The renowned American singer-songwriter, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, popularly known as Katy Perry, said that she has learnt to accept different layers of sexuality from a very young age amidst her religious upbringing.
"When I was growing up, homosexuality was synonymous with the word 'abomination' and 'Hell', a place of gnashing of teeth, continuous burning of skin and probably Mike Pence's ultimate guest list for a BBQ." Said Perry.
"So, most of my unconscious adolescence, I prayed the gay away at my Jesus camps. But then in the middle of it all, in a twist of events, I found my gift. And my gift introduced me to people outside my bubble, and my bubble started to burst." She added.
Katy Perry also added that when she grew up her whole perception about homosexuality changed and she found homosexual people to be more free and inclusive.
"These people were nothing like I'd been taught to fear. They were the most free, strong, kind and inclusive people I had ever met... Oh my goddess, what a revelation - and not the last chapter of the Bible," Perry said.
Katy Perry also said that by the medium of her songs as like I Kissed A Girl, she has tried to speak the truth and paint her fantasies.
"I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-sized pop songs". Stated Katy Perry.
