Katy Perry Net Worth

Katy Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge who has a net worth of $330 Million. Katy Perry is one of the highest paid entertainers in the world, and has been for over a decade. Every year between 2009 and 2014, Katy Perry earned between $30 and $50 million from album sales, merchandise, touring and endorsements. Between June 2014 and June 2015, she earned an estimated $135 million (before taxes, agents, lawyers and lifestyle expenses). Between June 2018 and June 2019, she earned $60 million. Between June 2019 and June 2020 she earned $40 million, of which $25 million came from hosting American Idol.

After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful.

She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations and she subsequently began working with producers Glen Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Max Martin. After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.

Perry rose to fame in 2008 with her second album, One of the Boys, a pop rock record containing the controversial U.S number one song “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot n Cold”. Three subsequent albums have topped the U.S. Billboard 200. The disco-influenced Teenage Dream (2010) spawned five chart topping U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles–”California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, “E.T.”, and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” — a record tying her with Michael Jackson’s Bad. Its follow-up record Prism (2013) was inspired by her divorce and incorporates pop and dance along with themes of self-reflection, everyday life, and relationships.

With the music videos for its chart-topping songs “Roar” and “Dark Horse”, Perry became the first artist to have multiple videos reach one billion views on Vevo. 2017’s electropop Witness featured a political subtext and a theme of liberation. The album’s lead single “Chained to the Rhythm” broke Spotify’s record at the time for most first-day streams for a song by a female artist. Her sixth studio album Smile followed in 2020.

Perry has nine U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number one singles and has received various awards, including four Guinness World Records, five Billboard Music Awards, five American Music Awards, a Brit Award, and a Juno Award. She has been included in the annual Forbes lists of highest-earning women in music from 2011 to 2019.

Perry is one of the world’s best-selling music artists, having sold over 18 million albums and 125 million singles worldwide. In film, she released an autobiographical documentary titled Katy Perry: Part of Me in 2012, and voiced Smurfette in the 2011 film The Smurfs and its sequel in 2013. Her Super Bowl XLIX halftime show performance is the most-watched in history. Perry also began serving as a judge on American Idol in 2018.

Lil Yachty Net Worth

 Lil Yachty is an American hip hop recording artist who has a net worth of $8 million. He first gained recognition on the internet in 2015 for his singles “One Night” and “Minnesota” from his debut EP Summer Songs. He released his debut mixtape Lil Boat in March 2016. On June 10, 2016, Yachty announced that he had signed a joint venture record deal with Quality Control Music, Capitol Records, and Motown Records.

Lil Yachty represents an evolution in the rap and hip-hop genres towards something completely new. Although many people have labeled the genre popularized by rappers like Lil Yachty as “mumble rap,” he does not see himself as such. Instead Lil Yachty has described his music as “bubblegum trap,” and he frequently uses sound bytes from sources such as cartoon theme songs and video games. Although perhaps simplistic, his music has been well-received by various critics, who describe it as “catchy” and “fun.”

Yachty has released four studio albums, beginning with Teenage Emotions in 2017. His second and third studio albums, Lil Boat 2 and Nuthin’ 2 Prove, were released in 2018, and his most recent album, Lil Boat 3, was released on May 29, 2020. All four of his albums have charted within the top 20 of the Billboard 200, with Lil Boat 2 peaking at #2. Yachty has also released several mixtapes and EPs throughout his career. Lil Yachty is best known for his features on the 2016 multi-platinum songs “Broccoli” and “ISpy”, his eccentric hairstyle, and his optimistic image. Yachty has been nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on “Broccoli”
