Katy Perry was born into a family of pastors. Influenced by her sister, Katy Perry decided to pursue singing and took professional singing lessons when she was just nine years old. At the same age, she performed at their parents’ church and later expanded her audience by performing in public. Katy Perry confirmed to herself that she wanted to pursue music as a career, and after completing her GED at 15, she left high school (Dos Pueblos) and signed a deal with Red Hill Records and even released her debut album entitled “Katy Hudson” under their label, however, after the failure of the album, Perry moved out to Los Angeles, and in 2004 signed a deal with Columbia Records.

In addition to her singing career, at that time Perry worked at “Taxi Music”, a company that is based on helping musicians and songwriters. Before her major success, Perry did fairly well, as one of her songs was included in the soundtrack of the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”, and she provided backing vocals for such artists as Mick Jagger and P.O.D.

Katy Perry’s breakthrough came shortly after. In 2008, Perry released a song called “I Kissed A Girl”, as the main single from her second album “One of the Boys”; the single peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts; and attracted considerable media attention towards her. Even though the album itself gathered rather mixed reviews, it produced another commercially successful single “Hot ‘n’ Cold”. With the success of the songs, Katy Perry ventured on her first world tour called Hello Katy Tour, and also participated in the Warped Tour, as well as Summer Tour 2009 with rock band No Doubt. Katy Perry was at the peak of her career at the time, and therefore her net worth was increasing as well.

A year later, in 2010, Katy Perry came out with her third studio album called “Teenage Dream” that peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and sold over 2.7 million copies in the United States alone, which in turn earned it a two times platinum certificate from RIAA. The album featured songs with Snoop Dogg and Kanye West and gained Perry a permanent place in the entertainment industry, especially after she guested as a judge on “American Idol” the same year.

Aside from just music, Katy has appeared in several TV productions and films, including, “The Smurfs” (2011) and “The Smurfs 2” (2013); Katy Perry: Part of Me (2012); and most recently in 2015 “Brand: A Second Coming”, “Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour”, “Katy Perry: Making of the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show”, “Jeremy Scott: The People’s Designer”, and “Zoolander 2”. All added to her net worth, which has been recognised by Forbes  magazine listing her as the “Top-Earning Woman In Music”  from 2011 to 2015.

In her personal life, Katy was married to English entertainer Russell Brand from 2010-12, and has then apparently been in a relationship with singer John Mayer.
