New album by the Rolling Stones
Katy was born on October 25, 1974, in California. Katy Perry's real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson. She adopted the stage name to avoid confusion with actress Kate Hudson.
Katy began her musical journey at the age of 9, singing in the church choir. At 15, she staged a protest and dropped out of high school. Two years later, she left home to pursue her music career without any interference. At the age of 16, under her real name, she released a Christian rock album.
In the fall of 2006, an unknown girl from Santa Barbara began recording her first album, "One of the Boys," which, two years later, catapulted her to incredible success.
Since then, the daughter of strict pastors has become one of the leading stars in pop music, befriended Rihanna, and earned millions.
