Katy Perry recently relocated to Kentucky and found living in the bluegrass state to be an “amazing experience.” The “California Gurls” singer quickly realized that she had been living in a bubble and that “Hollywood isn’t America.”
Perry recently appeared on the Chelsea Handler podcast.Dear Chelsea‘ and told the comedian, ‘I live in Kentucky and have been for almost a month.’
“And that’s quite an amazing experience,” Perry continued. “Because it reminds you that Hollywood isn’t America.”
“You gotta remember that,” said the 37-year-old “Hot N Cold” singer. “Because I believe that you can understand people better.”
Handler replied, “Yes, right. It’s nice to get out of what you know to be normal and your reality.”
Perry explained: “Yes, I mean, they live in a kind of bubble. We live in a bubble. Our bubbles are completely opposite. But they are – it’s interesting.”
Handler mentioned that Perry grew up in a “super-religious” family FoxNews.
Perry’s parents – Mary Christine and Maurice Keith Hudson – are Pentecostal pastors.
The American Idol judge has previously said she was raised in a strictly religious household in Santa Barbara, California.
said Perry Rolling Stone in 2010: “I could never say that I was ‘lucky’ because my mother would rather say that we are blessed, and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky’ sounded like Lucifer. Devil eggs were called ‘angels’. I wasn’t allowed to eat lucky charms, but I think it was the sugar. I think my mother lied to me about it.”
“Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as ‘Give the salt,'” she added. “It is a secret, direct prayer language to God.”
Perry – who was a die-hard Democratic Party supporter – also has the word “Jesus” tattooed on her wrist.
Handler told Perry, “You’ve been in different bubbles because you grew up in a bubble. You grew up super religious, yes, and that’s a bubble. Then you got into this industry, it’s a different bubble. Right?”
Perry agreed, “It’s an anthropological study of people.”
Perry revealed that having a baby was the “best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life.”
After having a child, she realized, “Things you thought were important never really mattered. Your family is really starting to come first.”
The singer had her daughter Daisy with her partner and actor Orlando Bloom in August 2020.
