Pop sensation Katy Perry shot to stardom in 2008 when she released her first hit single, "I Kissed a Girl"—and hasn't looked back since.

The successful singer and songwriter is the first female artist to have five No.1 hits top the Billboard Hot 100 list from a single album (Teenage Dream), according to IMDb. The only other artist to achieve this feat was Michael Jackson.

With a huge fanbase (she was the first person to reach 100 million followers on Twitter) and looks to kill, it's no wonder Perry is such a success.
