In her latest concert movie Katy Perry: Part of Me, the extra footage includes clips of her religious parents discussing her early days in pop and her apparent rebellion. The former Mrs Russell Brand explains that many people assume it caused a rift in the family, with her father being a pastor, when she launched onto the scene as a teenager with the racy single 'I Kissed A Girl (And I Liked It).'
MTV have hosted a preview of the 3D concert Dvd, which features her dad explaining that her pop career has never posed a problem for the Hudson (Katy's real surname) family. "I was a little concerned, yeah, 'cause I thought my ministry after 30-something years is over. But, you know what? Never had a problem." Her sister Angela was apprehensive, too, when she learned about the song that Katy had chosen as her debut single. "When Katy decided that 'I Kissed a Girl' was going to be her first single, I said, 'Have you told mom and dad?'" her sister reveals in the Dvd clip. "And she said, 'No, but can you?
Despite her fears, her career took off and the family stayed together. Katy insists that - despite the rumors - her 'good girl gone bad' image has never had a bad effect on family life. "I think people love the idea of 'a good girl gone bad. And they think my parents have disowned me, but that's not the story at all."
