Uh-oh! Katy Perry’s evangelical Christian parents are none to pleased with their daughter’s raunchy Summer anthem, “I Kissed A Girl.” While the smash single made Perry an instant international pop starlet, Keith and Mary Hudson say Katy’s faux-lesbian banger promotes a lifestyle that their faith tells them is an abomination.
(Katy uses her mother’s maiden name as her stage name.)
“Katy is our daughter and we love her but we strongly disagree with how she is conducting herself at the moment. We cannot cut her out of our lives as she is our child but she knows we disagree strongly with what she is doing and the message she is promoting regarding homosexuality which the Bible clearly states is a sin,” Mary told the Daily Mail on Saturday.
“I hate the song. It clearly promotes homosexuality and its message is shameful and disgusting,” Mary added with disgust.
Keith, who describes himself as a “healer,” believes Katy, 23, has been led astray by the music industry.
“Katy is not a homosexual but I fear she has been led astray by the Hollywood crowd. I pray all the time that God will work through her and help her find salvation,” her mother insists.
“Katy knows how I feel. We are a very outspoken family and she knows how disappointed her father and I are. I can’t even listen to that song. The first time I heard it I was in total shock. When it comes on the radio I bow my head and pray.”
