About Katy Perry
Described as "fierce," "
Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson was born to two
It was at a sleepover as a child where Katy Perry would find her corruption in the form of a Queen record. At 15, Katy moved to Nashville and worked with some top professional songwriters, including Glen Ballard. Once Capitol Music caught wind of her voice in 2007, they offered her a contract. Down the long hard road to fame, outrageous Katy Perry concerts caught the attention of stars including Madonna, who was quoted saying that a song off Perry's 2007 EP was her favorite that year. Perry has cited Madonna as one of her major influences, along with Freddy Mercury.
Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour through North American Cities Perry was one of the biggest concert tours of the year. Prismatic World Tour will be, as its name implies, "colorful." With more than 40 cities on the itinerary, it's the pop diva's most ambitious tour to date. "Roar" Nominated for Song of the Year
Perry was up against Pink, Bruno Mars, Lorde, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the Song of the Year category, and Roar has also been nominated in the Best Pop Solo Performance category, not-so-coincidentally with Sara Bareilles' "Brave." Critics have drawn comparisons between the two songs, which have similar empowering messages...and melodies!
Perry was linked with two musicians from Christian rock bands: Justin York (brother of Taylor York of Paramore) of Tait, and Matt Thiessen of Relient K., late actor Johnny Lewis (Sons of Anarchy), and rapper Travie McCoy before marrying actor and comedian Russell Brand in 2010. Since her divorce in 2012, she's dated John Mayer.
Katy Perry: Philanthropist
Perry has been honored for her work and activism on behalf of LGBT causes, receiving the Trevor Hero Award in 2012. She's also leant her voice to raise money for children's health, animal rights, clean water projects and breast cancer awareness. In 2013 she was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
