Katy Perry is one of the most popular music artists in the country. She is known for her fun songs, quirkiness and unique voice. At 31 years of age, she has managed to have a lot of success in her career, even though she struggled when first attempting to get people to listen to her music.
Her love for music started when she was younger. As the daughter of religious parents, Katy would often sing songs at church. Most people do not know that she released a gospel album back in 2001. Unfortunately, it was not the success she had hoped for, but she would reach stardom only a few years later after making a few changes to her music.
Instead of sticking with the Gospel approach, Katy Perry decided to change her style of music and express herself a bit more. She signed with a new label and came out with the extremely controversial yet successful song, I Kissed a Girl. The song was catchy and fun, but definitely had some people criticizing the lyrics. Even so, it was the start of success for this talented and beautiful singer.
Ever since the release of that song back in 2008, Katy has since released tons of hits. Some of her best songs include California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Roar and Dark Horse. She has released songs with several other great musicians, including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West and Timbaland.
While Katy has been very successful in the music industry, she has had quite the struggle with her personal relationships. Although she married Russell Brand in 2010, her relationship with the actor and comedian did not last. Unfortunately, he filed for divorce in 2012 while Katy was on tour. It was a heartbreaking experience for her, but she has since dated several other celebrities, including John Mayer and Orlando Bloom.
Katy is known to have a rivalry with another popular musician, Taylor Swift. It is believed one of the reasons for the bad blood between the two is the fact that they both dated John Mayer. Some people even believe that Bad Blood by Taylor Swift was written specifically with Katy in mind.
Regardless of any personal problems Katy may have had in the past with significant others and friends who are now considered enemies, she is still an extremely talented musician who adores her fans and puts on quite the show at each concert.
