Yup, I'm quoted in an ABCNews.com story about singer Katy Perry. I did a blog post earlier this week about her 2001 Christian release; the post garnered some attention. A reporter called and asked me a few questions about it and quoted me in the article, which you can read here:
The one thing I've been struggling with is actually helping to "out" Katy Perry, because the backlash is, of course, going to come from the Christian community. Mainstream fans don't care if she used to be a Christian. But Christian fans are already pointing a condemning finger at her.
My only reason for even talking about it in a Beliefnet post was that I found it interesting that, given her admission about her behavior, she even got a Christian deal to begin with.
