London, July 14 (ANI): Katy Perry has said that she inked her worldwide hit track “I Kissed A Girl” to rebel against her strict religious parents.
The American singer, who was raised by an evangelical Christian preacher mother, revealed that she was banned from swearing during her childhood.
The 24-year-old said that the song with controversial lyrics was her way of hitting back.
“My religious upbringing was comically strict – even the Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner was banned. In our house, no one was allowed to refer to devilled eggs. We had to call them angelic eggs,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
“We were never allowed to swear. I’d get into trouble just for saying ‘Hell no’. If you dropped a hammer on your toe in our house you had to say something like ‘Jiminy Christmas’. The only music we were allowed to listen to was gospel. No wonder I rebelled,” she added. (ANI)
