In that wonderfully accepting Christian manner, Katy's mom, Mary Hudson, was quoted as saying, "I hate the song. It clearly promotes homosexuality and its message is shameful and disgusting. Katy knows how I feel. We are a very outspoken family and she knows how disappointed her father and I are. I canít even listen to that song. The first time I heard it I was in total shock. When it comes on the radio I bow my head and pray."
I've purchased Perry's CD in one of my classic, "support our SoCal musicians" moves, and so far I've ended up liking the majority of the other songs instead of the Top 40 hit. But I think I like the chick even more after reading what her mother said and imagining what she had to put up with growing up.
