Katy Perry

She came from a Christian family, singing Christian pop; a real little saint. Well, that was until she found the real music industry and we found out what a sinner she really was. She told us she kissed a girl and she liked it. Quite frankly, we liked it too. Katy Perry was born, a real edgy pop star with a huge sex appeal. She popped out song after song into the late 00s and became an international superstar.

She hasn't come without controversy. Her short marriage with Russell Brand became the topic of showbiz focus during the whole facade and she was also slammed by some Muslims for "portraying blasphemy" in her video for her single Dark Horse. More than 60,000 people signed a petition claiming offence after Perry is shown to burn a man wearing a pendant with the word "Allah" on it.

It's been almost two years since a studio album from Perry, so we expect she'll be back with something sooner rather than later!
