Katy Perry Takes Celibacy Vow

Katy Perry Takes Celibacy Vow

“I Kissed a Girl” singer Katy Perry announced to TV Guide that she’s taken a vow a celibacy when asked who she would like to smooch at the Grammys.

The 24-year-old said, “I’ve actually taken a vow of celibacy this year…no kissing anyone. Just my cat, Kitty Purry.”

The first-time Grammy nominee also shared that her parents are still reeling from the nod: “They can’t believe they created something that is Grammy-nominated.”

UPDATE: Apparently Katy was just kidding! “That was a joke!” Katy responds. “And any fine journalist would have gotten that joke and inserted that in the context. I’m not going to be celibate, I guess I’m just going to be looking for the right one. But please! Celibacy for a whole year?! I’d rather die! That’s just how the media works. I’m a continual prankster and a jokester, and people forget that you have to interpret that if I’m telling a joke.”

    Celibacy is about more than just not having sex. It’s about learning who are and what you really want out of life. I too believe in being celibate and have created a website and book dedicated to called The Kama Sutra of Celibacy: 101 Ways to be Successfully Celibate. The Kama Sutra of Celibacy is designed to help singles live a successful life of celibacy through practical exercises that addresses the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of celibacy while providing guidance, encouragement and support.
