Remember how I told you all that Katy Perry‘s Mom, Mary Perry Hudson was shopping around a book about how hard it was trying to run a ministry when you’re daughter’s a pop star? Well, parts of the book’s proposal have leaked onto the web, and of course, it’s chock full of that good old fashion hyper-religious crazy that can only come with ignoring empirical scientific evidence in favor of a book that says God will set you on fire for all of eternity if you dare wear polyblend.
In the full proposal obtained by Page Six, she describes her horror at Katy’s outfits: Backstage at a concert, “Katy stepped out from behind the changing doors in a tiny risqué costume. No mother wants to see the top of her daughter’s boobs … My first instinct was to order her back behind those doors and demand she put something else on … However, I had no problem letting my eyebrows say what I wouldn’t allow my mouth to utter.”
Mary also writes that she hopes Katy is destined to be a worship leader — “a Kathryn Kuhlman type of healer … “I recognized the psalmist gift in her performance. Yet she sang out, ‘I kissed a girl, and I liked it,’ while thousands joined her. One part of my heart soared … the other part broke for the thousands of hungry souls being fed something that didn’t nourish their spirit, but fed their flesh.”
Mary also frets, “Oh, dear God, how can I save her from all this? The money, the fame, the network, the people surrounding her, how can I compete?” SOURCE
Yeah, how are you going to convince your daughter that speaking in tongues for spare change is a more realistic and financially viable option than perfectly harmless pop songs for millions of dollars? Before anyone accuses me of coming down on the religious hard here, I grew up Irish Catholic here, and just for kicks, I attended a Jesuit High School. I have no qualms with anyone believing anything (I still consider myself a Christian here), but I do have a problem with people exploiting those beliefs for an easy buck, and that’s exactly what this bitch is doing: She’s wringing Christians for all they’ve got here while double-dipping the badness by also exploiting her daughter. And while the Bible doesn’t really have anything against this (in fact, Mary could sell Katy Perry into slavery and you’d be able to find a passage giving her the okay), I do believe God isn’t too keen on opportunistic assholes.
