Katy Perry ‘Part of Me’ 3D Movie Review

Katy Perry ‘Part of Me’ 3D is an amazing visual extravaganza that provides viewers with a ‘real’ look into the life of Katy Perry, including the emotional rawness of her divorce, the intensity of her working life, and the laughs and giggles that go on behind the scenes of her tour.

‘Part of Me’ follows Katy Perry on her 124-city California Dreams Tour and features her performing all of her hit songs throughout the world, while also chronicling all of the ups and downs that go on in her life during this time period. We literally get to see her concert performances, while also seeing what goes on behind the scenes, and within her personal life. The movie ticket is well worth the price since you not only get to see the movie, but also Katy Perry’s amazing concert performances, dances, and outfit changes.

We see a truly personal side of Katy Perry as we get to meet her entire staff and family in the movie, including her adorable grandmother. We learn about how Katy Perry’s family practices Pentecostal Christianity, and Katy reports that, “being a kid consisted of going to a lot of Church activities.” Lucky Charms cereal was never allowed in her childhood since “Luck” was associated with “Lucifer.” We see video of Katy, as a child, singing religious songs. Katy Perry recalls a time when a man came up to her when she was five year old and told her, “you’re going to sing.”

As a child and teenager Katy was only allowed sing the gospel. She recalls that the first time she listened to something outside of her typical religious music was when she went to a friend’s home and listened to Alanis Morissette, “You Oughta Know.” She recalls that moment vividly, and remarks that she truly appreciated the fact that Alanis could be completely honest with her lyrics.

What is truly impressive about Katy Perry’s ‘Part of Me’ is the fact that her concert performances are all tied in with the story line of the documentary. One of the first song’s featured in the movie was “The Box” in which she sings, “I started living outside of the box. . . ‘Cause I’m not gonna be anybody that I’m not.”Katy Perry

Katy Perry was originally signed with Def Jam, dropped, and then picked up by Columbia. Columbia records tried to mold her into what they thought she should be. They suggested she be an Avril Lavigne or an Ashlee Simpson, and we see her trying to replicate these artists.

Katy says she just wants to be “the first Katy Perry.” Columbia clearly doesn’t understand her and wants to mold her. A Columbia exec discusses this whole fiasco, and tells us that she literally left Columbia with Katy Perry’s files in her hand as she knew that the company was holding her “hostage.”

The Columbia Records exec did an amazing thing by pushing Katy Perry on to bigger and better things with Capitol Records. Capitol let Katy Perry be exactly who she wanted to be. They let her pick her songs, her tone, and her singles.

We see Katy Perry performing “Part Of Me” and it is very clear that nobody could take away from her what she really was, and what she really symbolizes.

In her performance art on stage she is held onto by bungee cords, and is trying to break away from the powers that be. She wants to be her true self, and not forced into a role that others tell her to be. She wants to be true and authentic.

Katy then goes into a discussion about her romantic relationship with Russell. She talks about how she first met Russell Brand on the set of “Take Him To The Greek.” Russell was really into her, and she told him, “take me to dinner, you gotta wine and dine me.” They had a two and a half hour conversation over dinner on their first date.

Katy Perry then performs her song, “Extraterrestrial,” which was truly made to describe her uplifted feelings at the beginning of the relationship. She felt “transcendental” and wanted to “walk on your wavelength.”

Katy Perry is at an all-time high. She is in a wonderful relationship and has five songs that end up on the No. 1 singles list. She has done what the Beatles and Elvis were unable to do.

In ‘Part of Me’ we are able to see the incredible enthusiasm that Katy Perry has for all of her fans, and the love that her fans exude. Her fans come from all countries, all ethnicities, and all ages. They are in absolute love with Katy Perry, and Katy Perry is in love with all of her fans.

Katy PerryAs much as Katy Perry tries to keep her relationship with Russell Brand alive, we watch as the two of them go separate ways. The emotions are raw, and we see Katy break down completely before she has to perform in front of an audience in Brazil. You can’t help but feeling hurt for her as she has to go on stage, but is completely broken down. We see that she has been truly running herself ragged trying to make her relationship and tour both run smoothly at the same time.

It’s a little bittersweet when Katy has to help her sister, Angela, pick out a wedding dress after the divorce is announced. Katy is truly a trooper and is behind her sister 100%. Katy states, “I feel like I’ve got a second chance at a brilliant life.”

We then move into one of Katy Perry’s most powerful songs, “Firework.” We watch as the PS-22 Kids Choir sings their moving rendition of the song. Her fans speak and state that they, “love the fact that her lyrics are from life experiences.”

Katy Perry ‘Part of Me’ is an impressive movie, and gives you a deep, inside look into her life. Not only do you get a concert experience, but you also get a well-crafted movie. You see that Katy Perry is an inspiring and authentic woman who loves her fans. She truly wants the best for each and every person in her life. “You don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams, because nobody relates to being perfect.”
