We see Katy Perry strip down a lot. She is not shy.

What we don't often see is a stripped-down performance by the pop singer, performing acoustically as she did Sunday night at the American Music Awards.

Katy was honored with a special honor at the ceremony (see full list of AMA winners) for having charted five straight singles at #1 off the same album.

She's the only woman ever to do that, and only the second performer overall. The other? None other than Michael Jackson. Pretty exclusive company.

While no one will ever compare KP to MJ in terms of talent, she does sing a catchy tune. Watch her perform "The One That Got Away" last night ...

Katy Perry had us thinking she had real musical talent for a second.

A video shot by a fan at one of her concerts showed Katy jamming away on the flute like a virtuoso ... or so we thought, until she took a breath at the wrong moment and gave away the fact that she is a flute-synching fraud! We want our money back!

Watch the "One That Got Away" singer miss a cute and mess up the whole act ...

But while it looked like the joke was on Katy, it may actually be on us. Perry mentioned the incident to her 12 million-plus followers on Twitter, saying:

"P.S. FAIL to all of you who fell for my scripted flute joke #Iminonthejokebooya"

She also has five straight #1 hits and we don't. THG fail.

Will "The One That Got Away" be Katy Perry's sixth straight #1 hit?

She hopes so, and thinks today's video release date might be good luck.

On Ellen DeGeneres' show this morning, Katy noted that if you took six #1's and lined them up, you'd get 11/11/11. We totally didn't think of that earlier.

Check out the video, which debuted during her interview with Ellen, and see if you think it's up there with some of her other recent, instant pop hits:

Not bad, huh? She sure does love dressing up in elaborate costumes.

On a really cool note, Perry announced that she will be holding a special free concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles for all her fans on November 23! Free!

Switching gears, she says she wants to start "poppin' kids left and right" before long.

"As long as it doesn't hurt the first time. I'll keep popping them out," Katy claims.

So basically, she and Russell are only gonna have one kid, but it'll be cute!

Katy Perry was one of the big MTV VMA winners last night - perhaps the biggest winner of all, taking home Video of the Year honors for "Firework."

On the one hand, it seems a dubious call by MTV, given the talent she was competing against. On the flip side, the show are all arbitrary anyway.

Also, perhaps it's not ridiculous to give a big award to an artist who achieved a feat only Michael Jackson had before with five #1 hits on one album.

What do you think? Was "Firework" Video of the Year worthy? Vote:

Did Katy Perry's "Firework" deserve to win at the VMAs?

Rocker Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame recently spoke out about the music of her contemporary namesake Katy Perry. In less than flattering terms.

Linda, who has also written songs for Pink, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and other young stars, was asked in an interview to pick the worst artist today.

Katy Perry topped her list.

Linda told music journalist Heath Daniels that Katy Perry only churns out tracks she compares to junk food, and is emblematic of the industry today.

"It's just different, it's different," Linda says. "You listen to the Adele record, and I'm not a huge fan of Adele, it's a solid record. Solid, and it's selling."

"So that means people are still buying records. It's the crap, like who wants a f--king Katy Perry record? I'm sorry, you know? You're gonna get the two hits that are good, but the rest of the album is gonna be crap."

So much for "I Kissed a Girl" making her a one-hit wonder.

Katy Perry and Michael Jackson may not have much in common, but they're the only artists in music history to post five #1 hits from the same album.

Perry is therefore, obviously, the first woman ever to achieve the feat thanks to hits from Teenage Dream. "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" is now the fifth.

  • Hot Smurfette
  • The Late King of Pop

Interestingly, Michael's iconic album Thriller didn't achieve the feat, but its follow-up Bad, with hits like "Man in the Mirror" and "Smooth Criminal," did.

Jackson spent a total of seven weeks at the top with his Bad songs, while Perry has occupied the top spot now for a record cumulative 18 weeks.

Rebecca Black has a long way to go until she's Taylor Swift. This is true for almost all artists, of course.

But the controversial 13-year old singer took a step in Taylor's direction last night by claiming the Choice Web Star honor at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Swift? She only went home with multiple surfboard, including the most prestigious one of them all: Ultimate Choice.

Which of these musicians looked best on the red carpet, though? That's up readers to decide in the following Fashion Face-Off.

Katy Perry cannot be stopped.

The singer's first movie role (voiceover only, granted) helped The Smurfs earn a tie for first place at the box office this weekend, while the singer has also made music history on the Billboard chart:

"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" is Katy's fifth single off "Teenage Dream" to hit number-one on Billboard's Pop Song chart, making her the only artist in the chart's nearly 20-year history to accomplish such a feat.

All this, and she's a 10 in bed!
