Pop songstress Katy Perry has opened up about her religion and what her beliefs are in terms of heaven and hell.

The ‘Roar’ beauty also admitted that she believes there is a higher power greater than her.

Katy Perry was born into a strong Christian family and both her parents worked as preachers.

Growing up Katy Perry admitted she only listened to gospel and Christian music until she was 13.

The singer has opened up about religion in an interview with Marie Claire and said that she no longer believes in heaven or hell.

She said: “I don’t believe in a heaven or a hell, or an old man. sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger. than me because that keeps me accountable.”

“Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don’t want to hear.”

Earlier this month Katy Perry also spoke about the first time she heard Queen after only listening to gospel and Christian music for so long and how the rock band changed her life.

Perry said: “I only listened to gospel and Christian music until about 13. Then I had the revelation of Queen revealed to me. That changed my life forever, and the way that I write lyrics and paint pictures with my lyrics.”

Katy Perry earlier today released a special behind the scenes video for her new single ‘Unconditionally’ and commented on the video itself:

“I wanted to do a video for ‘Unconditionally’ because of the beautiful universal message that this song has in it about love.”

“Not just in a relationship, between a man or woman or a love relationship – it can be a song about the unconditional love between a mother and a daughter, a father or son or sisters or a friend.”

Watch Katy Perry perform an acoustic version of ‘Unconditionally’ on Alan Carr’s ‘Chatty Man’ a few weeks ago.
