Katy Perry's Parents Want You to Pray for Their Daughter

by at .

Katy Perry is one of the most successful female artists on the planet.

She's managed to stay relevant ever since the release of her hit single, "I Kissed A Girl" way back in 2008. 

Her parents, Keith and Mary Hudson are deeply religious and recently lifted the lid on how they really felt about their daughter.

They revealed crazy information about the family across two packed services at the Church of Grace in Yorba Linda, California on July 17 and 18. 

It isn't news that the both Keith and Mary have been embarrassed by their daughter's past. You only need to look at some of her music videos to find out why. 

They even chimed in on her feud with Taylor Swift.

"Don't judge her, pray for her," they implored.

Okay then. 

Her mother also addressed Perry's new single, "Rise." 

"She [Katy] released a new song called 'Rise.' It says, 'My feet have been put to the fire but I will rise.' That's what she's about right now."

Could this mean that the singer's new material will be less racy than past efforts? 

Keith noted that he recently spoke to Perry and even talked about the lyrics of the track. 

"If you listen to this new song you know it ain't over yet. She talks about some things. She's good."

"I want you to pray for my daughter," he added. "Don't judge her, pray for her. She's going to be singing Rise for the Olympics this year. We're very proud of it and her."

It all sounds pretty bizarre. 

At least we know that they like the new song more than her first big hit.

"We certainly like it more than 'I Kissed A Girl,'" he said of her new music. "When 'I Kissed A Girl' came out we thought about moving to Venezuela because of the shame."

Perry's mom added: "We were going to save [former Venezuelan President who died in 2013] Hugo Chavez but it's too late for that now."

Keith took things one step further and commented on his days in the 1960s, taking drugs. 

"I looked like John the Baptist coming out of the woods but I wasn't eating locusts, baby. My candy was LSD! I was taking it like candy."

Did anyone expect anything like this to come out? It came pretty much out of the left field. 

Basically, they wanted to let us know that there was time they were ashamed of their daughter, but not now. 

What do you think about it all?
