Musicians starting their own record labels is nothing new. Madonna and Prince have both started labels, and now Katy Perry wishes to join their ranks with her own imprint. Her label doesn’t have a name yet, but she’s already filled with a vision to help young artists and musicians make their way.
“I’m preparing for it now,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “And when this record label does come to fruition, I’m going to try and avoid the things that take away any fighting chance for an artist to have financial success. As people are coming to me with opportunities, I’m thinking, ‘How would I want to be treated?’ ”
Perry is no stranger to success. She’s credited with 11 top 10 singles in the Billboard Hot 100 and has sold 9.1 million albums. She also broke Michael Jackson’s record for most #1 singles from one album. So far, her album Teenage Dream has had six out of eight singles hit #1 on U.S. Charts. Next up is Katy Perry: Part Of Me, a 3D bio-pic concert film due in theaters July 5th.
