A popular singer whose real name is Katheryn Hudson, grew up listening to what type of music?
Pop music singing sensation Katy Perry has become known for her over-the-top fashions, quirky stage props and catchy songs like “I Kissed a Girl”.
Katy Perry was born October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California. After having three record deals fall apart, she signed with Capitol in 2007. Later that year, she released her first single, “Ur So Gay.” Still, her career did not fully take off until the release of her next single, “I Kissed a Girl”. Her album Teenage Dreams was released in August 2010.
With her mother, Perry made several trips to Nashville to record a gospel album, Katy Hudson, which was released in 2001. “It reached literally maybe 100 people, and then the label went bankrupt,” Perry explained to Entertainment Weekly.
