Will Katy Perry's Very Own Record Label Be a Success?

Justin Bieber showed off his promotional chops this year by tweeting about Carly Rae Jepsen, who is now sitting comfortably at the top of the charts. But Katy Perry fancies herself a star-maker, too. The 27-year-old pop star is launching her own record label soon, and plans to treat her artists better than most. She's all too aware of the financial pitfalls major labels present for budding artists.

Perry told The Hollywood Reporter, "I'm preparing for it now. 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?'" Sounds like a pretty sweet business model -- if it works. Do you think Katy Perry's record label will be a success?

    Even if you hate her she will still be successful for awhile most likely. I dislike her music but she has a huge fan base and she hasn't done anything wacky unlike Nicki Minaj who killed her career the moment she released stupid hoe. She will probably be forgotten one day but not now.

    I am so tired of these oridnary black girls thinkin' they're cute and Raise a Billion Perverts like them...they become stars because most of your culture knows only having babies from 10 different men .....the jealousy and envy is just spewing out of a no nothing bigot like you, huh!

    I hope you're not referring to me, because I'm mixed with White, Black and Cherokee Indian. And, I despise ignorant black people just as much as anyone. I don't like people who are ignorant and don't educate themselves.
    That's true with many races.
    I mentioned lilly white girls, cause I'm tired of seeing their boney asses parading around like they're cute, when there are 13 year old black girls with real shapes that get overlooked in the beauty department.
    Mainly because perverts want something boney that looks like a 5 year old they can hump on. That's what I meant. That's why models are so boney
    you got all those perverts droolin'. That's all.
    And, no I'm not sayin pervs need to target black girls with shapes,
    I'm saying that these ladies who are models are usually over 19, yet
    they still look like they have NOT developed, and
    our black women have BEAUTIFUL shapes, EVEN from a Young age;
    which look 20 times better than those Ugly, Boney models.

    She looks like Wilma Flintstone! Where's Barney Rubble?

  • BeerJingle waterny... 2012/06/29 02:12:21
    No she's not
  • Bellatrix232 2012/06/25 14:34:39
    I think it'll be a huge success because she really knows how to do her job. She's nothing special as a singer (i've seen some of her performances that were... well... hilarious), and still, she makes tons of money and the whole planet knows who she is.
  • jas.jay.9 2012/06/25 10:43:32
    shes been in the industry and knows how it works so im sure she'll be gr8 plus shes a huge success

    Yes, I am single again. Why? Because life is too short to live with anyone that does not value or appreciate a good thing. No time for regrets. Every experience good or bad has made me the strong woman I am today. Time to move on.I am proud of all that I have accomplished.I seek to find the gentle man that will share the rest of my heart and love with. I also have uploaded my pics and imformation on 【S_e_e_K_T-a_l_l.】un​​​der the username of【 Xtratallgirl】...I don't look for an adventure; I would like to meet a true man. The important thing is that we have understanding, respect and love for each other to share together needs, wants, desires and to make our plans, hopes, dreams come true. I have a full of heart to share with the right man, .I am looking for a male partner to spend the rest of my life with.
  • Nish 2012/06/25 05:38:47
    Yes It will be a Success
  • lhondyn 2012/06/25 05:30:01
    I love Katy. She's so inpirational and comfortable with herself. Of coarse her record label will be a success

    probably will be
  • Resp 2012/06/25 03:32:01 (edited)
    Not if she continues to wear that ridiculous purple hair or is that a disease?
  • Lsbrill... Resp 2012/06/25 17:02:58
    I like the purple hair, and the dress too. I can say that is one thing I do like about her. I like how her stylist dresses her.

    If she is writing her own music, she is doomed...
  • Jack 2012/06/25 00:34:35
    I hope not, but it probably will be. It just shows that any talentless girl who is fairly hot can make lots of money if she's willing to sing about lesbianism!

    But I'm also a cynic. I hope it does work out for her.
  • Jaguar 2012/06/24 23:00:52
    It seems like, nowadays, the money for artists and bands isn't from getting signed... It's gone back to the days where bands had to tour to make the money and thus create their own labels so they have the power to pretty much do everything themselves and not bow down to some executive type who's getting rich off the guys going out there and grafting for it.
    My partner is in a band, so I know just how much hard work goes into making it successful.
  • teckila 2012/06/24 19:46:35
    But that doesnt' mean she is a good actress!
  • tatilee(: 2012/06/24 17:43:22
    I don't know much about the music business to know for sure but Katy Perry is extremely successful and definitely knows how to reach to the public. If i was an artist, i would definitely want to be on this record label.
  • Rubyking 2012/06/24 16:52:54
    she's too ugly
  • pruthvichauhan257 2012/06/24 15:00:58

    Good luck to her!
  • Mikayla 2012/06/24 07:07:42
    Why wouldn't it be?
  • Jdogg 2012/06/24 04:29:45
    She's learning how this music Industry is and using that to her advantage here, If it's as good as she makes it to be, She may have big name recording artist also knocking on her door,
  • JessicaLynn 2012/06/24 03:57:33
    I want it to work for her, but we will have to wait and see. I love Katy Perry's music, and I think there is potential in such an endeavor, but the best we can do is hope she is successful.
  • Jen 2012/06/24 03:51:42
    Yes, by all means she will be a hit based upon her purple hair, heavy makeup, bright nail polish and bright wardrobe, we uh, costumes. Katy Perry stands out like a sore thumb, just the thing to lure in the fans. Now don't get me wrong: I don't dislike her choice of clothes; from what little photos I've seen her in, she looks modest. I hope she goes far in her music endeavor.
  • CottonCandyCat 2012/06/24 03:36:11
    Of course! She's a magnificent singer, and since she wants to treat her artists like she wants to be treated, then she will be loved more than she is now. You know, maybe I will want to sign on her industry too! <3

    Of course, Katy is amazing. She's been successful in many areas of her career, so I don't see why this would be any different.
  • raine 2012/06/24 03:17:01
    she is anobody
  • CottonC... raine 2012/06/24 03:31:03
    You're a nobody.
  • *~The D... raine 2012/06/24 03:50:10
    *~The Doctor's Rose♥~*
    How is she a nobody?
  • CottonC... *~The D... 2012/06/24 03:55:54
    As in like you, and me are a nobody. In the celebrity/artist world, Katy is someone. I am no one in that world, neither are you, or her. So why say she's a nobody, when she is not one?
  • Jessica... CottonC... 2012/06/24 04:03:11
    People like raine are just trolling, so do not waste time on it. We all know Katy Perry is a fabulous artist and a great woman to be admired. She is very sucessful and she definitely is a somebody. So don't fret over someone like raine. Definitely not worth the time nor the effort.
  • CottonC... Jessica... 2012/06/24 04:04:23
    I know, I hate when people do that, Jess. Thanks for the reply <3.
  • *~The D... CottonC... 2012/06/24 04:05:20
    *~The Doctor's Rose♥~*
    I didn't say she is a nobody. ?? It's dumb to classify anyone as a nobody. Because we each have our own purpose in life, and we're all important.
