The American pop sensation clutched the eyes of millions around the world with her looks. She tugged at their heartstrings with her sultry voice. You can catch her as the judge on American Idol’s latest season seated along Luke Bryon and Lionel Richie. Her sensational albums broke the boundaries of what the pop genre was all about. ‘Daisies’ is her latest yet to release single and has been confirmed to release on May 15th.
You have probably heard about her in the news because of her unconventional fashion or her philanthropic work. She also topped the Billboard Charts multiple times from one album, Teenage Dreams. Katy Perry is the first female artist to have 5 #1 Singles on the Billboard Top 100. You might remember the only other person who did this – Michael Jackson with his album Bad. She is currently signed by Capitol Records. She is also stated as many artists of being the rare celebrity with a mass following but a down to earth personality.

She has also helped in spreading awareness about Breast cancer and HIV. She became the goodwill ambassador for UNICEF in 2013 and joined UNICEF to help children in Madagascar with nutrition and education.
She has faced her fair share of controversies and as the current judge of American Idol, she faced even more backlash. Maybe you felt a bit uncomfortable too when you watched the famous artist kiss the 19-year-old contestant on the show, Benjamin Glaze. You may be one of the people who had seen her interview with Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson. The very confusing interview where Katy made a very intellectual metaphor “Is Math Related to Science?”. Even pranking a contestant into voluntarily leaving the show left a bad impression for the viewers.
