A Tennessee pastor branded popular singer Katy Perry a devil worshiping entertainer in a sermon Sunday and charged that she boasts "having a physical relationship with the devil" in her song "E.T." taken from her 2010 album Teenage Dream.

I don't listen to Katy Perry; I don't listen to Madonna; I don't listen to Lady Gaga; I don't listen to Beyoncé; I don't listen to any of them. I got better things to do," said pastor Charles Lawson of Temple Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, in a clip from the sermon posted to YouTube.
