Katy Perry plans to have her own record label

Katy Perry's admitted that her breakup with ex-hubby Russell Brand was so devastating there were times she struggled to hold it together professionally.

In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the pop phenomenon said that when her relationship to the British actor/comedian really hit the skids, she had to stop herself from breaking down onstage.

"What was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eye sockets and not my false lashes just as I'm about to go up on that ramp and sing 'Teenage Dream,' " Perry said of that period, which was captured in a pivotal scene in her upcoming concert movie, “Katy Perry: Part of Me.”

"I had to smack myself across the face and say, 'These problems are my problems, they are not my audience's problems - learn to separate that.'"

That work ethic has made Perry into one of the wealthiest singers around: according to THR, she made more than $44 million last year courtesy of her best-selling album, movie projects and sold-out tour. According to Billboard BoxScore, her “California Dreams” trek came in just behind the Eagles (and ahead of Lil' Wayne) as one of the most profitable of 2011.

And look for Perry’s pockets to deepen even more due to the award-winning singer/songwriter’s plans to launch her very own record label.

"I'm preparing for it now," she told THR about her untitled pending imprint. "And when this record label does come to fruition, I'm going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success. As people are coming to me with opportunities, I'm thinking, 'How would I want to be treated?' "

“Katy Perry: Part of Me" is out on July 5.

    every artist will have haters(most of them are just jealous or simply immature..). and you know why they are successed? cause they don't let those haters get into their minds, and they keep working as hard as possible to live their dreams,so that's why katy is so famous. cause she work her butt off to reach her goal. and you should too instead of hating those celebrities, why don't you do the same?work hard to fulfill your dreams~

    California girls.....they are so phenomenal. A person from California may win American Idol sometime by the twentieth season. The state of California has immense musical talent and no person from California has won American Idol. That is an interesting scenario as North Carolina has two winners and ten of the eleven winners were from southern states (i.e. the only exception was Rubben Studdard, who was from Illinois).

    In today's environment a "label" means little to nothing. Fairly soon all artists will rely almost exclusively on social media to get their new music out. Back in the old days, it mattered what label you were on, now, today's youth don't even know the names of any of the surviving labels.

    Ah, the drama... another "created" star by the music and entertainment execs who found the face and the figure to go along with a mediocre (but hey, that's what audio tuning is for) voice – and the dollars flood in from the kids who think she's a talent. Please don't compare her to the Beatles – really? I could not even comprehend how this tart and music legends like Lennon could ever be in the same sentence. She'll get her record label going while she gets her weekly mani-pedi and buys a designer purse for her dog – all in a day's work – you know, with that "work ethic" she's cited in the article as having. It's offensive to those of us who truly studied music and have real vocal ability.

  26. Apple Records

    Katy Perry Records? What a joke. Just to keep the facts straight, The Beatles did start Apple Records, hired all of their friends to run it, and it was a financial disaster for many years. They had a lot of free-loaders on the payroll, so maybe Katy Perry can avoid that mistake. Most people in the know recognize that it was the stress of sorting out the Apple Records mess that broke up the band, not Yoko Ono. Eventually, the Beatles reorganized Apple Records and turned it around. But it was an expensive mistake and Paul McCartney is a hell of lot smarter than most musicians, including Katy Perry. She will end up posing for Playboy in a few years, because she will blow through her money and need the payday – just like Lindsay Lohan.

    As for here desire to launch (yet another) record label, I hope she is able to wield her influence to attract A&R people with good ears who would never sign someone who belts off key.

    • Obama es un Comemierda

      In 2009, an Obama appointed deputy to Attorney General Eric Holder gave a press conference to brag about creating and expanding gun walking programs across the border into Mexico. He admitted Obama approved $10 million for this program.

      Soon afterwards, Border Patrol and local ATF agents caught the smuggler who was bringing thousands of grenades into Mexico. The prosecutors who knew of the case and were working with the creators in DC, did not allow the smuggler to be arrested/charged.

      Fast and Furious sent thousands of grenades into Mexico – killing hundreds. CBS did the reporting on the grenade smuggling. CSPAN and youtube have the 2009 fast and furious press conference.

      One grenade attack killed dozens of grandmothers who were just having a fun afternoon out at the casino. Many of our retired also enjoy an afternoon at the casino. But these Mexican grandmothers were slaughtered with grenades Obama approved to go to Mexico – without the consent or knowledge of the Mexican government.

      And you democrats argue it is racist to try and get to the bottom of this crime against humanity.

      People of low intelligence often use the words (or non word, "haters". It surely stems from the fact that people are always telling them that stuff that they believe is ridiculous and that they are stupid. Of course, both are usually true, in the extreme, but there "lights are on, but no one is home" people, much like yourself, think that using that word somehow socializes their dismay at hearing the truth. In reality, it simply identifies them as the weak minded individuals that they are.

  42. Ghostsongwriter

    Let me let you in on the dirty secret of the music industry. Well the ghostsongwriters have all the talent and write all the songs for most bands. Why else do you think there are so many one hit – one albums wonders? The labels drop them. You really think lmfao (clive davis grandsons) actually wrote those songs themselves. What about Michael J. Even depeche mode cant write since they dropped their keyboardist (who put the finishing touches on the songs that made them great).

    Artists are really just employees and really get paid about $50k a year after the labels deduct the recoup. Katy Perry probably made $200k out of the $44mil. At least she knows the game and wants to own her stuff now with a record label. I'm surprised she can get out of her contract. I suppose she made enough for her label with the $44 mill they let her go.

      If by Michael J you mean Michael Jackson, he wrote the vast majority of his songs and co-wrote almost all the rest. He arranged them, wrote music and lyrics. He made his money AND had the talent to boot. The same can't be said for a lot of today's artists. The only one I can think of with comparable creative control is Prince.

      MJ did not wrote most of his own music. He hired songwriters. He was simply smart enough to buy the writing credits because he knows where the money is.

      He was a pedophilic freak with limited raw talent, but he knew the business very well. I know a guy locally who got paid $100K to write one song for him. His name does not appear anywhere on MJ recordings. He happily took the $100K, and MJ happily turned the song into millions.

    I think she probably has over exposed herself already. She is a talented songwriter and has a pretty good voice (just look for her live acoustic stuff like KISS FM Sprint Live Lounge or MTV Unplugged on YouTube). Unfortunately, she's marketed herself in a way that she isn't really taken seriously. Plus, she can't sing pop music at all. She really needs to go back to the soft rock and folk type songs she did in the early days. They really suit her voice. It would be nice to see more talented women actually rely on their abilities rather than looks to achieve success.

    Don't start your own label. It seldom works and you will lose a fortune. Besides, she comes off as though she is incapable of balancing a checkbook, let alone running a record label.

      a checkbook? Dude, she just made a cool 40 mil in one year, she has people who have people who have people who balance her online back account (it's 2012).

      Also have you thought about getting in touch with her since you know how hard it is to run a record label from personal experience?

    Her personality is as real as her boobs. I agree, Hollywood is full of greedy labels ask the Beatles and every band since then., but excuse me, last year, 44 million not financial success? How much does one person need to achieve success? What if my daughter wanted to get on her label, wouldn't she do the same?

    Oh, you got divorced from a sham marriage?? Boo-Hoo. Weird Al learned about his parent's DEATH an hour before a concert...both PARENTS...and he went on to do a stellar show that same night. He sucked it up, being the true professional that he is, fulfilled his obligations and dealt with his grief on his own time, in his own way. Amazing man and performer. Stronger than anybody I have ever known, and the most creative person currently roaming the planet.

    Love her music. Sure hope she doesn't "Over expose" herself. Excuse my pun but we've seen the "flash in the Pan" artists and after 2-3 records they are gone.

    Divorce is tough...I think she'll get thru it just fine, tho. Luckily, there's no kids involved. I think kids suffer the most in divorce.

      omg I know! Could you imagine if they had kids? Those poor multi-millionaire babies living an international lifestyle. So terrible...
