It’s surprising to think the California Gurl who generated online buzz with “Ur So Gay” and shot up the charts with the Sapphic sweet-talker “I Kissed a Girl” started out as the daughter of two pastors who wasn’t allowed to listen to secular music as a child and who started her career as a Christian singer under the name Katy Hudson. Or maybe not, if you believe the old saw about preacher’s daughters--and if you know Katy Perry claims her life changed when she discovered Queen as a teenager. By 2004, she’d worked with Glen Ballard and the Matrix, was signed to Columbia, and was being hailed by the likes of Blender as The Next Big Thing. But it wasn’t until she released her debut One of the Boys on Capitol in 2008, followed by Teenage Dream in 2010. In 2012 Perry broke into the film world, voicing the role of Smurfette in The Smurfs and starring in her 3D concert film Katy Perry: Part of Me.
