Watch: The Career Evolution Of Katy Perry

How Katy Perry Became Famous

We all know and love Katy Perry as an outlandish fashion icon and pop sensation, but where did she get her start?

Known for her candy-themed stage shows and catchy songs, Katy has become a pop institution -- but who knew that Katy's real name is actually Katy Hudson and that her first single wasn't "I Kissed a Girl," but the similar sounding "Ur So Gay"? And that even though some of her songs like to push boundaries, she grew up in an ultra conservative household with both of her parents being pastors who refused to let her listen to any rock or popular music?

Sit back and join Celebuzz's Taryn Brooks and enjoy Katy's journey from one-time gospel singer to pop icon.
