Katy Perry to star in new comic book

NEW YORK, June 6 Thu Jun 7, 2012 3:56am IST

NEW YORK, June 6 (Reuters) - U.S. pop star Katy Perry will become the latest celebrity to be depicted in the biography comic book "Fame" series, publisher Bluewater Productions said on We dnesday.

The 27-year-old's life shown in "Fame: Katy Perry" has her moving from a Californian churchgoing upbringing under her Christian parents to bouncing around several music labels in Los Angeles until striking a deal that landed her first big hits, "I Kissed A Girl," and "Hot n Cold."

Perry, who has delved into colorful, fantasy-filled recreations of herself in music videos not unlike a comic book character, will also be the subject of a 3-D concert documentary due for release next month.

Her marriage to actor and comedian Russell Brand ended late last year. (Reporting by Christine Kearney; Editing by Bob Tourtellotte and Dale Hudson)
