Broke and on the brink of giving up, the glam siren almost let Hollywood get the best of her. One hit album later, she’s hell-bent on owning the place.
Katy Perry knows how to make an entrance. At last year’s MTV Europe Music Awards, she hit the stage in a football uniform while straddling a gigantic tube of lip balm.

And at her Cosmo photo shoot, the 24-year-old stunner gives everyone a doe-eyed wink as she struts straight to—where else?—the stereo and cranks Lindsay Lohan’s “Bossy.”
It’s an apt choice, since there’s no doubt Katy is in charge. She’s rocking 5-inch Emilio Pucci heels and striking poses so fast, the camera barely keeps up.
