Katy Perry has never been one to mince words, and she proved that once again during the  NARM (National Association Of Recording Merchandisers) awards with her win for Artist of The Year.

Given the fact that she was raised in a house where she was not able to even listen to the music she sings today, this has to be an even sweeter reward.

You have to have a pretty thick skin in this business, and never give up, along with being talented. Katy can check all those off the list. Even though this is an industry award, she definitely knows where her bread is buttered, and shows that in how grateful she is for all of them in helping her be as successful as she has become.
