In this day and age of MySpace, YouTube, and iPod commercials pimping the latest track it’s pretty rare to hear new music on the radio that I get too excited about…until three weeks ago when I was driving home from work and turned to Hot 99.5 with this kick ass song playing. It was “I Kissed a Girl” by Katy Perry. The DJ introed it by saying we should be on the look out for Katy and that she got mad love from Madonna. I loved the song instantly and when I got home went online to hear more and sure enough not only was Madonna, Queen of pop music, endorsing her and singing Katy’s praises but the rest of her tracks were just as good.
“One of the Boys” features hits like “I Kiss a Girl” and “UR So Gay” both climbing the charts and making a splash online and over the airwaves. The album has a good mix of fun, defiant rock, pop and punk-tronic beats with splash of style due in part to Katy’s killer pipes and the other part from her love of vintage 40’s clothes. I believe what you wear can influence ever aspect of your life so the clothes definitely make this woman. “One of the Boys” is now available so check it out in all the usual online spots and definitely check out her website www.katyperry.com. She’s got a blog section with crazy video blogs that will keep you coming back for more. From her personal entries on the road to her crazy fans, you’ll be completely entertained. Katy’s currently performing with the Warped Tour through August so get up off your ass and grab some tickets!
