Earlier this week, Katy Perry notched her 9th career chart-topper. After a slight misstep with “Unconditionally,” the 29-year-old bounced back with “Dark Horse.” To be fair, “Unconditionally” did peak at No. 14 which is respectable and a number most artists would die for. Truthfully, I’m surprised the track didn’t fare better considering its gorgeous visual. Meanwhile, “Dark Horse” still doesn’t have an official video but managed to reach pole position on the Billboard Hot 100. Go figure.

Perry is now tied at 10th place with Elton John, the Bee Gees, Paul McCartney and Usher on the all-time list. Just ahead of her are Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder (10), Whitney Houston (11), Madonna and The Supremes (12), Michael Jackson and Rihanna (13), Mariah Carey (18) and The Beatles with a whopping 20 No. 1 hits.

I thought it was the perfect time to look back at her career and rank all her chart toppers. For me, “Teenage Dream” is by far her best. Like leaps and bounds. No matter what version, remix or cover by another artist, the track is a winner. I never thought, Perry could release a more irritating single than “E.T.,” but she has. While clearly millions have warmed up to “Roar,” I still find it utterly irritating even after all this time. Not surprisingly, it’s my least favorite track by Katy. Check out how all her other hits rank.

Pitbull Rides Katy Perry’s Dark Horse

From her Prism era, “Dark Horse” is my favorite single by far. It’s the darker more mature Katy Perry she promised while promoting her latest album. Whether this is an official remix or simply Pitbull having some fun in the studio in between his other collaborations, I love it.

As a few of you know, I have this inexplicable fascination with Mr. Worldwide. No matter how hard I try, I can’t help but get obsessed with all his catchy singles. Maybe it’s because I associate him with the city of Miami which I love, but whatever the reason, Pitbull is my supreme guilty pleasure. Listen to Pitbull give Perry’s “Dark Horse” his own flava below.

The 56th Grammy Awards Winners & Performances

The French duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, triumphed over Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Rihanna and countless others by taking home some of the night’s biggest awards. They snatched up Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album and the very prestigious Album of the Year. Not bad for a duo who never showed their faces or spoke a single word during the telecast.

Lorde also capped off a remarkable year by winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Given her impressive haul, one would think Best New Artist would’ve been a foregone conclusion. That didn’t happen. The Kiwi singer wasn’t even nominated in that category. Instead, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis snatch that coveted accolade.

Speaking of the Seattle-based rap duo, they gave the most memorable performance of the evening. They were joined by Mary Lambert and Madonna during a special rendition of “Same Love” that incorporated Madge’s classic tune, “Open Your Heart.” In the middle of the epic collaboration, Queen Latifah officiated 33 couples getting married. The newlyweds included all creeds, colors and sexualities. It was so moving, it made Keith Urban and other audience members cry. Props to the Grammys for taking a very public and very televised stand for marriage equality.

Other notable performances include Miranda Lambert teaming up with Billie Joe Armstrong, Sara Bareilles with Carole King, Katy Perry, Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Hunter Hayes and Taylor Swift. Even though we’ve all seen P!nk suspended in mid-air, twirling around in ropes before I enjoyed her medley of “Try” and “Just Give Me A Reason.” Beyonce and Jay-Z kicked off the marathon telecast with a sexy live performance of “Drunk In Love.” It was captivatingly simple. Check it out below along with other performances and the list of winners.

Mission accomplished. Who says the power of prayer doesn’t work? Clearly, God listened to a young Katy Perry and bestowed a healthy pair on the singer. They, along with a gorgeous Perry, are on display on the February 2014 issue of GQ magazine.

In addition to talking about her breasts, the 29-year-old singer dispels any rumors that she’s had plastic surgery. She also chats about losing her virginity at the age of 16 in a Volvo sedan (cue Volvo endorsement), extraterrestrials, and her recently announced Prismatic Concert Tour. Check out more pics snapped by Peggy Sirota below along with more quotes.

“I laid on my back one night and looked down at my feet, and I prayed to God. I said, God, will you please let me have boobs so big that I can’t see my feet when I’m lying down? God answered my prayers. I had no clue they would fall into my armpits eventually.”

Turns out the rumors are true. Beyonce and Jay-Z are performing at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. CBS confirmed their additions in a brand new promo clip. In the first hour alone, the show boasts an incredible lineup which includes Katy Perry, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, John Legend, Hunter Hayes and Mr. & Mrs. Carter. With the latter two now solidified, I wonder if those Madonna rumors are true as well.

Sunday night’s Grammys will mark Beyonce’s first televised performance since the launch of her self-titled fifth album last month. Beyoncé’s total currently stands at 1.5 million, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In other Bey-related news, the singer recently premiered a glitzy commercial for her latest fragrance, Rise. It’s lots of glamor shots of the “Irreplaceable” singer in a sea of gold dust and glitter. Ke$ha would be so jealous. Check it below.

That sound you might’ve heard earlier day was the collective gleeful purrs from KatyCats rejoicing Katy Perry announcing North American concert dates for her Prismatic World Tour. The 29-year-old entertainer will embark on a 4-month journey in the United States and Canada beginning on June 22 in Raliegh, North Carolina. Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves, Tegan & Sara and Becky G will open for her in different markets.

“THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” said Katy. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM. I’m so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey – I know you’ll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do.”

The show will feature a state-of-the-art stage, specifically designed for Perry, that allows her to get closer to her fans than ever before. Citi® cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, January 21 at 10:00 am local time through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. Katy is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity again to offer fans some of the very best seats in the house to benefit important charitable causes, available exclusively at www.ticketsforcharity.com. Additionally, $1 from each ticket sold for the North American leg of The Prismatic World Tour will be donated to UNICEF.

To launch her North American Tour, Katy asked fans on Instagram to tell her about their #PrismaticCity. Check out the video and concert dates below.

Nothing says true love like getting thrown off a mechanical bull with your loved one ;) For their sake, I hope John Mayer and Katy Perry stay together forever. It’d be painful for the dumpee to stumble upon their “Who You Love” visual during a moment of weakness. That’s the sucky thing about appearing on-screen with your real-life lover. When things go bad, accidentally looking back at happier times could open a floodgate of tears. I know I would.

Mayer and Perry dropped by ABC’s Good Morning America to premiere the visual for “Who You Love.” Just like the track itself, the video is simplistic but beautiful and heartfelt. Directed by Sophie Muller (Rihanna “Stay”), it shows couples including John and Katy riding a mechanical bull in slow-motion. For me, the most beautiful moments are when Mayer and Perry look into each other eyes and sing. Either they’re really in love or fantastic actors. I’m thinking the former. Kate Winslet and Daniel Day Lewis they are not. Check out the video below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

2013-most-played-music-videos-vevo

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.
