Katy Perry has a ''good relationship'' with her parents.

The 28-year-old singer was previously branded a ''devil child'' by her Christian father, Keith Hudson, after he disapproved of the lyrics in her hit song 'I Kissed A Girl', but the brunette beauty believes that despite her family's negative comments, she still has a strong bond with them.

Speaking to the new UK issue of ELLE magazine, she said: ''I have a good relationship with them. It could be better but it's the same dynamic as most people.

''We love our parents but we're annoyed by them. I respect what they have done for me. I was brought up surrounded by morality and integrity and that can only be a good thing.''

The 'Wide Awake' hitmaker was brought up in a strict Christian household and previously revealed she struggles to read as she didn't ''go to school much'' due to her family constantly moving around the US when she was a child.

She said previously: ''I have a problem reading ... I wasn't going to great schools, because my parents didn't believe in public education. They wanted the education to be influenced by their religion, so I was going to these halfway education-slash-Christian schools that were like pop-up shop-style education.''
