Katy Perry Divorce: Parents Want To 'Save' Media

Just after Katy Perry took to Twitter to blast gossip surrounding her divorce from Russell Brand with a fiery "NO ONE speaks for me," Perry's parents are responding via sermon.

In a video posted to TMZ, Perry's father Keith Hudson can be seen saying he wants to "save" the media so that it can "write good stuff, Amen!" during a sermon in Fort Valley, GA -- the only time he mentions his daughter's divorce.

It was rumored that Katy, 27, requested Brand, 36, to file for divorce in order to appease her religious parents, who are both evangelical ministers -- and with whom the famously outlandish, publicly Buddhist comedian may have clashed.

Shortly after news broke of the divorce, Keith and Mary Hudson, 63, also sparked controversy when they administered a sermon that suggested their daughter's divorce had been sent by God.

"I'm sure Katy is trending on the internet just to get you to church tonight... I mean, all over the world, who knows how God is bringing them in? The most important thing is you are here and God wants to put the fire in you in 2012," Mary told the audience at the Church on Rise congregation in Ohio on January 4.
