Katy Perry is breaking records this year.

The singer’s new film, “The Smurfs,” opened at #2 at the Box Office and she is the most nominated artist this year with nine VMA nods, although she has not won an actual Moonman yet.

Perry is now close to becoming the first female artist to have five #1 hit singles from the same album on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Michael Jackson first accomplished this record with his album Bad.

The singer’s new hit “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” is quickly moving up the charts and now sits at #2.

Perry’s previous #1 songs from Teenage Dream are “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” and “E.T.”
