Katy Perry, born as Katy Hudson in 1984 in the month of October, used to be a Christian singer who decided to concentrate on pop and rock music combined, with her influences being: Lilly Allen, Alanis Morissette, and Avril Lavigne. It was just last year (2008) when Perry became prominent in the music scene.

Raised in California, in the town of Santa Barbara, Perry lived in a Christian household, given that her parents are both pastors. Even though Perry was prohibited to music aside from Christian songs, Freddie Mercury's and Alanis Morissette's hits caught her attention during a slumber party she attended with her friends.
Christian music, however, remained as her main focus. In fact, in 2001, Perry came up with her self-titled album: "Katy Hudson" composed of Christian tracks. Eventually, however, she decided to move away from that genre as well as her real surname in order for her to pursue a career in pop music.

As early as age 17, Perry began her collaboration with Glen Ballard, who was able to produce records and co-write songs for Alanis Morrisette's 1995 Jagged Little Pill, which was indeed a chart-topper. After a few years, Perry worked with the Matrix, a team of producers/songwriters that had a Grammy nomination, and have worked in partnership with well-known artists like Shakira, Korn, and many others.

There was a time when the Matrix planned to have their own album with Perry being one of the singers. Those plans were eventually stopped, but prior to their shelving, Perry was featured in one of Blender Magazine's 2004 issues, wherein Perry was given the title of: "The Next Big Thing!"
In 2007, Perry decided to sign a contract with Columbia Records. "UR So Gay" was her debut single which caught the attention of a moderate number of people, specifically because of the unique music video and "happy-go-lucky" lyrical content. In 2008, what made a breakthrough for Perry in the industry was her single entitled: "I Kissed A Girl", which claimed the Number One spot in the music charts in around 20 countries, therefore pushing Perry's accompanying album called: "One of the Boys" into America's Top Ten.

Katy Perry also joined the so called "Warped Tour" in the summer of 2008, together with Travis McCoy of the group Gym Class Heroes, who has her boyfriend. Perry's "Hot N Cold" also became a number one hit. She also wrote three songs all by herself, one of which was "Thinking of You", which was included in the Top 40. Katy Perry is considered as a pop icon, both for her one-of-a-kind music and bizarre, but appealing sense of fashion.
