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
"I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into these little
bite-sized pop songs". Stated Katy Perry.
