Pop star Katy Perry wrote her hit song "I Kissed A Girl" to rebel against her strict religious upbringing by her parents. Katy's mother is an evangelical Christian preacher who has admitted she isn't a fan of some of her daughter's wild lyrics, which she has labeled "shameful." Perry was not allowed to curse as a child and followed strict rules as she grew up, so she wreaked revenge with the controversial lyrics. Perry tells the Daily Mail, "My religious upbringing was comically strict -- even the Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner was banned. In our house, no one was allowed to refer to deviled eggs. We had to call them angelic eggs. "We were never allowed to swear. I'd get into trouble just for saying 'Hell no'. If you dropped a hammer on your toe in our house you had to say something like 'Jiminy Christmas'. The only music we were allowed to listen to was gospel. No wonder I rebelled."
