About Katy PerryKaty Perry was actually born Kathryn Hudson in Santa Barbara California, but changed to her stage name following an unsuccessful gospel release in 2004, and turned her hand to pop. She's been outstandingly successful since, with her first album as 'Katy Perry' producing multinational number one single I Kissed A Girl as well as top ten singles Hot N' Cold and Waking Up In Vegas. A second album under her new name is expected sometime in 2010. She's also become well known for her intentionally comical sense of style, which often references fruit (especially watermelons) as part of her outfits. As a result she's recently found herself the object of plenty of attention from designers as well as music lovers. A feud with Lilly Allen has made the headlines lately, as has a lawsuit against Perry from an Australian designer of the same name.
