Katy Perry Bio
Thanks to the highly acclaimed song “I Kissed a Girl”, the extravagant Katy Perry became known. The young Californian, whose real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, in a family of pastors.
The singer’s childhood is therefore not the most frivolous. Katy Perry is educated in her parents’ ministry, spends her holidays in Christian camps, and is forbidden to listen to anything other than the gospel! Her parents noticed her talent as a singer, however, and encouraged her to take singing lessons. The pretty brunette released her first gospel album in 2001, which turned out to be a bitter failure. Surprising.
In 2008, Katy chose another path, much less Catholic, and her single I Kissed a Girl, more evocative than the praises of Jesus, was an incredible success: it sold more than six million copies. The album from which it is taken is a hit, with the singles Hot N Cold and Thinking Of You. His second disc under his stage name, Teenage Dream, was released in 2010, then in an enhanced version in 2012.
Since the beginning of 2016, she has been dating Orlando Bloom, but in February 2017 their agents announced their separation. In May 2018, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are together again. On September 26, 2018, the two actors officially appear at the Monte-Carlo for the Global Ocean evening. In February 2019, the two actors got engaged. In March 2020, on Instagram, the singer announces her pregnancy, the birth is scheduled for the summer. The couple is expecting a daughter. On August 27, 2020, Orlando Bloom announced on Instagram the birth of Daisy Dove.
