Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, better known as Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984. After being interested in music since her childhood, Perry managed to sign with Red Hill Records to release her debut album, titled Katy Hudson, in 2001, which did not achieve much success. It was in 2007 when Katy signed a contract with Capitol Records, and in 2008 she managed to make the leap to fame thanks to her first material under the name Katy Perry: One of the Boys, with which she managed to have international hits such as "I Kissed a Girl" or "Hot n Cold". This material was followed by "Teenage Dream", with which Katy had even more success thanks to songs such as "California Girls", "Teenage Dream", or "Firework"; five of the six singles from that album were placed at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, thus becoming the first female artist to achieve such an accomplishment, as only Michael Jackson had achieved it with his album Bad. Until 2020, Katy has released five studio materials and triumphed thanks to other songs such as "Part of Me", "Dark Horse", "This is How We Do" or "Chained to the Rhythm". Katy is the only woman in U.S. history with three diamond certifications with three different singles; she has sold around 16 million albums and 135 million singles in her career, in addition to winning five Billboard Music Awards, five American Music Awards, a BRIT Award, among other awards.
