After her first failure, she then transitioned from Christian music to secular music and started writing songs with Glen Ballard after moving to California at the age of 17. Here, she adopted the stage name Katy Perry inspired by her mother’s maiden name to avoid confusion with actress Kate Hudson. It wasn’t before her second album “One of the Boys” hit the charts, that she tasted mainstream success. Madonna mentioned her song “Ur so gay” on the JohnJay & Rich radio show in April 2008 as being her favourite song of the time which also helped popularize Perry.
Perry wrote her 1st hit song, “I kissed a girl” about actress Scarlett Johansson. She loves jumping rope and she wears the same tracksuit every day so as to devalue the pictures taken by the paparazzi. She loves animals and has 2 dogs Nugget and Butters. Nugget even has her own Instagram page called Nugget Perry.
