The always-controversial Katy Perry has responded to rumours of parental criticism. The young starlet, who sings, “I kissed a girl,” is frequently making headlines for her racy image. But the real controversy is related to the friction between Katy and her parents.
Specifically, Perry’s mother, Mary Hudson, is an evangelical Christian preacher who allegedly told The Daily Mail that her daughter’s music is ‘shameful and disgusting’.
In the same interview, Hudson noted, “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.”
This week, Katy responded by telling MTV news that the quote was actually “false information”. She noted, “They love and support me.”
Regardless, Katy Perry will continue setting the globe on fire with her racy lyrics. If anything, the controversy simply adds to the hype that is making her famous.
