Katy Perry Interview with Barbara Walters: Reflections on a Fascinating Year

by at . Comments

No matter what you think of Katy Perry or her music, she had a year to remember, and she has the #1 singles to prove it. A lot of them. Five and counting, to be exact.

Unlike Pippa Middleton, who made Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 list for almost no reason, Perry reached rarefied music air in the last 12 months.

Katy's latest hit from her album Teenage Dream, "The One That Got Away," hits at #4 on the Billboard charts. The record's previous five singles all reached the #1 slot.

That and she's cute, quirky and fun. Put it all together and you've got someone worthy of sitting down for an interview at least. Here's Katy Perry's sit-down with Barbara:

Only she and Michael Jackson have achieved that many #1s from a single album, and only she, Janet Jackson and George Michael have six top five hits from one record.

Not a bad feat for a complete unknown just a few years back.
