Speaking to GQ, the songstress confessed that the first time she brought a rock CD into her parents’ house it ended up getting destroyed so she thought maybe it was a sign that she shouldn’t be listening to that kind of music:

“[It was] Incubus’s [1999] ‘Make Yourself’ album, which had ‘Pardon Me’ on it. And I brought it home at the bottom of my knapsack, with stuff on top of it. My parents never searched my bag, but my mom has got a pretty good intuition and a great connection with God, so I thought: she’s going to know something’s up.”

“So I remember going up to my room and I put my comforter in the crack of the door to make it hard to get in. And I opened it up and tried to pull the CD out and it breaks in two like the Ten Commandments. And I was like, ‘Maybe this is a sign. I should never be listening to this music.'”

Perry has admitted that her parents are both conservative Christians so were fairly restrictive with what she could and couldn’t do growing up: “There were a lot of things I wasn’t allowed to do. The worst part was not being allowed to stay over at friends’ houses. I wasn’t allowed to watch TV and had to hide my passion for pop stars. Although I have to admit now: I didn’t really miss out on much. These days I rarely turn on the TV.”
