Katy Perry makes Billboard chart history with fifth No. 1
By Jen Blushi
Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with!
Her latest single, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” has become her fifth No. 1 song off her “Teenage Dream” album.

The song hit the top position on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart Monday, making her the only artist in the chart’s nearly 19-year history to accomplish such a feat. Her singles also make up five out of the six titles with the highest-ever weekly spin totals.

Perry has had a monumental year. In addition to her five No. 1 songs, she is also the only artist in history to be VMA-nominated for four separate videos in a single year, and her movie debut in “The Smurfs” just barely missed the top of the box office.

If “Last Friday Night” reaches No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, she will join the likes of Michael Jackson, who had five No. 1 songs on the Hot 100 from his album “Bad.”
Seriously, can she be stopped?
