Considering she was born to two pastors, being religious almost seems like a given.
But Katy Perry is hardly typical, so we can't really be all that surprised that she hasn't exactly followed in her parent's footsteps.
And now she's straying even further away from her parents as she's revealing her surprising religious beliefs, or rather lack thereof!
Katy opened up to Marie Claire about the often delicate subject:
"I don't believe in a heaven or a hell or an old man sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable. Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don't want to hear. I actually don't trust people who start to turn on me because they get scared of telling me the truth. I'm not Buddhist, I'm not Hindu, I'm not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time—for self-control, for humility. There's a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying 'thank you' sometimes is better than asking for things."
While many celebs might shy away from this touchy talk, Katy jumped right in!
She's got a point. It really doesn't matter what you are so long as you're a good person.
And Katy is totes in the good person club!
