Grammys 2013: Katy Perry



Keith Hudson and wife Mary Perry - who are devout Pentecostal pastors - are currently touring US churches.

He allegedly asks visitors to "pray for Katy", as she needs "healing" following her successful pop music career.

Speaking in Santa Fe Springs, California, Keith reportedly said: "They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?

"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.

"I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They're loving and worshipping the wrong thing."

Perry's parents allegedly ask their congregation for donations to their cause, requesting "not one or two dollars, but 20s" so they can visit Switzerland.

Katy Perry recently confirmed that she is "halfway through" recording her follow-up album to 2010's Teenage Dream.
