Back in the 1980s, Michael Jackson scored five straight chart-toppers off one album. That feat remained unmatched for almost 25 years. To everyone’s surprise, Katy Perry matched his record this year when she also scored five No. 1s off her “Teenage Dream” album. Not content at tying Michael Jackson’s Billboard record, Katy Perry is pulling out all the stops so she can stand alone in the record books.

When Perry was attempting to match MJ’s record, she added a completely unnecessary rap from Missy Elliott to “T.G.I.F. (Friday Night)” to attract more sales and radio airplay. The stunt yielded results and secured her fifth chart topper. To secure an unprecedented six straight #1 single, she’s employing a tactic Lady Gaga used to sell more than one million records of “Born This Way” during it’s first week of sales.

Last week, I shared with you Mattel’s Nicki Minaj Barbie doll being auctioned off to raise funds for Project Angel Food. Turns out, there’s also another celebrity-inspired doll on CharityBuzz.com you can bid on. Just like Minaj, this singer has a propensity to don colorful wigs. So much so, this singer is the face of GHD Wig’s holiday ad campaign.

Just like Nicki’s version, this celeb doll is meticulously made with the greatest attention to detail made. The stunning cupcake dress is made with 70 hand-painted mini-cupcakes with a glittered bodice. The fishnet stockings are even adorned with Swarovski crystals. Bidding has started at $1,000 and has the same $15,000 estimated value as Minaj’s. See which singer is the latest to receive a Barbie Doll treatment.

Katy Perry Debuts A Shorter ‘Do

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Sometimes, we get so used to a stars look that when they change it up, it totally makes us give them a double take. This is the case for one celebrity’s newest look. Barbara Walters’ most fascinating pop star, Katy Perry just debuted another new ‘do this weekend. If you remember, Katy when from dark brown, to ginger godess, to pink princess. Now, the singer has done yet another drastic change.

Last night at the Change Begins Within benefit gala in LA, Katy showed off her new blonde locks with hints of the pink still remaining giving her a dusty, strawberry blonde look. However, the color isn’t the only change. She chopped off a lot of length leaving her with a chin-length bob that is TO DIE FOR. I’m in love with the new look. Check it out below.

Check Out The 2012 Grammy Nods

In: Music, Tyrell

Last night, the Grammy’s held their Nominations Concert Live!! filled with performances from some of the year’s hottest acts. Among the showstopping numbers, the nominees were announced for the upcoming show taking place on February 12.

This year vying for the coveted Album of the Year are those pictured above: Adele, The Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Rihanna. Am I crazy? Why isn’t Katy Perry on the list? Remember how she is breaking all kinds of records with Teenage Dream? (Thanks to reader Mitchell for informing me that it was nominated last year and lost.) Regardless, the nods in this category are pretty solid, but I think that Adele will take the trophy home in my opinion.

Another artist notably snubbed in all categories is Beyoncé who’s 4 didn’t even make the grade. However, her album version of Party is nominated and her I Am… World Tour received a nod for Best Long Form Music Video. Check out all the nominees in a list below.

She’s making her list, she’s checking it twice… Another year has gone by and the time has come for Barbara Walters to reveal the list of The 10 Most Fascinating People Of 2011, and of course THE number one most fascinating person. Of course, we start off with just a little tease, with the full list and number one most fascinating person not being revealed until December 14th during her televised special on ABC.

The network has released a handful of the names that have made the list, which will air the 19th season of the annual special later this month.

That list also includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and any other pop star. According to the latest rumor mill, those ladies won’t be filling up their dance cards anytime soon. For the 54th annual Grammy Awards, the academy is reportedly switching things up and blocking top pop stars from entering the Dance category. For the past several years, female pop stars have dominated the category with the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga winning Best Dance Recording Grammys in 2011 and 2010 respectively for “Only Girl (In The World)” and “Poker Face” respectively.

Though no official announcement has been made, several Academy members have confirmed the new policy when a supposed leaked list of nominees surfaced. On that rumored list, none of today’s pop stars were included. The reason behind the Academy’s policy change is to make way for true electronica and dance artists. This way, musical acts like Benny Benassi, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Skrillex and similar musicians have a better chance of being honored and walking away with a golden Gramophone.

How Katy Perry didn’t win “Artist of the Year” at the recent American Music Awards is beyond me? The fact Taylor Swift beat her out just proves how much of a joke the AMAs have become over the years. The woman had a stellar year without a doubt. As each day goes by, Perry is racking up accolades not seen in years. She was the first artist to equal Michael Jackson’s feat of achieving five straight chart toppers from the same album. He did it with “Bad” and she with “Teenage Dream“.

Now, Katy has another achievement to brag about. The “Firework” singer joins a short and prestigious list of artists who’ve landed six Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hits from one album. Throughout the chart’s 53-year history, only five artists have done this. Two of them even achieved the feat twice, bringing the total of albums to a relatively small seven. With Perry’s “The One That Got Away” breaking into the Top 10, “Teenage Dream” now joins this illustrious group. She’s the first artist since 1993 to pull this impressive trick off and only the second female to do so. Check out who else made the list.

Katy Perry has had quite the year, there is no doubt about that. She tied Michael Jackson for most #1’s from a single album and now has another Top 10 hit with The One That Got Away under her belt tying the likes of Janet Jackson and George Michael. Now, Katy could be joining another legend if someone has their way.

Harvey Weinstein, who is responsible for the new film My Week With Marilyn, thinks that it is going to do so well in theaters that it will spawn off a Broadway musical. Who has he tapped to play Marilyn? None other than Katy herself. Here is what he told E! Online:

“If the movie works, I would try to make it a musical and I would go to Katy first. I think she can play Marilyn on the Broadway stage… I think she would be amazing.”

Wow! To be honest, I don’t know if Katy Perry would have exactly been my first choice with all of the amazing and talented stage performers out there. I guess we’ll know more about her acting skills when she hosts SNL this coming December with musical guest Robyn. Katy has portrayed the icon recently in a German commercial for ProSieben. Check out the TV spot below.
