Who's the better pop star: Katy Perry or Taylor Swift?
Taylor is one of music's greatest crossover successes. She went from being a teenage country-pop star to full-blown pop icon in just a decade. She holds the record as the only artist to have three albums sell more than one million units in the first week of release in the U.S. Taylor is known for channeling her emotions about her personal and love life into catchy pop music. Hence, she's now one of the best-selling artists of all time.
Michael Jackson broke many records like being the only artist to score 5 #1 pop hits from the same album. "Bad" (1987) featured #1s "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," "Bad," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Man in the Mirror" and "Dirty Diana." Well Katy has tied the score with Michael. She is the only other artist to have 5 #1 pop hits from the same album. "Teenage Dream" (2010) features #1s "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)." Wow! And it's not like that's the only record she has. Katy has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
"I Kissed a Girl" is where it all started for Katy. Well, she was a Christian rock artist before she became a pop-rock star. This is her pop debut in so many ways, and she has clearly made even more hits since.
