You have all her albums, know the lyrics to her shimmering pop songs and have watched her belt out your favourite singles in concert and you think you know Katy Perry. Well get ready for a candid, inside look at her life on tour, backstage, with her family and in the public eye in Katy Perry: Part of Me, her upcoming 3D concert movie/behind-the-scenes diary that aims to show you it ain't easy being Katy Perry but it's so much fun.
We recently chatted with the bubbly 27-year-old in Toronto, where she surprised lucky fans at a sneak peek screening, and found out why she wanted to make Part of Me, how Madonna: Truth or Dare inspired her and why being embarrassed is actually pretty cool.

Everyone is out to get him. First, a team of guards attempted to murder him, and then his wife tried to kill him. Is he working for Euromerica as a covert spy? Or do his allegiances lie with New Shanghai as the two nations battle for supremacy? He can’t remember what side he's on, let alone figure out if his memories are real, or if what he recalls are manufactured ideas that have been implanted into his brain. It’s going to be a futuristic goose chase as Quaid (Colin Farrell) dodges bullets and runs for his life in the action thriller Total Recall.
Set in the year 2084, the movie turns its Toronto set into an ultramodern high-tech amalgam of a major metropolis with iconic relics of the past (like London’s Big Ben). Thankfully, leather jackets and cargo pants are still popular in the future making it easy to navigate around in one of the city’s many flying cars while dodging bullets and shards of glass.

It may be Seth MacFarlane's first time helming a feature film, but you'd never know it by the top box office spot his crass comedy Ted earned over the Canada Day long weekend. The movie follows Mark Wahlberg's man-child John whose stuffed bear Ted (voiced by MacFarlane) came to life thanks to a childhood wish and now favours drugs and booze to working and behaving responsibly. MacFarlane already has a sizable fanbase thanks to his hit animated sitcoms "Family Guy," "American Dad" and "The Cleveland Show" and even the prospect of a semi-nude Channing Tatum proved to be no match for the fanboys who dig MacFarlane's brand of lewd cutaway comedy.
Fangirls, on the other hand, helped bring Magic Mike, Steven Soderbergh's ode to the scandalous-and-scantilly-clad life and times of a few male strippers, to second place thanks to the rampant skin-baring of stars Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer.
While the North American box office had Disney-Pixar's Brave in third place, the tale of a brazen Scottish princess who rebels against her mother's wishes for marriage beat out the dancing men of Magic Mike in Canada, finding itself in the second slot.
It was all too easy to confuse Andy Griffith the actor with Sheriff Andy Taylor, his most famous character from "The Andy Griffith Show."
After all, Griffith set his namesake show in a make-believe town based on his hometown of Mount Airy, N.C., and played his "aw, shucks" persona to such perfection that viewers easily believed the character and the man were one.
Griffith, 86, died Tuesday at his coastal home, Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie said in a statement.
"Mr. Griffith passed away this morning at his home peacefully and has been laid to rest on his beloved Roanoke Island," Doughtie told The Associated Press, reading from a family statement.

Shifting the attention away from his impending divorce from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise pulls a Gosling and shows us a bit of the old ultra-violence while swiftly maneuvering the city streets in a sleek sports car (...of some kind, I'm not a car person) in the first official trailer for Jack Reacher.
Based on the 18-deep book series by Lee Child, Cruise inhabits a character who was written as massively physically imposing, standing at 6'5", but the actor's considerably smaller stature proves to be of no matter in the dark and moody scenes that show him breaking bones and inciting fear as if he were that big a man.
Sporting similar moves to Ethan Hunt, the character he most recently played in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Cruise is back to his action film star self after donning smudgy eye-liner, pistol tattoos and leather pants in Rock of Ages to play a washed-up musician.
Check out the trailer for Jack Reacher after the jump!
Meet your big-screen Johanna Mason. Jena Malone, the early aughts young actress of choice to play the brooding love interest to equally brooding boys (Donnie Darko, The United States of Leland) and current Nancy McCoy on the History Channel's "Hatfields & McCoys," has scored the coveted role of District 7's former Hunger Games winner who develops a complicated connection to Katniss Everdeen.
Malone will appear as Mason in Catching Fire, the second part in the phenomenon that is Suzanne Collins' young adult trilogy that follow teens who battle to the death for the entertainment of sadistic, power-mad heads of state like the bearded and bad President (Donald Sutherland).
While Gary Ross directed the first HG movie, Francis Lawrence (Water for Elephants, I Am Legend) will be helming the sequel that brings back Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci and Sutherland and introduces another actor besides Malone who's sure to send tween girls into a frenzy; Philip Seymour Hoffman.
When Katy Perry burst on to the music scene in 2008 with her runaway hit "I Kissed A Girl," few could have predicted her meteoric rise. Four years later, the former Christian folk singer is a chart-busting force and a mogul in the making. We’re talking international awards, global tours, film credits and beauty products to her name.
And with the release of her documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me, she may soon be adding box office star to her list of accolades. The film offers a behind the scenes looks at Katy’s quirky costumes, a mix pin-up girl sex appeal and a cheeky sense of humour (where Madonna had the cone bra, Katy likes lollipops or whipped cream). But she’s also developed another side to her style that plays up her bombshell image. Katy’s red carpet preference is a fashion-forward persona that blends traditional glam with pop star extravagance into perfect harmony, and deserves a second look.
