Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream' sets new record

Katy Perry is experiencing the teenage dream.

Her third studio album – you guessed it - “Teenage Dream" is the first album in Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs chart’s 15 years to generate four No. 1 singles.

“Last Friday Night” is her latest tune to make the cut, joining “California Gurls,” “Firework” and the album’s title track, “Teenage Dream,” according to Billboard.com.

Perry could have had five singles on chart if it weren’t for Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” which nabbed the No. 1 spot from “E.T.” The track with Kanye West sat at No. 2 for four weeks.

Perry took home three moonmen statues at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

    That woman dresses like a 13 year old with an unlimited budget. She always looks so stupid. It's a real waste for someone so beautiful.

    @haha, learn some punctuation besides your version of elipses. The only people worse than those who use no punctuation are those who end every sentence with elipses. Or, in your case, sorta elipses.

    Im confused, didnt Billboard report last week that she tied Michael Jackson with five #1 singles from an album. Why does this say ET didnt make #1.

      Wait im dumb, the article says four #1 singles on the Adult Pop Songs Chart, not the HOT 100 Chart, my mistake!!

      They quoted adult chart instead of hot 100 where all 5 singles did
      hit #1 posted that would have been a more positive entry then ssying she just missed the record. Hot 100 is the most regarded chart by the industry. Is this blog really from CNN?

    Katy beat the record on the only chart that matters: Hot 100 becoming the 1st female artist with 5 #1s from same album tying Michael Jackson's Bad! That probably would have been a more positive blog 2 post then yours.

      And I thought I was the only one that read that. And that was a week or so ago. Someone isn't paying attention.

    I thought Adele's song was called, "Rolling in the Butter".

    anyone who thinks her lyrics are profound is in desparate need of electroshock therapy and heavy meds.

    Congrats to Ms. Perry. At least she's not pretentious about her trashy pop music like Lady Gaga.

      I meant that she doesn't think her songs are like the greatest in the world. Gaga recently said something along the lines of "My lyrics are the most profound out of any living artist today" and any artist that says stuff like that deserves to be shunned imo.

      "I meant that she doesn't think her songs are like the greatest in the world"

      That's cool, she realizes her music sucks as much as the rest of us do.

      Boy, do I wish your comment was accurate... the sad truth is that a lot of sheep enjoy Katy Perry and Lady Gaga... thinking they're some of the top talents in the industry... that may be the case these days but that's not saying much at all.
