Remember when Katy Perry's pastor parents claimed her divorce was a gift from God? Well, that comment looks innocuous compared to the latest from Perry's dad, Keith Hudson: The Sun claims that, in his traveling sermons around the US, he plays a video calling his daughter a "devil child" and asks congregations to pray for her "healing." He also describes attending one of her concerts, and it does not sound like it was a pleasant experience for him.
"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 almost looked like church," said Hudson at a California church. "I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They're loving and worshiping the wrong thing." He also noted that some have criticized him over his daughter's choice of career: "They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?"
