Any good Katy Perry fan already knows that Katy Perry isn’t really her name.
Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson was born on a Thursday…in the fall…in California. Her parents are Keith Hudson and Mary Perry (really, her name rhymed). Katy has an older sister, Angela, and a younger brother, David.
When Katy became famous she didn’t want to be confused with the other famous Hudson so she decided to use her mother’s maiden name (which worked out okay because Katy Perry doesn’t rhyme). You can look up the stories about this family lots of places online.
What you probably haven’t heard before are the stories of her other relatives…her grandparents…her great-grandparents…and her great-great-grandparents. You might be related to Mrs. Russell Brand and not even know it. How cool would that be?
Do you know your own family history? If not, call your grandma or ask your mom if you have any of these last names anywhere in your family tree – Perry, Vilsack, Denis, Brace, Blank or Craig. And, that’s just Katy’s mom’s side of the family.
