Katy Perry Backs Education: 'Knowledge Is Power, Especially For Females'

As Katy Perry returns stateside to kick off the North American leg of her Prismatic World Tour, she's reflecting on the hard work that got her here and preparing to pay it forward.

"I'm an American girl that had a dream, executed a dream, came from nothing - and that really is the American dream," Perry said. "I'm happy to be that example and hopefully inspire other people to do that."

Perry helped present a $1 million donation Thursday from Staples Inc. to support teacher projects during the upcoming school year.
