Katy Perry's mother fears life in Los Angeles is leading her pop star daughter astray.
Mary Hudson, an evangelical Christian preacher, confesses she regularly prays to God that her daughter - the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker - will "find salvation".
She says, "Katy is not a homosexual, but I fear she has been led astray by the Hollywood crowd.
"I pray all the time that God will work through her and help her find salvation.
And Hudson doesn't approve of the racy outfits the 23-year-old singer wears onstage.
She adds, "Some are too revealing and her father has had words with her about it. Like any child she is going through a period of rebellion.
"I think she acts and says certain things to be provocative and to shock."
