Review: Katy Perry- Part of Me

Posted by: on Jul 20, 2012 | No Comments

In less than four years, Californian Girl Katheryn Hudson has metamorphosised into zany Pop sensation, Katy Perry. One of the biggest stars on the planet, voted sexiest woman and getting 5 singles to number one from one album – the only other pop singer to do this was Michael Jackson – and all this at the tender age of 27. We clearly love something about this pin-up cartoon like lady.

One of the Boys was her hugely successful debut album, based around a Lolita style theme, but her second album, Teenage Dream is where she hit the big time and scored a world tour that saw her transform her stage and costumes into Candyfornia: see what she did there?

During this tour Perry opted to have cameras follow her everywhere in a warts and all documentary, covering the highs and lows of the tour and her personal life including her whirlwind romance with Russell Brand. There is also footage from family videos, Perry early on in her career and interviews with fans.

This isn’t just a glossy piece of self promotion.

The music-documentary shows Katy at her lowest ebb crying over Russell, at home, with friends and shock horror…without any make-up! eek!

I have to admit I did get a bit teary eyed too- the story of her marriage breakdown is blub-worthy and you definitely get to see a ‘normal’ side to the usually bizarre and attention seeking starlet.

Katy also claimed it was to document her hugely successful world tour and allow fans who weren’t lucky enough to get a ticket to enjoy the concert via the cinema screen – hence why you can see it in 3D – to get the full candy-fuelled effect!

Having seen it in both 2D and 3D I would suggest that if you are a die hard KatyCat who didn’t make it to the show you have to see it in 3D. The effects and details in the live show are amazing and it really feels like you are front row when watching in 3D.

You are encouraged to sing and dance along in the cinema- trust me, you will pulling shapes in your cinema seat as the pop tunes are infectious.

I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the Teenage Dream tour and it truly is an [assault]… but a good one on the senses. The costume changes, stage setup and vocals are amazing – worth seeing the film purely to see how Katy pulled off this sensational show for 2 hours each night for over a year! Phew!

A great behind the scenes look at a superstar of our times and perfect for any celeb-obsessed pop fan.

She truly is a teenage dream.
