Pop icon Katy Perry may be many things but a Potterhead isn't one of them — in an interview for People, she confessed that she wasn't allowed to read the Harry Potter books as a child:
"I know Harry Potter, but I've never read the books, nor have I seen the movies because growing up, I was not allowed to read the books," the pop star, 31, tells PEOPLE of J.K. Rowling's cultural phenomenon.
Perry wasn't allowed to be around anything magic-related because of her strict Christian parents.
Perry, whose parents Keith and Mary Hudson are devout Christian ministers, has been vocal about being raised in a strict household.
"Growing up, I wasn't allowed to have any fantastical, enchanting stuff around me," she explains.
