ICYDK: Perry was raised in an extremely religious household.
In a new interview with Vogue, Katy Perry said she used to protest (“picketed”) outside Marilyn Manson concerts.
Related interview excerpt can be read in full below.
“We knew about Madonna and Marilyn Manson in my family because we picketed their concerts.” At a Manson concert in Santa Barbara, she handed out pamphlets titled How to Find God. She ended up going in to watch the performance with her youth pastor and, to her surprise, found it “really interesting and weird—I got it. But my house was church on Sunday morning, church on Sunday night, church on Wednesday evening; you don’t celebrate Halloween; Jesus gives you your Christmas presents; we watch Bill O’Reilly on TV. That was my whole childhood and youth and early teens. I still have conditioned layers dropping off of me by the day.” Vogue
We found it particularly interested that she went into the show and ‘understood’ what Manson was doing. *Giving someone a chance!*
