Katy Perry

The latest news about Katy Perry, the award-winning singer of such hit singles as Teenage Dream, and California Girls. Born in Santa Barbara, California, Katy Perry rose to fame, in part, due to the controversy over her single I Kissed a Girl, which flirted with the theme of same-sex attraction. Her colorful costumes and performances, as well as her catchy pop song, have made her a favorite among members of the LGBT community. She has endorsed several LGBT causes, including The Trevor Project. The dissolution of her marriage to Russell Brand was captured in her 2012 biopic Part of Me.
