As I have said many times before, there is something about Katy's voice that has a calming effect on me when I am stressed.  What songs of hers do you like to listen to when you are stressed, in order to calm down?  There are at least 3 categories of her songs that could possibly have a calming effect:

Ballads, where her soft and soothing voice can calm you down (such as, By the Grace of God, Unconditionally)

Fun songs, that put you in a good mood by helping you forget your troubles (such as California Gurls, This is How We Do)

Inspirational songs, where the message of the song is what inspires you and puts you in a good mood (such as Firework, Roar, By the Grace of God)

What do others think?

When I'm stressed, it would be a mix of fun and inspirational songs.  My go to's are Part of Me, Teenage Dream, and Firework.

Just out of curiosity, is there something about the lyrics that you like, or is it the fun arrangement that melts aways your stress?

When I'm angry, I listen to Circle the Drain, Choose Your Battles, etc.

When I'm sad, I listen to Lost, Thinking Of You, The One That Got Away, etc.

I want to let it all out instead of sucking it up.

Do others besides me find that Katy's voice has a calming effect, regardless of the song?

Generally I'd call Katy's voice inspirational (to use one of her terms) rather than calming which however doesn't exclude calming; some of the songs which would have that calming effect on me are perhaps particularly on Prism, like Legendary Lovers, or This Moment.
What can especially make me forget about stress is going through one of the songs I sing myself at home and then listen to it again, getting aware of any mistakes I just made and making a mental note of them, perhaps play the notes of the vocals on the guitar to memorise them for next time.
Other than songs: I take my iPad to bed with me, chose a long interview in which Katy does most of the talking, and go to sleep that way.

So in other words, you are saying that you find her speaking voice to be soothing, which I definitely agree with.  She has a very soft, sweet, and pleasant speaking voice, much like her singing voice.  Which long interviews with mostly her talking are you thinking of?

I know that many others do not feel the same as I do about Katy's voice.  What do people not like about it?

I find her 'fun' songs the best for stressful moments. I Kissed A Girl, Waking Up in Vegas, One of the Boys, This Is How We Do to name a few. And depending on how stressful, sometimes the empowering ones like Firework and Roar
