What do you remember?
« on: May 26, 2014, 03:31:47 PM »
I thought it might be fun to talk about from what we remember about Katy before she was famous...or, at least, when she was less famous (hoping this is the right board!).
I remember how you used to have to wait for days for replies on this forum, and how you could check her blog and there would be new posts.

I just remember that after "I Kissed a Girl", everyone appended "one hit wonder" to Katy's name, and people wrongly assumed she was a lesbian.

On another note, the first time I ever checked out Katy on Wikipedia (probably in early 2009), I could have sworn I read that she was born in 1977, was married, and was from Hawaii.  Did I imagine that, or did Katy's Wikipedia incorrectly page say that at one time?  If the later, was all that beleived to be true about Katy at one time, or was it that I just so happened to hit that page when somebody either vandalized it or posted good faith but incorrect information?

I remember I thought Katy was British, and I remember the first Thinking Of You music video. I also remember Katy's old myspace and scrolling through it for hours haha

I remember checking if she updated her tumblr and getting freaked out every time I passed that watermelon face person she posted!

Most likely vandalized; happens more often than you'd think.

Was that the video that was shot for the unreleased album?  Or was that the one that she randomly shot with friends that was never intended to be posted online?

Could be.  Or maybe I imagined it.  The other info on the page at the time seemed accurate.

I remember during OOTB when I was about 12 and Katy was more 'the woman who sings the song about kissing girls' rather than 'KATY PERRY', I felt like I was the only big fan of Katy for miles...

this is called a signature. doesn't seem to do much but I think it secretly has a superpower it uses when I'm not looking. just a feeling.

i remember back in the myspace days seeing IKAG on one of my friends' pages..and always thinking "damn that katy perry has some major guts!" haha cuz i figured that song was a bit controversial lol i personally thought it kicked a$$ haha but i knew some older people wouldnt care for it and it would get a lot of attention from the media,good and bad lol i knew it would be a song that would either jump start a career or have it go no where,SO glad it was bigger than ever though!haha

i also remember my first year of college (that same year,late 2008) i got into a friends car and she had some music playing,but i didnt recognize the song (it was WUIV)and i asked her who it was and she said it was katy as she handed me the OOTB album and i was like "ohhh!the girl who sings IKAG!" :lol: haha and i remember that particular drive was a long one and we were stuck in traffic for quite some time and we most likely listened to the whole album or at least most of it lol back then i didnt automatically become a katy cat but i did like her songs

also,later that year in december..that same friend invited me and 2 other friends to go to jingle ball with her.back then jingle ball was a lot smaller of a thing,so there were a lot less acts then they have now and they were usually brand new or not very popular artists lol and katy was on the line up!and i was also just a couple rows from the front!it was a great show..funny thing is,those all 3 of those stories (and some others)completely disappeared from my memory until i became a katy cat!idk what it was,but after becoming a katycat,all these random and basically pointless memories(at the time),came rushing back..funny how things work out ;)

I remember I kissed a girl being on the radio all the time and I used to listen to it on those like £10 crappy MP3 players haha and they said she'd be a one hit wonder.. I also remember being really shocked she was born in 1984 because I was convinced it was 1986  :lol:

I remember being 7 and sat in front of my tv and I Kissed A Girl was on, and usually when you're 7 you don't take notice of anything really, but I was literally sat there mesmerised at the tv and it was like my favourite song ever. But then, Hot n Cold came out and I remember being at this boys BBQ and it came on and me and my friend screamed so loud, and then did this cheesy dance to it. And also when I first saw the video, well even now too really, I remember thinking that she looks sooo pretty when she has the bright blue eyeshadow (I think it is?¿?) wearing the sporty-type outfit
