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".

Dear Katy Perry,
My name is Erica and I am 6 1/2 years old. I've been listening to your songs a lot because I really like you. I've been dreaming to be on stage with you. I would sing with you and it would be a dream come true. My favorite songs are Firework and Dark Horse. I live in New York. When are you coming back to New York? Can you send me an autograph picture so I can hang it in my room?
Love
Erica

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

Katy, my daughters Emily and Izzy (aged 6 and 4) are huge fans although, due to our location, we've never had the chance to meet you in person or even go to one of your concerts (we live in SW England). :-( I just wanted to say a big "Thank you" for your style, confidence and respectful nature that is apparent throughout all of your songs. I love the messages that come out in your songs regarding self respect and trust. Life is not all about sex and how many conquests you have. You are one of the only artists i've heard that actually encourages listeners to focus on themselves and how to love, trust and respect themselves!! You are a TRUE INSPIRATION...Bless you xx
It's my daughters 7th birthday in a few weeks time and we are having a "Katy Perry" Pop party with various games and activites based on your songs. It would mean a lot if you could send her a birthday email/video just to wish her many returns. I understand that you're very busy and get thousands of requests from fans all over the world but if you have time, she's only six and, a simple message would mean more to her than anything else. Her email address is lilmisstippett@hotmail.co.uk or you could send it via mine at mrs-plimuffpete@hotmail.co.uk

Hi, I am one of those fans that are not going to the concert because she sold out the 17,000 seats in the Coliseum in 24 hrs, and I am out because, the second day of sales of the tickets was sold out. The newspaper said that this will be the only show, but I want to let you know that are many people waiting for another show. Pleaseeeee!!! we need one more day of your show in P.R.

Dear Katy,
After You took the letter I was holding out to You during my eighth time at the PWT show (in Oslo) I want to thank You for that, I'm so glad and happy about having had the chance to contact You directly like this, I was never sure it was going to happen for me, and the next chance might be years away! I'm so sorry that my letter was written in a hurry and was rather a scribble, and not as nicely done as many of them usually are. I forgot to write a lot of things, too, but also wanted to keep it short, for not wasting Your time. It's been said that You read all the handwritten letters which You receive during a concert, and that's really awesome!
I want to thank You again, too, for having been such a wonderful, incredible inspiration to me to make my life better and better all the time by learning from the way You live Yours! I love the comments here, and to know that people love You so much - I do, too, and my biggest dream these days is to come to America and sing Your songs in the street (the kind of thing I've done for a living) in Santa Barbara, like You did years ago before things started to happen in Your life. Perhaps that will be soon, I'm an aging man, Katy, too old to plan for the future, I can only live and act now, and through You I've been learning a lot about how to, even if rather late!
You are such an incredible, wonderful person, and, like many other people, I love You so much!
With best, best, best wishes for the future, may You always be happy!

Dear Katy Perry,
I love listening to your music. I have been listening to it since you first became popular those years ago now. During my first tour in Afghanistan we use to play your music all the time. Now that I am married and have a daughter they both love your music. Your music is inspirational to us all.
I am currently moving around between bases but am located in Italy for the time. I have a permanent address of SGT KHRISTOPHER ZIMMERMANCMR 427 Box 1432 APO AE 09630. I would greatly appreciate a signed picture with COA for my wife (Lisa ) and Daughter (MaKayla), maybe even one for me if you have time. My daughter, who is 2, is always singing your music in the car and dancing to it at the house.

The IHM Sisters helped many artists. They helped Corita Kent and Valyermo Monks. Did you ever think you met them so they also can help your integration of your creative side and your spiritual side. Maybe after much prayer with the Valyermo Monks you could move to Gods Plan. Many of us like you both, so we would like the IHMs keep their property and you find a home to better serve your young career.

My daughter has been in love with you and your music for as long as I can remember. We went to your last 2 concerts in Houston. She even calls you mom. I guess that's a thing. She would freak if she could meet you but, would be thrilled to get an autographed photo, a letter, a phone call, something! She follows you on Twitter. Prisvatic is her Twitter name.

While I don't want to be mean or start anything, I just happened to be skimming down the website and read your comment. I'm sorry, but I believe that you shouldn't base your political beliefs on the liking of someone entirely. While I am no agreeing or disagreeing with those beleifs, that is no reason to stop believing in her. I am a big fan of hers... Not like stalker fan though. Lol. Anyway, I can guess that being a big celebrity has people her pushing her in every direction, so could you take it easy, please? I mean, I've never been famous, but I believe that everyone deserves their own opinions. Also, I guess I am biased forwards Katy Perry because she is a great artist and was on both my favorite shows, Raising Hope and How I Met Your Mother, by coincidence. What are the chances? Plus, she featured in 30h!3 Starstrukk. They are one of my favorite bands! Anyway... Getting off topic... I am a teenage girl and I know that you are one of the many bullies that she discourages in her song Firework.

My subject line suggests that whoever reads this will trash it like the rest of most of your messages. Assuming the worst in this industry is always most accurate. I am a singer/songwriter/guitarist but I DO NOT want any help of any kind. Katheryn, you and I share an almost identical history, one that I would like to share with you in person if fate, God, or the universe ever allows that possible. I truly believe that I could help you (and you help me) with life's journey of religion, crazy politics and reality. Again, I DO NOT want ANYTHING from you. . .nothing at all. I don't know why our Heavenly Father has placed you so deeply on my heart and mind for several years now. Again, I was raised the same way you were, but believe it or not, probably more strictly. My mother's middle name is Elizabeth. :-) Made me smile when I saw that your middle name was the same. I only want to offer comfort, support and encouragement. I know your lifestyle can sometimes get the best of you, and you need a "real" outlet away from all the media and fame. I was there at one point, and on a smaller scale, know what it is like. Life is short . . .shorter than we realize. We have to stick to those things that matter most in life. And those things have nothing to do with money, power or fame. It's that little girl inside of you that longs for hope, acceptance and eternal worthiness. I am praying that you do get this message and we can somehow connect before our lives as we know it expires. For no one is promised tomorrow. I will say this ONE MORE TIME: I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING AT ALL FROM YOU KATHERYN ELIZABETH HUDSON! Our treasures are in heaven. It is on my bucket list for me to meet and speak with you before leaving this earth. I do have "rich" friends that said they could make this happen. But I do not want want money to be any part of our gathering. I have followed you as an initial Christian singer to your breakout as a phenomenal pop artist and I may know you better than you know yourself. When God the Almighty places something on your heart, you MUST do all you can to withhold that yearning. As a woman who has been considered an outcast from her former church for being a lesbian/homosexual or whatever labels you want to call it, I have suffered enough pain and torment to know that MY GOD does not hate or judge me for being my natural self. Katy, Katheryn, or whatever you choose me to call you, I GET YOU!!! I know you have suffered and I truly sense you are suffering now. Let me be some no-name person that you can call a friend that will support and encourage you along your journey. For our journey isn't forever, and God knows we need honest, REAL people we can count on. So. . ..let's see if this page here is a joke or the real thing. I'm throwing my contact information out there because I believe in you, your heart, and the tireless hours you've put into your success. I know you want to give up sometimes. . .I can't explain it, but I sense your pain and struggles. Consider me an angel wanting to give you angel's wings when you need them the most. :-) Sincerely and with all my heart,

Jill

Hey Katy, I wanna give you the chance to further your career down an important path. How would you like to target a new group of listeners by performing for me and my friends sometime this spring. The whole situation would be mutually beneficial. We'd get a great show and you'd get to practice some new songs. Let me know.
