If you are wondering, how old is Katy Perry, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, more widely known as the singer, songwriter, and TV personality Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara. This makes the singer currently 35 years old, and 8 years younger than her fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom.
The internationally famous pop singer who was raised by strict born-again Christian ministers who forbidden any nonreligious music in their house, has been known for going from her early gospel music influences to full-on global danceable pop rock tunes.
Perry is also recognized for being a celebrity who has been aging gracefully. How does Katy Perry handle the aging process as a woman who is a public figure?
Katy Perry’s anti-aging secrets have been publicly shared, such as when she spoke about her health and fitness regimen during an interview for Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery on Nova 106.9. Katy Perry revealed:
“I’m kind of into those type of things, like health and healing places and self-betterment places…Especially as you get older and you have longer hangovers, you realize the cells in my body are dying. I did this thing called Panca Karma, it’s basically Ayurvedic eating and cleansing; you do lots of enemas…You definitely feel more energy, it basically like gets all the c**p out of you, every pun intended.”
Perry has talked about how her husband-to-be Orlando Bloom followed similar methods:
“There are ancient ways to heal yourself besides just taking a pill, which is something I always love to investigate…Orlando is very all about that kind of new age of living; for instance, today we are actually on a little bit of a health kick because we ate so many croissants when we were on vacation.”
Eating fruit, apple cider vinegar, sometimes vegan meals is also part of her dietary process.
Katy Perry the Mother
Katy Perry’s grandmother, Ann Pearl Hudson, had a front row seat during many of the pop star’s life-changing moments. She brought her grandmother to the Grammys, Billboard Music Awards, and, even to the movie premiere of “The Smurfs 2.”
So, when it became time for Katy Perry to be a mother herself, she made sure to share her pregnancy news with her grandmother before her elder relative’s death at age 99. In an Instagram post, Perry shared a heart-warming video of the exact moment when she told her grandmother that she and her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, are expecting their first child.
In the social media video, Katy Perry expressed the new responsibility in her life with her grandmother by saying:
“I just wanted to tell you I know you’re not feeling well, but I wanted to share some exciting news with you…You remember me, Katy? I’m gonna tell you that I’m gonna have a baby.”
With Katy Perry’s grandmother living to be one-year shy of a century, the pop singer must have some good genes in her family tree, and a long lifespan to potentially look forward to.
The 35-year-old Katy Perry is said to have a net worth in the ballpark of $330 million and has been one of the highest paid entertainers in the entire world for over a decade. Some years are better than others, but even her lesser earning years are much more than the average human being could ever accumulate over the course of their entire life.
Katy Perry has had years when she has earned over $50 million between her music, television gigs, investments, and businesses. She has actually had a particularly lucrative year before when she roped in over $100 million in one fiscal year.
Katy Perry signed on to be a judge on ABC’s “American Idol” In March 2018. Her salary in the first season was a whopping $15 million. But by the time the 2019 season rolled around, Katy’s American Idol salary was expanded through the roof with a salary of $25 million.
Money is also pouring into her bank accounts via business ventures such as her multiple fragrances: Purr (2010) and Meow! (2011), Killer Queen (2013), and Mad Potion (2015). Perry invested in Popchips and became their spokesperson. She got involved in the world of gaming by launching her mobile app game “Katy Perry Pop” through Glu Mobile.
Keeping Her Skin Looking Healthy
Katy Perry has chosen to opt into a few cosmetic treatments. In 2018, rumors were swirling that the then 33-year-old Perry had gotten plastic surgery on her face. But Perry put a stop to this inaccurate gossip by telling Refinery29:
“I haven’t had any…I’ve done lasers and got [filler] injections under my eyes for the hollowing—which I’d recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles—but all of my assets are real. People tend to think they are fake, but it doesn’t really matter…We’re getting away from that negative stigma about physical alterations. Of course, always be your authentic self—but if someone wants a nose job that makes them feel better, and they love their profile more because of it, it’s like ‘Go ahead!’ Do whatever makes you feel better about yourself. Stay in therapy, but get it, girl.”
As a practicing yogi who engages in transcendental meditation, Katy Perry believes that good skin comes from within and prioritizes her health for the betterment of her skin complexion. She discussed this topic with Refinery29:
“I love food, and sometimes if I’m in a bad mood, all I’ll want is the classic ice cream from McDonalds that tastes the same no matter what country you’re in…But that quick dopamine hit that makes you feel good for one second turns on you in the long run. In the past year, I’ve eaten better than I have ever eaten—less fast food, less sugar—and the sustainability of my body is so much better. My face just glows.”
Through cosmetic approaches, dietary eating habits, as well as yoga and meditation, Katy Perry is clearly strategizing to keep her youthful exterior expression going on as long as possible.
