This time last week I was a normal Katy Perry fan, who enjoyed her music and liked her a normal amount. After going to see a showing of Katy's new movie 'Part of Me' I have Perry fever. 

I'm not really sure what I was expecting from the movie. I thought it would be a fun way to experience her sold out concert that I wasn't lucky enough to get tickets for. I thought it would be interesting to get a glimpse into the life of one of the biggest acts of the moment. I did not for a minute think I would have been laughing, then crying, then relating to the events that were going on in someone's life that I had never met. 

'Part of Me' guides us through the highs and lows of Katy Perry's life from the last year. From huge success in her career, to falling in love and importantly, how the music industry can sometime take its toll on people. 

Throughout the full movie Katy is honest, endearing and dedicated - not only to her job, but to her fans. Her entourage is filled with people she has known for years and the chemistry they have really shines throughout the film ( in particular, a certain fart sound box scene ). 

I think the thing people tend to forget with celebrities - myself included - is that they're just normal people. 'Part of Me' really shows that we all have heartbreak and bad days, but it's how you deal with them that counts.  

I would encourage anyone who has ever had a dream to watch this movie. It's such an inspiring tale of how if you have enough passion for something ( and in this case bucket loads of talent ) you will succeed.
