Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), better known by her

stage name Katy Perry, is an American singer-songwriter and musician.

Perry rose to fame in 2007 with her internet hit "Ur So Gay", and later

scored in 2008 her breakthrough single "I Kissed a Girl".


She began with an on-and-off recording career, having been dropped three

times by record labels. After signing to Capitol Music Group in 2007,

she released her first mainstream album, One of the Boys. It contains

the worldwide hits "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot N Cold", both certified

three-time platinum in the United States. She is known for wearing

unconventional style of dress, often combining colors and vintage

fashion, as well as associating outfits with fruits.


Childhood and personal life


Katy Perry was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson on October 25, 1984 in

Santa Barbara, California, United States. The middle child of two

pastors, she has an older sister and younger brother. Her Evangelical

mother, Mary Hudson, grew up in Southern California, and had "a

tempestuous first marriage in Zimbabwe". Her father was a West Coast

scenester in the 1960s.


Baptized a born again Christian, Perry was incorporated to her parents'

ministry, and she started singing in their church from age nine to

sixteen. She grew up listening to gospel music and was not allowed to

listen what her mother called secular music. Perry attended Christian

schools and camps. As a child, Perry learned how to dance in a rec hall

in Santa Barbara. She was taught by seasoned dancers and began with

swing, Lindy Hop, and jitterbug. She took her GED after her freshman

year of high school and decided to leave schooling to pursue a career in

music. Perry initially started singing "because I was at that point in

my childhood where I was copycatting my sister and everything she did".

She was in a constant fight to capture the attention of her parents off

her sister's, who was at the time taking voice lessons. Her sister

practiced with cassette tapes, and Perry took the tapes herself when her

sister was not around. She rehearsed the songs and performed it to her

parents, who suggested she should take voice lessons. She grabbed the

opportunity and began taking lessons at age nine to sixteen. She

enrolled in at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, and

studied Italian opera for a little while.
