A true California girl, Katy Perry is an unforgettable head-turner whose catchy songs, unique style and explosive performances have won over audiences all over the world. Not since Britney Spears, has a pop princess made such an impact on the music scene.
The outspoken singer-songwriter began her career as a serious gospel artist, but it was the transition to mainstream music that shot Katy to fame, when her quirky album, One of the Boys became the 33rd best-selling album world-wide in 2008. Her sophomore album, Teenage Dream, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and has seen chart-topping success with the hits California Gurls, Teenage Dream and Firework.
Named by Billboard Magazine as one of the most important artists of the decade, there's nothing stopping Katy's star from shining as brightly as the glittery outfits she wears on stage. Whether she's opening for the Video Music Awards or hamming it up as a host for the Teen Choice Awards, Katy Perry always leaves the audience yearning for more.
