Katy Perry (originally Katy Hudson) is a incredibly successful modern pop star. She has had several popular and chart-topping albums which have also spawned countless popular singles.
Katy began her career as a Gospel singer under her birthname of Katy Hudson. After releasing an album under the name, she decided to change her stagename to "Katy Perry" to avoid confusion with the actress Kate Hudson.
Shredding most of her Gospel roots, Katy released her first album under her new name; One of the Boys. The album included the singles I Kissed a Girl, Hot and Cold, Waking Up in Vegas and Thinking of You - all of which attained substantial success commercially. Katy Perry quickly attracted fans with her care-free, catchy music and her archaic, kooky and sexualized image and fashion.
Katy's second album, Teenage Dream, fared just as well as her first boasting smash hit singles such as California Gurls (featuring Snoop Dogg), Teenage Dream, Firework, E.T. (featuring Kanye West), T.G.I.F. (Last Friday Night) and the non-album single Part of Me.
She has also ventured into acting in films such as The Smurfsand TV shows like How I Met Your Mother and a live-action appearance in The Simpsons. She also starred in her own concert film/documentary entitled Katy Perry: Part of Me.
In comics, Katy Perry is featured (alongside Lady Gaga and Rihanna) as students at St. Hadrians School in Grant Morrison's Batman, Inc.: Leviathan Strikes. A comic based on her career and rise to success entitled Fame: Katy Perry was published by Bluewater Comics.
