With 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.
