Editorial Reviews

More of a music documentary than a concert video, Katy Perry: Part of Me chronicles Perry's year-long California Dreams World Tour in 2011 with an abundance of personal interviews, film of Perry interacting with her fans, and concert footage from California and around the globe. Absolutely bursting with energy, Perry's a fascinating singer, songwriter, and performer who's faced a fair amount of adversity in her career, and whose upbringing was very different than that of most pop stars. This film plays at times almost like a video diary. Perry philosophizes about everything from growing up in a strictly Pentecostal Christian family to her fairy-tale outlook on life, costuming choices, how her own experiences and emotions influence her lyrics and music, her drive to remain true to herself, and the difficulty of sustaining a long-distance marriage with actor Russell Brand. There's also plenty of footage with Perry's costumers, makeup artists, various assistants, and friends, including actress Shannon Woodward. But some of the most interesting interviews are those with her sister Angela Hudson, who travels with show, and her mother and father regarding their commitment to accepting and supporting Perry and her career despite potential conflicts with their religious views. One discussion that's oddly omitted is any hint of why Perry changed her name. While the personal and backstage footage is heartfelt and quite intriguing, the film seemed somewhat lacking in actual concert footage, though viewers are treated to at least parts of "Firework," "California Gurls," "Part of Me," "Last Friday Night," and "Peacock." --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Made me cry! July 21, 2012
Format:DVD
Even though I love Katy Perry's music, I didn't expect to love her movie. There's a big difference between enjoying a five minute song and watching a two-hour movie. I only saw the movie because my two daughters wanted to see it.

As it turns out, I really loved the movie. Viewers get a unique glimpse not only into Katy's current pop star lifestyle and concert tour madness, but also into her struggle to get a music label in the first place as well as her efforts to hold together a failing marriage.

But the reason I really ended up loving this movie is because Katy the person (not Katy the pop star) really appears to be genuinely sweet and likeable. I loved seeing her interact with her siblings, her friends, her fans, her evangelist parents, and even her adorable grandmother. Katy's "realness" really touched my heart . . . and even watered my eyes more than once.

This is a touching movie about a charming girl!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Pied Piper of Genuineness July 13, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
"Katy Perry Part of Me" is a rare and unique glimpse into the life, childhood, upbringing, ups and down and tag along journey for the concert tour of a lifetime for Katy Perry. In the capable hands of producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, this isn't just your ordinary run-of-the-mill documentary/concert video, this is a story and a behind the scenes insight like I've never seen before.

A few things grabbed me as the movie starts with the preparation of her monster first world tour. They start with the setup for her first concert and her associating with her crew, dancers and staff before going into the opening number. She treats the people around her like gold. The people she hires to do her costumes, makeup, manage her schedule and organize her life aren't industry people. They are her friends. They were ordinary, run-of-the-mill people who Katy worked with when she was a nobody and she kept them. She loves them, and they love her and that is the nuts and bolts of "Part of Me".

Katy Perry may consider herself the `Pied Piper of Weirdness', but I would consider her the `Pied Piper of Genuineness'. It is the heart of her success, because it is exactly what took her, after years of struggle, out from under record labels that told her who she "should" be. Millions of fans, literally overnight, took to her personality of being exactly who she is and fell in love with her. She is the voice of this generation. I don't doubt that. We live in a time where traditions and expectations are blending with freedom of expression and freedom of genuineness. Katy Perry quite simply stands for being proud of who you are and being loud and proud about it. This very thing has made her a mega star.

In the Summer of 2011, Katy Perry did what only one artist had ever done before.

I went to see "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" at my local theater on July 9, 2012; 5 days after it was first released; and again in 3D format on July 18th with a close friend of mine. I knew when I went to see it that it was NOT going to be boring; even just the name Katy Perry is enough to take the dull out of my day. I've been a fan since "California Gurls" in 2010. The stuff from "One Of The Boys" I liked a little later on. What I didn't expect however was how much this film made me love her and her work A LOT more than I did before. There were A LOT of scenes and songs that touched my heart in ways I never expected. One scene was one of her meet and greets where she asks people if they want to dance on stage with her that coincided with her performance of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". If you liked it on Katy's "California Dreams" tour, you'll love it here too.
Another was what I call the "Hey Jude" scene, when Katy talked about how she handled her divorce from Russell Brand. I can't remember exactly what she said, although I knew what the subject matter was. COME ON! It's been 2 months since I last saw it. A piano version of "Hey Jude" played in the background during her interview. Then came the cruncher; her MusicCares rehearsal of that same song. That made my heart go "KNOCK ME OUT! KNOCK ME OUT!!"
All in all, I knew I was gonna see something truly cool, but I never thought it would be THIS cool! Maybe it's just me. I hope not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining October 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I kind of wish I didn't see this. Before I did I was completely indifferent to Katy Perry. I didn't like her or hate her. I just didn't care either way. Then one day I sat down and watched this after hearing some rave reviews about it from critics and I fell in love with her. After watching this I discovered things about this Katy Perry character I didn't know anything about. She was likable and nice. There wasn't a diva bone in her body. I sort of equate female pop stars to being a little full of themselves as if they're curing cancer or something. I realized that Katy Perry is a hardworking girl who loves to entertain, sing and play the guitar. There was some poignant moving moments in this as she allows the cameras to continue filming even when she's visibly heartbroken over the problems with her relationship at the time with Russell Brand. I also didn't know that she writes her own lyrics and that they are from her personal experiences. That made me like her even more that she allows herself to be cracked open in her work. I learned that she didn't have it all handed to her and had to fight to create a career. Sure this is a little cotton candy and bubble gum-ish, but its done so well that you find yourself being uplifted. I'm embarrassed to say that I loved this and became a fan of Katy Perry by the end of this. But hey if she can be that cracked open in her lyrics, I think I can be just as cracked open to admit that I like Katy Perry! Ended up buying this DVD after watching it and of course then ended up buying two of her CD's since I didn't own anything Katy Perry related. "Teenage Dream" and "Prism". It's a good thing she made this movie, otherwise I probably never would've given her a chance. I'm not particularly a big pop music fan, but it seems like she's one of the better ones out there.
