Yesterday, pop songstress Katy Perry released her fifth studio album Witness. The album is preceded by the single "Bon Appetit." The song is a dance-pop song with sexual double entendres involving food. It was released on April 28, 2017, as the second single from her fifth studio album, Witness. An accompanying music video followed on May 12, 2017, and features Perry being prepared and served by chefs as a meal.
Though the song has had been warmly accepted by fans and radio, it didn't go well with Perry's evangelical Christian parents.The acclaimed pop star was asked how her devoutly Christian parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, reacted to the dance track. "The thing about it is, which is such a weird thing, to really understand we agree to disagree but still with loving space," Perry reportedly told the Nova's Smallzy's Surgery radio show this week, according to Daily Mail.
"We all come from different places... you can have your belief system, nobody is telling you to not believe your beliefs but you can also come from a space of love. That's what my family and I exercise all the time."
In an interview posted by Charisma magazine last month, Perry's mother, Mary, spoke about some of the criticism she receives for her daughter's choices that don't fall in line with her Christian upbringing.
"I get a lot of negative vibes," Hudson said. "People ask us, 'How could you have a daughter like that?'"
In the face of criticism, the Hudsons have asked people to pray for their daughter.
"I want you to pray for my daughter," Perry's father, Keith, previously said when he spoke at the Church of Grace in Yorba Linda, California, last year, according to Radar Online. "Don't judge her, pray for her."
