Katy Perry Claims ‘Got a Word From God’ Moments Before Super Bowl PerformanceBefore taking the stage at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards, singer Katy Perry told TV host Ryan Seacrest that she believes she heard from God just moments before her performance at last week’s Super Bowl showdown between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. “I was praying and I got a word from God and he says, ‘You got this and I got you,’” Perry said. “And then I was on top of the lion and a guy — a random guy — looked at me with a headset that I’d never communicated with before. He looked me straight in the eyes and said ‘You got this.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s God confirming I can do this!’” The singer, who inexplicably donned devil horns at moments during the Grammys, also described the process of preparing for the coveted Super Bowl performance, noting that she practiced the act at least 40 times before officially taking to the stage during the half-time show.  As TheBlaze previously reported Perry, who was once a Christian singer and whose parents are pastors, has publicly renounced her former faith, telling Marie Claire in a 2013 interview that she’s no longer Christian and that she doesn’t believe in heaven, hell or “an old man sitting on a throne.” Perry did tell the outlet, though, that she believes in a higher power — a paradigm that holds her accountable. “Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don’t want to hear,” the singer said. “I actually don’t trust people who start to turn on me because they get scared of telling me the truth.”  Perry also rejected traditional theological labels, but said that, though she has left her evangelical faith behind, she still feels close to the Lord. “I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God,” she said at the time. “I pray all the time — for self-control, for humility. There’s a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying ‘thank you’ sometimes is better than asking for things.” Marie Claire reported that Perry gets her connection to spirituality through the writings of Eckhart Tolle, an author known for his popular books about metaphysics and spirituality. She also practices Transcendental Meditation, a form of mantra meditation. More
