Today*s Star- Katy Perry

Katy Perry is one of the best selling music artists of all time. She has also come out with her own documentary movie, gone on numerous world tours, and even has her own perfume line. Her success is undeniable, especially since she made the Forbes list for “Top Earning Women in Music” 4 years in a row: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. She also performed at this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show and it was amazing! 

 

Katy has been making waves ever since she came onto the music scene. Her 2008 debut hit, “I kissed a Girl” gained massive attention- good and bad, but no doubt, thrust her into the pop world. it was only upward momentum for her from then on out. 

 

Katy had her breakthrough when there was a lackluster of female pop stars. The overly exposed pop “princesses” of the early 2000’s were waning in their appeal and relevancy to the music scene: Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Jessica Simpson. There was a void that needed to be filled and Katy came in as a new, fresh, and unique artist.

 

 People really latched on to her and it definitely helped that she had the catchy music to back it up. She has released four albums since her early music beginnings in 2001, and her latest album, Prism, is one of her most successful. She has released so many hit songs from it: Roar, Dark Horse, Birthday, and Unconditionally.
