Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream Is Unstoppable


The indefatigable Katy Perry has been a fixture in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 since “California Gurls” was released over a year ago, and if “E.T.” can remain in the top ten for three more weeks (which, despite slipping this week from #2 to #3, is likely) her record-breaking reign will continue into the summer: June 6 will see the release of the fifth single off Teenage Dream, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” for which a video has been shot and artwork (the brace-face double-portrait above) has been released.

The plethora of fan-made Youtube videos for the song (covered with comments comparing it quite favorably to Rebecca Black‘s similarly-themed song) have racked up over three million views since August 2010, and the song’s brief sax solo is sonically suited to this summer. The song will probably not be the monster hit that “California Gurls” was, but it will certainly keep the Teenage Dream train rolling into the summer.
