She’s not the first to do this, but I like that Katy Perry is reminding her fans that she’s a real person just like anyone else. There’s so much genius marketing and branding that backs the business of an artist. People who are deemed celebrities are just like us.
“Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which debuts in 3D on Thursday, is anything but standard fare. Most performers wouldn’t dare show fans what they look like first thing in the morning without make-up, or worse, doubled over bawling backstage in costume. But Perry insisted that everyone see.
“I’m OK with showing what’s behind the curtain,” Perry, 27, told Reuters in a recent interview. “I’m OK with showing that side of me because it helps people relate (to me) better and think of me as a human being.”http://m.yahoo.com/w/legobpengine/news/pop-singer-katy-perry-fearless-warts-film-portrayal-195416762.html?.b=music&.ts=1341447121&.intl=US&.lang=en
