Trivia

  • She is parodied as "Catty Perry" in the 2016 Disney animated feature film, Zootopia, while Judy Hopps is scrolling down the list of artists on her music player. This also references Perry's interest of cats, since she has two named Kitty Purry and Monkey, and has used cat costumes during her California Dreams Tour and The Prismatic World Tour.
  • She changed her surname from Hudson to Perry to avoid confusion with actress Kate Hudson.
