Katy Perry looks set to equal Michael Jackson's record of having five number one hit singles from the same album on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The 'Firework' singer - who has nine nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards - most recently took the top spot in the pop songs chart with single 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)' and the track looks likely to do the same in the Hot 100 listings, following on from the success of 'California Gurls', 'Teenage Dream', 'Firework' and 'E.T.' on her 'Teenage Dream' LP.

The feat was last achieved by the American singer, who passed away in 2009 aged 50, when his 1987 ten-track album 'Bad' - which had nine single releases, including 'Man in the Mirror', 'Dirty Diana' and 'Smooth Criminal' - managed to achieve five number one hits on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

Katy, 26, is rumoured to be considering pushing for a sixth single from her LP, with the upbeat 'Peacock' track touted as a possible future release.
