A beautiful, big dreamer

20 Jul

After more than a year, I BLOG AGAIN!  My, that was a long break.  

Am actually supposed to have a new writing project but could never get myself to start working on it, which just goes to show how different (lazier) I am from this super-workaholic-have-to-make-my-dreams-come-true-no-matter-what girl that I just saw on cable tonite.

Katy Perry.  

I’m not really a big fan.  I think she’s cute, makes catchy, fun music and definitely has a style all hers.  But after watching her movie “Katy Perry: Part of Me”, I can’t help but feel I want to be part of her.

The movie discussed her family, how she started becoming a musician and the uphill journey she had to get to where she is now, including finding love and (unfortunately) heartache along the way.

Lesson #1: You cannot be a success through only your efforts. 

I loved how she was able to be a success and still keep her individuality intact.  That publicist who took her from Columbia Records to Capitol definitely helped Katy have the career she deserved.  Good job!

Lesson #2: Talent, talent, talent

She writes songs, she plays instruments, she sings, she dances, she designs.  With the right support (and she has), she REALLY can have a career as long as Madonna’s.

Lesson #3:  Family isn’t just biological

She has her biological family and I think it’s great how some of them with her and were with her on tour, like her sister Angela aka Kathy Beth Terry (how supportive is THAT??!).  Btw, Katy, I think your younger brother is cute!

But a lot of people who were with her when she was a success were already with her when she was just starting out, trying to make a name for herself.  I think having them around her through her journey helped a lot to keep her grounded.

Lesson #4: Don’t be afraid to be a peacock

Colorful. Expressive. Beautiful.  I became a Katy fan after watching the movie.  How she used her talent, her individuality to spread joy, fun and inspiration to people all over the world is admirable.  She wasn’t afraid to show people her colors. She was ADAMANT people saw who she was.  You gotta love her for that.
