Katy Perry's parents are urging her comedian boyfriend Russell Brand to ''go towards the light'' and find God
Katy Perry's parents are urging Russell Brand to "go towards the light" and find God.
The pastor parents of the 'I Kissed A Girl' singer recently met the British comedian - a former heroin addict and alcoholic, as well as a notorious womaniser - for the first time, and said they are willing to accept him despite his past.
Katy's mother Mary Hudson said: "Russell must go towards the light and not toward the darkness. Only God can take the very worst person and turn them around for good."
The long-haired funnyman also swapped books with Katy's dad Keith, who gave him a copy of 'The Cry', his tome about helping people release the "desperate longing for God's intervention in your life".
Russell, 34, gave him a copy of his autobiography, 'My Booky Wook', which details his former life of drug binges and prostitutes.
Mary added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "You just have to see how the Lord's will is done. I mean, how many times have your kids disappointed you so profoundly you wanted to get up from the chair and knock them out?
"There are parts of the Russell's book where he is hungry for positive influences in his life."
Keith added he felt Russell has a "spiritual hunger".
Katy, Russell and her parents are presently holidaying in the ski resort of Ischgl in Austria, where she played at the resort's opening concert.
At the concert she wore what she called her "sl**ty sexy Santa outfit" and dedicated a song to "all my ex-boyfriends" as Russell looked on from the concert's sound booth. The pair then took to the slopes yesterday (30.11.09).
Russell has said he has "never felt more settled and happy" than he is in his relationship with Katy.
