Katy Perry is the late 2000s version of the sassy pop-rocker wielding girl power like an Uzi. Blending elements of Alanis Morissette, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, Perry's 2008 debut, ONE OF THE BOYS, bashes metrosexuals ("Ur So Gay"), flaunts lesbian experimentation ("I Kissed a Girl"), and celebrates spontaneous road trips ("Waking Up in Vegas"). Thanks to a cadre of top-shelf producers, including Desmond Child, Dave Stewart, and Glen Ballard (who also produced Morissette), ONE OF THE BOYS glitters like spun cotton candy, but it's Perry's bold, topical songs and in-your-face attitude that help the album pack a punch.

Rough like a Boy, and Dramatized like a Girl
Pros: It has wonderfuul album artwork, and crazy lyrics that anyone will enjoy.
Cons: There aren't any really. Some of the songs move to slow I think.
I think this is a very versatile album that anyone would enjoy. No one should only judge based on I Kissed A Girl, because the album is better than that Read More at Epinions.com

I Expected to Hate It, But I Liked it Instead -- This is *Good* Pop!!
Pros: Half of these songs are very good indeed.
Cons: There's way too much mimicry when she should just write from her heart.
I was surprisingly delighted by this pop album, which had put America in a stir. But you also have to notice that very few of these people mention the *music*. Read More at Epinions.com

Katy Perry Puts Her Own Personal Style, and Fun Personality, into her award winning CD
Pros: Songs for at least a teen crowd, some adult language, and some iffy ideas.
