However, Katy Perry has not always been such a mainstream source of inspirational and upbeat music. The history of her persona and direction of her music has changed over the years, her most popular stage behavior has been that of a vintage, candy-clad beauty queen, and her persona identifies with everything teenagers desire. Katy Perry has possessed many stage personas in her career, first producing music under a Christian label as the daughter of a pastor, and moving on to produce controversial songs such as “I Kissed a Girl” and “Last Friday Night.” The staff at NPRmusic wrote on Perry’s transformation saying,”Her fans know her current career is actually a second take. She first tried her hand in the music world as a teenager, making Christian music as Katy Hudson. She released an album in 2001, which failed to break through.” (NPR Staff).
