only artist ever to spend 69 consecutive weeks in the top ten of the Hot 100
Back in 2001 Katy Perry (then Katy Hudson) was a relatively unknown Christian gospel singer. Now, following a lavish reinvention, Katy Perry stands as one of our most celebrated pop stars. Before fame, Katy used to write hits for many other artists, including stars like Kelly Clarkson. Gradually she was encouraged to pursue a pop career of her own, out of which emerged the boisterous, tongue-in-cheek pop princess that we all know and love today.
Katy was propelled her stardom during the summer of 2008 when her instant breakthrough hit ‘I Kissed A Girl’ soared to prominence and topped the charts in 25 countries. Since then Katy has enjoyed enviable success; among numerous other accolades she was nominated for nine Grammy Awards and was named by Billboard as 2012’s Woman of the Year. She remains the only artist ever to spend 69 consecutive weeks in the top ten of the Hot 100.
Her fourth studio album, Prism, is out in October 2013 and is set to be her finest achievement yet.
