She may be a Smurfette, but 2013 has been anything but blue for pop superstar Katy Perry. Her latest album Prism debuted at No. 1 around the world – including New Zealand – and last week she learned that her smash hit single Roar has been nominated for both the Best Pop Performance and Best Pop Song prizes at the 2014 Grammy Awards.
