Katy Perry on Carson Daly Tonight, New Album in June

L.A.-based singer/songwriter Katy Perry is set to become “one of the breakout stars of the summer” when Capitol Records releases her debut album, One of the Boys, on June 17th. Perry will also join the traveling rock circus that is the 2008 Vans Warped Tour, for the entire trek this summer. Tonight she’ll be performing the catchy-as-all-hell “Ur So Gay” on “Last Call with Carson Daly.”

One of the Boys is a sharp and witty pop-rock gem filled with candid tales of neurotic ex-boyfriends (“Hot N Cold,” “Ur So Gay”, “Mannequin”), crazy road trips with friends (“Waking Up in Vegas”), and figuring out who you are along the way (first single “I Kissed A Girl,” “Fingerprints”). While the album displays Perry’s feisty, girl-power swagger, it also reveals her more vulnerable side on such regretful ballads as “Lost,” “I’m Still Breathing,” and “Thinking of You.”

“I think people can appreciate a songwriter who shows different sides, and this album has many different colors,” Perry says. “I can write my share of angry break-up songs but I wanted to balance it out with fun, summertime songs. But there are also sad songs about loss and making the wrong decisions. It’s been blood, sweat, and tears making this record. I’ve put everything into it and I feel like it’s my baby. When people listen to it, I hope they will understand where I’m coming from as a person.”

“Warped is going to be grueling and hot, but I’m ready to survive it — even without showers,” Perry says. “Gwen Stefani did the tour back in 2000 with No Doubt and she looked fabulous hopping around on stage in her little polka-dotted dresses. You can find YouTube clips of her up there and all the girls in the audience are going nuts. I’m am so channeling that.”

Katy Perry seriously fucking rocks. She’s a she writes clever songs, sings beautifully and is a total knockout (did you see the picture?!) — we’re betting Ms. Perry is set to take over the world.

Upcoming Live Shows:
Los Angeles, CA – April 11 @ Key Club (Vans Warped Tour Kick-Off Party)
New York, NY – April 24 @ Mercury Lounge
all across the US – all summer long – Vans Warped Tour
