Katy Perry Blocked Her Parents from Going to President Obama’s Inauguration

Facebook

Katy Perry’s parents are evangelical preachers so it’s no surprise that they’re conservative Republicans. In the new issue of “Marie Claire“, Katy says that when they heard she was singing at President Obama’s most recent inauguration back in January, they wanted to go. She says, quote, “They didn’t vote for Obama . . . [but] they were like, ‘We can come!’ And I was like, ‘No, you can’t.’ They understood, but I was like, ‘How dare you?’ in a way.”

It’s no secret she’s come a long way from her days Katheryn Hudson, daughter to born-again preacher Keith and his wife Mary Perry Hudson. And though she’s completely separated herself from her parents culturally and politically, they remain close. “People don’t understand that I have a great relationship with my parents—like, how that can exist,” she said. “There isn’t any judgment. They don’t necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything they do. They’re at peace with—they pray for me is what they do.”

Perry also doesn’t associate herself with one religion. “I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God,” she revealed. “I pray all the time—for self-control, for humility. There’s a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying ‘thank you’ sometimes is better than asking for things.”
