such articles so soon.

    if we were going by positions on the POP songs chart,then my fave would have had 7.

  5. SMOKEY August 2, 2011

    Congrats Katy and she got it without selling s**. I remember how she dressed at the children show. She got her s*** together and is doing it with class.

  6. LTM August 2, 2011

    Last Friday Night just broke E.T’s record as most played song in 1 week. Shes slaying her own records!!

  7. JJfan1814 August 2, 2011

    Song-writing is a talent booboo & she writes her own music…! Give credit where credit is due. Her music appeals to the audience.

  8. LTM August 2, 2011

    This is 2 years in a row that she is slaying the charts. Katy owns Billboard. Her tour is slaying as well. Teenage Dream is increasing in world wide sales each week. Im proud of her!!! Katy<<3

    @IStann4GaGa
    Billboard mentioned GaGa in the article. She had 4 #1s on the Pop Charts from TF.

  9. lax August 2, 2011

    Good for you katy, keep it rolling just like that
    very happy for you.

  10. LTM August 2, 2011

    Katy writes her own songs and can play the accoustic guitar. She slays with accoustic performances.

    And Katy can sing:

  11. Slaydele, Slay$ha, & R.I.P Amy Slayhouse(Slaying B****** from Heaven) August 2, 2011

    @#1QueenGaGa
    Shes slaying. Deal with it.

  12. U wanna rumble with the bees huh??? (queenbey) August 2, 2011

    #1 on the pop (tart) charts IS NOT the same as being #1 on BB 100

  13. Cher Lloyd Stan August 2, 2011

    Good for her!! Teenage Dream has really launched her to superstar status. My friend went to her California Dreams Tour and said she was great.

  14. Harlem August 2, 2011

    HAHAHAHAHA, laughing at the person that said Katy writes her own songs..lmao

  15. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    I didn’t know that.You & the better portion of Katy perry’s fans deserve to celebrate…Fans of Perrylicious caliber…..(http://www.tinyurl.com/katyurfave)

  19. ITSVERYPERRY August 2, 2011

  21. U wanna rumble with the bees huh??? (queenbey) August 2, 2011

    Wow…..

    Rihanna use to be so beautiful

  22. LTM August 2, 2011

    @IStann4GaGa
    No suprise Perrylicious isnt here.

  23. LTM August 2, 2011

    “While “Friday” is the fifth Pop Songs No. 1 from “Dream,” it’s Perry’s seventh topper on the list overall. She scored two No. 1s from her prior album, “One of the Boys”: “Hot N Cold” (2008) and “Waking Up in Vegas” (2009). She ties Lady Gaga and P!nk for second-most No. 1s in the chart’s archives, one away from Rihanna’s record eight leaders”

    From the Billboard article.

  24. Cher Lloyd Stan August 2, 2011

    When did the Rihanna gif get added?

  25. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    @ Kat Deluna Trick be quiet…i know who you are talking about…thats why kat deluna is a flop !!!! 0 number ones !!

  26. Naomi August 2, 2011

    Go Katy! I have to say though, Katy Perry does not write all of your music as some of you delusional stans would like to believe. But congrats KP anyway.

    P.s. Dear Perrylicious, if you show up in this post to rave about Katy, please die.

  27. NICK August 2, 2011

    THIS IS JUST SAD THAT THIS CRAP CALL MUSIC IS BREAKING RECORDS-SAD JUST SAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. They pick me up with 8(ISTANN4GAGA) August 2, 2011

    lol I wanted to see if there was a gif from ‘Ur so gay’ where she pulls down that kendoll’s pants but i couldn’t find it….

    lol,I know….Perrylicious & Laceflop are fake.

  29. YeaBey Is Schoolin’ Life August 2, 2011

    Congratz Katy…I don’t use you but congratz….I heard she is about to tie or break some MJ record is that true? (something about getting 5 #1 Hot 100 singles off of a No.1 album)

  30. LTM August 2, 2011

    Katy co-writes all of her songs. Every last song. I will post the credits to them all if I have to.

  31. YeaBey Is Schoolin’ Life August 2, 2011

    That’s the Rihanna I was a fan off :’) *sniff sniff* LOL.. Take A bow was my S***!!!

  32. Perez Hilton August 2, 2011

    Lady gaga and her team including Perez Hilton are trying the put Christina down since Christina 2008 vma performance (Nobody knows about lady gaga back then, so it immediately boosted her fame). And the severely dramatic attacking was when the Bionic get released, Lady gaga and her team (her boss Akon)were throwing huge money to those media, especially the small entertaining websites to crush Christina down. Lady gaga is of little talent, not a good singer but a b**** with lots of gimmicks, she knows how to grab attention and boost her fame. Katy Perry, Rihanna, Adele, nicki minaj are better singers than Lady gaga, at least they don’t use the mean way to get success.

  33. LTM August 2, 2011

    @YeaBey
    5 #1s off one album is a record MJ holds. If Last Friday Night(currently at #2) reaches #1, Katy will be the second person to do so, as well as the first female.

  34. YeaBey Is Schoolin’ Life August 2, 2011

    @LTM
    Oh ok…Good for her..

  35. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    Good for Katy i like her songs but i`m just not a diehard fan !!

  36. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    I mean i`m not a fan ! Just only her music !

  37. ThatRyeGuy August 2, 2011

    I’m not one to listen to mainstream pop, but Katy Perry deserves it. She’s one of the few that actually sing.

  38. CambellMonster August 2, 2011

    WHAT THE F***? KATY WILL NEVER EVER BE A REAL ARTIST. SHE WILL NEVER HAVE MULTI PLATINUM ALBUMS, SHE WILL NEVER HAVE A GRAMMY, AND SHE WILL NEVER EVER SELL OUT A TOUR. THIS IS WHAT SEPARATES AN ARTIST AND A POPSTAR.

  39. U wanna rumble with the bees huh??? (queenbey) August 2, 2011

    What does GaGa have to do with this post???

  40. CheerfuL Cynic XD August 2, 2011

    smh she has ZERO talent

  41. tuffy August 2, 2011

    Katy Perry is the greatest woman who has ever lived!

  42. iLoveXtina August 2, 2011

    This b**** is slaying the charts yes! & her album is still selling, on average, 20k+ each week in the U.S. even though her album was released last year, *files nails*

  43. LOL August 2, 2011

    u go girl!!!
    DEAD at that rihanna gif

  44. JER August 2, 2011

    This blog is SO ignorant. The Hot 100, the Pop Songs, Top 40 Tracks, Mainstream Top 40, are not all the same f****** thing.

  45. iloverihanna>beyonceislame August 2, 2011

    Who cares. Rihanna stil dominates the charts and is the best! Katy Perry is just some gaga and madonna knock-off!

  46. rihanna is the best! You will deal August 2, 2011

    News flash. I don’t care if this madonna gaga wannabe is on the charts. She’ll never have worldwide appeal like Rihanna.

  47. RihannaNAVY August 2, 2011

    Congrats to Katy.
    We luv here
    The 2 BFFs are doing the [email protected] thing.

  48. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    I respect Katy at what she is doing but she will never be worldwide appeal like Rihanna, Beyonce, or Gaga !!!!! She is just national not international well…she is but not like MJ international !!

  49. jamir21: I STAN 4 THE BEEHIVE&THE NAVY !!!! August 2, 2011

    Britney, Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna have worldwide appeal unlike Katy !
    I respect Katy but she doesnt have worldwide appeal…though !!

  52. nice_gurl August 3, 2011

    Well congrats Katy. Her songs are catchy but not a massive fan of her ’cause her songs do not show a lot of emotion.

  53. LTM August 3, 2011

    @rihanna is the best! You will deal
    B**** take a seat

  54. Skin. August 3, 2011

    Yes!
    Is better than Beyonce and GaGa at all :))

  55. Perry Power August 3, 2011

    Princess Katy!!!! Last Friday Night will be #1 on the Hot 100

  56. Perry Power August 3, 2011

    How do you guys get pictures on your account?

  57. Trey S August 3, 2011

    just wanted to say something: thank you MAX MARTIN AND DOCTOR LUKE FOR GIVING ALL THOSE PERFECT PRODUCTIONS AND WRITTINGS (to stargate too)

  58. That Tree August 3, 2011

    #iCant with this basic b**** getting headlines for the flop ass POP SONGS chart. Katy stans r TOO delusional with this s***. Watch as Party Rock Anthem & Lighters block Kunty Perra from tying that record and that b**** won’t even be relevant after her 3rd album. And yes I know you Kunty stans, hating on PRA (even though I will admit its not that great) just for the fact that its # 1 on itunes and keeping delusional thoughts in ur head that Capitol Records is going 2 do something. But when Kunty flops 3 to 5 years from now, and you guys jump the stan ship, I will be laughing at ya’ll asses. Mark my words.

  59. Perry Power August 3, 2011

    ^^^^
    What a useless block of words. Katy Perry slays, deal with it. When she flops, she flops. But thats not going to happen anytime soon.

  60. s August 3, 2011

    King Katy and you lessers will deal, writes, sings plays guitar

  61. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 3, 2011

    Good for her!When I read about a groundbreaking record, I thought it was about the main charts…a bit misrepresented, don’t you think?
    It would also be useful to mention which was the album that spawned 5 No.1 Pop hits 19 years ago.’Dangerous’???

  62. Andrew August 3, 2011

    Hats off to Katy ;D

  63. absolved August 3, 2011

    And in the meantime her album is still only platinum. Albums with fewer hits than it have been 3, 4, 5, 6x platinum. Yeah, good job selling those $1.29 singles Katy. LOL

    Wake me when the b****’s album is multi-platinum. Until then, I won’t be impressed.

  64. matreiya August 3, 2011

    Katy, Rihanna, Gaga and Beyonce are all mediocre sides from the same coin. Who says she doesn’t use gimmicks and s**? Sure she doesn’t hump tanks and mic stands like the red headed goat, but she wears outfits like a drag queen, and she looks like a cupcake with ice cream cone bras. This is why the music industry is dying.

  65. THE ICONIC LACEFRONCE. August 3, 2011

    Oh puhlllesee. It’s not #1 on BB Hot 100..what HISTORY is this?

    Katy Perry=singles artist. Nothing more.

  66. TALENT + SOUL = KING BEY & QUEEN ADELE August 3, 2011

    @LTM & EVERYBODY!!!

    NO – MICHAEL JACKSON WAS THE FIRST ARTIST TO HAVE FIVE SONGS FROM ONE ALBUM REACH NUMBER ONE BETWEEN 1987 AND 1988

    “WHITNEY HOUSTON WAS THE FIRST FEMALE AND SECOND ARTIST TO HAVE FIVE SONGS REACH NUMBER ONE ALSO BETWEEN 1987 AND 1988…

    THEY WERE – “I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY”, “DIDN’T WE ALMOST HAVE IT ALL” ,”SO EMOTIONAL” ,”WHERE DO BROKEN HEARTS GO” , AND “LOVE WILL SAVE THE DAY”…WHICH MEANS KATY WILL BE THE SECOND FEMALE AND THIRD ARTIST!!!

    (according to wikipedia and billboard)

  67. Remey August 3, 2011

    This is why I hate when blog sites report from a biased perspective….

    Pop charts and Billboard 100 are two different things. Why blur the lines? Oh, simply to start Stan wars. The Rihanna gif was a nice touch too….and the sad thing is that some people are going to fall for it. I give Katy her props. Anything #1 is good, but can we please be relevant with the information please!

    Step into the Caroline….step into the light!

  68. lolatthiswebsite August 3, 2011

    IM SO PROUD OF HER! But yall this could have been easily predicted, her album is what it is A BUNCH OF HITS, the songwritting is clever and the theme is a total money maker, but Katy, TALENT like Bey,Adele, & Gaga NOT A CHANCE! (Rihanna FAILS, who mad?)

  69. YOOSONDALOOSE August 3, 2011

    WELL DONE KATY!

  70. Precy August 3, 2011

    Wow lets go katy she’s young nd breakin records dis era is tough.

  71. isabella! August 3, 2011

    she hasn’t tied the record for most #1s in an album, MJ still holds that record. for the person who said katy perry doesn’t use s** to sell, she does, but almost every female artist does, so it doesn’t really matter. good luck katy perry it will be interesting to read the comments if last friday night does go #1 on billboard 100

  72. Casual August 3, 2011

    Pop Songs is good, but I’m with the others here who pointed out the real record is topping the Hot 100. For the August 6 chart, TGIF is at #2 on the Hot 100. With Perry at #1 on the Pop Songs chart, there’s a real chance that she might unseat LMFAO on the August 13 Hot 100. I hope she can do it.

  73. ERIC August 3, 2011

    Let’s just hope she doesn’t get a 5th number one. It would be disgusting!
    While she’s hot and beautiful her music barely is right now. LFN is the most stupid song of the year and i stopped listening to the radio because of it.
    Anyway! CONGRATULATIONS!

  74. Paige August 3, 2011

    The music industry today is seriously failing if they can let Katy ” Tone deaf” Perry get that many no.1s. Her and Rihanna. Adele Gaga and Bey don’t need all those number ones. I think they would rather be remembered as artists with actually talent that sells albums. They are not selling albums, even though no one really is nowdays but how can you get all those hits and cannot sell. People don’t won’t her album they just want to spend 1.29 on her. And Katy Perry does sell s**. I mean look at her Cd cover, she’s naked. Are some people blind? She has whip cream coming from her breast.

  75. Paige August 3, 2011

    I stopped listening to the radio because of generic dance music. People like her, Rihanna, Pitbull, and LMFAO made me hate listening to the radio. I haven’t listened to the radio since New Years DAY . It’s a waste of time. If I like a song I will download it, not listen to it on the radio. That is way Adele is selling. She is making good music that’s not dance music. She isn’t make generic music about rude boys or dancing on table tops. I’m glad BEYonce released an R and B album and I’m glad Lady Gaga is releasing You and I as a single, not another generic dance pop song. I believe GAGa could still make music after this dance craze is over. She can relate to other genres. She can if people like Tony Bennett and Cher are working with her.

  76. Spaniard R&B Lover August 3, 2011

    Well, I like Katy Perry’s music, it’s fun. But… what’s the difference between her and Rihanna? I’ve heard both of them live, and are almost as terrible as a crying goat 😛

  77. JohnVidal August 3, 2011

    I was already afraid that the news were the 5th #1 on the hot100. If that happens…. shame on you all for not supporting real talent. I mean, those type of records are for people like Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson you know…

  78. Yellow Gorillah August 3, 2011

    She needs to DO HER THANG!

    Get those number #1s GURL No hate out here Congrats to her

    But NoShade I don’t want her to tie with MJ I’m just such a BIG MJ fan and for To tie with him it’s just =S Woooow The Music Industry has changed.

    Oh WELL!

  79. joojoo August 3, 2011

    is is hot 100 or pop charts………..im lost

    either way rihanna has 10 number 1s on hot 100 and the most number ons than any other artist on the pop charts with 8 soooo rihanna wins

    and katy will fade out cuz i cant see her doing anything other than what she is doing now…simple pop music……….gaga and rihanna will/can expand their music soooooo hae fun while it last katy

  80. Faye August 3, 2011

    Good for her however its sad that these talentless “singers” are breaking records and the actually talented singers like Beyonce and Christina are getting ignored, thank god I dont listen to any of that pop rubbish

  81. han August 7, 2011

    Someone save us from Katy Perry’s crappy music!! I just threw up reading this!
