Katy Perry circa 2001: a natural blond!

Days after footage of vintage Lady Gaga, all brunette and be-pantsed, bum-rushed the internet, an eight-year-old Katy Perry clip has now popped up on YouTube, showing her in the days when she was a Christian artist known by her given name, Katy Hudson.

Check out the 16-year-old Perry below in her pre pop-pinup days, looking like a baby Juliana Hatfield in blond pigtails and singing songs of teenage angst, below:

What do you think, Music Mixers — can you connect the young, earnest Lilith Fairy of yesteryear with the girl-kissing, Vegas-waking top-40 minx of today?

    I’m not normally into the Christian rock thing, but that was actually pretty good.

    And she looks a lot cuter as a blonde too.

    i kind of like it. not bad at all, to be honest. not sure how well she’d do with this type of music since the main stream music would rather not hear this kind of music, but i wouldn’t be opposed to her going back this style of music.

    also, she’s not doing bad with what she’s got right now.

    Must be before she kissed a girl.
    Not bad.

    Wow, I guess her talent is indirectly proportional to the amount of make up she wears and boob she shows. Talented as a buttoned-up jesus freak and so untalented as a plastic “bi-buy me” barbie.

    she’s the best in blond or as a 40ies pinup – she has it

    I actally like her better like this. Too bad, her only good song as Katy Perry is I Kissed a Girl! Whenever she comes on the radio now, I change the channel. She is as obnoxious as Miley Cyrus.

    I like it, but I can’t understand most of the words. Honestly, I didn’t realize she was that good of a singer.

  • mark

    really great!

  • Julie

    Love her voice! I would absolutely buy this CD, but “Hot n Cold” is the only song on her current CD I can stand. So sad :-(

  • double down dave

    she looks like Dominique Swain, just not as hot.

  • Gina

    Simply horrible singing.

    Wow. What a voice! It too bad pop is so repetious and heavily synthesized. Her handlers are hiding her light under a bushel.
