Here's Katy Perry Profile :
Name: Katy Perry
Full Name: Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson
Place of Birth Date: October 25, 1984 (age 26)
Occupation: Singer, songwriter
Perry’s career took off in 2008 with her scandalous song “I Kissed a Girl” and the even more provocative music video that followed. Soon after, she went on to release her first album, One of the Boys, followed by the second album, Teenage Dream. Perry continued to experiment with risqué lyrics in Teenage Dream, with songs mentioning threesomes and the showcasing of male genitalia.
Aside from turning heads with her music, Perry has also drawn her fans’ attention to her public image. She attempted to make an appearance on Sesame Street by singing “Hot N’ Cold” with Elmo, but due to parental retaliation against the cleavage her dress displayed, the scene was cut. Perry was successful, however, in her appearance alongside Simon Cowell in The X Factor, a British version of American Idol. Perry has also made various appearances on TV shows such as The Young and the Restless and MTV Unplugged.
For those who know only of Perry’s recent accomplishments, it may come as a shock Perry discovered her talents through church. Perry was born to an extremely religious family and was raised to follow their lifestyle. She was banned from listening to the suggestive music of our culture and was instead limited to gospels. She sang for the church (where her father was a pastor) for eight years, and tried to launch her career by releasing a gospel album in 2001, but failed. Perry then decided to spread her wings a little by removing her religious heritage from her work and adding a little spice in its place. The result was obviously successful, and Perry went on to become the superstar she is today.
