Her first music album, ‘Katy Hudson,’ was released in 2001 and was a gospel music record. The album was released by the music label ‘Red Hill Records.’ Unfortunately, the album was not a commercial success.

Eventually, she moved away from gospel music and began writing songs with American songwriter Basil Glen Ballard, Jr. She moved to Los Angeles at the age of seventeen, but she had little success during her first few days there. She recorded a few songs with various record labels, but the albums were never released for a variety of reasons.

Perry was signed to Ballard’s label, ‘Java,’ in 2004, which later became affiliated with ‘The Island Def Jam Music Group.’
Katy Perry sang a song in the 2005 film ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.’ She also sang background vocals on songs like ‘Old Habits Die Hard’ and ‘Goodbye for Now.’ She appeared in the video for the song ‘Learn to Fly’ in 2006.

She also played Travie McCoy’s love interest in the music video for Travie McCoy’s rap rock band ‘Gym Class Heroes’ song ‘Cupid’s Chokehold.’
An acquaintance named Angelica Cob-Baehler introduced her to the chairman and CEO of ‘Virgin Records’ company, Jason Flom, and in 2007, she signed a contract with the ‘Capitol Records’ company.

The video ‘Ur So Gay,’ released in 2007, was intended to introduce her to the music market. Madonna later promoted the song by praising it on the ‘JohnJay & Rich’ radio show in 2008.
Her songs ‘I Kissed a Girl’ and ‘Hot n Cold’ from the album ‘One of the Boys’ were well received by listeners when they were released in 2008. The songs topped several music charts around the world. ‘I Kissed a Girl’ even reached the top of the ‘US Billboard Hot 100’ chart.
Other songs from the album were gradually released and were well received by music fans, making the album a huge success.

She performed on the ‘Warped Tour’ in 2008 and the ‘Hello Katy Tour’ the following year. She even performed on the ‘No Doubt Summer Tour’ in 2009. In addition, as a result of her success, the ‘Matrix Record’ reissued her album, which had been released a few years before.
Her live music album, ‘MTV Unplugged,’ was released in 2009. It featured five singles from the album ‘One of the Boys,’ as well as two brand-new songs. Perry and the band ‘3OH!3’ were also featured in the remix version of the song ‘Starstrukk.’

Singles such as ‘Thinking of You’ and ‘Waking Up in Vegas,’ released in 2009, charted in the top 30 of the ‘Hot 100.’
She and Timbaland performed a duet of the song “If We Ever Meet Again.” Timbaland’s 2010 album ‘Shock Value II’ included the song.
In 2010, her single ‘California Gurls,’ from her album ‘Teenage Dream,’ which also featured rapper Snoop Dogg, reached music fans.

This song, too, reached the top of the ‘US Billboard Hot 100’ chart. The same year, the single ‘Teenage Dream’ was released, and it, like the previous single from the album, topped the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ list.

At the same time, she served as a guest judge on shows such as ‘American Idol’ and ‘The X Factor UK.’
Her song ‘Firework,’ which was included on the album ‘Teenage Dream,’ was released in late 2010. This, like Perry’s previous songs, reached number one on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ list. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified this song 11 times platinum.

She appeared in ‘The Simpsons’ Christmas episode ‘The Fight Before Christmas.’ She became an entrepreneur after introducing her perfume ‘Purr’ to the market in 2010.

Her fourth song, ‘Extraterrestrial’ (E.T.) from the album ‘Teenage Dream,’ was released in 2011. The song, which also featured rapper Kayne West, was the number one song on the ‘Billboard Hot 100,’ making the album ‘Teenage Dream’ the ninth album to have four singles that topped the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ list.

Later that year, the fifth track from ‘Teenage Dream’ was released. This song also topped the ‘Hot 100’ list, making Katy Perry the first female artist to have five consecutive songs on the list and only the second artist to do so, the first being Michael Jackson. In 2011, she voiced a character named Smurfette in the film ‘The Smurfs.’

In 2012, she released an autobiographical documentary titled ‘Katy Perry: Part of Me,’ which was a box office success. The following year, she released her fourth album, ‘Prism,’ which debuted at the top of the ‘Billboard 200’ chart.

She reprised her role as Smurfette in ‘The Smurfs 2,’ a sequel to ‘The Smurfs,’ in 2013, and both films were commercially successful. The same year, she released her third perfume, ‘Killer Queen.’

She joined ‘UNICEF’ in April 2013 to help children in Madagascar with education and nutrition. She was officially named a ‘UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador’ on December 3, 2013.
