Wide Awake - Artist Focus


Hey Guys...and Dolls!!

So this Artist Focus has been in the works for a while now! Can you guess who it is???



My favourite brunette risk-taker: KATY PERRY!! Just saying her name makes me smile :)

I can honestly remember the first time I heard little miss Katy Perry...I was driving home for my lunch break, it was raining and the people on my SIRIUS radio were all in a hizzy because of this new song called 'I Kissed a Girl'...and I'm like 'what new hip hop or indie guy put that song out?'...but the surprising part? It was by a GIRL!! A girl kissed a girl and she put it on the radio?!?!?! WHAT?!! That's crazy!...no...that's Katy!

She is a envelope pushing, risk-taker who makes people gasp at her songs. Buying her first album was sooo exciting, I couldn't wait to see what else she had out there and boy did I get an earful. I remember falling in love with Hot and Cold, the catchiness, the bluntness, and the cuteness of it. Another song I loved? Ur So Gay! Just a song that put Katy on the radar!

Now after that brilliance of a first album, I was sooo excited to see Katy at Warped Tour. It was cute because her then-bf Travie McCoy from Gym Class Heroes was also at the venue and it was his birthday and she surprised him with cake!! So cute!! Also at that event? An intoxicated female also tried to kiss a girl..which girl?...THIS GIRL! and I politely let her down..

So following the first album, I was really interested to see what Katy would put out as a follow-up..not wanting her to be a one album wonder. And boy did she not disappoint!! California Gurls came out and blew us all away...well me anyway..I don't wanna speak for anyone else! It was cute, it was fresh and it was fun and perfectly placed for summer! Other hits from that album? Teenage Dream, Not Like the Movies, and Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)

Her sound is so cute, so girly, and just really fun. It's easy, but Katy also has a power song vibe to her. Like the song that I'm listening to...she is wide awake when it comes to dealing with problems. And to heart those kinds of songs coming from her make Katy an all around artist. Can't wait to see what's next!!

Love ya Katy!!

Wishing you all great Teenage Dreams!
