Here are the times when Perry roared the loudest this year. 

Twitter loves her

In February, the singer surpassed 50 million Twitter followers, giving her the most in the social-media company's history. Not too shabby. 

Shining on the Billboard cover

Shortly after her talked-about performance of "Birthday" at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, involving a zipline and a giant spinning cake, Perry appeared on the cover of Billboard with country singer and tour partner Kacey Musgraves

She's got more digital fans than, well, anyone

In June, Perry was honored by the Recording Industry Association of America as the highest-selling digital performer ever. 

500 million viewers can't be wrong

By the 2014 halfway point, the video for her hit "Dark Horse" had logged nearly 500 million YouTube views, becoming the most-watched video of the year thus far.

Dynamite in denim at the VMAs

After leading the way with seven nominations at the MTV Europe Music Awards, she turned heads on the VMA red carpet in August with her all-denim look. Yes, even her purse was denim. 

Are you ready for some Katy Perry?

Perry wrapped up her monumental 29th year with the news that she'll be performing at the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show. This came just days after her odd appearance on ESPN's College GameDay, where she put the moves on a lucky college QB.
