Turn the dial and chances are you will find a radio station or three playing a Katy Perry song, as the newly blond diva is a radio fave. In fact, she’s pretty much as favored as the late, great Michael Jackson. As it stands, Perry is “this close” to tying the King of Pop’s radio record of five No. 1  radio singles from the same album, which would make her the Queen of Pop, according to Popdust.

Jackson enjoyed five No.1′s from his 1987 release, ‘Bad.’ We know, we thought that the accolade would have come from his most definitive platter ‘Thriller.’ Perry has four No.1 singles from ‘Teenage Dream’ so far, and if her current single ‘Last Friday Night (TGIF)’ ascends to the top slot, she will tie Jackson and make radio history. Go Katy!

The previous No. 1 singles from the 2010-released ‘Teenage Dream’ are ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Teenage Dream,’ ‘Firework’ and ‘E.T.’ The album really has produced a parade of hits in the past year.

Currently, ‘Last Friday Night’ is lodged in the No.2 slot on the chart, so no doubt the radio promotion department at her label is burning the midnight oil trying to rack up more spins and push the song into No. 1 so Katy Perry can achieve history and become radio royalty. LMFAO are currently in Perry’s way. We think she can take ‘em out. Her fans should call their local radio stations and make requests to help get ‘Last Friday Night (TGIF)’ to the top where it belongs.
