The One That Didn't Get Away: Katy Perry Ties Janet Jackson & George Michael Musical Record

It has indeed been a very good year for Pop Tart Katy Perry! Not only has she recently celebrated her 1st anniversary with hubby Russell Brand, she's also tied a Billboard record shared by two of the biggest superstars in the music industry, Janet Jackson and George Michael.

Perry's latest smash hit song  "The One That Got Away" has become the 6th Top 5 Billboard hit from her multimillion copy selling CD Teenage Dream, which ties the previous record. George Michael accomplished the feat in 1987-1989 with hits from his top selling Faith album, while JJ did so in 1989-1991, with a long succession of hits from her Grammy-winning Rhythm Nation 1814 album.

So, it's been over twenty years since an artist has achieved the rarefied status of Six Top 5 hits from one album, which is very impressive. With two more weeks left in the year, is it possible that Perry's "The One That Got Away" will hit Number One on the charts (it's currently sitting at Number Four), breaking another record? The song is currently available of .88 cents on iTunes, so it's a pretty good bet that it will reach Number One...
