This is such an amazing time to be a Kelly fan. She is absolutely destroying the charts and I am loving it! #1 Hot AC and coming for #1 on Pop radio and #1 overall radio once Adele decides to have herself a damn seat hahaha.
"Katy Perry's biggest charm of all though is the fact that she just wants to be a very very good popstar. There's no holier-than-thou message, off-kilter experimentalism or self-indulgence, just hit after hit after future hit. And it's for this very reason that Katy Perry is fast becoming the world's very best popstar right now." - Digital Spy Twitter | Last.FM | Tumblr | Soap Opera Discussion Thread
