Singer Katy Perry arrives at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, on Feb. 12, 2017.

Katy Perry considers Madonna a friend, but recently recounted a time in her life when she protested the controversial pop star. 

Perry, the 32-year-old “Rise” singer, says she no longer identifies with the Christian faith of her parents, but hasn’t forgotten the days when contemporary Christian music singer Amy Grant was her favorite singer and she accompanied her parents to picket Madonna concerts.

“Amy Grant was our Madonna,” Perry told Vogue as the fashion magazine’s May cover girl. “We knew about Madonna and Marilyn Manson in my family because we picketed their concerts.”

The singer, who was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, remembers handing out pamphlets called “How to Find God” to those in line outside Manson’s concerts. Once, she even went inside to view the hard rock singer’s show with her youth pastor.

Perry, who now considers herself the “black sheep” in her family, said she was surprised to find the show, “really interesting and weird — I got it.”
