Katy Perry was born in 1984 and was raised in Santa Barbara. Growing up in a conservative household, she was prohibited from listening to pop and rock music, given her parents’ roles as pastors.
At the age of 9, she embarked on singing lessons, and by 13, she had taken up playing the guitar. Her early singing engagements primarily occurred within the church.
This multifaceted artist, recognized for her prowess as a pop singer-songwriter, actress, and guitarist, achieved prominence with her breakthrough single ‘I Kissed a Girl’.
