Katy Perry is experiencing the biggest career boost of 2012 and it doesn’t just stop with her new docu-film. The 27-year-old pop star told The Hollywood Reporter that she’s planning to start her own record label!
“I’m preparing for it now,” Katy dished. “And when this record label does come to fruition, I’m going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance or an artist to have financial success. As for people are coming to me with opportunities, I’m thinking, ‘How would I want to be treated?’”
The “Wide Awake” singer has been signed with EMI (Capitol Records) since 2007, and scored 11 Top 10 singles, selling over 9.1 million albums total. Katy has always taken charge of her career and branched out of music. She appeared in “How I Met Your Mother”, “Raising Hope”, voiced a character on “The Smurfs”, and even invested $2 million of her own money to make the upcoming 3D “Katy Perry: Part of Me” film.
If Katy follows Madonna’s footsteps, her DIY record label will not only be uber successful but also pave way for future talents to come. Madonna launched her label “Maverick” in 1992 with Frederick DeMann and Veronica Dashev, and signed Alanis Morissette, Deftones and Cleopatra at one point.
Who do you think KP should sign?
