It's easy to dismiss Katy Perry's Billboard chart achievement of 5 #1's from one album, tying Michael Jackson's 1987 Bad album.  The charts are so fragmented now that what Billboard is charting at #1 doesn't always jibe with what I think is at the top.
But the bigger picture is career.  Hits are big,  Perry has now dropped 2 albums with plenty of them.  She'll need to do it again for album #3.  If she can she'll be around  longer than her critics think.  Music critics don't take people like Perry seriously because she's a Pop singer, and most don't listen to Top 40 radio anymore.  But she can write catchy songs and they sound good on the radio, which is all that matters.
