Katy Perry Reveals Surprisingly Conservative Past

0503_katy_smallinsetWith her bold outfits and sexy music videos, you may be surprised to learn about Katy Perry's conservative upbringing.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the daughter of evangelical ministers get candid about her childhood, or as she says, her lack of one.

Perry tells Vanity Fair her mother never read her any books other than the Bible, and words like "deviled eggs" and "Dirt Devil" were prohibited in her home. Secular music, the type she performs today, was also banned.

Now that she's older, Perry says that her relationship with her parents has changed. "We coexist. I don’t try to change them anymore, and I don’t think they try to change me. We agree to disagree. They’re excited about [my success]."

The magazine also asked her about her other major relationship -- the one with new husband Russell Brand.

Perry says there's "never a dull moment" in their marriage, and even laughs off the infamous photo that Brand took of her in bed without makeup (see the photo here). Some gossip sites reported she was furious it leaked, but Perry says otherwise. “I didn’t really care. I mean, when I go to rehearsals I look like that. I’m every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am…. You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele.”

She may not wake up looking like Gisele, but the pop star sure knows how to pop a sultry cover pose. For more of Perry's interview, including her views on religion, click here or pick up the latest issue of Vanity Fair on newsstands nationwide May 10.

all it takes is one expensive boob job to turn any good looking church girl into a pop or movie star.

and if you let them do that, then I bet they figure ph$%ck God! Everyone's looking at my breasts and I'm famous!

Suppose that's better than church for most.

There's nothing surprising about her conservative past than the fact that some people are still amazed by the double standard in America. She would be paid nothing in this life but appreciation from her children had she not dressed up like that that she is in that picture and shown half her boobs and mostly the rest of her body. And who needs her to dress like that so we can pay her so much?
Men. Double standard..... Supply meets demand, folks.
So, men- always in the business of turning innocent church girls into soft porn hussies.

Sex sells, she used to sing christian music too and I guess that did not get her anywhere,then she came out with I kissed a girl and now she is a star. She is a great example of how the media portrays everything today. That is nothing new of course and nothing will change.

Old news. This was out when she first became popular.

Her parents are hypocrites. They are proud of her success peddling things they once banned? It would be like me telling my kids smoking cigarettes are bad and then they become the spokesperson for marlboro and me being all right on kiddo!

And really, I cannot stand this girl. She is cute. She can sing-ish. She has absolutely no originality.

I like the two of her songs that got air-play.

But, this girl is plain-looking and not very attractive at all.
