It may be surprising to know that rebellious pop-sensation Justin Bieber regularly attends church. When he was getting in trouble with the law, he was reportedly seen attending church more and more, including the Hillsong Church, including the New York and Los Angeles extensions. He has openly talked about his faith and his relationship with Jesus Christ. When he’s been at some of his lowest points, God has grounded him.
Katy Perry has been spotted attending church which may come as a surprise given she has turned away from her Christian background in recent years. The pop singer who grew up in a Christian home with Pentecostal parents was once an aspiring Gospel singer but in the process of becoming a pop star let go of her religious views. While she no longer labels herself Christian, she said in a recent interview with Marie Claire “I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable.”
Academy Award winning actor and film producer Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted attending Los Angeles megachurch, Bel Air Presbyterian. While he has been labeled a Catholic in the past, he was quoted saying “Death freaks me out. I don’t know about an afterlife. I’m not religious, you know. I’m not an atheist but I’ve never had a religion.” Interesting, Leo. You had to be searching for something in that church.

Despite her very controversial presence in the media, Miley has been spotted attending church with the Cyrus family. However her Christian views have drastically changing over the years. The former Disney Star once considered the church as her greatest source of strength. Miley recently took jabs at Christian conservatives for “believing in fairytales” and refusing to give up their traditional views of marriage. In an interview with NYC-based independent publication, Paper Magazine she said she considers herself as the “least judgmental person ever”.
Oprah has been spotted attending Joel Osteen’s Lakewood church with powerhouse actor, producer and friend, Tyler Perry. Her church attendance may come as no surprise, given she has been one of the most influential spiritual figures throughout the history of her show and now on her network, OWN. While she rarely speaks explicitly about her own religion, she has been a powerful force, with many publications noting her spiritual influence over her audience. She was a member of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Chicago church but later shifted away from his church, citing church fatigue and a desire to be involved in a more inclusive ministry as reasons she left his church.
