Gothica Perry

Katy Perry, is going through a “Goth” phase these days .

Perry, who began her music career as a Christian artist, relayed a story about growing up not being able to listen to secular music.She and her folks belonged to the churches and all what they did was gospel .Grom gospel to goth ,Katty has come a strange long way . In her own words “I wasn’t allowed to listen to secular music, so every time I would go over to my friends house I would make them turn on MTV real quick. And one of my friends… one day pulled out a record, a song in particular called “Killer Queen” by Queen. 

I remember hearing that song and — I don’t know if you have that moment in your memory because you work in the music industry — there was that one song that hit you like a shockwave and I remember falling down in what felt like slow motion in my bed listening to the lyrics of “Killer Queen.” And I thought to myself, ‘Oh my gosh, this music is incredible. These lyrics speak to me…’ and that’s what made me want to be what I am today. 

So thank you for selling that record to her, so that I could have that one moment, that epiphany that led me to this place today.

Katty has was declared the artist of the year at NARM music awards on Thursday May 10.

Soon Katty promises to disappear for a while . Such strong is her urge for a vacation !
