Katy Perry Honored At amFAR Gala
Katy Perry was recently honored with the amFAR Award of Courage at the annual amFAR Gala in Los Angeles.
"Today I understand that a courageous life is the only one worth living," Katy, who was being honored for her efforts in the fight against HIV and AIDs, shared. "I come from a Bible-thumping background that wasn’t particularly open or accepting of curiosity, I wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms -- luck was too closely associated with Lucifer, obviously -- or watch the Smurfs because they were magical blue demons, and then I became [the voice of] Smurfette later on in life, teenage rebellion.”
She added, “I may not have known it then, but daring to ask questions and redefine right and wrong when everybody around me spoke in absolutes was my first attempt at a courageous life."
The gala, which was attended by Katy’s boyfriend Orlando Bloom, Heidi Klum, Leslie Mann, Judd Apatow and more, and featured a performance by Shirley Bassey, raised more than $14 million for the organization.
