In one scene, Katy Perry is seen receiving an award at the 2011 American Music Awards before the film cuts to a backstage scene of Lady Gaga supposedly congratulating her, despite the fact that the latter artist did not attend that awards show. (The backstage scene actually takes place at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards.) See more »

It's all just a way cash in, but we do get to see a very likable side of Katy Perry.
Yeah, I actually took the time to watch this. It's exactly what you would expect. It's simply another touring concert movie to cash in on the success of a modern icon, but at least we do get to see why people look up to Katy Perry in such a way. Is it her music? Okay, but lots of artists have good music. Is it her fashion? I don't think that's it either. I think people look up to Perry because her personality is just so likable, and she's faced relatable issues and real life problems, all of that leading to where she is now. Maybe the movie makes her a little too likable, but you can see exactly why she's considered such a role model, and any fan of her music (guilty) will enjoy hearing the live performances of her songs.
