TODAY’S READING ASSIGNMENT: Katy Perry
, who’s “just a regular girl gone big,” in the view of writer Melena Ryzik, gets the feature treatment this weekend in the N.Y. Times, ahead of the release on Tuesday of Teenage Dream. Perry is “a drop-dead gorgeous girl [with] a truck driver’s mouth,” says EMI marketing and promo whiz exec Greg Thompson, whose unflagging efforts had a lot to do with the previously obscure artist’s spectacular breakthrough. “She has a very distinctive vision,” Thompson points out. “If it’s not something that she doesn’t want, it doesn’t happen. She’s firmly the CEO of Katy Perry.” You’ll definitely wanna read this piece, which is headlined “A Vivacious Pop Cartoon Springs Out of the Playbook.” (8/20a)
