Oh look, Katy Perry’s launching her own record label. But don’t worry, YouTube isn’t about to screw her over, because it’s an imprint of Universal’s Capitol Records, to which she herself is signed, so she’ll get a gold-plated invite to Google’s Faceless-Corporates-Unite cheese and wine bash. Phew.

According to the Associated Press, the new label venture is called Metamorphosis Music and she has already signed to it LA-based pop singer songwriter Ferras, who has a five song eponymous EP out this week. Now, he was already signed to Capitol, but I’m sure this isn’t just a ruse to sell Ferras’s records to Perry fans as he supports her on an upcoming US tour.
