Ryan Seacrest Posts Awesome Pic on Katy Perry’s Dad’s Motorcycle

Ryan Seacrest found himself hanging out with Katy Perry’s father as the father was showing off his rad motorcycle bike. But would Seacrest, host of American Idol, see himself taking that hog for a ride? We don’t know exactly. Yet he seemed pretty open to adding it as part of the talent show’s scenery.

In one of two pictures posted on Seacrest’s Twitter account, the American Idol host takes a seat on the big motorbike. Another photo shows Seacrest having a conversation with Perry’s father Keith Hudson.

Hudson, who is Perry’s father, is sitting atop the motorcycle. It looks like the motorcycle might have been made just for Hudson, who is a Pentecostal preacher along with his wife, Mary Perry. On this day, all eyes were probably drawn to Hudson while he was riding around town. They’ve been Pentecostal and evangelical ministers for 40 years, traveling to all parts of the world with their work.

Katy Perry’s Parents Follow God’s Laws

Keith and Mary have been married since 1979 when they tied the knot in Las Vegas. But they didn’t stay in Las Vegas. No, they moved to Santa Barbara, California, and started up their own church. Perry has admitted in a Vanity Fair interview that she didn’t “have a childhood” due to the strict Conservative-driven rules and regulations put down by her parents.

Close Perry fans probably know that her parents are devoted to their religion. Seeing Hudson on the back of a motorcycle doesn’t fit the image of a preacher some may have in their lives. Still, it appears that Hudson is not having an issue riding that big motorcycle.

He’ll probably be riding around Santa Barbara. As a youngster, Perry was brought up in the Church. She filled her youth with gospel music, which was the only kind allowed in her household.

But she made a name for herself in the world of pop music. Her records have sold millions of copies and heaven knows how many streaming downloads she has in her career.

These days, Perry is with Orlando Bloom, with whom she shares a daughter. Previously, Perry was married for a little over a year to Russell Brand. But Brand filed for divorce in 2011 and it was granted. Hudson did tell the Daily Mail that he had “forgiven” Brand for breaking up with Katy Perry via text.

Meanwhile, you better enjoy this season with Perry on American Idol because she will not be returning next year. During an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Katy Perry revealed that seven seasons as a judge is enough. She’s been sitting by Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan all this time, too.

Ryan Seacrest Thankful For New Centers Opening

Meanwhile, just as 2024 was getting started, Seacrest deserves a lot of credit for the work he does through his foundation. Back in January, Ryan Seacrest sent a touching message on Instagram to his many fans.

“My family and I are looking back at this year with so much gratitude,” Seacrest captioned the video. “Thankful that we’ve been able to open 3 #SeacrestStudios this year; and although things can move quickly, it’s always nice to pause and reflect on all the incredible moments that have come from opening 14 broadcast centers for kids across the country. We look forward to opening many more!”

Besides his American Idol duties, Seacrest has been the main host for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest. Much like the venerable Clark did, Seacrest stands outdoors and is joined by musical acts in Times Square in New York City.
