Katy Perry

katy-perry

Katheryn Elizabeth “Katy” Hudson (born October 25, 1984), better known by her stage name Katy Perry, is an American recording artist, businesswoman, philanthropist, and actress. She was born near Santa Barbara, California and primarily grew up there before moving to Los Angeles. Having had limited exposure to mainstream pop music in her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teen and released her debut studio album, Katy Hudson (2001). She later recorded a collaborative album with The Matrix and a solo album she worked on with Glen Ballard, the latter of which was never released.

In April 2007, Katy Perry signed a recording contract with Capitol Records. She rose to prominence with the release of her single “I Kissed a Girl” followed by her second album, One of the Boys (2008), which is predominantly pop rock. Perry’s third record, Teenage Dream (2010), was preceded by the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping singles “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream”, and later produced the number-one singles “Firework”, “E.T.”, and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”. Teenage Dream became the first album recorded by a female artist in history to produce five number-one hits, and the second album overall after Michael Jackson’s Bad (1987).

Her fourth album, Prism (2013), was preceded by the number-one single “Roar”. The album was originally planned to be “darker” than Perry’s previous material, but ultimately became an album influenced by Swedish dance music and focusing heavily on self-empowerment. The album later produced the number-one single “Dark Horse”. In late July 2011, she made her film debut voicing Smurfette in The Smurfs. In early July 2012, she released her 3D autobiographical documentary film, Katy Perry: Part of Me, which concentrated on her life as a touring artist and the breakdown of her one-year marriage to English actor/comedian Russell Brand.

As of November 2013, Perry has sold more than 11 million albums and 81 million singles worldwide and her singles are some of the best-selling worldwide, and she currently holds the record for most 5x platinum singles in the United States, with 5 of her singles reaching the achievement.

Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal

michael_jackson

Smooth_Criminal“Smooth Criminal” is a song written by Michael Jackson and co-produced with Quincy Jones and it is the seventh single from Michael Jackson’s 1987 “Bad” album. The song contains a fast-paced beat intertwined with Jackson’s lyrics about a woman named Annie, who has been attacked in her apartment by a “smooth” assailant. It was released as a single on October 21, 1987, and peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was adapted into a short film which was the centerpiece of the 1988 film “Moonwalker” starring Michael Jackson and Joe Pesci in the lead roles. The single has sold over 7.5 million copies.

Jackson originally wanted to make the short film in the western genre, but later decided to change it to a 1930s nightclub style. Film was shot between mid-February and April 1987. The video for “Smooth Criminal” is the first time Jackson unveiled his anti-gravity lean in which the performer has both feet planted on the floor and leans forward close to a 45 degree angle, creating the illusion that the performer is defying gravity.

SMOOTH CRIMINAL

smooth1As he came into the window
It was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down, it was her doom

Annie, are you ok?
So, Annie are you ok
Are you ok, Annie?
Annie, are you ok?
So, Annie are you ok
Are you ok, Annie?

(Annie are you ok?)
(Will you tell us that you’re ok?)

Mouth to mouth resuscitation
Sounding heartbeats – intimidations
