I have always been a rebellious child: Katy Perry

London: Even as a child popstar Katy Perry was very rebellious and enjoyed going against her Christian pastor parents` will.

The 25-year-old singer admits that her parents have always been very strict to her, Contactmusic reported online.

"Some people are fascinated with the idea of a great storyline, good girl, Christian parents, goes bad. My song `I Kissed A Girl` provided the perfect storyline, so it`s entertaining for people. My parents were really strict at first, because they didn`t want me to turn out like a prostitute" Perry said.

"There`s a button that all kids have with their parents. It`s like this red button that we push. And the paint has chipped off of my red button in a few places because of the constant pushing", she added.

The `California Gurls` hitmaker, who got engaged to the comic actor Russel Brand last December, made her parents upset by agreeing to be a part of `The Smurfs` film.

"My parents felt that the Smurfs` reliance on sorcery and magic was sending the wrong messages to me as a child. But it seems I am destined to push my mother`s red button" Perry said who will be playing blue-skinned `Smurfette` in the new animated movie which is based on the 80s cartoon series," Perry said.
