It has been five years since pop diva Katy Perry released her third album, Teenage Dream, which cemented her superstar status and supplied us with the best songs of the summer (or ever?).

The eclectic album takes us to Candyland with Snoop Dogg, inspires us to be as spectacular as Perry with Firework and reminds us why we T.G.I.F.

Teenage Dream sold nearly 6 million albums worldwide and is the second album in history (following Michael Jackson‘s Bad) to have five No. 1 hits: the titular “Teenage Dream,” plus “California Gurls,” “E.T.,” “Last Friday Night” and “Firework.” Perry, 30, is the only woman in music history to accomplish this feat. (Mariah Carey’s debut album had four No. 1s.)

Happy fifth anniversary, Teenage Dream – you’re all grown up.
