What a damn shame.

Katy Perry re-revealed that she has never read Harry Potter or seen any of the movies — to this day — because she grew up in a very strict household:

"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."

ICYMI: The 31-year-old pop star was raised by her parents and devout Christian ministers Keith and Mary Hudson:

"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 a magic-potion-themed perfume."

Okay, okay. We respect the parents decision, but she still hasn't indulged in a little light reading just to see what all the craze was about?? Take that, J.K. Rowling!

But alas, Katy Kat seems to be surrounding herself with the "fantastical, enchanting stuff" she was deprived of as a child. From set design, colorful costumes, and her Mad Potion fragrance — we'd say she's definitely filling that void.
