After earning a GED during her first year of highschool, she began to pursue a career in music. As Katy Hudson, she released a self-titled gospel album in 2001, which was unsuccessful. She later recorded an album with production team The Matrix and .pleted the majority of a solo album from 2004/5, neither of which were released. After signing with Capitol Music Group in 2007, her fourth record label in seven years, she adopted the stage name Katy Perry and released her first Inter. single "Ur So Gay" that November, which garnered public attention but failed to chart. She rose to fame with the release of her second single "I Kissed a Girl" in 2008, which went on to top international charts. Perry’s first mainstream studio album One of the Boys followed later that year and subsequently, became the thirty third-best selling album worldwide of 2008. It was accredited platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America, while "I Kissed a Girl" and her second single "Hot n Cold" both received multi-platinum certifications.

The album included hit singles "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "Firework" and "E.T." , all of which topped the charts on the Billboard Hot 100, making the Teenage Dream album one of only nine albums to ever produce four or more Hot 100 number ones. With "E.T." at number one on the chart of May 12, 2011, Perry became the first artist in history to spend a whole year, 52 consecutive weeks, in the top 10 of Billboard Hot 100. Perry has a contralto vocal range. Because of her low vocal range, she lowers the key of many of her songs while singing live in order to perfect her sound. Among Perry’s musical influences are Alanis Morissette,pop rockers Cyndi Lauper, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Shirley Manson,and Freddie Mercury,the late frontman of the British band Queen. Growing up listening to gospel music, Perry had few references when she began recording songs. Asked by the producer with whom she would like to collaborate, Perry had no idea. That night, she went with her mother to a hotel. Inside, she turned on VH1 and saw producer Glen Ballard talking about Morissette;Ballard produced Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill, the album that had a "huge influence" on Perry.She told her initial collaborator that she had decided to work with Ballard. The producer arranged a meeting for her and Ballard in Los Angeles. Perry presented him a song, and a day later she was called. Ballard developed Perry for a few years. Perry described her music by saying, "Someone kind of penned it for me the other day, and I’ve been using it ever since."According to her, she has "changed a lot between the ages of 15 to 23."Her first album dwells on Gospel music.She related that her perspective in music was "a bit enclosed and very strict", and everything she did was church-related.Her second album, One of the Boys, is described as "secular" and "rock," and reflects a departure from her religious musical roots. Perry expects to record more pop songs for her next album. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
