Katy Perry, born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson ( October 25, 1984), is a controversial American singer and in the late time actress too. She was born in Santa Barbara, California.
The song “I Kissed A Girl” brought fame upon this conservatively raised singer. After she released her album “Teenage Dream”, she has become the first woman to have five songs from an album go to No.1. in music history.
As she was born in a Christian family, her parents that are two pastors, were very strict when it comes to a question about with what kind of music will she listen or not. They told her their she can sing in local restaurants or in the church. Her mother used to ban her from listening to what they call “secular music” wich is any rock or popular music.
Perry was apt in gospel music. One day during a slumber party she heard the voice of Freddie Mercury. That voice opened her vibes to another possible side of music. Later this side of her would come out as her main music style. When she was 15 years old she moved to Nashville to work closely with songwriters.
She released her debut album in 2001, under the Red Hill Records label. She used her name for the title of the album, “Katy Hudson”. The album contained Christian songs. In 2004 she became the vocalist of The Matrix production team and recorded some songs with Ballard. After that she was “the big thing” in the world. By being in the club, Katy was introduced to a number of renowned musicians.
On her MySpace account, she offered free download of the song “Ur So Gay”. It became a hit, but when she released “I Kissed a Girl”, it gave her a real big music success worldvide. She even made her perfume and with more film role opportunities heading her way, she has made her dream come true. These are the rest of the albums that she made: One of the Boys, Katy Hudson, Teenage Dream, Prism, Teenage Dream:The Complete Confection and MTV Unplugged.
