Katy Perry's Christian parents do not approve of the sexually suggestive lyrics of her new single "Bon Appetit," but she said they respect each other's beliefs and agree to disagree on issues such as this, the Hollywood pop star said in an interview.
When Perry launched her 2008 hit song "I Kissed a Girl," her minister father Keith Hudson admitted that he thought his three-decade ministry was going to come to an end, but then, it "never had a problem" with it at all.
When asked what her parents thought of the sexually suggestive lyrics of her new track "Bon Appetit," Perry said her family always reacts with love and respect to each other's differing beliefs, The Daily Mail relays.
"The thing about it is, which is such a weird thing, to really understand we agree to disagree but still with loving space," Perry told Nova's Smallzy's Surgery in an interview. "We all come from different places ... you can have your belief system, nobody is telling you to not believe your beliefs but you can also come from a space of love."
She later on added, "That's what my family and I exercise all the time."
Perry also talked about the details of her "Bon Appetit" music video, which featured Migos and showed her being prepared as a tasty dish for cannibalistic diners. She revealed that the story took an unexpected turn, with the diners being forced to watch her doing a pole dance and later on being eaten by her character.
In an interview that Vogue published in April, Perry confessed that she was the "black sheep" in their family of evangelical Christians. The pop star said they were sheltered from the modern world and were not even "allowed to interact with gay people."
Moreover, Perry recalled how they looked up to Amy Grant like Madonna and picketed Marilyn Manson's concerts. She also admitted that she was so immersed in the church ministry that she is still shedding off "conditioned layers" each day until now.
