Katy Perry Bio
Brandishing a wink, a coo, and cleavage with the aplomb of an assassin, Katy Perry created a distinctly new millennial pop persona: a Disney princess as imagined by Madonna. Flirty and bodacious, Perry sometimes skirted with taboos — she sneered on her first single “Ur So Gay” (punch line: “and you don’t even like boys”), she gasped “I Kissed a Girl” and she liked it — and that willingness to be controversial certainly put her on the pop culture radar, but the reason she stayed there was her knack for blending classic pop conventions with new trends.
Perry’s success was so sudden in 2008 it seemed as if she was an overnight success when the opposite was true. The daughter of Pentecostal pastors, she was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Raised by born-again parents, Katy was initially attracted to gospel music, sometimes sneaking pop music in to balance the inspirational tunes, but when she first started singing it was in the church.
She finally saw a song called “Simple” released on the soundtrack to 2005’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but her next big break arrived in 2007, when Jason Flom signed her to Capitol. Once again, Perry headed into the studio to create a would-be blockbuster — Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Butch Walker all returned, with Dave Stewart, Greg Wells, and S*A*M* & Sluggo also showing up — but this time everything fell into place for the singer. First came the deliberately controversial “Ur So Gay,” released as a video and digital single, and it gained enough attention that by spring of 2008, Madonna was calling it her current “favorite song.” By that point, Katy’s first real single was scheduled for release: “I Kissed a Girl.” Also vaguely scandalous, “I Kissed a Girl” became a smash and headed all the way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Her debut, One of the Boys, followed in June of 2008, and it was also a success, supported by the Top 10 hit “Hot N Cold,” along with “Thinking of You” and “Waking Up in Vegas.” One of the Boys was a big enough hit that the shelved album Perry had recorded with the Matrix back in 2004 saw a release in January 2009, but it didn’t do much.
As the Teenage Dream juggernaut wrapped up, Katy Perry turned her attention to recording her third album. Appearing in October 2013, Prism signaled a more mature Katy Perry, something that was apparent from its motivating first single, “Roar.” Prism received a lift from its third single “Dark Horse,” which became her ninth number one (“Unconditionally” didn’t crack the Top 10), and it was followed by “Birthday” and “This Is How We Do,” both released as she supported the album with an international tour. The highlight of that tour was her appearance at the half-time show for 2014’s Super Bowl XLIX, where she performed with Missy Elliott and Lenny Kravitz.
Two years later, Perry made her comeback with another major sporting event: the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics. Her single “Rise” was honored as the official anthem for the games.
