Katy Perry is a is an American singer-songwriter and actress. As Katy Hudson (her actual name) she had first released a self-titled gospel album in 2001, which failed to find an audience. She later recorded an album with production team The Matrix and completed the majority of a solo album from 2004–05, which to date hasn’t been released. After signing with Capitol Music Group in 2007, her fourth record label in seven years, she adopted the stage name Katy Perry and released her first Internet single “Ur So Gay” that November, which started to garner Perry public attention. She rose to fame with the release of her second single “I Kissed a Girl” in 2008, which went on to top international charts. Perry’s first mainstream studio album One of the Boys followed later that year and subsequently became the thirty-third-best selling album worldwide of 2008. It was accredited platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America, while “I Kissed a Girl” and her second single “Hot n Cold” both received multi-platinum certifications.
Her second studio album Teenage Dream was released in August 2010 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album included the Billboard chart-toppers “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, and “E.T.” and most recently “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”. The album produced five Hot 100 toppers. With “E.T.” at number one on the chart of May 12, 2011, Perry became the first artist in history to spend a whole year, 52 consecutive weeks, in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Perry was credited as a guest judge on the seventh series of British television show The X Factor, has released a fragrance called “Purr”, and voices Smurfette in the 2011 film. She married Russell Brand on October 23, 2010. She makes promotional appearances in Las Vegas when she’s touring or visiting, and has been spotted at the hottest clubs in town (usually with Russell Brand).
