KATY Perry has matched Michael Jackson's record of having five number one hit singles from the same album on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The brunette beauty'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', 'Teenage Dream', 'Firework' and 'E.T.', which has left the singer feeling "proud".

The 26-year-old star took to her twitter account to announce the news earlier today (17.08.11), tweeting: "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)"

Katy then praised her fans for helping her become the first woman to achieve the feat.

She wrote: "& 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)"

The exploit was last achieved by Michael - who died in 2009, aged 50 - when his 10-track album 'Bad' featured five number one singles, 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You', 'Bad', 'The Way You Make Me Feel', 'Man in the Mirror' and 'Dirty Diana', between 1987 and 1988 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
