Katy Perry To Launch Her Own Record Label

Katy Perry is in the process of launching her own record label.

Katy Perry To Launch Her Own Record Label
1
At the age of 27, Katy Perry has already sent 11 singles to the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and sold 3.7 million albums to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. She's been an actress and will soon be hitting the silver screen with the July premiere of her 3D movie, "Katy Perry: Part Of Me 3D". Now she'll add an executive title to her resume - the pop star revealed in her Hollywood Reporter cover story that she's in the process of launching her own record label. "I'm preparing for it now," Perry said of the as-yet-unnamed imprint. "And when this record label does come to fruition, I'm going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success." Once the label is formed, Perry - who has been signed to EMI's Capitol Records since 2007 - will follow in the footsteps of fellow pop superstars Madonna, who started Maverick Records under Warner Music Group in the '90s; Frank Sinatra, who founded Reprise; and Prince, who created Paisley Park Records in 1985. Perry also discussed her upbringing, divorce from comedian Russell Brand, upcoming 3D film - which she helped to finance with her own $2 million - and more in the interview. Read more here. Thanks for the report to Billboard.com.

    I'd agree with you, but that picture isn't doing anything good for her.

    She has a great body, but she doesn't have a particularly outstanding face. I'd say that Zooey Deschanel is far more beautiful than her, but that's only my 2 cents...

    It makes me sad that she does so well, since the only reason anyone gives a shit about her is because she has nice tits.

"One Direction: Fans' Mothers Want To Date Us" Too bad they all suck dick "The Wanted Stage Horror as Guitarist Is Set On Fire" Too bad it wasn't the boyband instead. "Katy Perry To Launch Her Own Record Label" Great. Fine. Now, Fuck off. Any news on the new Metallica record? You know? Actual guitar related news?
    Slow news day it is, my friend.

    See, (virtual stab vest on) I didn't mind her first album. Her second one was a pile of poo.

    She doesn't care about artists. She's gonna sign a few shitty pop "artists" who she thinks will make her a lot more money. It's just another case of people crapping on music.

    Disagree. And she has pretty eyes too.

    Good for her, she seems to really care about artists, and that's what we need in our label executives.

    I see what you're saying, but I respectfully disagree with this entire sentence.
