MEG!! You are MADE OF GUM DROPS!!!So- My friend Meg who sent me the Katy Perry in Japan video sent me this! I see that it's posted on Perez Hilton now, but she sent it to me before I read Perez today, so she gets ALL the CREDIT!!!
Thank you Meg!!!!!This is a video of Katy Perry performing at 16!!!!!!
This was back when she went by her name- Katy Hudson-and was a contemporary Christian music singer. She's performing at the 'Glass House' Club in Pomona, CA!
She has SO much personality! I can't say enough how much I'm inspired by this chick-I heard her music one day and was doing my disco point in the car-it was pure ear magic-Then I saw her pic and thought she looked just like Zooey Deschanel-WHO I LOVE, so points there, but she's not copying Zooey-they both have distinct styles! Finally-After seeing her perform and talk, her personality just felt very real, querky, and playful-That's how I try to live my life-She just felt like a kindred spirit(and neither of us were allowed to watch MTV-actually, I remember the FIRST time I saw MTV being in 10th grade!! when I saw a 'No Doubt' video playing on a friends tv). Her parents are both ministers now, but before they got saved they had quite a wild lifestyle-her mom went on a date with Jimi Hendrix! My parents had the same experience.
Also-I'm pretty sure both she and I grew up as the "Pink Sheep" in our families.
