Press release copied and pasted in this second installment of 'Popjustice Press Release Cut And Paste Monday':
I don't often send out blanket emails but its been a while since Virgin /Capital Records US have had such a huge artist. But with Katy Perry a new US superstar is born. If Lucille Ball had a secret love child with Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, it would look, sound, and behave like Katy. She's having an amazing start in the US…
Her single 'I Kissed A Girl' moves up to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Charts this week, selling a staggering 1,000,000 records to date, and is also the 1,000th No.1 song in the Billboard Hot 100's history.
The song is still climbing the US top 40 airplay chart to 5* (12*) this week!
Her album 'One Of The Girls' entered the Billboard 200 album chart at No. 9
It is also an immediate success in Australia/NZ, where the song has quickly hit No. 1 on the iTunes charts! So looking set for worldwide domination.
Her Myspace pageis the 3rd most visited Myspace site after Lil Wayne and Rhianna. She has had over 7.6 million plays on her MySpace profile page!
The queen of pop herself, Madonna, has been been bigging up her single on US radio. . Here's a link to an interview she did name checking Katy. She's also been heavily supported by Perez Hilton on his website.
1st Single — I Kissed A Girl out 1 September 2008
Album — One Of The Boys out 15 September 2008

This woman may well be unavoidable in the late summer months… ('Hot & Cold', which we featured as Song Of The Day at the start of April, continues to be amazing.)
