Katy Perry's Parents

Abiding by Katy's Words

1/8/2012 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0108_katy_parents_video
Katy Perry's parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, delivered a sermon this morning to the folks at the New Hope International in Fort Valley, GA -- and this time there was no mention of Katy's divorce.

Earlier this week, Keith and Mary appeared at a church in Ohio and discussed Katy's split from Russell Brand during their sermon.

Katy tweeted last night that she didn't want anyone speaking for her -- including her family. Her parents seemingly listened ... though Keith did joke about the likely presence of press in the church.

Of course they will ignore her wishes, they've already proven how much she doesn't mean to them...

Now that the marriage is off, will the mating pair of pigeons be allowed to return to their nest atop Russell Brand's head?

It just goes to show you how much they really truly care about thier daughter, so much that they will exploit her for thier own purposes. I hate americanized christianity, the real Christians would not do this.

I think it's a great idea. These people are being hounded by the media for details about KP's divorce, anyways. Why not meet the media storm with a open discussion about divorce? This reminds me of how Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt used their scandal and pregnancies to bring awareness to impoverished countries. Same thing, really. Just pisses people off cuz of religion.

nof p.s.


- Parents often attach themselves to famous/successful children.


-As if the child attained that child's Success -


- Via Osmosis.


Katy Perry is Uber-Successful -


- Because of Katy Perry.


- She didn't succeed BECAUSE of them.


She succeeded -


- In SPITE of them.


Trust Nof on all of this.


Katy's parents shoulda stayed out of this.


Won't wind up well for them.

I'm sure there is a lot of pressure for them to speak out about the situation. Talking about divorce in general is one thing, but making it personal is another. Whether they agree with her decision or not, it is her life. She can't live her life for them, and they need to respect that.
