Music is one language that speaks to the hearts of all and those involved are celebrated worldwide. Katy Perry is one of the leading women in the world of music with multiple awards and accolades. She is one of the best selling musical artists of all time with a huge net worth. After Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” debut, she never stopped rising and her fame spreading like wild fire. “Roar”, “Dark Horse” and “Unconditionally” are just a few of her popular works.
Date of Birth: October 25, 1984
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Before releasing “I Kissed a Girl” with Capitol Records, Katy had wanted to remain true to her Christian roots but things apparently did not work out as planned. Her debut album was a full gospel record titled Katy Hudson released on March 6, 2001. It sold poorly with an estimated 200 copies before her record label, Red Hill Records ceased operations in December. The commercial failure of her first album and close down of Red Hills played a big role in her transition from Katy Hudson to Katy Perry (Perry being her mum’s maiden name). Read on to know more about her parents and two siblings.
Mary Christine Hudson (mother)
Date of Birth: December 16, 1947
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Mary is the not-so-happy mother to the famous pop star and sex symbol. Katy though loved by many, does not have the go ahead of her parents in her choice of music. This is because Mary Hudson is a preacher alongside her husband Keith and they both hold on tightly to their evangelical beliefs. Many times they are seen preaching not only about Jesus but about how their successful daughter has fallen into the hands of Satan.
For a woman with strong Christian faith, it would be heart breaking to see her child go in such path but as a loving mother, she has not given up on Katy. Mary holds on to the hope that one day her lovely girl would return to the Christian faith and urges other Christian communities to pray for and not judge on her famous daughter.
Maurice Keith Hudson (father)
Date of Birth: June 13, 1947
Zodiac Sign: Gemini
Keith and Mary Hudson have been married since December 2, 1979 and are parents to three grown up kids. Now that you know who her parents are, it is obvious enough that Katy and her parents do not agree on religious beliefs. For those of you that were current with the last Presidential election, you would know that Katy Perry was an unwavering supporter of Hillary Clinton. Here again, her parents were on clashing opinions as they remained steadfast on the side of Donald Trump (the current US President) even to the point of voting.
As much as the Hudson parents don’t agree on their daughter’s way of life and her kind of music, they have always shown her support in every way possible. Katy is privileged to have in attendance her loving parents at most of her award shows. She maintains a fairly close relationship with both parents regardless of their different views and beliefs about life.
Angela Hudson (elder sister, born to same parents)
Date of Birth: December 7, 1982
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
As a young girl, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson was following the path of her elder sister Angela in her love for music. Perry actually began singing by practising with her sister’s cassette tapes and would then perform the tracks with her parents as the audience. The “Rise” singing sensation has an alternative career as a midwife if suddenly her fans decide to stop rooting for her. In September 2016, Perry assisted in the delivery of Angela’s baby! Midwifery is impressive right for a music icon?
Angels, Katy’s muse married her boyfriend Svend Lerche on May 5, 2012 and has two kids with the “mid-wife” Perry assisting and filming both births.
David Hudson (younger brother, born to same parents)
Date of Birth: August 11, 1988
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Known professionally as “Hudson”, David is the third child born to Keith and Mary Hudson. He is also a singer and released his debut single “Areal Man’s Life” then his first EP in 2012 under the name of “Dirty Face”.
