Katy Perry's Height
5ft 7 (170.2 cm)
American Singer known for songs such as Roar, Firework and I Kissed a Girl. In a 2009 article she mentioned her height, saying "I'm 5'8", I'm tall-ish! I'm not that little of a rock princess"
. She also mentioned in a video when talking about a tour bus ceiling height: "And if you're taller than 5 foot 7, it sucks"
and when she was taking part in a bungy-jump, her weight was written on her hand as 61kg (134lbs).
I'm generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn't know what to do with, so I wore minimizers, which were not cut.

I think she needs an upgrade. 5'7.5 is most accurate.

Solid 5’7” 171cm

She is 5'7¾.
Joe 5'10 1/2 said on 11/Jan/21
Was that tour bus she was on designed for hobbits? If a 5'7 guy said that he'd be slaughtered.
Looks a couple inches shorter than Orlando Bloom. 170cm.

Rob this is selby drummond, she claims she is 6 ft tall. Do you think it’s possibly with Katy and Karlie ?
could be a weak 6ft
said on 1/Jan/21
Rob how would Katy compare to a 185 cm person if both barefoot?
Where would she come to the 185 cm person ?
I feel she might be near the end of the nose of the taller person, or just over it.
said on 29/Dec/20
Rob for me Katy is almost 5ft 7
i think Ciara is an inch taller than her.
yeah, with Ciara, there are photos she is 2 inches smaller...albeit, Ciara has thicker heels.
Still hard to imagine Perry over 5ft 7, and arguable looked 5ft 6.5-6.75 with Ciara.
said on 26/Dec/20
Big Rob do you think over 170 cm is a possibility for Katy ? The average guess has her over 171.
The most I'd guess is a fraction over 5ft 7, I just can't see her as tall as 5ft 8 though
said on 5/Dec/20
Rob is Katy Perry here taller than Orlando? would she be almost 6ft in the shoes she wears or taller ? Click Here
in heels Perry can match up well with Orlando, I think almost 6ft in heels there.

@ Heightist999 - You could be right but who knows what she thinks!
Heightist999 said on 26/Nov/20
That "And if you're taller than 5 foot 7" screams that she is only 5'7 and she knows it.

5ft7 flat for katty and 5ft7.25 for jennifer Click Here
Nik Ashton said on 3/Nov/20
@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - Many of the voters think she is taller than that!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Nov/20
@ Leesheff85 and Christian - That's me been told then! 😆
I can't get the image of Katy when she stood up in The 'X' Factor and looked mighty tall. It's OBVIOUS then that she was all glammed up, including very high heels, but that image has stayed with me somehow. I'll have to look for pictures which tell me otherwise.
Cheers guys! XX 😁 XX 😁
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Nov/20
I think Rob's 5'7" listing is ok for now. I'd deviate 1/4" for the lowest/highest.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Nov/20
@ Pikachu - I-N-T-E-R-E-S-T-I-N-G!
@ Christian 6'5 3/8" - What’s the lowest you could see?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Nov/20
5'8" is way too high for her IMO, although something like 5'7.25" isn't impossible.
Nik Ashton said on 30/Oct/20
It doesn’t suck to be any height whoever you are.
Nik Ashton said on 30/Oct/20
@ Leesheff85 - Some of the voters think she is close!
Nik Ashton said on 28/Oct/20
It doesn’t suck to be over 5’7”.

5ft7 max for katty perry
Leesheff85 said on 13/Oct/20
Sandy you cant believe katy is 5ft 8? Shes clearly shorter than Rihanna in every photo and 5ft 10.5 Orlando bloom is still loads taller than her in heels. 5ft 6.5 is my guess
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 14/Sep/20
I bet Rob doesn't believe Katy is over 5'7 1/4 max.
Wouldn't estimate her as tall as 5ft 8, I suppose 171cm is arguable at times.
Hacker said on 13/Sep/20
Maybe Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr will soon meet in similar footwear to finally settle who is taller of the 2. Barefoot, I think Katy may have a slight advantage.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Sep/20
I agree with GTB173cm (and that rhymes!) that Katy is definitely around the 5ft8 mark, only I'd say a fairly strong one. I'd have believed going on for 5ft9 at one time, but that possibly has a large dollop of influence courtesy of the mags I used to read in my pre-internet days.
When I saw Katy doing a slot on the 'X' Factor, and very entertaining she was too, when she stood up, I was absolutely dumbfounded as to her tallness. Obviously, she'll have been wearing super-high heels, but even so....! I thought, when she was to marry Russell Brand, they were an ideal match in the height department. Silly fool he was to mess her about..... 😝
I'll give the lovely Katy 5ft8.
GTB173cm said on 10/Sep/20
A weak 5’8 no less

Glad my contribution to this site (seeing her weight written on her hand years ago) has made it into the blurb above :-D
The French Dude said on 12/Aug/20
She's pretty tall, gets a strong 5'7 for me
Mouse22 said on 6/Aug/20
@Roderick The same happened to me! When I saw Katy in real life I was surprised how small she was compared to what people who just saw pictures of her seem to think. I didn't expect to be so much taller than her, she's really 5'6" at the very most. Nearly every woman can look tall in huge heels (which, for a few years, she used to wear a lot) in a picture as long as she doesn't happen to be standing next to Gwendoline Christie.
Keshta said on 1/Aug/20
She is tall. No under 1,71
Jam Cherry said on 23/May/20
She’s tall I think she’s about 171 cm
Nik Ashton said on 5/May/20
@ Nicholas 5'9.25" - Firstly, all male and female heights are cool and heels count in a sense because they make some ladies (different heights) feel more confident (others of different heights don’t want to wear them), however they don’t count in terms of real height. It is cool when heel wearing ladies are taller than men, men aren’t that much different from women on average and it should be cool to be just about any man and cool to be just about any woman, whatever footwear anyone has on and whatever height anyone is. The only people that shouldn’t be celebrated are people committing acts that are bad enough to cause significant enough and lasting harm.
I’m quite happy to celebrate any person of any gender wearing elevator boots, we should realise that the elevator boots aren’t part of a persons real height but we should celebrate everyone’s real height.
Yes, those heels you mentioned would have to be massive heels but they are out there!
Nicholas 5'9.25" said on 28/Apr/20
@ Nik Ashton First, that would have to be some massive heels! Second, heels obviously dont count, what's next, we're gonna celebrate Sylvester Stallone hitting 6 feet in his massive elevator shoes? I don't think so.
said on 28/Apr/20
Hey Rob, how much height do those heels add? They look like a 4 inch heel atleast!
A good 4 inches, but maybe not much more than that.
Nik Ashton said on 21/Apr/20
@ Littlelee5ft6 - If she was 6’0” in her heels then she would be taller than about 85% of men! Things like this should be celebrated by everyone.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 20/Apr/20
Yes nik they are very high heels she wears. May take her to around six foot
Nik Ashton said on 20/Apr/20
Maybe she is my height twin!
Nik Ashton said on 17/Apr/20
She’s probably taller than over 70% of men when she is wearing heels!
Monkey knees said on 14/Apr/20
5ft 7.25in flat. Beautiful and tall. Dwarfs some men when in heels.
Sandy A Cowell said on 11/Apr/20
@ Roderick - One thing’s for sure, whether or not we are interested in height, we always notice very tall or tiny heights, and heights that are different to how tall we were expecting someone to be. I didn’t think Katy would be as tall as she is, but then I saw her standing up when she was a guest judge on the ‘X’ Factor and I though, “Wow! What a TALL GIRL!”
She’ll have been wearing high heels, of course....👠👠
5ft7.75 this Easter. 🐣
Roderick said on 3/Apr/20
@Miss Sandy It is interesting because she does look pretty tall. I was surprised. My friend and I looked at each other and said, "wait, isn't that Katy Perry?" and I thought wow she isn't that tall. This was before I even cared for heights.
Nik Ashton said on 15/Mar/20
I would love to see a photograph of her with Miranda Kerr, the average guess for Katy Perry is extremely close to the average guess for Miranda Kerr!
Hacker said on 11/Mar/20
Factoring in Miranda Kerr slight head tilt, Katy Perry still had smaller heels when they posed together. Without shoes standing back-to-back, might be tough one to call.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Mar/20
@ Roderick - Wow! To think that I fell for the 5ft9, or certainly didn't think she could be below 5ft8!
The reason I was so set on believing that she was that tall is because I saw her on The 'X' Factor as a temporary judge, and nobody can really stare at the judges' footwear for any great length of time except for the walkings-on at beginning of the programme. I wish I remember who the other female judge was, but she was a LOT smaller than Katy, who was gorgeous, witty and likeably flirty and sexy!
Cheers Roderick, and nice to continue our in-depth Katy chit chat! 😆👍
Roderick said on 5/Mar/20
@Miss Sandy I honestly can't even remember when. I know it was at least 3 years ago, but I don't know the exact year. She did look a lot shorter than I was, like similar to some of my ex-girlfriends who I know were 5'6" range
said on 4/Mar/20
I gueesthat shes 5ft 7. How tall she can measure here Click Here
Should be 6ft range, the front isn't quite as thick as it looks, though still rather large platform.
Panchsfhool said on 4/Mar/20
1.70cm no more
TheBat said on 18/Feb/20
5'7" at best. Katy is more or less a weak 5'7" in the afternoon.
Gigs said on 22/Jan/20
My guess is 5’7, no less and no more. That picture of her with pregnant Miranda Kerr (5’8), Miranda wasn’t standing straight, her body was tilted forward and her head was tilted down, while Katy was holding up her head high and standing up straight, that’s why Katy looked slightly taller.
Maggie Sammoud said on 28/Dec/19
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/19
@ Roderick - Lucky you to have seen Katy at such close proximity! Yes, 4" IS a big difference, there's no denying that.
Cheers Roderick! 😁👍
Roderick said on 11/Dec/19
@Miss Sandy Maybe in some heels. I thought max 5'6" when I seen her in front of a restaurant, but maybe I misjudged and she was really more like 5'6.5"... but she certainly didn't look 5'7" or 5'8".
To be honest I felt waaay taller, like 4 inches minimum
Spencer Dobkin said on 4/Dec/19
Darius said on 23/Nov/19
Katy looked 5'6.75" tops with Dua Lipa who is supposedly 5'8"......Not sure about the footwear differences though...................
truthteller25 said on 12/Nov/19
Looks just over average height
Hacker said on 11/Nov/19
Katy is taller than listed height of 5 foot 7. She attended the Baby2Baby event in LA this weekend and towered over everyone- 2 inches taller than 5 ft 7 Chrissy Teigen, 1 inch over 5 ft 7 Kelly Rowland, 1 inch over 5 ft 8 Kelly Sawyer, 1.5 inches over Kate Hudson, 1 inch over 5 ft 7.5 Jennifer Garner & 3 inches over 5 ft 6.25 Jessica Alba. Please upgrade Katy to 5 foot 8.
David Kashfi said on 11/Nov/19
@Christian No, Katy did not lose height by 34 years old. Katy's full adult height is 5'7" God told me. She has always been 5'7" since she reached this full adult height.
Nik Ashton said on 3/Nov/19
@ Sandy Cowell - I-N-T-E-R-E-S-T-I-N-G!
Hacker said on 3/Nov/19
Katy is taller than Miranda barefoot. At the Noni Bright launch, Katy was taller in shorter heels... Shocker.
Hacker said on 3/Nov/19
If we are honest, I didn't expect Katy Perry to actually be taller than Miranda Kerr when posing together in similar footwear. Either Miranda Kerr needs a downgrade or Katy Perry needs an upgrade
Hacker said on 2/Nov/19
Wow- Katy Perry is actually taller in height than Miranda Kerr. Didn't expect this revolution.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Oct/19
@ Roderick - I read in a magazine when Katy was first on the scene that she was five foot NINE! 🤭
Roderick said on 27/Oct/19
She has walked in front of me in Hollywood before. I honestly think she is 5'6", hell even 5'5.75" isn't ruled out. I felt like I towered her by at least 4 inches.

Katy is 5'7 or 5'7.25 tall. I love her so much.
Roderick said on 10/Oct/19
I have seen her and who I assume was her boyfriend get out of a car before and she walked right in front of me. I would guess 5'6" now that I know I'm 5'10" and not 5'11". She doesn't look that tall in person. She gives a much taller impression in pictures.
Trigueros-5ft9.5 said on 4/Oct/19
Katy Perry obviously lied.she isn't 5ft8in or 5ft7.5in (like the average guess!)...just 5ft7in sounds perfect, no shorter and no taller.
5ft8in ? Ahhhh ...Jesus Christ!
Nik said on 17/Sep/19
5'8" is tall!
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 15/Sep/19
She is 5ft 6 and half....
Guesser6382 said on 7/Aug/19
I think she’s either taller than 5’8 or has better posture than most people who are 5’8.... I’ve met her and with heels she’s 5’11-6’.... my guess is 5’8.5 at the lowest.

rob it is possible for katy to be taller than 170 cm?

With Orlando she doesn't look over that mark.

The average vote is 5’7.45” after 222 votes!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jul/19
I came along to Katy's page to mention that it might be a good idea for Katy to take up acting some day. (I knew she was tall as I'd read it, and observed her when she was a temporary judge on The 'X' Factor.)
Instead of concentrating on my stating of the fact that I believe she'd be a natural in the acting industry, I've found out that Katy possessed, as a schoolgirl, the most enormous pair of knockers that she was at a loss as to what to do with the things!
Well put Katy, for on the occasion that I put on too much weight, I found their size far too cumbersome for comfort. I breathed a sigh of relief when I lost the weight, I can tell you!
Katy gets 5ft7.5 from me - her height in stockinged feet. I had read she was 5ft9 - and didn't disbelieve it - at the time she was doing her stint as an 'X' Factor judge.
Hacker said on 21/Jun/19
Katy Perry attended Miranda Kerr's Kora Organics event in Malibu earlier today. Both ladies wore similar sized heels (Miranda's maybe slightly higher) and looked similar in height. Always knew they were the same height (maybe Miranda a smidge shorter).
Stranger things fan said on 11/May/19

Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 10/Jan/19
She's 5'7", not 5'8". When her and Taylor Swift were together, she was like two inches shorter, so she isn't over that. Still pretty tall for a woman and she is attractive. Katy is five feet seven inches tall.
Hacker said on 5/Jan/19
Katy and Miranda Kerr did actually pose together backstage at the Stella McCartney Autumn Collection Launch in January 2018. Suprisingly, Miranda Kerr had heels and was only around 1 inch taller than Katy. Katy wore pink and black flats to the event. Katy may just be the taller of the 2.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Nov/18
So you're saying that Katy lost height by 34 years old?
David K said on 24/Nov/18
God told me that Katy used to be five foot seven and 5.6 inches, so that's five foot seven point 6. She was actually five seven and 6.5 inches at SXSW in Austin, Texas because God beautified her for her performances there. He told me this.
David K said on 24/Nov/18
@Mouse22 I respect your opinion on Katy's height. Although to me the pics at Monaco show Katy is taller than 5'6". Keep in mind though that if young Katy Perry says "If you're taller than five foot seven, it sucks" this means that she was taller than five foot seven. So my theory that young Katy Perry was taller than current Katy Perry seems plausible.
said on 16/Nov/18
Rob,do you think Katy would measure taller than some guys like Nick Jonas and Big G?
At times she can look 169, but overall I still think would measure closer to 5ft 7 than say 6.5.
Mouse22 said on 3/Oct/18
@David K I’m not sure what all that means and why my recent comment doesn’t appear here but stuff about hearing god’s voice does. Anyway, if we look at Katy’s recent appearance at the gala in Monaco we see that in group photos without platform heels there she’s actually the shortest female. She’s in fact not mor than 5’6” in reality, not because an imaginary celestial being informed me of that but because I once stood next to her and I see her standing next to other people. See the pictures taken at Monaco, then it’s clear she’s not that tall at all.
David K said on 2/Oct/18
@Mouse22 I was wrong about what I believed earlier. God did not tell me that Katy used to be 5'7 3/4" and lost height and is now 5'7". The devil deceived me about that. Katy did not lose height. The real God told me that Katy is 5'7.3" inches. God said Katy is a hair over 5'7 1/4". Katy is exactly 2 inches shorter than me! It was the real God this time! And no, God would not tell me His height. I'm not worthy of knowing God's height. God told me that no human being is, except His beloved son, Jesus Christ. And His greatest prophet before Jesus, Moses. God called me junior Moses. That was very kind of Him. I did not think I was worthy of it, but God said I am worthy of it.
David K said on 2/Oct/18
@berta I think you're right about Katy's height in centimeters. I think Katy is about 171 centimeters. I think you're extremely close. God told me Katy is 5'7.3" inches. God said Katy is just a hair over 5'7 1/4" inches. Congratulations berta!
berta said on 30/Aug/18
i think she is a little over 5 foot 7 maybe 171 cm is better listing rob?
Son Goku said on 10/Aug/18
I'm surprised look at the average guess, more than a robs above! I would put her 5'6.5-5'7" though.
David K said on 1/Aug/18
@Mouse22 Thank you. I don't know God's height. However, I might be mistaken that Katy used to be 5'7 3/4". Sometimes Katy looks 5'7" and sometimes Katy looks a bit more than 5'7". For example, if you look at her 2007 SXSW music festival performances which are on YouTube and were filmed in Austin, Texas in March 2007, you can see her long beautiful legs which make her look a little over 5'7". She is probably not over 5'7 1/2".
Mouse22 said on 29/Jun/18
@David K Congratulations on your communication with God! By the way, how tall is God? I don’t find him on the list here.
Hacker said on 22/Jun/18
Katy Perry did use pink and black flats to the Stella McCartney Autumn Collection Launch event, however, they were not completely flat (1 inch height advantage). Miranda Kerr did use heels that would give her in the region of 2.5 inches of height. Barefoot/ similar footwear, Miranda may find herself looking up to Katy.
Nik said on 1/Jun/18
5 ft 7 and a little bit of change'
David K said on 15/May/18
@Mouse22 Thank you for your interesting message and your time. It's very nice that you were able to meet Katy. I know the truth about her height. God told me that Katy used to be 5'7 3/4", which is why she claimed 5'8" in a 2009 article. However, Katy is now 5'7". Katy lost a little height. God told me this.
Mouse22 said on 23/Apr/18
@David K Since I stood next to her I’m sure she’s far from 171cm as far as I’m concerned, and for the first time I understood the people who have been around her in real life even thinking the 5’7” a slight exaggeration. She barely reaches my nose in two or three inch heels, that’s really not as tall as that. I think the story that she should literally have claimed to be 5’8” is just something which came out after some word twisting. Nobody can really judge or guess those things by seeing photos and videos alone, I think we have to see the people in real life at least once. There’s a video with Katy and Jennifer Nettles in which Jennifer looks taller than her while in reality being, on the contrary, at least an inch shorter. Those things, with wearing heels etc, just distort too much to get a real impression of them.
said on 17/Apr/18
hello Rob, how tall is katy in those big platforms? Click Here
Should get her near to 6ft flat
David K said on 24/Mar/18
@Spencer 171 cm is a great guess! That would put Katy close to 5'7 1/2". You're a good judge of Katy's height.
David K said on 23/Feb/18
I watched the tour bus video with Katy on YouTube again which I found to be insightful about her height in November 2015. As some people have said, Katy does look like she's stooping in the video and seems to indicate that she is over 5'7". I think Katy is 5'7 1/2". That's my current belief. So when she claimed 5'8" in a 2009 article which Rob mentioned, she rounded up of course.
Mouse22 said on 19/Feb/18
Reading about people who have spent time with her, worked with her etc, I’ve recently come across more who said once you’re that close to her she only seems around 5’5” to 5’6” in bare feet. Reminds me of when I stood close to her myself once and was surprised how small she seemed in relation to how she’s represented on internet sites. She seemed only around 5’5” to me, too. There’s so much false stuff around about her person, a myth about her being tall would be the simplest one of them and wouldn’t surprise really.
Warren said on 16/Feb/18
Surprised Miranda Kerr seems only 5'7.5" in the below comments, I also guess Katys averege guess is more closer to the Robs above
David K said on 6/Feb/18
171 centimeters is a very good guess. It might even be "spot on" as the expression goes. 171 centimeters is about 5'7.3". We could also say that 171 centimeters is a tad over five seven. But of course I'm not sure of Katy's exact height.
Psychedelic Earth said on 2/Feb/18
171cm is arguable.
Jess said on 20/Jan/18
A quater of an inch uprgrade Rob?She seems taller than Cara
David K said on 11/Jan/18
@Minky That's a great theory that you posted! I did not think of your theory that Katy's torso may be longer than other women who are 5'8". That is very insightful of you! However, I don't think that Katy's legs are short. I think Katy's legs are definitely longer than average, and that Katy definitely looks taller than average. Although Katy's legs and shins in particular look a little shorter than women who are 5'8", she could still be about 5'8" if Katy has a longer torso. However, I still don't think that Katy is a full 5'8". I think that Katy might be 5'7 3/4". That's at the most. That would make her the same height as actress Hudson Leick, who is best known for playing Callisto on Xena and is a very successful yoga instructor. Hudson is 5'7 3/4".
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 9/Jan/18
171 not impossible.
Angelos said on 9/Jan/18
What if the ceiling on the tour bus is not 5’7” ? Just because she said that it doesn't mean it’s true. Nothing more than 5‘7“ for Katy ,even Rob said that a weak 5‘7“ is possible.
Editor Rob: I'm not sure only 5ft 6, although there is an argument that sometimes she really does look under 5ft 7
Judy said on 6/Jan/18
You can see on the tour bus video that she couldn't stand up straight as her head touched the 5'7 ceiling. She would be at least 5'8.
David K said on 4/Jan/18
@Mouse22 I just noticed a few days ago that Google and imdb now both say Katy is 5'7". That's interesting. Both sites used to say that Katy is 5'8". Since Katy said she is 5'8" in the 2009 article, I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt. Katy is nice and a great girl, and I don't think she would add a whole inch to her height. I think she is probably 5'7 1/2" and rounded up to 5'8". If Katy is 5'7", I think she claimed 5'8" probably because her management told her to claim 5'8" because it would be beneficial for her career and image as a sexy pop star. That's understandable for both Katy and her management. At the time in 2009, her success as a pop star was not nearly as established as it is now. If Katy is really 5'7", I wonder if she might later publicly confirm that.
David K said on 31/Dec/17
@Mouse22 Thank you for your great patience, my fellow KatyCat. Happy New Year to you! I still agree with you that Katy is less than 5'8". However, I have recently believed that Katy is more than 5'7". Katy is probably about 5'7 1/2". Her height is difficult to guess exactly because to me it seems like her shins look a little longer in some pictures than others, although this must be a perspective issue. But at least in her pictures from 2008 and 2009, her legs and shins clearly look long enough for her to be close to 5'8". This makes sense because as Rob wrote, Katy said she was 5'8" in a 2009 article. If Katy is only 5'7", I don't think she would claim to be a whole inch taller, 5'8". I think Katy is more honest than that. This also makes sense because she is stooping a little bit as she walks away from the camera in the tour bus video I linked to in November 2015, showing that she is a little taller than 5'7". So she is probably 5'7 1/2", which is the maximum height I posted I think she is earlier. I just noticed this evening that coincidentally, several other people have posted here since Christmas that they think Katy is a little more than 5'7", which is exactly my opinion now.
Kelly said on 31/Dec/17
I actually think she is in the region of 174cm. Most definitely taller than shorter models like Miranda Kerr on a fair measurement.
Pope said on 30/Dec/17
170-171 cm not more
Grass said on 29/Dec/17
She seems 5'7,75. She's a tall girl.
said on 29/Dec/17
Actually, seeing Katy next to Snoop Dogg, I would say that 171 cm will be better for her! I fully agree with this, that you should give it an upgrade to 5'7.25"
Besides Rob, I would say that she is max to 2 inches shorter than Taylor Swift, which I do not think you need to lower. But Katy deserve this upgrade! Click Here
Olga said on 28/Dec/17
Katy needs an upgrade to at least 5'8, and Miranda Kerr a downgrade to 5'7.5.
said on 27/Dec/17
Rob if katy was wearing 6 inch heels and I was barefoot (i'm 184) would she be taller than me?
Editor Rob: the 6 inch heels might only give 4.5-4.75 range (assuming near 2 inch platform), so she'd be the same range as you with no footwear, maybe edging you...but shorter with you wearing a normal shoe.
Princess said on 25/Dec/17
Katy Perry needs an upgrade by at least 0.25 inches minimum.
said on 17/Dec/17
Rob, what happened to height of Katy Perry and Christopher Lee? Katy is now listed as 175 cm (5'8.75"-5'9") and Christopher is 182 cm (5'11.5"-5'11.75"). Google WTF? It is ridiculous!
Editor Rob: there is another christopher lee, and I'm sure their algorithm messed up some of the data between the taller Lee and shorter one.
Mouse22 said on 2/Dec/17
Google seems to have upgraded her from 5'8" to even 5'9". That's strange! Those sites really are clueless. It's always people who actually stood next to her, no matter if heels or not, who figure out her actual height from 5'6" to a 5'7" at the very most.
said on 1/Dec/17
Rob, how tall is she in these massive heels? Click Here
Minky said on 25/Nov/17
She has short legs which gives us the impression that she is short. However, her longer torso ensures she hits the 5'8 mark at least.
Tessa said on 18/Nov/17
I hear that Katy and Miranda Kerr were close friends. I wonder who will be superior in height. Like comments below, I honestly think Katy Perry will edge her out.
Erica said on 8/Nov/17
Katy is deceptively tall.
Backstage said on 8/Nov/17
I've met her about 4 separate times. I am 5'7 1/2.
She's 5'5, or 5'6 max. She's shorter than me while we were both wearing standard shoes with minimal height addition, but not much shorter.
A solid answer is about 5'5.75"
Alexa said on 7/Nov/17
My annual medical stated that I was 172cm barefoot. Katy and myself were identical when I saw her in Mexico whilst on vacation some time back- damn, thought I would be taller than her.
Sacred said on 6/Nov/17
Junior said on 2/Nov/17
Take more look and i don't see her much over 5'6 but high chance she pass for 5'6.25" but at first i thought 5'7 was right.
Anonymous said on 30/Oct/17
Katy is at least 5’6” maybe
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/17
@Milinaka Proof? She's always looked around this height, especially next to Rihanna and Taylor.
Milinaka said on 10/Oct/17
Katy looks shorter for shure than this height listing.
Mouse22 said on 14/Sep/17
I'd just like to know how many of the people who know things like she's 'at least 5'8"' or 'taller than Rihanna' have actually seen her in real life?
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Sep/17
.....but it's true! She has got a lovely rack, and I wouldn't have looked there had it not been mentioned!
It's a rack WELL worth sounding off about! 😄🍐🍐👍
A first class pair, isn't it, Gladstone Screwer? 🍐🍐 🌽😯
I give Katy 5ft7.5!
Slim said on 1/Sep/17
Peter175 said on 30/Aug/17
I predict a 0.25 upgrade.
She's certainly not below 5'7. 171 is my guess. Lovely girl with a nice rack to boot ;)
Too much information.

In her last movie clip called Swish Swish where there is The Mountain and Bill Walton she is described as 5'8"

Agree with you Anonymous- Katy Perry is actually taller than Rihanna and Miranda Kerr if all ladies had to measure barefoot.
Anonymous said on 28/Aug/17
she is definite a 5'8'',or miranda kerr would be just under 170
NIckyMan said on 28/Jul/17
I think she looks as tall as taylor tbh. Taylor always had higher heels

i think 5 foot 6
Slim 182 cm said on 25/Jul/17
5'7 final guess.

legit height = 5'7" , legit weight = 130 lbs
Slim 182 cm said on 20/Jul/17
If perry is 183 in 11.5-12 cm of heels that would make her 171.5 or 171 imo. she's eligible for a quarter inch upgrade.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
I always view Katy as 5'6 and she without heel barefoot on the pool she seem lower like 5'5.5-5'5.75"

Katy Perry is around 5'8- same height as Rihanna when in similar footwear.
Megrace said on 14/Apr/17
More like 5"6
Mouse22 said on 30/Mar/17
@David No worries, I don't constantly check this site or page :)) Yes, you're right, the online exaggerations make her taller than reality, and of course also her high heeled footwear, and in the end many who haven't seen Katy in real life expect her to be at least 5-8 barefoot and then are surprised she's less than that.
Naz said on 10/Mar/17
Katy Perry was barefoot on her tour bus video where it was clear that her head touched the ceiling (5'7)- she had to lower her head to walk through. Miranda Kerr would have walked through with no issues. Remember Katy Perry stood taller than Rihanna poolside a few years back as well.
Naz said on 9/Mar/17
Both Orlando's exes were caught in a pic close to each other outside the Oscars After Party recently. Katy Perry clearly looked taller than Miranda Kerr, even though Miranda had a slight platform on her heels. Angle might have favoured Katy a bit though.
Dom said on 18/Feb/17
Looks pretty much the same height as Rihanna, she's probably 5'7,5".
David said on 30/Jan/17
@evil.witch Excuse me for my almost one year delay in response to your comment to me from Feb. 13, 2016. I was very busy. I suggest that you look at pictures of female celebrities who are about 5'5" and compare the length of their legs to Katy's. You will see that Katy's legs, including her shins, are longer than those women who are about 5'5". I believe that Katy is at least 5'7". Sometimes she has even looked slightly taller than that to me, but a little less than 5'8". Regarding the pic of Katy with Rita Ora that you linked to, I believe that Rita Ora must have been wearing higher heels in that pic than Katy, and Katy probably wasn't wearing heels at all.
David said on 30/Jan/17
@Mouse22 I'm sorry for my almost one year delay in response to your message to me from Feb. 12, 2016. I was very busy. I agree with you that Katy is tall enough. She has a wonderful figure at about 5'7" I think. If people are surprised when they see her in person that she is slightly shorter than they expected, it must be because google and imdb say she is 5'8" (as you indicated). I think Katy is at least 5'7", though 5'7 1/4" is also possible, and a maximum of 5'7 1/2", though probably a bit less than that. I also agree with you that Katy looks good naturally. I think she is naturally pretty, even without make-up. Thank you for sharing your opinions with me, my fellow KatyCat.
height lover said on 17/Jan/17
definetely just 5'7, she and rihanna are the same height.
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jan/17
I don't know from where I read this, but I did! I read that Katy was 5ft9, and I know it was at the time she was on 'the X Factor', which is the very first time I ever saw her speak and be herself and I liked her cheekiness and directness. I had already read a Katy Perry interview and it was very entertaining, so much so in fact, that I was looking forward to seeing her on 'the X Factor'. Let's just say, I wasn't disappointed!
I shall go along with 5ft8, a halfway house between what is written here and what I thought she was! Also, that is the height she says she is!
She can really carry of that strikingly beautiful long, wavy black hair with a height like that, not to mention she has a super-pretty face!
Justine said on 8/Jan/17
Ellen Degeneres always wears sneakers on her show. Both Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr were on her show on various occasions. It is clear that when both were in heels, Katy was much taller than Miranda against Ellen. Katy was also in flats on 1 show, and looked around an inch taller than Ellen... Remember, Julia Roberts was suprisingly the same height as Ellen. Katy Perry 172cm.
Justine said on 30/Dec/16
Carine Roitfeld (ex Vogue chief editor) posed next to both Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry at different events. At the Mademoiselle C party, Miranda was max 2 inches taller than Carine both in heels. Katy Perry stood around 4 inches taller than Carine at 2015 Harpers Bazaar- Katy did have platform heels though. Still think Katy is slightly taller than Miranda barefoot.
mICKEYMOUse said on 30/Dec/16
I met her in elevator; I'm 5"9' in sneaker. She's about the same height or slightly edge me out. She's wearing 1.5 - 2 inches wedged boots. My guess is 5'7 to 5'7.5 barefoot height.
Justine said on 25/Dec/16
Miranda looked taller than Katy Perry by at least 1 inch when they posed together backstage at the Moschino show (as one would expect). However, Miranda had much chunkier footwear at the time. Also, when measured against Orlando Bloom both in flats, Miranda comes up to Orlando's ear, whereas Katy comes up higher... Miranda Kerr 170cm; Katy Perry 171cm
said on 29/Oct/16
Rob,in some photos,she looks 1.5-2 inches shorter than Rihanna(5'8 ish) and she looks more than six inches shorter than Russell Brand(6'1 ish). I think she is 5'6-6.5. You should downgrade her by at least half an inch. Not a command or complain. Just a suggestion.
Editor Rob: sometimes I do think 5ft 6.5 could be on the mark..then other times I thougth 5ft 7 looked ok for her.
kbhart said on 28/Oct/16
Seeing her next to Russell Brand who is 6'1" and wearing 1-1/2" boot heel and she in her 5" heels (conservative heel)...she should be around 6'1"...there is still a good 4" between them. She can't be almost 5'8" in my opinion. My guess is 5'6-1/2".
said on 27/Oct/16
That's true, Rob, looks so often deceive for various reasons - but I've seen a lot of Katy and Ciara pics recently too, from different occasions, and they're definitely one or even two inches apart, they just can't both be 5'7",
Editor Rob: yeah it could be they are a good inch at least different when measured, maybe it is more likely ciara is on the 7.5 mark and Perry a weaker 5ft 7.
Mouse22 said on 26/Oct/16
This is the pic I meant to add, Rob! Photobucket is back on. Katy always looks like that next to 5'8" Elle. Coincidentally I saw another video with her and Ciara, too, in which she's definitely shorter.
said on 26/Oct/16
A question to Rob: Katy's background singer Elle Ball once told me that she's 5'8". But in every picture with Katy, as well as onstage with her, she looks at least 2 inches taller than her, probably more like three. She doesn't wear huge heels, just about the same which Katy wears. They wore the same heels at the premiere of the film Part Of Me, and Katy standing close to Elle looks decidedly shorter; the same in group pictures of other occasions. By the look of it, one has to be wrong about her height - either Elle is taller than she thinks, or Katy has to be shorter than most of us assume.
Katy also seems to be obviously shorter than Ciara, who's said to be 5'7". - What do you think?
Unfortunately, I can't upload any picture, due to some temporary technical problems.
Editor Rob: I'm not sure only 5ft 6, although there is an argument that sometimes she really does look under 5ft 7

I went to HS with her. I also still live in her hometown and see her occasionally out and about every couple of years. I am 5'3 in bare feet and she is not that much taller than I am. I saw her in December of 2015 at a restaurant and we were both in flip flops. She is only about two inches taller than I am. She is not 5'8. There is just no way she is that tall.
truth said on 13/Aug/16
@Mouse22 100% agreed.
Mouse22 said on 13/Aug/16
@JG That doesn't sound like meeting her, more like pestering her. Do ppl really see her unexpectedly somewhere and then say, Can we have a picture? - Why? Did she carry a sign which said 'exotic species, ideal for your Instagram gallery?' As soon as ppl spot a celebrity it seems communication skills and sensibility go out the window.
JG said on 11/Aug/16
She seems to be around 5'6 .
I met her in soho with John Mayer . I asked for a pic and she stood face to face and said sorry we are on vacation while squeezing my shoulder. I am 5'6 and was wearing flip flops , she was wearing chuck Taylor's . We were the same height.
Mouse22 said on 10/Aug/16
@truth A lot of people think making up some theories has to be better than having met somebody in real life, I don't know why that is. Of course you're right, if she's 169 or 170 cm, she'll be one of those and people's wild imaginations or googling the wrong height again won't change that.

Jay said on 23/Mar/16
Hello777, you just proved that Katy is wearing thick soles and Rihanna isn't.
Mouse22 said on 11/Mar/16
@charlie It's a fact that she's 5'7", not more than a small fraction under that if so at all. I have met her, I'm 6'1", I know which shoes she wore and Katy is not 5'3". I know plenty of women who are 5'3" but Katy being 4 inches taller than that is not an unreasonable suggestion. I don't know why she looked like that to you but that impression doesn't change her true height.
charlie said on 7/Mar/16
I saw Katy Perry on Howard Stern. I would say in high heels she is 5 foot 7 inches. without heels she looks 5 foot 3 inches. If you add 5 inch heels to 5 foot 7 you have 6 feet tall. No way she is 6 feet in heels. I am a 5 foot 10 male and I stand very tall without shoes. I would tower over her even with her in heels. She looks about 5 foot 3 inches.
Mouse22 said on 19/Feb/16
@evil.witch Why so aggressive? Did you meet her in real life? I did. Everybody agrees that you can't judge anything from one picture. Rob here is very down to earth and downgrades a lot anyway. Everybody who has seen Katy Perry knows that 5'7" is just about her height, even considering heels and all. She is not 5'5". If you had been around her you wouldn't refer to a random picture again. Both the site owner and I have met her, why don't you read the thread before you randomly make assumptions and try to prove us wrong with a picture of Rita Ora?
Adolfus said on 19/Feb/16
But, evil witch, she isn't 5'5". She's 5'8" whether you like it or not. I don't want to argue with you because I am stating the truth.
said on 13/Feb/16
@David and @Mouse22 I don't know why are you trying to prove that she's taller than she actually is. I mean, I like her too, but unlike you I can live with the fact that she isn't tall. She's 5'5 whether you like it or not. In this picture she's standing with 5'5 Rita Ora and they are exactly the same height.
I don't want to argue with you because I'm just saying the fact. #NoHate
Mouse22 said on 12/Feb/16
@Jerome @David Jennifer and Katy looked rather the same to me, considering that their heels wouldn't be the same. As far as Kesha etc are concerned, that list of taller girls could be endless if you only think of the pop music ones, Iggy Azalea, Rihanna, Adele, Keri Hilson and a lot more - Katy isn't outstandingly tall but rather shorter than many of them, but it's true she's like, 'tall enough'; ppl are only surprised at her real height when they see her because she was somehow exaggerated on websites. But they're often also surprised that she doesn't consist of wigs and makeup but looks good naturally.
David said on 28/Jan/16
@Jerome I agree, Katy looked slightly taller than Jennifer Lawrence on the Golden Globes Red Carpet. Some of it was Katy's hair, the bumpit she told Jennifer Lawrence about, but besides that Katy did look slightly taller. However, Jennifer said she is 5'7 1/2" on her website. Katy must have looked slightly taller because she was wearing higher heels. I don't think Katy is over 5'7 1/2".
Jerome said on 16/Jan/16
Slightly taller than Jennifer Lawrence in recent interview
David said on 10/Jan/16
@Al2013 Well Kesha is a little taller than Katy. Kesha is 5'9" I believe. I think she and Katy are friends. Kesha is in Katy's I Kissed A Girl video from 2008. Actress Elizabeth Hurley seems a bit taller than Katy. Lucy Lawless is taller too. There is also Famke Janssen. I think Katy is tall enough though.
David said on 10/Jan/16
@Mouse22 You're welcome. Your points are interesting, but I think Katy's legs are in beautiful proportion. For example, if you watch her Roar video, you can see she has very beautiful legs and figure. Her legs look very shapely and relatively long in that video. Though you say Katy's legs are proportionally shorter for a woman who is 5'7" - 5'7.5", and it may appear that way comparing her to 5'7.5" Dakota, if Katy is about 5'7" her legs appear in proportion to me. I think Katy has the most beautiful legs I have ever seen, with very shapely thighs. Of course, I appreciate that you gave me your opinion.
Dan said on 10/Jan/16
Rob how tall do you think she is when wearing those purple heels on the picture you posted?
Al203 said on 1/Jan/16
Honestly I haven't seen any pictures of any women being taller than katy except for Taylor and some models
Mouse22 said on 30/Dec/15
@David Thanks for pointing that out, yes, I think they do. I think quite honestly Katy has the slight 'misfortune' to have proportionately short legs for her height. Looking at the proportion between them and her body from her hips onwards it's surprising she even is that tall. She's taller than she looks, viewed from feet to top from a straight angle neither up nor down.
David said on 29/Dec/15
@Mouse22 I agree with you that there is not as much agreement about Katy's exact height unlike some other celebrities like Dakota. But you know since Dakota has long shins she doesn't look less than 5'7.5" to me. In fact, in some pictures Dakota's shins look as long as those of a woman who is 5'8", but we know she is a bit less than that.
On second glance, Dakota's shins usually look not just a bit longer, but significantly longer than Katy's, so under normal circumstances it would seem she is perhaps a half inch taller. Of course, it's also possible that proportionally Dakota has longer shins while she is in fact still only slightly taller than Katy.
David said on 28/Dec/15
@Mouse22 Thank you for your interesting and very detailed post comparing Katy and Dakota's heights. I know what you mean, a well rested Katy after sleeping 8-9 hours might be slightly taller than a tired Dakota. But I would think that Katy being a pop star may have had her exact height after waking up in the morning measured at some point. So I thought Katy would probably know her exact height. Thanks for telling me your story about meeting Katy. It sounds like you had fun.
In pictures that I've seen of Dakota, her shins look a bit longer to me than Katy's. Based on this, since Dakota is 171 cm or 5'7.5", it's possible that Katy is 5'7" or not more than 5'7.25". Would you agree with me that Dakota's legs look a bit longer than Katy's? I was looking at google images of Dakota.
Mouse22 said on 24/Dec/15
I looked up Dakota and found she's listed as 171cm pretty much everywhere, starting here and then comparing. Even google 1st result says that - while google top result of Katy's alleged 173 is clearly a bit exaggerated, probably through Katy's own off chance remark, and then you get that 1 inch variation with Katy throughout the Internet. About some people, there seems to be a common agreement throughout, and with others, like with Katy's, it's messy. Katy's 170cm are 5' and 6.929"; that's such a tiny fraction under the full 7" it's really just a number, nothing which can be seen. And Dakota's 171cm is 5' and 7.323"; she's less than 5'7.5" in fact. A height difference of 1cm IMO doesn't really make a difference. A well rested Katy after her long beauty sleep could be a fraction taller than a tired Dakota on the road after a sleepless night, even if she's statistically a tiny bit taller than Katy, you know what I mean? Another thing is for me that I think Katy probably doesn't know her very exact height either, nobody really can, when I sleep a full night I'm at least 1cm taller in the morning than after a busy day late at night, I tested that even myself.
I couldn't really say a lot more about my travels to concerts, it would be too much for a comment on a celebheights page, but it was early this year, and she shouted at me, ha ha! In the context, she just meant I had to hurry up reaching her with a present I was holding out for her as she had to move on; it wasn't like a big meeting with a long story anyway.
David said on 21/Dec/15
Hi @Mouse22. That's okay. Thank you for sharing how you met Katy, that is interesting and sounded like a lot of fun. When did you meet her? What did she say to you? What event was this that audience members were called onstage? I'm curious.
Yes I heard in an interview this year that Katy sleeps 8-9 hours. That is good for her health. Yes her full height might fluctuate between 5'7.5" and 5'7" depending on how much sleep she gets. I think her height is somewhere in that range. Of course, in a few pictures her shins look a bit longer but in most pictures her shins appear to be the right length for a woman is 5'7 to 5'7.5", not a full 5'8".
Katy is really adorable, cute, and funny in those videos from the early days of her career from 2008, 2009, and 2010. She is still all those things. But I think she is more experienced and may act more mature now than in those videos. Another woman who looks about Katy's height is actress Dakota Johnson. She is 5'7.5", maybe a bit taller than Katy. Do you think they look about the same height?
Mouse22 said on 18/Dec/15
Hi @David Sorry, I'm not here that often and didn't see you asked that twice already - I met her practically onstage with other members of the audience when she wasn't wearing any of the high heels; she only said one sentence to me in particular. Somebody who's about 5'7" but not smaller than that without high heels reaches somewhere between my upper lip and nose, and that's the case with Katy. Keep in mind that off tour and after her preferred 9 hour sleep (in bed, not on a plane) she may be 5-7.5 but during times of daily hard physical activity with 5 hours per night in bed she might be only just 5-7; that morning and evening height thing goes for everybody in the world. So, discussing if she's a half inch more or less makes everybody right and everybody wrong anyway. But funny is only when people watch a video on YouTube for example with barefoot Katy and another woman in stilettos and then claim they know she's 5-5, or something. If you watch those videos of her promoting Prism in Time Square she looks tiny only because she stands in flat boots between two women in stilettos who are 5-9 and 6' barefoot. But that's where people get their ideas from without having seen her IRL.

@Mouse22 I really like that tour bus video too, Katy is very funny and likeable in it. I have seen some of her older videos and really like them too. Katy acts funny and says funny things. She is always beautiful. Yes I think Katy must be 5'7" - 5'7.5". I agree that it seems Katy implied she is 5'7" in the video, but if she was slightly crouching when she turned around and walked away it's possible she might be 5'7 1/4" or at the most 5'7.5". 5'7 1/4" might be possible too.
So you've met Katy and she looked shorter than 5'8"? That makes sense. I think 5'8" women have shins a little bit longer than Katy. Where did you meet Katy?
David said on 4/Dec/15
Rob I watched the video again and this time I wasn't so sure that Katy wasn't crouching a little bit when she turned her back. She has good posture, and in that scene her back seemed possibly a bit rounded. One poster on the youtube video thinks Katy was kind of bending. I have doubt now as to whether she is 5'7" or just slightly more, maybe 5'7 1/2". I'm not sure now.

@David I love that video, just like all the older videos with Katy at the start of her career! It was done before the media paid a lot of attention to her and also started to describe her as a 'very tall' woman for some reason. That revealing second in the video really points to 5'7" - 5'7.5" (give or take that half an inch between her in flats and the ceiling there, and it really doesn't make much of a difference). I can also confirm that I was one of the people who were surprised how 'short' she was, being used to the media exaggerations. Generally, in videos I've seen Katy with female interviewers and stars who made her look tiny, and also with female celebs whom Katy totally dwarfed. That's typical for somebody who's 5'7" which is neither super tall nor small. During one award show she stood next to Adriana Karembeu in very high heels and barely reached her chin, in other videos and pictures she towers over every other female, it's impossible to estimate somebody's height from those things - but Katy's implicit statement in the bus tour video is what seems really the most reliable to go by.
David said on 2/Dec/15
Rob I watched that scene in the video I linked to of Katy in the tour bus again and on second thought it actually looks like she may be slightly bending or crouching when she turns her back to the camera and walks away. Do you think she is slightly bending? This makes me think that 5'7 1/2" is still possible for her. There was a poster on the youtube video who thinks Katy was kind of bending which caused me to question whether Katy is 5'7" again.
David said on 28/Nov/15
Yes I think you're right Rob, it sounds like Katy is saying she is 5'7". She did not have to crouch due to the ceiling of the bus, and she seems to indicate that if she were any taller, in other words more than 5'7", she would have to crouch. The ceiling of the bus seems just over her head, so she must be 5'7". Once again Rob I want to give you a lot of credit for believing Katy is 5'7", and to others who also thought that like Greek KatyCat. For KatyCats and any others who are interested, there is a brief clip of this video in Katy's Part of Me movie where she says the bus is amazing. The video is from 2008. The reason I thought she might be 5'7 1/2" is because of the 2009 article where she said she is 5'8", so I thought that Katy rounded up her height. I did think 5'7" is possible too. Since Katy is 5'7", I think this is why some people who see Katy in person are surprised that she looks shorter than they expected because they must have expected 5'8", which is what google and imdb list her as.

So if you watch the video of Katy I linked which indicates that she is 5'7", you will see that those people who thought she is 5'7" did a great job of estimating her height and deserve credit, like Rob, Greek KatyCat, and others.
Editor Rob: it sounds like a kind of admission to 5ft 7.
said on 26/Nov/15
Rob, Greek KatyCat, and others who think Katy is 5'7" seem to be right. I found this funny video with Katy on youtube where she is in a tour bus and she indicates that if she were taller than 5'7" the height of the ceiling of the bus above her would cause a problem. The ceiling is just above her head, so she looks 5'7". Katy seems to indicate she is 5'7" just shortly after 2:35 in the video. Katy's shins look a little shorter than women who are 5'8" but since she said in a 2009 interview that she is 5'8", I guessed she might be 5'7 1/2". I thought 5'7" is possible as well and that she is at least 5'7", but not more than 5'7 1/2'. I believed her height was in that range. This video from 2008 seems to indicate that she is exactly 5'7". For those who thought she is 5'7", great job. Here is the video: Click Here

@NoHonestly You're looking at a Seinfield picture, and deduct she's inches shorter than she is? I and other people looked at her in real life, Katy is inches taller than your estimate, like Rob I'd say 5'7". I know what shoes she wore, I know how tall I am and how tall somebody in front of me is.
Allie said on 15/Nov/15
Oops I meant 183-184 cm in dress shoes.
Adolfus said on 15/Nov/15
Sorry, folks, but Katy Perry definitely is 5-foot-8.
Allie said on 13/Nov/15
Also, Katy Perry in her Thinking of You music video was slightly taller than Matt Dallas in heels (I think it was him) whose around 181-182 cm tall in dress shoes. So she's at least close to 5'7.
Allie said on 9/Nov/15
NoHonestly, well I'm gonna go with Rob's guess of 5'11 and if he's wearing dress shoes that add about an inch I assume, then that would mean that he's like 6'0. I assume those 5 inch platforms mean the heels 5 inches, which would give her around 4 inches of height give or take. So depending on how much they give and what Jerry Steinfield's real height is, that equates to a strong 5'8 or closer to 5'7. Though with Rihanna and T-Swift she looks 5'6-7.
No way is Katy as short as 5'4.
NoHonestly said on 7/Nov/15
Next to 5ft 10 or 5ft 11 Jerry Seinfield this week, shes the exact same height as him in 5 inch platforms. So Katy is a Maximum height of 5ft5 however i am thinking more 5ft 4.

5'7 for a girl is like 6'1 for a guy
nah, it's more like 6' for a guy.
One Croatian singer mentioned that, while on a tour in the California, ran across Katy Perry and she claimed to be taller than Katy. She's 5'4. Even with heels and Katy Perry wearing converse she still wouldn't be taller. So dellusional LMAO.

Katy Perry is 5 feet 7 inches (170.2 cm) tall.
David said on 8/Oct/15
Just wanted to clarify that the average white American woman is about five five. Precisely she is 163 to 164 centimeters, which is about 64.2 to 64.6 inches (the latter is about five five). The average white American man is 177 centimeters which is almost five ten (about five ten). 177 centimeters is 69.685 inches. It's all on google search.
David said on 7/Oct/15
@Mouse22 Yes Katy is very beautiful and has a tremendous figure. I'm glad you adore Katy, I adore her too. We're KatyCats. But I think she has long legs compared to the average American woman who is five five. There are taller women with longer legs than Katy, but my point is that Katy's legs are longer than average. Her legs look long to me when she is performing on stage and in music videos.
You are definitely right that Katy is at least five seven and more than five six. Partly based on her shin length, I estimate she is anywhere from five seven to five seven and a half.
When did you meet Katy? What was she like? I think her personality is funny and nice.
Mouse22 said on 3/Oct/15
@Allie I get what you say, but having stood next to her I do know 5'6" is a wrong guess, because she's taller than that. She may be half an inch over 5'7", but not 5'6". It does make a difference if I've seen somebody in real life because I'm 6'1" and with a good enough eye to see she's taller than just one inch above average.
Mouse22 said on 1/Oct/15
@David Don't get me wrong, she's ravishingly beautiful with an awesome figure and sure I adore her, but - long legs? No, that's one thing she hasn't. Again, I've met her, I know what she looks like in real.
David said on 21/Sep/15
To further my point, it's possible that Katy rounded up from five seven and a half to five eight when she gave her height in that article from 2009. I think she's more likely five seven and a half than five seven, since she said she's five eight. She has a wonderful figure and long, shapely legs. Other attractive celebrities who were or are about five eight are Jane Fonda and Elizabeth Hurley. Both of those actresses said they are five eight.
David said on 20/Sep/15
I think she could be five seven and a half, since she said she is five eight. I agree that she has to be at least five seven. She has long legs. But since she said she's five eight, I would believe five seven and a half. That's about five eight.
Allie said on 6/Sep/15
168-170 is my guess. She only looks shorter probably cause of her legs. I mean with Rihanna she doesn't look that much shorter.
Mouse, these are all guesses. Some are more accurate than others. You meeting her means jack squat as well unless you measure her. Or you take a picture and tell us the specifics so we can make an even more accurate guess. So your's is a guess as well. If someone thinks that she's like 5'6 so be it I guess. But if they have no proof.. well that's another story.
Mouse22 said on 28/Aug/15
@Josh1 The thing is, I've met her, and that's different, Rob is definitely more accurate than all the picture and video guesses, anything under 5'7" is just too short an estimate. She's not that short.
Josh1 said on 23/Aug/15
5'9 Diego Luna has 3 inches on her so 5'6 maybe 5'6.5
Mouse22 said on 20/Jul/15
@ches Yes, there's a number of pics from that occasion (when Katy took her grandmother to a Grammy show) - Katy and Britney are in heels; those may not be of exactly the same height, but a 3 inch difference is just about right. Although Katy is not quite as tall as she's rumoured to be, as I saw
when close to her, 5'7" is still her most likely height.
