Katy Perry Height Controversy
The Katy Perry height question is just one of those simple questions about her that nobody really seems to have a definitive answer for. She has been quoted in a article saying she was 5′ 8″ tall, but all sorts of people think that height is an exaggeration.
We’re not sure why anyone who isn’t freakishly tall (or short) would want or need to lie about something as normal as how tall they are. But we do know as with any famous figure, there is always someone who has their opinion to add to the conversation.
Some observers try and come to a conclusion based on how tall see looks when standing next to another celebrity. Our question with that idea is how do we really know how tall the celebrity she’s being compared to is – if everyone seems to be prone to exaggerating?
Going a step further, other guessers have taken the difference between another person and with Katy wearing high-heels; as if that makes the job of getting an accurate answer easier somehow.
It would make more sense to make a comparison if we had Katy standing next to a object with a confirmed height, and she was barefoot. Perhaps a photo shoot with her holding a 6′ surfboard at the beach. I wonder how quickly we could find a California surfer willing to volunteer for this assignment? Then again; there are plenty of surfers in Australia as well, and her PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is headed ‘down-under’ this year.
Katy has stated in Elle magazine article in 2011 that she’s normally weighs about 130 pounds which may help corral some of the arguments about her weight, at least until next week rolls around.
The biggest argument seems to be about Katy’s bust size but that’s a whole different story you can read about here. [link to other page]
We should be pretty happy with following overall consensus is on Katy’s approximate height. That would be five feet seven inches, to five feet eight inches tall; which works out to about 171-173 centimeters (cm).
