Katy Perry born: Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson ; October 25, is an American award-winning recording artist, businesswoman, philanthropist, and actress from Santa Barbara. She is also the first female artist to have 5 number one singles on the U. Billboard Hot from one album, Teenage Dream and the second artist to accomplish such a feat the first artist being Michael Jackson with his album Bad. She is also noted for her fashion, which is often humorous, bright in color, reminiscent of different decades, and has often included food designs. She grew up listening to gospel music and had limited exposure to what her mother called secular music. Katy attended Christian schools and camps.
If you're a pop star, it pays to have a gimmick, and between her Dream Whip shenanigans in "California Girls" and the special effects on offer in just-dropped video "Firework," Katy Perry's just happens to be exploding boobs. You can watch the new clip below, but Perry's not the first to set her girls on self-destruct see Lady Gaga at the MMVAs for further illustration. Still, in "Firework," she's lighting up her assets for a good-ish cause: cliched feelgoodery. Perry told People earlier this year that she thinks of the Teenage Dream ballad as an inspirational tune. And right on message, Perry's not the only person pyro-lactating in the clip. A variety of misfits and victims -- a girl at a pool party who fears she's not bikini-ready; a young cancer patient; a man attacked by muggers -- eventually find their inner "firework" only to join Perry in doing a choreographed sort of Care Bear stare in the streets of Budapest.
He's just trying to find her cross. Shape up! Skip navigation! Story from Pop Culture. A photo is worth a thousand words, but a photo of Orlando Bloom on vacation in Italy with Katy Perry, seems to be worth characters.
Our old friend, former Scientist Max Hart, is now her touring keyboardist, you see, and so our attendance at the show was just a demonstration of friendly solidarity. We love Max. We went to cheer for him, not to leer at Katy Perry.
