Biography

Katy Perry became every hot-blooded male's fantasy come true when she cooed "I Kissed a Girl" (2008), her cheeky pop single that launched the singer-songwriter - who possessed a playful, sexy style that was slightly reminiscent of a Vargas Girl pin-up with a rocker's edge - into stardom. Perry's full-throated voice and feisty personality imbued her debut album, One of the Boys (2008), a witty, pop/rock album filled with sassy, confessional songs about erratic exes, wild and crazy road trips, and bouts of identity crisis. With her signature red lips and always-perfect ringlets, Perry exuded the perfect blend of sexy and innocent, rocking her own personal style punctuated by retro rompers, short and strapless dresses, killer heels, and neon accessories with a fruit motif. Aside from her music and distinct look, Perry's romantic relationships also made headlines. In January 2010, Perry caused quite a sensation with her engagement to British comedian Russell Brand less than four months after the couple started dating, a relationship that ended in divorce two years later. Also in 2010, she burned the airwaves again with the single "California Gurls," a pop-rock gem that again showcased Perry's infectious beats and confident lyrics. Although headlines about her personal life remained a constant throughout her career, Katy Perry's original, infectious talent made sure her music always remained more important.
