Quite unlike her current over-the-top fashion sense and lyrics replete with sexual innuendos, Katy Perry had a very strict and conservative upbringing. Both her parents, Maurice Keith Hudson and Mary Christine Perry, were pastors and she was not allowed to listen to pop music or rock music.
Even television music channels such as MTV and VH1 were closed to her. She could listen to gospel music, but she received exposure to pop music through CDs borrowed from friends. Her parents were also very poor, and often the family used food stamps or ate from the food bank of the church.
At the young age of 9, Perry started taking singing lessons after her parents discovered her vocal skills. They also included her in their ministry and she used to sing in church. When she turned 13, she was gifted her first guitar. This was when she publicly performed songs that she wrote.
