Katy Perry Teen Christian Singer


Long before Katy Perry was a cleavage-baring, “Teenage Dream” singing  pop star, she was a teen Christian singer — and now video has emerged of her more innocent days.


Videographer Jim Standridge shot more than 90 minutes of Perry during her first tour in 2001 — when she was 16 — and edited it down to a 13-minute clip, which has just hit the Internet.

In the footage, Perry talks about the Christian artists she likes, how she has to put on a ton of makeup because she’s a “pizza face,” and how she’s in ninth grade (for the second time).

There’s also a lot of video of Perry doing her hair (over and over), goofing off with fans, and performing.

Perry also talks about being just a “little kid from California who plays the guitar and sings,” her fear of death, and how she both misses and hates her parents.

Check out the video below of a young Perry, and tell us what you think.
