She is now known as one of pop’s most provocative performers, wearing typically outrageous costumes on tour.

But back in 2001, Katy Perry was a shy 17-year-old trying to make it as a singer on the Christian rock scene.

In previously unreleased footage posted by Buzzfeed, a young Katy is seen being interviewed by cameraman Jim Standridge who had been commissioned by Perry’s then record label to make a short documentary of the star.

Unlike the confident personality she now possesses, Katy is seen looking nervous as she continually plays with her hair while discussing her stage fright.

She also reveals she ‘puts on a lot of make-up before the show, because I’m a pizza face’.

The interview is inter-cut with stage performances, showing Perry singing and playing guitar with just a drummer as back-up on stage.
