Lingerie and church don't usually go together, but somehow Katy Perry makes it work. The "California Gurls" singer is set to release her newest album, Teenage Dream and posed scantily clad on the cover of Rolling Stone to talk it up, along with her very Christian and blessed childhood.
Katy grew up in a household of minister parents and reveals that luck had nothing to do with her success at finding love with fiance Russell Brand. "I wasn't ever able to say I was 'lucky' because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed, and she also didn't like that lucky sounded like Lucifer," she told the mag. In fact, her mom even forbade her from eating Lucky Charms. But, she revealed, "I think that was the sugar. I think my mom lied to me about that one."
The singer even has the word Jesus tattooed on her wrist and admits her parents spoke the word of God often. "Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as 'Pass the salt.' It's a secret, direct prayer language to God," she elaborates, noting her father is the one who could actually speak in tongues, while her mom acted as the interpreter.
Katy is expected to drop Teenage Dream at the end of August and has already shot the video to her next single, the title track. She is hosting the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday.
Katy's issue of Rolling Stone hits newsstands Friday.
