Katy Perry reveals that she did more than kissing a girl and liking it. The singer reveals that the 2008 hit that made Katy a breakout artist was very personal for her.
On Saturday night Katy accepted the National Equality Award at the Human Rights campaign Gala where she gave a speech about struggling as a youth with her bisexuality due to both of her parents being Pentecostal pastors. The newly single pop star revealed that when she discovered that she also liked women she attended conversion camps to “pray the gay away“.
Perry actually debuted as a gospel singer but when she was introduced to more people in the industry her mindset started to change. In her speech the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer stated “I found my gift and my gift introduced me to people outside my bubble and my bubble started to burst. These people were nothing like I had been taught to fear. They were the most free, strong, kind and inclusive people I have ever met,” the pop princess went on to say “I have to stand up for what I feel is true and that is equality and justice for all, period.”
Katy Perry is a huge LGBTQ advocate and hopefully her story will resonate with anyone who needs to hear that it’s okay to be yourself.
