London: Katy Perry has revealed that she used to live in fear that her minister parents would strip-search her to see if she was carrying any duff rock music.
The 27-year-old popstar used to sneak in CDs, as she was not allowed to listen to any other music besides gospel.
“I wasn’t really allowed to listen to anything besides gospel music, so I’d sneak in different CDs,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
“The first time I bought a record it was by Incubus. I brought it home in my knapsack and I had things on top of it so my parents didn’t strip-search me.
“I went into my closet, put a blanket by the door crack and tried to pop open the CD.
“It broke in two like the Ten Commandments and I was like, ‘I will never do that again’,” she added.
But Perry, who appeared on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno, has got her own back on her folks by talking about their sex and drugs secrets again.
“My dad was a hippie who went to Woodstock and my aunt was a topless showgirl before she found the Lord and became a preacher as well,” she said.
