Kate Perry: A Life of Fireworks

A revealing biography detailing how Katy Perry made her transformation from demure choir girl to sexy household name and one of the most popular female singers in the world today. This book has the inside story on how Katy, once a devout preacher's daughter, abandoned her Bible in a dusty corner to replace it with a life of sex, drugs and rock and roll, enduring criticism from her strict parents and former Christian record label in the process. It tells of the conflict she experienced growing up with a deeply religious minister for a father despite her penchant for skimpy attention-grabbing outfits and subversive lyrics. It details the dark secrets and desperate depression that preceded her rise to fame, followed by tales of her meteoric chart success and her love affair and subsequent marriage to notorious comedian Russell Brand. It also details her ill-fated early gospel career and her fight for individuality with both producers who wanted to pigeon-hole her as a manufactured act and peers who believed pop music was the work of Satan. Features exclusive interviews with Katy's friends, religious mentors, producers, school tutors and more. It also gets behind the scenes by interviewing the girl whose lesbian kiss inspired the hit track ‘I kissed A Girl’, which made the No. 1 spot in 18 different countries. A fascinating account of the moment music replaced God as Katy's only true religion.
