    Perry's first major label release was the single "Ur So Gay," later placed on her major label album, "One of the Boys." The song has been called homophobic, though Perry told TheNewGay.net that she didn't mean a negative connotation.

    Perry was known as Katheryn Hudson when she attended Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta, Calif., just west of Santa Barbara. She left school after her freshman year to pursue a career in music, but did earn her GED. She changed her last name to Perry, her mother's maiden name, because "Katy Hudson" was too similar to actress Kate Hudson.

But not wanting to denigrate the reason she was in Japan, the "Firework" singer then wrote : "...But of COURSE I (love) my Japanese fans &the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! #it'snotrightbutit'sokay." Finally, Katy tried to use Twitter to rescue Russell by urging followers to retweet: "#FREE@RUSTYROCKETS!"

Russell wasn't silent himself during the ordeal. He updated his followers on the situation with "prisoner" tweets, along with photos:

"Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick http://yfrog.com/gybs7id "

"Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled."
