Pop superstar Katy Perry and her brother and sister recently honored their parents with a huge disco-themed birthday party. Perry’s parents are Pentecostal pastors Mary Christine (née Perry) and Maurice Keith Hudson.
Both Perry’s parents turned to religion after a “wild youth.” From ages 3 to 11, Perry often moved across the country as her parents set up churches before settling again in Santa Barbara. Growing up, she attended religious schools and camps, including Paradise Valley Christian School in Arizona and Santa Barbara Christian School in California during her elementary years. Her family struggled financially, sometimes using food stamps and eating from the food bank intended to feed the congregation at her parents’ church.
Perry and her siblings threw their parents, Mary and Keith Hudson, a 70th birthday bash last week in Santa Barbara, Calif. The themed party gathered all of the Perry/Hudson clan together in their best 70s-inspired outfit. Both parents wore tie-dye outfits, Keith a suit and Mary a dress. Perry shared clips of all the psychedelic party fun on her Instagram story.
