Early Life and career
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California, to Pentecostal pastors Mary Christine and Maurice Keith Hudson.
From ages three to 11, Perry often moved across the country as her parents set up churches before settling again in Santa Barbara. Growing up, she attended religious schools and camps, including Paradise Valley Christian School in Arizona and Santa Barbara Christian School in California during her elementary years.
Her family struggled financially, sometimes using food stamps and eating food from the food bank which also fed the congregation at Perry’s parents’ church.
Perry completed her General Educational Development (GED) requirements at age 15, during her first year of high school, and left Dos Pueblos High School to pursue a musical career.
She briefly had music lessons in facilities rented from the Music Academy of the West. Her singing caught the attention of rock artists Steve Thomas and Jennifer Knapp from Nashville, Tennessee, who brought her there to improve her writing skills.
In Nashville, she started recording demos and learned how to write songs and play guitar. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and recorded her debut album, a contemporary Christian record titled Katy Hudson, which was released on March 6, 2001.
She also went on tour that year as part of Phil Joel’s Strangely Normal Tour and embarked on other performances of her own in the United States.
While Katy Hudson received positive reviews from critics, it was commercially unsuccessful and sold an estimated 200 copies before the label ceased operations in December.
Transitioning from gospel music to secular music, Perry started writing songs with producer Glen Ballard, and moved to Los Angeles at age 17. In 2003, she briefly performed as Katheryn Perry to avoid confusion with actress Kate Hudson. She later adopted the stage name ‘Katy Perry’, using her mother’s maiden name.
Perry rose to fame in 2008 with her second album, One of the Boys, a pop rock record containing the controversial U.S number one song “I Kizzed a Girl” and “Hot n Cold”.
Three subsequent albums have topped the U.S. Billboard 200. The disco-influenced Teenage Dream (2010) spawned five chart-topping U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles–”California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, “E.T.”, and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” — a record tying her with Michael Jackson’s Bad.
Its follow-up record Prism (2013) was inspired by her divorce, and incorporates pop and dance along with themes of self-reflection, everyday life, and relationships.
With the music videos for its chart-topping songs “Roar” and “Dark Horse”, Perry became the first artist to have multiple videos reach one billion views on Vevo. 2017’s electropop Witness featured a political subtext and a theme of liberation. Her sixth studio album Smile followed in 2020.
