Katy Perry

Katy Perry's full name is Katheryn Elizabeth but she's known as Katy Perry. Katy Perry was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara. Katy perry has become a pop music sensation known for her over-the-top fashion & catchy songs.

Katy Perry grew up in a very strict family. Her parents didn't let her listen to any music of any type when she was young. She started taking singing lessons at around the age of 9. This was her favourite thing to do since she loved music but wasn't allowed to listen to it at home. After a few months of taking these lessons she went against her parents by getting a nose piercing! She soon began her music career. One of her friends introduced her to the music of queens, which is still Katy's favourite group. At school she always hung out with the cool kids who rapped and sang. One of my most favourite song by her is called "Dark Horse" featuring Juice J.

She was only 17, she had been living in L.A for 5 years without any money and having to sell her clothes to make money. Her career did not fully take off until her single "I Kissed a Girl" released which became a big hit in the summer of 2008. In 2009 she engaged with a guy named "Russell Brand" and soon got married on October 23, 2010. There wedding was held in a temple as a Hindu ceremony. Which featured camels, elephants, horses, dancers, musicians, snake charmers and many more.

The single to "California Girls" quickly rose reaching #1 on Billboard Charts. With a signature perfume and film role opportunities heading her way, she may just make her dream come true.
