American singer-songwriter who has nine U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number one singles and has received various awards, including four Guinness World Records, five Billboard Music Awards, five American Music Awards, a Brit Award, and a Juno Award. She has been included in the annual Forbes lists of highest-earning women in music from 2011–2019. Her estimated net worth as of 2016 is USD$125 million. She is one of the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 18 million albums and 125 million singles worldwide.

Her parents, Pentecostal pastors Maurice Keith Hudson and Mary Christine Perry, are born again Christians, each having turned to God after a "wild youth". From ages 3 to 11, Katy Hudson often moved across the country as her parents set up churches before settling again in Santa Barbara. She had limited exposure to secular music during her childhood and pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. She signed with Red Hill Records, and released her debut studio album, Katy Hudson, under her birth name in 2001. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music. After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a deal with Capitol Records in April 2007.

Perry rose to fame in 2008 with the release of the singles "I Kissed a Girl" – which had attention-grabbing and somewhat controversial lyrics – and "Hot n Cold" from her second album, a pop rock record, One of the Boys. Her third album, Teenage Dream (2010), ventured into disco, and contained the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "Firework", "E.T.", and "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" as well as the number-three single "The One That Got Away". The album became the first by a female artist to produce five number-one Billboard Hot 100 songs, and the second overall after Michael Jackson's album Bad (1987). In March 2012, she reissued the album as Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, which produced the chart-topping singles "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake". Her fourth album, Prism, was released in 2013, and is influenced by pop and dance. It spawned the number-one singles "Roar" and "Dark Horse".

Her songwriting is mostly done in collaboration with others, especially Dr. Luke and Max Martin, and in songs such as "Firework" and "Roar" she stresses themes of self-empowerment and self-esteem.

Perry is known for an idiosyncratic and fun-based sense of personal fashion that incorporates bright colors and food-based themes. Her concert performances feature elaborate stagings and costuming. Perry has also made celebrity endorsements and released several perfumes. In July 2012, she released an autobiographical documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which concentrated on her life as a touring artist.

She married Russell Brand on 23 October 2010 in a traditional Hindu ceremony near the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary in Rajasthan. Brand announced on 30 December 2011 that they were divorcing after 14 months of marriage. Perry later stated that conflicting career schedules and his desire to have children before she was ready led to the end of their marriage, and that he never spoke to her again after sending a text message that he was divorcing her while Brand asserted that he divorced her due to her commercial success and reluctance to engage in activism. She was initially distraught over their divorce, and said that she contemplated suicide. After the marriage ended in 2012, Perry began a relationship with singer John Mayer that August.

Perry began a relationship with actor Orlando Bloom in early 2016, and the couple got engaged on 14 February 2019. Following the release of her single "Never Worn White" in March 2020, Perry revealed in the accompanying music video that she was expecting her first child with Bloom. She gave birth to a daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom on 26 August 2020.

Craft quotes birth certificate (#84-4156) in hand from Santa Barbara County Clerk, Recorder and Assessor.

(Previously Joe Polise quotes the biography, "Katy Perry: An Unofficial Biography" by Alice Montgomery. On 24 April 2015 S.C. provided the following: "A physical copy of Alice Montgomery's 'Katy Perry: An Unofficial Biography' should to be double checked for 6:59 AM. It's available for preview on Google and the part stating her birthdate, the area you'd most expect time mentioned, is not there. I found articles of her saying she's a 'triple Scorpio.' I think California allows informational BCs if nobody can re-check the physical book." Elle UK, Sydney Morning Herald, GQ

Susan Miller is quoted in an [1] article by Erin O' Sullivan saying "She's a triple Scorpio. She's Scorpio with Scorpio rising, the moon in Scorpio.")
