'Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D' opens in theaters this week (you can watch the trailer here) and to help celebrate, we take a look back through Katy Perry's colorful career our favorite way possible: with Katy Perry GIFs.

Katy Perry's career and music lends itself to animated GIFs extremely well. What with the on-stage antics, the costumes, the color, the goofiness and, oh yeah, her natural, um, talents... they all make for great GIFfing.

So join us as we host a retrospective on the career of Katy Perry in animated GIF format.
