Katy Perry doesn't just sing about being a California Girl. She is one!
The singer was raised in the beautiful coastal city of Santa Barbara. "I just like that you can go and enjoy the vitamin D everyday outside," she says of the town's golden rays. "When you wake up and the sun is shining, there's a positive mood, atmosphere that's created."
