Katy Perry sure has a lot to be proud of in 2012!

Not only has the singer had her hottest year in music since her debut, she was crowned ‘Hottest Woman‘ by Men’s Health Magazine and was recently named the victor of the most played artist on the radio last year!

When songs and artists from the past year come to mind, it’s pretty safe to assume that most people would mention Adele, ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen, or Gotye‘s smash ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ as the most popular of 2012, but alas, Perry has proved that she is more than just a pretty face: she has staying power.

According to the Nielsen Company’s 2012 Music Industry report though, Gotye’s hit was the most played song on the radio, he just didn’t have another track to put him in the running for “artist.” Still a great accomplishment for him nonetheless.

Here’s how the Top 10 most played artists stacked up:

1. Katy Perry
2. Adele
3. Kelly Clarkson
4. Taylor Swift
5. Rihanna
6. Pink
7. Bruno Mars
8. Flo Rida
9. Kenny Chesney
10. Nicki Minaj

A huge congratulations to Miss Katy Perry! We know she has a ton in store for us for 2013!
