Katy Perry revealed her mother prayed her whole life the singer would “come back to God” and said she’s now focused on “spirituality and heart wholeness” while in her 30s.
In a Vogue Australia interview published Tuesday, Perry, 33, said her parents were not big fans of her 2008 hit “I Kissed a Girl.”“My mom has prayed for me my entire life, hoping I’d come back to God,” Perry said. “I never left Him, I was just a little bit secular, I was more materialistic and more career-driven.”
The singer said now that she’s in her 30s, she’s evolved to become “more about spirituality and heart wholeness.” Her change comes after she met Pope Francis in April with her mother and boyfriend Orlando Bloom. Perry was in Vatican City during the “United to Cure” international conference.
Perry said Tuesday she’s been a “big fan” of the pope.
“It’s a combination of compassion, humility, sternness and refusal. He is rebel – a rebel for Jesus,” Perry told the magazine. “He is bringing the Church back to humility and connecting with people. He’s very humble and not frivolous.”
