Katy Perry Reveals Her Parents Voted For Donald Trump Along With Her Thanksgiving Plans

Katy Perry and her parents have extremely different views. The singer, who was born as Katy Hudson, grew up in an evangelical Christian upbringing. Katy’s parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, still have conservative and religious views, despite the fact that their daughter is a pop star and Hillary Clinton supporter.

Perry, who has campaigned tirelessly for Hillary Clinton over the past two years, admitted that both of her parents voted for Donald Trump on Tuesday night. The “Rise” singer was met by boos from the crowd after revealing the truth about her family inside the Javits Center in New York City, according to Time. Perry is not abandoning her family anytime soon. She says she still plans to spend Thanksgiving with them.

“Tonight my parents voted for Trump, but you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving,” Perry said amid the boos. “And is the moment we need to remember: that we all love our parents, and we all love our children. And I can rest easy knowing that both of my young nieces at home will never see themselves less than equal, anything other than equal.”

“So, remember today is not just a finish line. It also marks the beginning of all the work we must come together to do,” she added. “We need everyone – gay, straight, black, white, brown, spray-tanned, people of faith and people that just love. So, let’s sing a song of unity. Let’s be one nation indivisible with a kick-ass president.”

The election night took a shocking turn as it turned out that Donald Trump has become the next president-elect. Perry seems to be done with holding hands and calling for peace — for now. Perry is singing a different tune. She has since taken to Twitter to call for a “revolution,” as reported via the Huffington Post. Perry posted a series of tweets on early Wednesday morning, encouraging her followers to respond to Trump’s win with power for change.

In case you’re still upset over the election results, you may find peace in Perry’s anthems, “Rise” and “Roar.”

Perry’s changing tune could make for an awkward conversation at the dinner table on Thanksgiving. Although the singer is obviously close to her family, she has strong liberal views and is not changing anytime soon. Last year, Perry revealed that she was not allowed to read Harry Potter or watch movies growing up. She claimed that she has never ready any of the popular books or watched any of the movies.

“I know Harry Potter, but I’ve never read the books, nor have I seen the movies because growing up, I was not allowed to read the books,” she told People while promoting her latest fragrance. “Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to have any fantastical, enchanting stuff around me. It’s funny that now I’m doing a little bit of magic-potion-themed perfume.”

Then, in an interview in 2013, Perry revealed that also The Smurfs and Madonna were “taboo” in her household. She was not allowed to watch certain television shows while growing up.

“I grew up in a very religious household and so a lot of things were monitored. Some things were allowed but Madonna was always taboo and so were The Smurfs,” she said, as reported via Metro.

Perry’s parents work as occasional (and controversial) Christian ministers. Keith Hudson apologized in 2012 for his anti-Semitic comments made during a sermon. Perry’s first album was a self-titled Christian rock record released under the name Katy Hudson back in 2011, long before the launch of her 2007 single “I Kissed a Girl” and her 2008 album, One of the Boys.
