Documentary
Katy Perry is one of the best things to happen to pop music in a long time. However, does her so-far short career deserve such an in-depth documentary … and does it also need to be in 3-D? That’s a giant “Hell no” on both counts, but these two facts don’t make Katy Perry: Part of Me any less fun and engrossing. The film follows Perry on her 2011 California Dreams tour, and features interviews with the starlet, her family and friends. The doc charts the singer’s upbringing as the child of a pair of Christian ministers, her ups and downs in eventually getting her singing career off the ground, and her marriage to (and eventual split from) comedian Russell Brand. She is extremely thankful for her career, and it’s confirmed through the graciousness she shows to her fans. The amount of effort she puts into her career is quite apparent, and Perry is refreshingly candid in her interviews. It’s a joy to see a celebrity so willing to be open, real and truly thankful for such a blessed career, even when it comes to the extremely painful parts of her life.
