On Thursday, Billboard released their latest Hot 100 chart and Katy Perry has a reason to celebrate--she is number one for a second week with "Dark Horse." Some people thought Perry was losing the plot when she didn't chart well with "Unconditionally," a song many thought was the best on the album.
There is more good news for the new Queen of Pop. Her "Prism World Tour" is selling so well that Ticketmaster keeps adding dates. This is quite in contrast to Lady Gaga, whose tour is selling so poorly that some dates may have to be cancelled.
Last year, Lady Gaga tried to take the spotlight away from Katy Perry by declaring a "pop emergency" and releasing her poorly received song "Applause" just two days after Perry released "Roar." Perry's song went to number one, while "Applause" briefly hit the top five due to Gaga holding a contest and giving fans who bought several copies of the single special gifts. The moral of the lesson: True talent will speak for itself.
