Over the past few years, Katy Perry has made a name for herself in many different media outlets. Radio, television, touring and the internet have been very kind to her, and she has made a career out of simply being herself. With 2012's "Part of Me", a feature length film chronicling Perry's journey from her Christian roots to the singer that people are familiar with today.
The movie is not only about her professional life, but her personal struggles as well. These include trying to distance herself from an image that she grew up with, coming to terms with her superstardom, and her relationship with (and ultimately divorce from) Russel Brand. Mixed in with the various scenes of Perry's life, "Part of Me" also features performances from the "California Dreams" tour, giving viewers a look at what a Katy Perry concert experience is like.
Released in 3D, "Part of Me" was geared toward fans of all ages, and simply tried to let people further into the life of Katy Perry. It gave viewers the opportunity to get to know more about Perry's life, and learn about her throughout each stage of her life. Performances of Perry's from her childhood, from earlier and unreleased albums, as well as videos of Perry's family and friends build the complete picture of the young woman's life a career. Even the personal moments - fights, mistakes, drama - are all documented for the world to see.
This film also includes cameo appearances by other celebrities and musicians. Some, like Ellen DeGeneres are people that have helped and promoted Perry throughout her career, but others like Adele, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Rihanna provide the perspective of other musical talent on Perry's rise to fame.
This movie was made to give people the chance to see what it's like to live the life of a very popular and talented female singer, and over the course of it's length it does just that. "Part of Me" is a movie that follows Katy Perry throughout her life's journey from childhood to 2011, and holds very little back. The extensive amount of effort that went into the filming and promotion of this movie is a testament to how much work Perry and her entourage went through to make everything possible.
Although Perry's wardrobe is sometimes a bit revealing, and some of her lyrical (and video) content is not for a younger crowd, "Part of Me" is an overall enjoyable movie. It would have been extremely difficult to remain ignorant to Katy Perry over the last few years, and this "3D experience" gives people a glimpse into the very interesting life of a talented young woman - as well as sends a message to other young people that have dreams of fame and fun.
Everyone, don't even bother going out in costume tonight for Halloween. Katy Perry already won. The "Roar" singer headed out to Kate Hudson's day-early Halloween part on Thursday night, and showed off a costume that nobody expected. That's right: Katy Perry dressed up as a Flamin' Hot Cheeto. This costume takes dedication, people. All night, you have to watch your headroom as you have approximately 18" of Cheeto above your head. Is it even possible to sit down in that thing? We have to give Katy extra points for the purse made out of a Cheeto bag.
Despite talk that the two had split, singers John Mayer and Katy Perry aren’t acting like anything is amiss between them. The “Part of Me” star, 27, has been seen multiple times now with Mayer, 34, including the FYE concert a few nights ago, as well as having a nice dinner at Little Door Restaurant in Los Angeles, more recently. Reportedly the two have reunited after Perry bombarded Mayer with a series of drunken text messages, begging him to take her back… because what stand-up guy can resist that kind of desperation? He also reportedly dumped the Perry via e-mail in a really classy maneuver, so if that rumor’s true, then way to go, Perry.
Katy Perry is taking her talents to Phoenix! The "Roar" singer has been tapped by the NFL to play the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show early next year, according to a report from Billboard. The game has been set to play at the home of the Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix, so at least Katy will have an air-conditioned dome to perform in. Perry was in consideration for the gig for a while, alongside Coldplay and Rihanna. However, Rihanna got into a bit of a tiff with CBS when they removed her song "Run This Town" from their NFL programming following the news of Ray Rice punching his fiancee on video.
Katy Perry, you're a whopping few days removed from a fizzled fling with singer-songwriter/tail-hound John Mayer. What are you going to do next?! Wait, really? Disney vacation? Well, OK, then. To Space Mountain! Not one to do the breaststroke in her own tears after Us Weekly made the musical lovers' quick split public Aug. 23, the eight-time Grammy nominee instead scooped up best pal Shannon Woodward and made for Anaheim, Calif.'s original Mecca of Mouse Aug. 25 to let The Happiest Place on Earth turn her tide, HollywoodLife.
Oh, noes! And here we’ve been doodling “Katy and John 4evs” all over our pink binders. In a bit of news that probably won’t raise a single eyebrow, singer and “Part of Me” star Katy Perry has split with her poor choice of rebound man, self-absorbed and stretchy-faced singer John Mayer. The two were never (until this momentous occasion) confirmed as a couple, but the Internet abounded with plenty of pics of the two canoodling, having sleepovers, and being overall pretty obviously being bone buddies.
Can't bear the wait until July 5 to see Katy Perry's premiering 3-D concern film, "Katy Perry: Part of Me?" Would a three-day jumpstart leave you with soiled undergarments of supreme bliss? One word: Twitter. Paramount Pictures and Deadline announced Thursday that Perry's @KatyPerry followers get dibs on tickets to early screenings of the concert event in RealD 3-D in the U.S. and Canada July 2. Scoring the passes comes as simple as tracking the hashtag "#KP3DMovieSneak.
Katy Perry has finally had enough of ex-husband Russell Brand, but, really? This is what puts her over the edge? Perry has called her lawyers and demanded a gag order to be placed on Brand, because apparently the greasy fast talker just won’t close his mouth about their marriage. A friend close to the “Part of Me” star let slip, “Katy is fed up with Russell constantly making references to their marriage in interviews. While it’s mainly harmless and often even complimentary, she’s sick to death of his comments being splashed all over the news and magazines.
We reported just a few days ago that pop sensation Katy Perry had confirmed her own 3D concert movie, now titled "Part of Me." Here we are, a few days later in the week, and the trailer is already out. It was only a matter of time before this movie happened: with the success of "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" and the kinda-success of "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie," it makes sense that a pop star as big as Katy Perry would follow suit. After all, we're talking about the first pop singer since Michael Jackson to have this many #1 singles.
