Katy Perrys hippy mum once dated Jimi HendrixOctober 9th, 2008 - 7:00 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 9 (ANI): American singer Katy Perry has revealed that her pastor parents were no holier than her in their young days.
Perry, whose parents are disgusted by her hit lesbo anthem I Kissed A Girl, said that her mum Mary Hudson had been a hippy who ran away from home to travel the world, and ended up dating guitar legend Jimi Hendrix.
He just came up to her in a club and picked her out, the Sun quoted her as saying.
But her mothers past was nothing compared to her fathers, who had been a major LSD dealer.
Her dad Keith was a close friend of Timothy Leary, an early advocate of the psychedelic drug, and specialised in a potent strain of the mind-bending chemical called Strawberry Fields.
Dad would have died from one tab too many if he hadnt found God, the singer added. (ANI)
