Mary Perry Hudson, mother of pop star Katy Perry is shopping for a publisher for her book based on how Katy Perry has betrayed her Christian roots.
Perry’s parents are Christian preachers and even though they are proud of their daughter, they are not proud of everything that she does or has done. Her mother doesn’t agree with Perry’s risqué costumes and her showing too much cleavage. Perry’s mother is proud of her daughters singing talent and recognizes that she has a beautiful voice. But she feels that Katy Perry has betrayed her Christian roots in the lyrics that she sings and the way that she dresses. The song I Kissed a Girl is one of several that has her parents upset.
Mary Perry Hudson wants to publish a book about the life choices that Katy Perry has made and how they have affected the family’s Christian ministry. Perry’s mother says that it has impacted her in both positive and negative ways. She ensures that the book isn’t about Christian proselytizing or a tell-all about her daughter. It is a book to set the record straight about the family that Perry comes from and the impact of Katy Perry’s choices on her family.
Perry’s mother talks about how her daughters lyrics make her feel: “One part of my heart soared… the other part broke for the thousands of hungry souls being fed something that didn’t nourish their spirit, but fed their flesh. Oh, dear God, how can I save her from all this? The money, the fame, the network, the people surrounding her, how can I compete?”
The song I Kissed A Girl in her mother’s eyes promotes homosexuality and is a sin. The message is shameful and she says Katy knows how her family feels on the subject. They are disappointed in her but continue to pray for Katy that she will find salvation.
