Day 1014 - Katy Perry

Yesterday I took Tahlia to see Katy Perry - Part of Me in 3D ....

Applause, applause, applause.

Adore, adore, adore.

I have always liked Katy Perry and her music, but now I absolutely adore her.  I  applaud her commitment, belief, persistence, spirit, and good old fashioned hard work.  If ever there was an inspiring success story, this is it. From the minute the movie started I had tears streaming down my face because I was just so bloody proud of her! (And then I cried again because my heart broke when hers did.)

So what makes Katy's story different to anyone else's? 

Well, probably nothing other than I watched it at a time when I am travelling my own journey, so to see someone else's story gives me hope, encouragement, and belief.  And the thing about Katy is she didn't waiver from her vision even when others were trying to mould her in a different shape.  She stayed true to herself the whole way through which has allowed her to really connect with her audience and create authenticity for her fans. She knows what her mission is and regardless of the crossroads, the challenges and the soaring heights, she doesn't deter from that mission. That in itself is another life lesson.  And when she and Russell broke up and she still had to perform in the depths of dispair ... crying her eyes out only seconds before getting on stage .... her courage and commitment to the fans showed the full extent of her dedication.

Katy's wish for every performance is that people leave her show with a heart full of hope and happiness.  That's exactly how I left the movie theatre.  Wouldn't it be great if that was everyone's wish!

So yeah, I loved the Katy Perry movie.  I applaud and adore her energy and strength. Oh, and the soundtrack was brilliant and the 3D bit was pretty cool too.  I also enjoyed seeing her bare-faced and doing little home movies of her journey LONG before she became famous.  I loved how she was documenting her travels right back when she was 17 and 18 and just setting out. Proving that, now aged 27, she is no overnight success.  Hers has been hard earned.

Yes Katy, you're a firework!  


  1. I haven't seen it yet, but I want to!

  2. You have made me want to go and see it! Which is amazing as I actually cringed when I saw it listed at the cinema...maybe in two weeks on my next kid free day :)

  3. It really hit a chord with me (excuse the pun).


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
