Yes. Yes, she is. Let’s take a weeping break, all right?
This is how this works. See, Katy Perry has released five singles from her second album, Teenage Dream: “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night.” And every single one of those singles has reached the number one slot on Billboard’s pop charts. She’s the first lady who’s ever achieved that, and the only other person ever to get five number one singles off the same album? Michael Jackson. Bananas.
This really is crazy, right? Is Katy Perry really THAT popular? A quick Wikipedia check says that Lady Gaga‘s only had three number one singles altogether, which seems even more bizarre, and Justin Bieber hasn’t had any, at least in the U.S. I don’t know, maybe I’m just not understanding exactly how the Billboard charts work? Or perhaps the world really is going to hell in a handbasket. Those are the only ways I can figure that this girl is one of the most commercially successful singers ever.
