Short bio: 

Katy Perry was born in Santa Barbara and actually started her career in Christian Music. She used her birth name "Katy Hudson" and recorded a debut Christian Contemporary album as a teen in 2001. When her label went out of business, "Hudson" says she started writing love songs and fun songs.. just hoping one day someone would hear what she had to sing. In 2007 She signed with Capitol records, changed her name to KATY PERRY. That's when she took the pop music world by storm with songs like "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot n Cold." Perry's third record, Teenage Dream (2010), spawned the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "Firework", "E.T." and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)". It became the first album recorded by a female artist in history to produce five number-one hits, and the second album overall behind Michael Jackson's Bad (1987). Perry embarked on the California Dreams Tour following its release. In 2012, it was reissued as Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection and contained the number-one single "Part of Me".

Hey Katy,
Boonah State School posted a video on vimeo but we didn't know that it had to go on the judging process. We are really hoping that you can see it via the link: http://vimeo.com/106876791. Can you please see how unique and inspirational our school is?
Lauren
P.s. We love you

Hey katy,
I actually am older, 23 if I should say. I'm a leader in a church on the east coast, not that it matters and this is really going out of my way to leave a comment here. I know you care a lot about people which is inspiring. I like your music and I occasionally listen. I guess all I wanted to say was our lord, Jesus Christ, really speaks to me when I listen to your music. Not because of the words you sing but you as a person. Of course you know he adores you, I know deep down you know him just like I do. It's hard to tell where your walk is with him because youre a celebrity and your personal life is not public. And obviously I do not know you. And you do not know me. Hell I don't even know if you see these comments. Just wanted to say I know there's more to you than your lyrics and dating, specifically just knowing our first love. I hope with all of my heart that you are crazy enough to live for him still to this day. And that you just like me are silly enough to believe in the best fairy tale there is. I'm sorry if you don't.
With love,
Rachel stein.

Hi Katy My 3 year old niece is nuts about you and I would do anything for her to able to meet you. Her mum has to tell her that "Katy Perry has to go to work now" just so they can get out of the house and turn your music off. First thing every morning she does is gets a dance outfit on and puts 'Roar' on and dances in her room. I made her an outfit for Christmas that was just like yours and it has tipped her over the edge with becoming slightly obsessed ha ha. If she was able to meet you when you come to Australia Brisbane that would mean more than you realise. I could send you a video of her screaming roar ? My email is shelleyannesmith@yahoo.com.au Thanks Matey

Really????? Using innocent animals at super bowl??? What are you thinking?!?
It's disgusting to say the least. have YOU ever thought that these poor animals shall be terrified with all that noise??! Probably not because you are only thing about numbers and that would be CASH and Popularity....
You are lame to do such a selfish act just for a show.
I used to like you - BUT NO MORE!

Katy,

You surely could have had a great career singing for Christ. And the eternal life you could have had would have been so much better than anything Satan has promised you or even given to you in this world. But I do want to tell you, you can come back. Satan has lied to you. Eternal suffering is your future. You will not have a kingdom to rule in hell. Even now I will pray for you, before I finish this message. Jesus wants you Katy. His love is so much more amazing than your wicked life is now.

Hi Katy,
I suspect this note will be different to the regular ones you receive. I watched your movie last night and it inspired me to write this. I felt an instant connection when learning of your childhood background and growing up in a religious family. I have a similar background and appreciate the unique challenges you would have faced to become famous. It seems to me that you have found the right balance. I trust your parents are proud. I certainly would be proud if I had a daughter like you.
Love and relationships challenge most of us. I have learned that this should be a matter for both the heart and the head. Relationship decisions made with only one or the other often fail. In respect to the ‘head’ part, there are four areas to consider. A partner should have similar values, beliefs, personality type and should share some common interests. For you, this would translate to a person who is hard working, has discipline and integrity, a strong work ethic, a faith in God but without being dominated by it, is flexible, adaptable and fun loving and most importantly, is a musician (or loves music). I hope this helps. stever6117@hotmail.com

Hi katy or whoever is reading this; my daughter wants nothing more than to have the opportunity to meet, talk and collaborate with katy. She absolutely loves Katy and hopes that one day she can sit and talk and sing with you. I want nothing more than to be able to make her wish come true. What can we do to make that happen? We saw you in miami and she just swears that you waved to her! That was one of the highlights of the concert. How can we get this to a reality?

I went to your show with my mom in Houston Texas, and really enjoyed your performance even though I suffer with Aspergers and being hearing impaired, that did not seem to matter and I love to sing--your inspiration to me and all children with Autism is great and I admire you. I participate in cheering as well as singing--and one day I would love to meet you in person. God Bless you for caring about children and adults with special needs. I will graduate next year from Acadiana High School in Lafayette La. and my mom takes me a lot of places and works 2 jobs to be able to give me a good life and also we walk with our faith in Jesus.

Hey Katy!! Ohhh em gee lol you are a total household name for me and my family! My oldest 2 are girls (5 & soon to be 7) and my youngest are 2 boys 1 & 2 yrs old) my daughter's are absolutely in love! My boys are so used to your music and videos they get down to lol. My 5 yr old adores you and her favorite song is firework....after it was heard on Madagascar that was it. She is so musically inclined and she knows all the words not to mention she knows all the words to all your songs.
Their father and I recently separated and these songs have gotten my kidsthrough this. I love the music and you in general as well your a complete inspiration to us all and eye of the tiger has become my New theme song along with wide awake.
Not only have you gotten me through hard times but my kids as well. My 7 yr old (Gianna) And 5 yr old (Isabella) live for your music and they can't wait to see you at halftime at the superbowl! They have had such a hard time with there parents splitting up your music is part of my children and I outlet we dance and and repeat a million times. Lol it's amazing how much one person can be such an impact and help a family going through hard times. They're biggest dream would be to meet you or see you live. We're in Philadelphia and I hope you come out here! Its a guilty feeling putting my kids through things I can't control...there father and I tried but we couldn't get it together after about 9 yrs. I want to get them in your fan club an autographed picture would mean the absolute world to them....me too haha but they are die hard fans!!!!
I love the messages in your music and I get sooo much out of it I think your just cool as hell and an amazing strong woman. Something I am trying to become for myself and my kids.
I hope you somehow receive this message because you have no idea how much you mean to our family...and I need you to know that you are a huge part of an outlet with our struggles! We love you Katy Perry... your absolutely awesome and I can only wish one day I can meet you with my girls it would make our life lol seriously though!
All love sent to you from me, Gianna, Isabella, David and Vincent (yes the boys are small but they dance soon as your on...which it's always lol)
Thank you for being you hey find me And make a trip to Philly haha paleeeasee (: we love you Katy!

I survived Cancer and serious complications and surgeries thanks to God, my family, and your song "Roar" which my family played to me before surgeries and again to bring me back to them and out of a coma. It would be so cool if at halftime you sang this song. The NE Patriots are my home team and I could not think of a better combo than you singing that song and them winning the game!!

Hey, Katy Perry, you are my number one role model. Your music changed my life, I have always been a fan of your music. I love how your never afraid to show your true self. I loved it when you dyed your hair dark purple. I would give anything to have my hair that color. I asked my mom but it was too expensive for her, but I guess I will have to wait.

My 6 year old daughter, jessica loves you. She wants to sing with you. She had a dream she met you and went on tour with you. She knows all your songs and when she sees you on the computer, she asks me if you are really real. It would be a dream come true for her to meet you in person, and I think you are pretty awesome too,lol.

While going thru my divorce 3 yrs ago, my son and I took to your song 'Firework'. He was 7 yrs old at the time. I don't know if he truly understood the meaning of the song. But till this day, when he hears your voice sing that song. He cries. I don't think its due to sadness but due to pure strength. This makes me cry to see him "feel" your words st his young age. I can't help but think that you helped him get thru, what must've been a painful time for him as well. Thank you for singing such beautiful words in such a powerful way! Our favorite part of Super Bowl XLIX was Firework!.... And yes WE both cried.

Thank you from stinkerbug04@yahoo.com

Dear Katy Perry...
I'm writing this letter on behalf of my daughter Liz. She loves you and your music. !! She is 20 years old soon she will be 21 in May, she is currently serving in the army. She joined the army as soon as she graduated high school, she didn't have time to enjoy life with family and friends.she spent a year in South Korea, and it was so hard for her to be so far away. She is stationed at Fort Campbell in Kentucky right now. I know you are probably busy, but if there is any way for you to visit her, I know that would be a dream come true for her!!, but if not if you could send her a card,picture autograph I would appreciate if soo much...she loves you and she always tell me she will love to go to a concert of Katy Perry..... I love my daugther so much and I miss her like crazy and I know it would mean so much to her....I can't even imagine her face if she will see you....she doesn't know about this letter.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.A mother who loves her daughter and i miss her so much.

I enjoy your music, your sound. I like christian music but most of it is too bland or too much like heavy metal. I think you could lead many to god by putting a pop spin on gospel. Something but a few have done, but i think you could do it best. It may be your calling. You can sing Like an angel. You inspire others with your music. Do it for god.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
