Katy Perry Makes Billboard History, Scores Tie with Michael Jackson

Los Feliz resident Katy Perry has become the first female artist, and only the second musician in Billboard history, to produce five Hot 100 Number 1 singles off the same album. The first artist to score these numbers was the king of pop himself, from 1987′s “Bad.”

Perry’s hits came from her 2010 release “Teenage Dream,” and consist of the title track, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),”  “California Gurls,” “E.T.,” and “Firework.”

We’re listening to the songs right now, in case there’s something we missed the first 47 times around. Nope. Still pretty standard pop fare. However, the pure eye candy of the “California Gurls” video will likely stand the test of time.  Included after the jump; sound optional.
