Katy Perry Calls Pope Francis A ‘Rebel For Jesus’

Pope Francis has apparently left quite an impression on pop star Katy Perry. The American singer-songwriter, who met the pope in April, told Vogue Australia that she’s a “big fan” of Francis. “It’s a combination of compassion, humility, sternness and refusal,” Perry said in a wide-ranging interview published Wednesday. “He is rebel ― a rebel for Jesus.” Perry said she appreciated the pope’s love of animals, and that he took the name of her favorite saint, Francis of Assisi. She also said she admires that he sticks to his vow of poverty, even at the Vatican. Source
