Katy Perry shares a photo of her 13-year-old self in the recording studio

Katy Perry has uploaded a photo of herself at the age of 13 in a recording studio on Instagram.

The US star has captioned the shot '13 year old. Wannabe popstar'.

Wearing a grey top, dalmation spot-patterned belt and blue jeans, Perry was actually called Katy Hudson, and the daughter to a hard-core Christian family. Her first album was named "Katy Hudson", guitar-based and influenced by Christian rock and pop. The album sold 200 copies.

Twenty years later, Perry is one of the world's most successful popstars, with four Guinness World Records, five American Music Awards, a Brit Award and a Juno Award all to her name. She has even made the Forbes 'Top-Earning Women in Music (2011-2016)' list. She has also sold over 100 million records worldwide.
