She kissed a girl, and he didn’t like it. Pop singer Katy Perry’s father revealed his disapproval of the singer’s lifestyle during a recent worshipping session, the Sun reported Thursday.
The 28-year-old singer’s father, Keith Hudson, allegedly telling members of a Sante Fe Springs, Calif., congregation recently that his daughter is a “devil child” who needs “healing.” An unidentified source at “The Urgency Tour” event stated that Hudson said for those in attendance to “pray for Katy.”
“They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” said Hudson of Keith Hudson Ministries, who admitted attending the singer’s sell-out concerts are a source of contention for him and his wife, fellow religious preacher, Mary Hudson.
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation, and they were going at it. It was almost like church,” Keith said. “I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.”
According to a source, after the service, the Hudson family allegedly asked for donations from attendees to help fund the couple’s upcoming trip to Switzerland after the completion of their American church star speaking tour, telling viewers they needed “not one or two dollars, but 20s.”
