There are many songstresses out there but only one got everyone to nod in love with her talks about having the eye of a tiger and being a fighter dancing through a fire. Katy Perry in the 2013 song proclaimed herself a champion, promising we will hear her roar. It was a perfect song in every way.

The only problem albeit a very insignificant one was the timing of the song. It would have been the ideal song to announce Katy’s entrance into the music space. Most of us thought she was already a roaring champion when she dropped her “One of the Boys” album in 2008.

Katy Perry as an American singer, songwriter, actress and producer started-off as a gospel musician. Considering the kind of family she came from, she must have really danced through fire when she decided to move from doing Christian gospel music to secular ones. It is believed that Katy Perry is worth $330 million.

Katy Perry’s Early Life and Career Beginnings

Born in Santa Barbara, California on 25th October 1984 to Pastors, Katy was raised in a strict Christian home and listened only to Christian/gospel music. Her debut eponymous album was a gospel album released in 2001 under Christian label Red Hill. The album received positive reviews but didn’t do well commercially selling less than 200 copies. Fast forward 7 years later, Katy opted to do secular music and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 17.

Her debut single in secular music was “Ur So Gay” (2007), the sophomore single was also her major break. Topping international charts was “I Kissed a Girl” in 2008. She then released her second album and first secular music album “One of The Boys” which received multiple platinum certifications. Her other works include “Teenage Dream” (2010) which debuted at number 1 on Billboard 200 and “Prism” (2013) whose single “Roar” topped Billboard Hot 100. Two videos from the album received over a billion views on Vevo, making her the only musician to receive multiple billion views.

As an actress, Katy Perry has lent her voice to Smurfette character in “The Smurfs” and its sequel and have also starred in 2016 movie “Zoolander 2”.

Interesting Details About Her Height, Feet and Body Measurements

Having the right height with a body structure that’s proportional it is not unusual to come across Perry being described with words like “hot” or “sexy”.

The songstress is 6 inches taller than 5 feet (1.7 M), she wears size eight shoe and her body measurements are 36-25-35 inches. Katy has long and beautiful toes. Her feet always look healthy, reminding us the fact that the star takes a lot of interest towards keeping her feet and legs beautiful

In a 2009 article she mentioned her height, saying “I’m 5’8″, I’m tall-ish! I’m not that little of a rock princess”. She also mentioned in a video when talking about a tour bus ceiling height: “And if you’re taller than 5 foot 7, it sucks” also when she was taking part in a bungy-jump, her weight was written on her hand as 61kg (134lbs).

She was told Elle magazine ” that she wasn’t always so comfortable with letting it all hang out.

“I was shaped like a square at one time,” she says. “I was! I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cute. Those thick-ass straps! I got made fun of for the over-the-shoulder boulder holder…and all I wanted was to look like Kate Moss. Little did I know”—she casts an exaggerated look of admiration down at her own chest—”that these things would come in handy someday.”
