Find Out How Katy Perry Became One Of Music's Biggest Success Stories
Katy Perry rakes in more cash than some of Hollywood's biggest leading ladies. Here's how the outrageous songstress took over entertainment.
As the only musician besides Michael Jackson to ever have five No. 1 singles from the same album, Katy Perry was a no-brainer pick for our Hollywood Power Index's top 5.
Named the sixth best-selling digital artist in the United States, Perry pulls in approximately $45 million, thanks to her chart-topping tunes, mountains of promotional deals and movies.
Keeping her nose to the grindstone to get out her next album in summer 2013, the singer still finds time to spend her riches by jetsetting to colorful locales like Miami and Hawaii.
"I was not even nominated in this category and I have my own eyelash line," Perry remarked. "Take that, Bon Iver!"
Jokes aside, the songstress continues her meteoric rise - take that Hollywood!
