katyperry2.jpgKaty Perry, dubbed “internet darling” by the Associated Press after her breakout performances at SXSW in March, will perform on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour Hurley Stage for its entire coast-to-coast run, from June 20th to August 17th, 2008.

The 23-year-old songstress will join the traveling rock circus three days after her debut album, One of the Boys, is released by Capitol Records on June 17th. Katy was one of five performers chosen by Warped Tour to play the official pre-party press conference in Los Angeles in April. “Warped is going to be grueling and hot, but I’m ready to survive it — even without showers,” Katy says. “Gwen Stefani did the tour back in 2000 with No Doubt and she looked fabulous hopping around on stage in her little polka-dotted dresses. I’m so channeling that.”
