Katy Perry Part Of Me premiered in theaters last July 5th 2012 and it showcased one of these year’s top performer Katy Perry. In this documentary, Katy Perry’s life was brought to people and fans who adored her and looked up to her. A gospel singer in the beginning and now she is at the top of her game and is reaping the benefits of her dedication. In light with her documentary film, let’s take a look at how Katy Perry’s life was received by known critics in the movie industry:
“Katy Perry Part Of Me: A Showcase Of The Life and Rise To Fame Of Katy Perry
There is a wall around Katy Perry. In this rock-umentary, we follow the pop icon on and off the stage during her massive 2011 world tour, her first major one. At the beginning of each show during the 124 show tour, Katy is surrounded by walls as she rises up from the stage and into the sights of her screaming fans, revealing herself and her music.
Metaphorically speaking, there are even more barriers between Katy and the masses. Her shows are extravagant, showy and expensive. She is always in costume that only Madonna or Elton John would dare wear in public, with her hair changing from blue to purple to jet black, none of which match her natural color. Katy’s critics point to this as artificial – more show than substance – and her sometimes over-produced tracks seem to over-shadow her supposed talents as a singer.
But is any of this the real Katy Perry? In Katy Perry: Part of Me, we get a great deal of information on Katy Perry’s rise from her gospel roots to her climb up the pop charts, as she became (as the movie claims) the only artist (other than Michael Jackson) to land five #1 singles on the Billboard Pop Charts from the same album…a feat that was never done by The Beatles, Elvis or Madonna. The journey is a fascinating look at the backstage culture of a star and into the life and trials of a modern celebrity.
would be the first one to tell you that I was shocked at how much I liked this film. Not a big fan of Katy Perry necessarily, there is no denying that she is a voice of a generation, for good or bad. Sure, it does act as a nearly 2 hour commercial for Katy Perry herself, but it was a very enjoyable story and presentation. This “overnight sensation” actually had quite a long ride to get to the top.
The film is also very now. Throughout the film we hear from her legions of fans about how Katy Perry has inspired them to be themselves and to reach for their dreams. Many of these testimonials are lifted from YouTube clips and Twitter-feeds. There are on-screen representations of how Katy’s audience grew on first MySpace, then Facebook, and then to her over (as of this writing) 22 million followers on Twitter.”
