It seems that every year another concert documentary is released, in an attempt to capitalize on a international pop star's dedicated audience. But Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D is different. The movie t strips away all the makeup, wigs and false eyelashes to show the vulnerable girl behind the international pop star machine. Die-hard fans and even haters will be hooked watching this stripped down look at this California dream.
Like concert documentaries before, Part of Me gives movie goers a frontrow seat to the biggest tour of Katy's career – her California Dreams World Tour. Shot throughout 2011 leading up to her divorce from Russell Brand, it’s obvious that there’s more tothe film than just singing and dancing in your seat while munching on butterypopcorn.
Katy shows intimate footage of her trying to make it in themusic industry and all the struggles she endured along the way. She definitelywasn’t an overnight success with her smash hit single I Kissed a Girl.

As great as it was to watch her put on one rocking show andsee her success story on the big screen, there’s something so much more intimateabout the film.
