News: Last Friday Night (TGIF) Is #1!
[Grinning from ear-to-ear — she's obviously very stoked!]
Singer Katy Perry has made history after shooting to the top of the US pop charts with the fifth single from her album Teenage Dream. The 26-year-old has become the first artist to have five number ones from the same album dominate the US Billboard Pop Songs Chart after her latest tune Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) hit the top spot. The other singles are Teenage Dream, California Gurls, Firework, and E.T. The record was previously held by Justin Timberlake, 30, and Lady Gaga, 25, for their albums FutureSex/LoveSounds and The Fame - which both had four number ones each. If the wife of British funnyman Russell Brand reaches the top of the older Hot 100 list later this week, she will match Michael Jackson's Bad album, which had five top-hitting songs in 1987.

We're putting the fifth #1 single from MJ's Bad, Dirty Diana, against KP's Last Friday Night — which once reigns supreme? Personally, I think Michael is a god among mortals and is on a whole other platform opposed to Katy, but the charts have spoken. Listen to both singles below and vote for the one you prefer:
