Katy Perry is the late 2000s version of the sassy pop-rocker wielding girl power like an Uzi. Blending elements of Alanis Morissette, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, Perry's 2008 debut, ONE OF THE BOYS, bashes metrosexuals 'Ur So Gay', flaunts ... lesbian experimentation "I Kissed a Girl", and celebrates spontaneous road trips "Waking Up in Vegas". Thanks to a cadre of top-shelf producers, including Desmond Child, Dave Stewart, and Glen Ballard, ONE OF THE BOYS glitters like spun cotton candy, but it's Perry's bold, topical songs and in-your-face attitude that help the album pack a punch.
