Katy Perry threw her parents a 70th 'disco themed' birthday party. The pop star's Mom is a preacher and someone who continues to be a spiritual support for her daughter despite her living a different lifestyle.
"It wasn't always easy because we have very different viewpoints but now we can agree to disagree in a loving space," Perry said.
Katy honored her Mom and Dad with a party complete with dancing and a disco ball cake.
Many have been quick to judge Perry for her songs and music videos.
"I want you to pray for my daughter," said Keith Hudson, her father. "Don't judge her, pray for her."
Perry first tried to pursue a career as a gospel singer but ended up signing with a secular record company. She changed her last name from Hudson to Perry to not be confused with the actress. Perry's first hit single "I Kissed a Girl" made her an overnight sensation.
Despite her racy lyrics, Mary Hudson tells her daughter to remember her Christian roots.
"I know that God has His hand on me, and I know sometimes I go through things and they're just too intense and I can't handle them and then He swoops in and He shows me that it's His grace that brings me through it," said Perry.
