Katy Perry has thanked her fans for making her the first female artist to achieve five US number one singles from one album.

The singer, who tops the Billboard Hot 100 this week with 'Last Friday Night', said that she was "proud" of the milestone, which equals Michael Jackson's record of five chart-topping songs from his 1987 album Bad.

Perry tweeted: "What a way to wake up! SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song 'LAST FRIDAY NIGHT' is officially #1 & made HISTORY! (sic)

"& u know, I couldn't have done it with out ya, really I owe u guys BIG... so take this moment to give yourself a high FIVE!!!"

The song sat at number two on the chart for four weeks but was helped to the top after a remix featuring Missy Elliot was released last week.

Perry's fifth number one comes after being the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to spend over a year in the Top 10.
