This August, the Grammy-nominated artist will release her next album, "Teenage Dream," which features "California Gurls," the fastest-rising single to Top 10 radio in more than four years.
In addition to selling five million albums worldwide, the Santa Barbara, CA-born Perry has appeared on the covers of dozens of publications, including Seventeen, Cosmopolitan and Glamour. She also served as a guest judge at the auditions on the most recent season of American Idol. Perry was voted Best New Artist in 2008 by readers of Rolling Stone and Best New Act at the 2008 Europe Music Awards. More recently, she was named one of People's "Most Beautiful People," one of Entertainment Weekly's "Entertainers of the Year," one of Esquire's "Women We Love" and No. 1 on Maxim's 2010 "Hot 100" list.
