Katy Perry Height

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).

“I Kissed A Girl”

“I Kissed A Girl” was the song that truly busted open the door to fame for Katy Perry. Since that was Katy’s breakout song, we’re going to dive into it headfirst and examine a couple of the stories surrounding it.

But first, let’s watch the music video again!

Katy explained the spark which triggered it all to the British music magazine, Q Magazine back in 2009. Quoting what we read in the interview; “The song was inspired by a friendship I had with a girl when I was 15, but I didn’t kiss her. I was totally obsessed with her”. Katy goes on to say she still talks with her but she doesn’t know the song is about her!

This version is different than what is quoted in what are normally other online sources that quote her as saying she did kiss the girl.

Another wave of controversy revolved around female music artist Jill Sobule, who put out a song with the exact same title before Katy. Critics feel that Sobule’s song was more meaningful because of the emotions she communicates in the tune.

Controversy was an ongoing issue for other reasons as well. Some critics claimed its sole intention was to garner attention for Katy’s career, and others stating it promotes homosexuality. We think these folks need to get a life… You can check out the lyrics yourself here

Perhaps the weirdest thing about “I Kissed A Girl” was the fact that a number of  people at the Capital Records label were resistant to the song altogether. There were concerns it would never sell due it controversial nature and some execs didn’t even want it on the album! Apparently the big shots were especially worried it wouldn’t sell in the conservative Bible-belt region of the U.S..

There is a popular story about a junior position A&R representative named Chris Anokute as having played a primary role in Katy’s breakout. A&R reps  are responsible for scouting for new talent and helping the talent a record label currently has. Mr. Anokute had himself broken into the music business by serving as an apprentice to Mr John Houston; father of legendary singer, Whitney Houston.

As the story goes Anokute advised Dennis Reese (SVP of Promotions at Capital Records) that Katy needed her music exposed to a broader audience. The MP3 single was then released for sale at iTunes on May 21, 2008.

Dennis pushed to get the song released on national radio and a Memphis, Tennessee station named The River rolled the dice. Three days into the experiment the station was receiving an onslaught of  requests for the tune. The rest they say, is history.

Katy Perry Measurements

Katy’s impressive body measurements depend on who you’re talking to. Katy, and her public relations ‘people’ have released some numbers that other people disagree with (how surprising).Katy Perry Measurements

The official measurements were 32D-26-33, and ‘sometimes’ she’s a 32DD. It’s pretty clear that when performing, her cup size is a bit larger thanks to some ‘stuffing’.

Let’s start with the first number, thirty two. You’re thinking,”Wow that’s small, how is that possible?” It’s because the first number has to do with the circumference around her whole body – which is small.

A woman can have a 38 inch measurement, but still have tiny boobs!

Fortunately for Katy, she has an ample bosom; yet she’s still more likely to be a ‘C’ cup than a ‘D’.

Her waist measure twenty six inches- which isn’t extremely narrow is it?

The measurement for her hip size comes in at thirty three inches; which is a number most woman just dream about having.

The overall effect of her measurements is what really matters and I don’t hear anyone complaining about that. Would you?

Dark Horse Katy Perry

“Dark Horse”

Katy Perry’s song “Dark Horse” immediately made quite a stir when released; and then even more so when the music video released in February, 2014.

First was Katy’s unique style, which received mixed critical reviews; but proved to be very popular from New Zealand to Sweden, and from the U.S. to Venezuela.

Then you add the fact that another performer, Hip-Hop artist ‘Juicy J’ was commissioned to add another dimension the song; both in the lyrics and with his visual presence.

Katy’s costume and stage theme was both praised and criticized for its strong references to the ancient Egyptian culture. On top of that; on her “Dark Horse” music video, the symbol on pendant worn by a man she ‘dissolved’ ended up being digitally edited (masked). This is due to a petition from the Muslim community with over sixty-thousand signatures which objected to the symbols meaning.

The music video theme was to blend the ancient Egyptian culture with modern day Hip-Hop Memphis Tennessee. (Juicy J’s hometown). The video’s director (Mathew Cullun) was brought in by Katy thanks to his having directed Katy’s “California Gurls” video – which she obviously liked.

 

Live Performances of “Dark Horse”:
“IHeartRadio Music Festival” – Las Vegas, NV. – September 20, 2013
“ITunes Music Festival” – London, England – September 30, 2013
“We Can Survive Benefit Concert” – Hollywood ,CA – October 23, 2013
