Even though mega pop star Katy Perry has developed into a sexy music icon with catchy songs, growing up in a strict-religious household with pastors for parents meant that she was forbidden from reading J.K. Rowling’s magical tales.”Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to have any fantastical, enchanting stuff around me. It’s funny that now I’m doing a little bit of a magic-potion-themed perfume,” explains Perry.

The irony, aside from her perfume named Mad Potion, is that the young starlet has gone onto create a career for herself that’s quite magical using her own spells in a positive way. “Well, only use your powers for good,” she states.

Katy’s career began in gospel singing before her edgy and unique sound gained her recognition in the industry. She may not identify as a Christian like her mother and father anymore, but Katy has previously insisted she still feels the presence of a greater being.
