According to contactmusic.com, Perry's latest release Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) made history as it became her fifth single from platinum record Teenage Dream to reach the top spot following the success of California Gurls, Firework and E.T.
The feat was last achieved by late pop legend Michael Jackson when his 10-track album Bad featured five number one singles between 1987 and 1988 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
"What a way to wake up! SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song 'LAST FRIDAY NIGHT' is officially #1 & made HISTORY! (sic)" the 26-year-old posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The singer later praised her fans for helping her become the first woman to achieve the position.
"& u know, I couldn't have done it with out ya, really I owe u guys BIG... so take this moment to give yourself a high FIVE!!! #allbecauseofu (sic)” she further posted.
