What year did Katy Perry form?
Katy Perry is originally from Santa Barbara, California. She was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson and was raised by Christian parents, so therefore Perry listened to a ton of Gospel music growing up and even sang in the church choir. Perry even released a Gospel album in 2001 under the name Katy Hudson which was unsuccessful partially because of the closing of her record label. She later recorded the same album with a different label, but that album was also not released. In 2007 Perry's musical style changed and so did her stage name as she was now known as Katy Perry. In 2008 Perry finally made a name for herself releasing the single "I Kissed a Girl" which topped charts internationally and also got heavy radio play in North American markets.
She's made appearances on Saturday Night Live, and married comedian and actor Russell Brand in October 2010, another entertainer whose start is rising exponentially. The relationship and the actually wedding were fodder for tabloid publications across the globe as the two young stars had a 7 day long wedding. Citing Alanis Morissette, Cyndi Lauper, Pat Benatar and Joan Jett as her influences, Perry mixes teenage pop with humorous lyrics and an unconventional style of dress.
