Phony News as Heard on Smartasses Radio

Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentKaty Perry Bio – Smartasses Magazine Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984) is an American singer, songwriter and actress. Born in Santa Barbara, California, Perry has German, Portuguese, Irish, and English ancestry. She has a younger brother named David, who is a singer, and an older sister, Angela. After earning a GED during her first year of high school, Perry later enrolled in the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, and studied Italian opera for a short period of time, before she began to pursue a career in music. She changed her surname to Perry, her mother’s maiden name, because Katy Hudson was too close to film actress Kate Hudson. Perry married Russell Brand on October 23, 2010. Brand announced on December 30, 2011, that they were divorcing.

Perry pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. She signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations. After being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, Perry signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007. She rose to fame in 2008 with the release of the singles I Kissed a Girl, which topped international charts, and Hot n Cold from her second album. According to Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems, Perry was the most played artist on radio of 2011. Throughout her career, she has won American Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and four Guinness World Records. In September 2012, Billboard dubbed Perry the Woman of the Year. In June 2015, her music video for Dark Horse became the first video by a female artist to reach one billion views on Vevo. The following month, her music video for Roar also reached one billion views on Vevo, making her the first artist to have multiple videos with one billion views.

Perry has supported various charitable organizations and causes during her career. She has contributed to organizations aimed at improving the lives and welfare of children in particular. Perry is also a gay activist. Growing up, she was raised by Christian pastor parents, grew up listening to only gospel music, and sang in her local church as a child. Perry and her siblings were not allowed to eat Lucky Charms as the term luck reminded her mother of Lucifer, and deviled eggs were referred to as angeled eggs. Her mother reportedly told the British tabloid Daily Mail that she dislikes her daughter’s music, calling it shameful and disgusting. On social media, Perry won the 2015 Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers, and became the first person to gain 80 million followers on the site in January 2016.

Why we think she’s hot:

Her song lyrics often speak for themselves, but when they don’t, we’ll gladly take Katy Perry’s attitude, outspokenness and overall scorpio-goodness as the consolation prize. But we don’t want to be greedy either. So let it be written that we here at Smartasses Magazine are just as fine also, if all we are permitted to do is to simply stare into Miss Perry’s huge, gorgeous blue eyes, and occasionally check our reflection in the shine of her vivid black, Vampirella hair.
