Bio / Info
Katy Perry is best known as a pop singer with her music sprinkled liberally throughout the film soundtracks released starting in the year 2008. Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson in Santa Barbara, California, Perry decided to change her last name to avoid any confusion with the actress Kate Hudson. Rejected several times for independent recording contracts before landing a deal with her debut "One of the Boys" album, Perry has been a collaborator on songwriting for other performers such as Kelly Clarkson. She is set to have a brief cameo in the movie Get Him to the Greek as well as being attached to the 2011 proposed film, Timeless. Often remembered for her on stage antics involving inflated pieces of fruit and wacky stage costumes, Perry continues to heat up Hollywood despite being attached to it by musical associations and personal friendships with several movie stars, including her 2009 purported boyfriend, Russell Brand.
