Pop star Katy Perry has been branded a “devil child” — by her own dad.
Firebrand preacher Keith Perry also claims watching his daughter’s gigs is so hellish he ends up weeping because the fans are worshipping the singer instead of God, The Sun reports.
And, in a string of sermons, he urges congregations to “pray for Katy”, whose hits include "I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It."
Keith and wife Mary are currently touring American churches as star speakers.
The pair show a video making Katy out to be a “devil child” who needs “healing”.
Speaking in Santa Fe Springs, California, Keith ranted: “They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000," he said. "I’m watching this generation and they were going at it. It almost looked like church."
“I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping," he added. "They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.”
