Katy Perry Covers 'Rolling Stone,' Talks Blasphemy

Katy Perry Covers 'Rolling Stone,' Talks Blasphemy

Katy Perry shows off quite a bit of skin as she poses in a bra and panties on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Teenage Dream singer, who also posed topless and only wearing fishnets, had to share:

On her super religious and strict upbringing: “I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky,’ because my mother would rather us say that we were ‘blessed,’ and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky sounded like ‘Lucifer’.”

On thinking she’d gotten her shot at stardom at 17: “I was in Beverly Hills with my new Jetta, thinking that my album was about to come out, and I was so excited. Then nothing happened. It was like, ‘Wow, my car’s getting repossessed, I have no money, and I’m living on Cahuenga, under the Hollywood sign.”

On her thoughts on blasphemy: “I wrote that tweet because of a combination of things. I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth. I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen. Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”

    LMAO @ “lucky” sounding like “Lucifer”. Haha. She does have a nice body. I don’t like her that much because I don’t think her song was that amazing and I don’t see why she’s famous. She just does the lame hit song of the summer but she’s absolutely right. Totally right. I’m not the kind of Christian who see evil in everything or who thinks about God all the time but geez, using blasphemy made me dislike Gaga. She’s going a little too far. And don’t tell me she’s doing just like Madonna since there’s no other celebrity I hate more than that old hag. Ugh. I’m starting to lose respect for gaga because she doesn’t know what to wear or what to do anymore to catch our attention!

    as far as I know Christianity forbids homosexuality pretty strongly.

    so what’s the difference?

    just sing your “pure&innocent” songs to kids and leave it at that.

    How can anyone take what the Bible says literally? How can anyone take it seriously when it contradicts itself SO. FKN. MUCH? According to both Testaments, cutting your HAIR is a Sin. Doesn’t this mean EVERYONE is going to Hell? I just don’t get it.

    The look on her face screams “I want pedophiles to worship me”. The mark of women wanting to stay young forever.

    Organized Religion is sick. There’s a difference between having morals and personal faith and guidelines to live by — and worshipping and enforcing your views on others.

    Spirituality and Religion are two different things entirely. What an airhead.

    Sadie Says:

    I wish she would just shut up -.-
    Shes so hypocrite. She said herself earlier that she was never going to talk about the ‘GaGa-Alejandro-diss’ after explaining it once, but soon as her album is coming out she brings it up again!
    Im tired of her stupid stupid statements and songs, I WISH SHE HAD NEVER KISSED A GIRL !!!!!!

    artisrubbishrubbishisart Says:

    @heo: Why can’t Gaga believe that? It’s her mind and her opinion. We all have our own. At least she has more talent than Miss Double D HS bimbo/bish.

    What does “kissing a girl” have to do with blasphemy? This girl is such a dimwit.

    joshua Says:

    Everyone’s entitled to their opinion but the fact that she said she no longer wanted to talk about her tweet and drag the discussions further, and then went and did this just before her single release is hilarious.

    “I am sensitive to Russell taking the Lord’s name in vain and to Lady Gaga putting a rosary in her mouth”

    Oh jesus. Lol, I would not want to be married to her. She comes off annoying, attention-seeking, patronizing and self-revolving instead of charming or gracious or anything endearing. She is beautiful though. I’m not a huge Gaga fan but wasn’t she intentionally trying to make a point about organized religion and Laws in the context of her video? Alejandro was about the Naz.i’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell regime after all. Katy you’re not very bright love.

    rhymes Says:

    She is an idiot! I can not take her seriously when she consistently objectifies herself in photos, videos etc. and then she wants to drop knowledge on being a Christian. Look in the mirror first sweetheart, I doubt the way you are carrrying yourself in the public eye is very pleasing to God.

    I love looking at Katy Perry, she’s so nice to look at.

    :P Says:

    If I were in charge of the Heaven Gates, I would let Britney in first. Then Gaga. Then Beyonce. Then Riri and Kesha. Christina and Katy can have the guest room next door (not below I’m not that mean).

    GirlFromPHI Says:

    I think she is slowly becoming like Lady Gaga… with the weird clothes in her “California Gurls” video (the shooting foam, the brassieres with “candies/pastries” on ‘em) and slowly having lesser textile on her. And I don’t like that at all.

  33. 33
    Emily Says:

    I hate both Lady Gaga and Katy Perry…. but Katy is being really hypocritical. Her whole persona is contradictory to what the Bible teaches. If she wants to be a role-model for christians, she went about it the wrong way. Nobody is looking to her for political or spiritual perspective. Sing your shallow, lame songs and shut up. Lady Gaga is a piece of crap for disrespecting religion and trying to call it art. We should all know by now to respect eachother more than that. I think religious folks and seculars oughta learn how to tolerate eachother

  34. 34
    Tina Says:

    Katy can say that about GaDonna and get away with it but all Christina said was Who’s Lady Gaga is that a man or a woman and that was said before anyone knew her.

    Dance In The Dark Says:

    I’m sure her God would really encourage those kind of photos. Hypocrite.

    Oh and her breasts are so fake it’s laughable, she needs to just admit it already.

    She needs to just shut up, realise she was just the flavour of the month and disappear.

    Lea Says:

    with or without Photoshop katy perry has a great body !!!!
    although she does not have much moral to criticize anyone I agree on the theme lady gaga
    is not right to offend a religion just to prove you’re “different” and to sell more records

    we already have a madonna gaga… just try to be yourself you are talented enough to not follow anyone and you dont need cause controversies by swallowing a crucifix

    Nick Says:

    omg…..poor girl!! It’s a wonder how she’s not in a looney house yet with that sort of upbringing!! I guess her parents didn’t think it was not very christian behaviour to pose alsmost naked! Hmmm… yeah, take your religious BS elsewhere lady!!

    offtheproperty Says:

    I am glad to hear that Katy is still a Christian. Thank you Katy for taking responsibility for the gift of your upbringing and for inspiring others to do so, too.

    status quo Says:

    Yeah I liked Katy before because she was different and had some class. But when you throw bibles at people like Gaga for “blasphemy” yet you have a crucifix between your boobs!? Seriously? You’re butt @$$ naked and you think that makes you a good Christian? I don’t get it.

    jenn Says:

    christianity – religion bah blah blah… She is right and she is a hypocite. It is totally hack to keep using crucifixes etc. as sex objects

    madonna’s mother was a devout catholic and she died at a very young age; leaving Madonna with questioning of god and jesus etc. but also a need to understand the devotion. If her mother loved him so much, why did he take her./i want to be devoted too so I can be close to her. She started out with the rosary and it is somewhat understandable. Gaga wears bedazzled crosses on her breasts and she is on the VF best dressed list. It is not blasphemy or acting out or art. It it is just marketing. Pissing on christian symbolism to the media is like chocolate cake to a fat girl… they eat it up and these girls are raking it in. When someone starts wearing star of david pasties through a see through berka, I’ll be impressed.

    dude... Says:

    @honestly…:

    you’re obviously the dimwit. she never said kissing a girl was blasphemy. read it again dumf*ck. people calling her a hypocrite are the one’s that have no idea what the word, “blasphemy” even means. which is exactly why she said what she said. that yes, she said she kissed a girl, but NOT kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix BECAUSE THAT would be blasphemous.

    a “sin” is not the same as “blasphemy.”

    plus justjared created the title to this post. not katy perry. duh.

    This is getting way to boring now kathy! everyday we see nothing but your breast trying not to pop out of your shirt or bra! enough already, we get the point that you have great body but there are limits, Soon you will find out that people gonna say, kathy who? nice body is not everything nowadays if you ever notice, brain can go a long way!

    rock n roll queen Says:

    i think what madonna did in like a prayer lady gaga in alejandro n marilyn manson with tearing mormon books apart n dressing as the pope was brilliant those people standed up against organised religion which is tryin to brainwash us n which thoughout history is responsible 4 the biggest crimes i think katy with such ridiculous upbringing (lucky lucifer serious?)should understand the need to protest n even make fun of these people more than anyone ps i dont think god has any problem with sexy photoshoots those r words of the religious freaks that try to brainwash us

    G Says:

    Oh hell no. Photoshop horrors! What did they do to her arms? They look like noodles! They literally scooped out the inside of her arms and her pits! Can these people JUST STOP over-Photoshopping these women? Whether or not you like her music or her personality, Katie photographs beautifully. She’s tall, sexy, and wonderfully proportioned. Stop the over-’shopping!

  58. 58
    honestly... Says:

    @dude…: I know what blasphemy is. I know what a sin is. I said nothing about the title of this post. I never called Katy a hypocrite. Your response makes no sense. And Katy IS a dimwit– my opinion won’t change no matter how you choose to defend her.

    WIN. Katy Perry is a dimwit. end of story.

    Jaime Says:

    I agree with JuBee (3rd post), it makes no sense for her to say that she’s against mixing sex and religion and then pose in her bra with a cross hanging between her breasts. What does she think that is? That is pretty hypocritical!

    Katy Perry is a flippin’ idiot! How in the hell is she going to talk about using sex and religion when she is once again selling sex and wearing a cross?. I’m no Katy hater but my goodness she just isn’t very smart. I won’t even start on her fiance…

    jenn Says:

    @marie:

    unless it was photo shopped, the girl has a cross in between her breasts while crushing a lemon in a pretty provocotive way. if you read her comments on blasphemy and such, you would find that hypocrite fits.

    i don’t care about the photo or the cross, but I used hypocrite correctly…thanks.

    katyy perry ‘s chiledhood had been dormented by bulies in her school years and, her perents were too busy making a living not tomention they moved a lot from state to state. [lack of stability is a factor]
    povorty is the hardest thing a child can go through in life, knowing thier perents can’t protect them from thier daily harsh realities.
    each child is different and, each adopts his or herself into a mental state , eather be scared from what they may face in thier life ahead, or the become agressive to a point of death dose not matter to them anymore, katty perry is a fighter and nothing will scare her or slow her down anymore no matter what any one will say or do.
    katy perry pushed everybody out of her way and drove herself very fearsfully to success she knew, shyness and politeness was not going to get her anywere, her perents were a perfict example for her, she did not have to look far in order to learn how achieve her goles.
    i hope the flees will not make a dent to her coragious ambtiouse mind.
