THE BIG BREAK THAT ALMOST DIDN’T HAPPEN…THREE TIMES!
"I got a phone call from the guy that ran Capitol Records because they were going to sign me and they decided not to sign me. This was my third record label [to do that to me]. I was like, ‘I’m going through this again!’ And he called me a few months later while I was sitting in that cubicle and said, ‘I’m sorry, I almost made the biggest mistake of not signing you. I really believe in you. Let’s just do it, let’s just try!’ I was like, ‘Really?’ And he was like ‘Yea, let’s just try!’ So we did it." - KATY PERRY
