The first to accomplish this feat? The late King of Pop.
Although Perry ties with Michael Jackson by having the most singles off the same album to hit No. 1, the 26-year-old is the first woman and the only living artist to achieve the record.

Katy Perry and Russell Brand still have weeks to go before celebrating their first wedding anniversary, but as E! Online notes, recent rumors suggested that the two may not make it that far and are considering a trial separation.
Not quite, Perry tweeted. "Just cause we don't flaunt our relationship doesn't mean there's something wrong w/it," the 26-year-old singer wrote. "Privacy is our luxury. #tabloidsrtrash #gossipisgross."
Of course, it's just one of many rumors that the two are struggling to keep their marriage together after tying the knot last October. Earlier in the year arrived allegations that Perry was seeking a marriage counselor, and after that came gossip that she had cheated on Brand before their wedding, claims that had Perry reportedly seek legal action.
For his part, Russell Brand is backing up the wife. "You tell em Mrs Brand!" the comedian and actor tweeted. "In Britain we're currently dismantling the scum media so I'm not tuned in to their brain-farting."
