With over a four month span between number one singles, America watched in anticipation to see if pop artist Katy Perry’s efforts could possibly make her the new record holder of Billboard’s “Most Number 1 Hits From One Album”. The only other holder of the title in the chart’s 53-year reign was the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Some believed it impossible, saying that Perry had some large, sparkly shoes to fill…
This month, Katy Perry’s (still standing) number one hit “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” not only earned her Billboard’s record, but Teenage Dream has made pop history.
In light of the recent news, many of Jackson’s supporters are skeptical about the pop princess’s true stardom. What they don’t realize is that to many people (young and older generations alike), Katy Perry is now a household name.
With her California Dreams tour in the midst of all things extravogant and sugary sweet, Perry’s main goal is to dazzle audiences at each and every one of her whopping 122 tour dates. Much like Michael Jackson’s This Is It tour, Katy had stated just before California Dreams launched that she wanted it to be the largest, most spectacular set of shows that any of her cast and crew had ever done… And she’s certainly putting her own flair into it.
With nearly fifteen-foot tall spinning peppermints and a vast, colorful candy land, Katy Perry owns the stage in her own unique way. While some music enthusiasts and concert-hoppers find these elements distracting, it could be just the distraction we need.
Since Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, Katy has become especially popular. While she could never replace Jackson, she plays in the same elements of entertainment that he had when performing. With these two celebs, it’s always, “The bigger, the better”. In this day and age, it’s safe to say that Katy Perry definitely the ‘Queen of Pop’.
For those of you willing to brave the 3 hour drive, it just might prove worth your while. On her California Dreams tour, Katy Perry will be in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Conseco Fieldhouse on September 14. Tickets are available here.
