Singer Katy Perry’s mother, Mary Perry Hudson is hot and cold about her pop star daughter’s career moves and decisions.
Hudson, a devout Christian, is shopping around a book about how her Billboard chart topping daughter has affected the family’s Christian ministry, admitting that she’s proud of Katy but “disagrees with a lot of choices she makes in her career,” reports the New York Post.
Page Six received Hudson’s book proposal, which focuses on her perspective of Katy’s profession.
“Mary and Keith Hudson have been Christian Evangelists long before the world every [sic] heard of Katy Perry,” the proposal reads.
Katy’s career skyrocketed after the release of her 2008 single, “I Kissed a Girl,” which chronicles the singer’s experiences with smooching other females. Katy, a voluptuous individual, soon began wearing outfits that highlighted her curves and lady lumps. The “Firework” singer also started dating sex-addict comedian, Russell Brand, to whom she’s now married. Before tying the knot with the “Forgetting Sarah Marshal” actor, Katy spoke disparagingly her Christian upbringing, comparing it to “Jesus Camp” and recalling speaking in tongues.
Katy, who comes from a highly religious family, went unnoticed when she first entered the music industry. She released a gospel album in 2001.
“Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as ‘Pass the salt’ . . . It’s a secret, direct prayer language to God,” Perry told the Rolling Stone last year. “My dad speaks in tongues and my mom interprets it . . . I wasn’t ever able to say I was lucky because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed. Deviled eggs were called ‘angeled’ eggs.”
Hudson’s proposal, which is not meant to bash Katy, continues, “Amid a torrent of negative reports from tabloid magazines and entertainment shows, Mary Hudson wants to tell ‘her story’ and dispel a lot of rumors. Katy’s success has impacted her ministry in both negative and positive ways.”
