Many people have been unsuccessful at their work at first but they have tried over and over again to better themselves rather than just quitting.
There are many celebrities today that at first were not getting work but then finally got that one hit song that raised them to the top. Katy Perry is a good example of this. Many celebrities or artist change their names and in this case Katy Perry’s real name is actually Katheryn Hudson.
Katy Perry tried to pursue a career in gospel music as a teen and her first album was put out in 2001 but it did not get as much attention as her music does now. She wanted more so where do you go when you want to be a big star? You go to Los Angeles. Many of her record deals fell through and as a teenager, how could one not get frustrated and want to quit. I would have thought maybe this isn’t the profession for me and that I was meant to do something else but Katy Perry kept on.
Katy’s parents were both ministers and they were very strict on everything that she did. In an interview she said, “ I come from a very non-accepting family, but I’m very accepting.” Perry’s parents have learned to try not to change their care free and wild child.
Perry didn’t get her big break until 2008 when her single “ I KISSED A GIRL” came out. It seems that sometimes you must change your image to reach stardom and that is exactly what Katy did when she promoted herself as a sex kitten.
Imagine coming from a strict home of two ministers where your music had to be snuck to you from friends because music was bad and all that should be done was read the Bible and then coming out with a hit song “I kissed a girl”.
Perry did not see success right away but eventually she did and it has opened her mind to a whole different realm of the world, from a conservative child to now a top pop star. She has sold out tours and people love to hear her music and watch her perform, her dream has come true!
