HOLLYWOOD, CA (April 3, 2012) – Paramount’s Insurge Pictures today announced they have partnered with Katy Perry, Direct Management, Imagine Entertainment, AEG and co-financing partner EMI on a 3D feature film starring Katy. To be released on July 5, 2012, KATY PERRY: PART OF ME will be a first-ever big-screen look at the international superstar’s life both on and off-stage.  

Said Katy, "I am so excited to paint the silver screen in 3D color with help from our friends at Paramount and Imagine. For the last year and a half, I have intimately documented my life both on and off the stage of The California Dreams Tour. I want to take you behind the cotton candy clouds and reveal the highs and lows and nuts of bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me."  

President of Paramount Film Group, Adam Goodman said, “Katy’s one-of-a-kind story, and our unique ability at Insurge to create equally unique movie going experiences, was a natural fit. We’re beyond excited to offer her fans, who inspired this movie, and moviegoers everywhere, this once-in-a-lifetime look into her world and capture a moment in time.”  

"This has been a milestone year for Katy. She is emblematic of the culturally forward thinking artists that we endeavor to highlight at Insurge, so when the opportunity came about to work with her on this film, Adam and I immediately jumped at the chance," said Amy Powell, President Paramount Insurge.    

Katy began documenting her California Dreams Tour, consisting of 124 performances, over a year ago. Her management team, Direct Management, soon after brought AEG into the project to film the artist's two shows at Staples Center in LA in 3D. A partnership with Imagine Entertainment followed.  

Directed by the Magical Elves team of Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth (JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER), KATY PERRY: PART OF ME is produced by Katy, along with Martin Kirkup, Bradford Cobb, and Steven Jensen of Direct Management; and Academy Award®-winner Brian Grazer (8 MILE, A BEAUTIFUL MIND) of Imagine Entertainment. The film’s executive producers include Craig Brewer (FOOTLOOSE, HUSTLE & FLOW), Randy Phillips of AEG, Erica Huggins and Michael Rosenberg of Imagine Entertainment; and Ed Lovelace and James Hall of Pulse Films. Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald and Max Martin, who co-wrote the title song with Perry, will serve as co-producers, along with Nanette Bernstein (AMERICAN TEEN), Thomas Benski and Dan Bowen of Pulse Films, Anna Culp of Imagine Entertainment, and Archie Gips of Magical Elves.  

Katy's new single, "Part Of Me" debuted in the #1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 on February 22nd, making it the first in a year, and only the 20th in 53 years, to debut at #1. Since the 2008 release of “One of the Boys,” Perry has topped the charts in more than 25 countries and has sold more than 50 million digital tracks and mobile products, as well as 10 million albums worldwide. Her hits include “I Kissed a Girl”, “Hot N Cold”, “Thinking Of You”, “Waking Up in Vegas”; as well as "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "Firework", "E.T.", "Last Friday Night", and "The One That Got Away", all from the "Teenage Dream" album. A special edition of Katy’s double platinum album “Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection," was released on March 26th.  

An EMI artist, Katy is represented by managers Bradford Cobb, Martin Kirkup, Steven Jensen and Ngoc Hoang of Direct Management Group, Inc.

NARM to Honor Katy Perry with “Artist of the Year” Award at Music Biz 2012

NARM to Honor Katy Perry with “Artist of the Year”
Award
at Music Biz 2012

March 26, 2012 – NARM, the music business association, will present its “Artist of the Year” Award to global superstar Katy Perry during the Music Biz 2012 Awards Dinner Party on Thursday, May 10, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. Perry had a banner year in 2011, tying Michael Jackson’s record for most No. 1 singles from one album when five tracks from her Capitol Records sophomore release, Teenage Dream, topped the charts. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts in August 2010, achieved double Platinum certification in the U.S. and has sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide. The album also earned four Grammy nominations in 2011, including Album of the Year, and two in 2012 for the single “Firework.”  

“Katy’s music was absolutely everywhere over the past year, and her dominance of the singles charts is a nearly unprecedented accomplishment,” said Jim Donio, President of NARM. “While Katy was a highly successful artist prior to Teenage Dream, she has unquestionably blossomed into a true global superstar and has earned this Award in every sense of the word."  

Now, with the impending release of Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection on March 26, Perry is poised to continue her success into 2012 and beyond. The album will feature the original Teenage Dream as well as three new tracks, including “Part of Me,” which Perry debuted during an electrifying performance at this year’s Grammy Awards. The track sold more than 400,000 copies in its first week., and debuted at #1 Billboard in its first week, a feat achieved only 20 times in the past 53 years.  

This summer Katy will be coloring the silver screen when her first film, “Katy Perry: Part Of Me”, is released worldwide by Paramount Insurge. The 3-D documentary reveals Katy’s life on- & off-stage during the past year, which she noted to BBC Radio 1, “was the most intense year I think of my life.”  

Perry burst onto the scene in 2008 with her debut album, One of the Boys, and its provocative hit single “I Kissed a Girl,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album achieved Platinum status in the U.S., selling more than 3 million copies worldwide, and earning two Grammy nominations in 2009 and 2010. After touring the U.S. and Canada as part of the 2008 Warped Tour, Perry embarked on her first headlining tour in 2009, quickly gaining notoriety for her outsized personality, forward-thinking fashion sense and dynamic stage shows. She then brought her vision to the world at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards with a blowout performance of Teenage Dream’s first single, “California Gurls,” that featured an appearance by legendary rapper Snoop Dogg. The resulting 124-date California Dreams Tour, which kicked off in February 2011, capitalized on that success to become one of the top concert draws of the year, placing 13th on Billboard’s annual Top 25 Tours list and earning nearly $50 million.

Former recipients of the “Artist of the Year” Award have included Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Green Day.
