The “Dark Horse” singer, Katy Perry,is now back in the market and up for grabs after her reported break up with DJ Diplo. Rumours say that it was Diplo who concluded their short-lived relationship as Katy admits that she doesn’t want to be in anything serious right now. Katy’s so not ready that she flipped off when DJ Diplo planned to introduce her to his parents – over reacting, much?
Katheryn Elizabeth “Katy” Hudson was born in October 25, 1984 and grew up with parents who were pastors in Santa Barbara, California. When she decided to switch from gospel singing to pop music, she changed her name to Katy Perry and became the mega artist of our generation. It was in the year 2007 when she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records and later on released her chart-topping single “I Kissed A Girl.” She definitely shredded her conservative facade for a much daring artistic personality that we all love!
Perry has received multiple awards and nomination including eleven Grammy nominations for all the head banging, and sometimes heart-wrenching songs she has both written and sung. She was Billboard’s 2012 Woman of the Year, one of Forbes’ Top Earning Women in music for three consecutive years and the only artist to spend 69 straight weeks in the top ten of the hottest 100. Katy Perry has booted every artist out of the platform after earning six quintuple-platinum certified singles in the United States. Our favorite songwriter has not only made a mark in the music industry but has also ventured deeper into her career as an effective businesswoman, philanthropist, and actress.
Though we know her to be this strong woman who lives beyond imperfections, love and the idea of “happily ever after” hasn't proven her much yet.
Katy dated the “Sons of Anarchy” actor, Johnny Lewis, before she even got to work with Capitol Records. Lewis’ death after falling from a rooftop 2 years ago left Perry shattered as it inspired her to write the songs “The One That Got Away” and “Teenage Dream.”
While “I Kissed A Girl” was on top of the charts, Katy was busy smooching Travis McCoy who she dated on-and-off for a little over a year.
After her split with the rapper, rumors had it that Katy and Josh Groban spent some time together. The latter admitted that they “might have skated on the line of dating.”
It was Russell Brand who made Katy Perry say “I do”. They married on October 2010, barely a year after they first started dating, and divorced 14 months into their marriage. It was Brand who filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple were busy minding their own careers worlds away from each other. Obviously, it was the distance that caused the first cuts in their marriage.
Months after the split, Katy Perry was rumored to date French model, Baptiste Giabiconi. Perry killed the gossip after tweeting about being single and satisfied.
It was in the first half of the year 2012 when she allegedly dated guitarist Robert Ackroyd though admitting that their relationship didn't need a label and that they were only “flirting.”
Katy Perry seriously dated John Mayer for less than 2 years. Their relationship kicked off in August 2012 and ended in February 2014 after the release of their duet “Who You Love.” We thought that she finally found her other half in John Mayer but it looks like she hasn't gotten much luck with love now, has she?
