Katy Perry made history yesterday! Tying Michael Jackson’s record for #1 singles off of one album. Perry is only the second artist to do so…and obviously the 1st female! After the news broke she tweeted:
“What a way to wake up! SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song ‘LAST FRIDAY NIGHT’ is officially #1 & made HISTORY!
I am so proud of her as an artist and as a woman! Her first single didn’t exactly seem like it was setting her up for success, but she knew what she was doing. She is at the top now, beating out Gaga & Justin Timberlake who each had 4 #1 singles off their albums “Fame” and “FutureSex/LoveSounds”.
AND….Katy breaks another record this week with her extension on the Top 10 chart. This week is her 66th week of being on the Top 10! She is the first artist in 5 decades to do so! This is a woman that has set the bar for all female artists that follow. She is one that is NOT afraid to display her sexuality and be a woman…in front of the entire world. She totally deserves it!
