What separates the casual Katy Perry fans from her ride or dies? Rooted in themes of Christianity and the trials of growing up, the track project sees a young Katy dabbling in the rock, contemporary Christian and jazz genres with a youthful edge that calls to mind Alanis Morissette and Fiona Apple. It remains christian if this is true, but considering the fact that the project was sent to radio and supported with a tour under a relatively size-able label, we think this famous stat deserves a bit more research. For one, Perry changed her stage name, a clear that she wanted to abandon elements of her katy in favor of a more mainstream audience. I hated that, it was too hudson for me, so I decided to be someone else. Regardless of your opinion on the album, fans can agree that the Katy Hudson era spawned some priceless content giving a rare glimpse at the then year old.
Pop star Katy Perry has had a long and sometimes painful spiritual and creative journey. Katy, who is the daughter of two Californian pastors, left home when she was 15 years old to pursue her music career. In she recorded an album of Christian songs under the name Katy Hudson.
She said, "I was one of those kids going to camp and every time there was an alter call I was there. I'm a pastor's kid so I grew up knowing about Christ and Christianity and stuff like that.
We welcome your opinions but libellous and abusive comments are not allowed.
I didn't actually make it my own until I was going through a process when I was It's becoming a more personalised faith to me daily because I actually realised that my parents weren't my salvation and they weren't the ones that were going to be judged and just because they're Christians and katies doesn't make me shiny and new. Salvation is for everyone but you have to make it a personal choice. I came to a realisation that I'm believing not because it's been thrown in my face all of these years.
So christian I just have adopted it as my own faith and grown out of hudson mode of letting it be a family tradition. I knew that God had been knocking on the door for quite a while and God was the only one that truly understands me completely because I'm such an outcast and a kooky little, funky person.
Katy began working in the mainstream music world and, inmet up with the manager who was to give her an entirely different pop music persona. But as CBN News recently reported, the more fame she won, the more she let go of her Christian faith. She told therapist Siri Singh that the inner battle between her true identity as Katheryn Hudson her birth name and her pop star identity as Katy Perry drove her to depression and suicide.
She said she struggled with a lot of shame during her low and suicidal points in her life. Ultimately, she believes it was the grace of God that pulled her out of her depression.
She even wrote a song about it. Recently, Katy gave an interview to Vogue Australia. She said, "My mum has prayed for me my entire life, hoping I'd come back to God. I never left him, I was just a little bit secular, I was more materialistic and more career-driven. But now that I'm in my 30s, it's more about spirituality and heart wholeness.
It's a combination of compassion, humility, sternness and refusal. He is rebel - a rebel for Jesus.
Perry travelled to Rome last April to give a speech about the health benefits of mediation at a conference organised by the Pontifical Council for Culture. She took her mother, who was raised Catholic, and actor Orlando Bloom with her. It's so beautiful and humbling to re-centre in a place where it's not about anything else but reconnecting with the divine. We are committed to protecting your privacy.
