Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager.
Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations and she subsequently began working with producers Glen Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Max Martin.
After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.
Katy Perry is the latest artist to sell her music rights. The singer has sold the rights to Litmus Music — which is co-founded by former Capitol Records president Dan McCarroll — for a whopping $225 million USD.
The company — that launched last summer — announced the news on Monday, Variety reported. Perry’s stakes in master recordings and publishing rights for her five albums — One of the Boys , Teenage Dream , Prism , Witness  and Smile  — are included in the deal.
Universal Music Group continues to own the masters to the releases.
