The Simple Guide To Katy Perry The Simple Guide to Katy Perry follows on from the successful books, The Simple Guide to Justin Bieber and The Simple Guide to Lady Gaga. Following the same format which has been so well received in our first two books we look at Katy’s early life, her family, education and early recording opportunities with Red Hill, Island and Columbia Records. When did Katy get her big break? Working with Dr Luke, Jason Flom recognising her talent ? Or a mixture of both. Taking a look at “I Kissed a Girl” and how they had to overcome controversy to ensure the success of the single and possibly Katy’s career. The album was a success and we look at subsequent albums, the awards she has won and where her career is going next. Any book about Katy wouldn’t be complete without a look into her personal life, her relationship with Russell Brand and their new home in Hollywood.
