“You’re not selling to Katy Perry anytime soon,” Chalfant told the archbishop’s lawyers.Further quotes from the article on this below - with the displeasure of nuns who viewed her execrable (but hugely successful - I'm not exactly in the target market!) music videos forming a key plank of the story...
The archdiocese and nuns agree the property, which was bestowed to the sisters by a devout Catholic who wanted them to keep him in their prayers, should be sold. The two sides are fighting over the control of the sale’s proceeds and whether Perry or Hollister are suitable buyers.
The Roar singer, whose parents are protestant ministers, has agreed to pay $14.5m for the convent and to relocate an adjoining house of prayer used by priests. Hollister has agreed to pay $15.5m, with $5.5m dedicated to relocating the prayer house.ARTICLE: AP (in Guardian) Judge says nuns' sale of convent wanted by Katy Perry appears to be invalid.
In May, at the archbishop’s request, the nuns met with Perry to see if a compromise could be worked out. At least two of the five surviving nuns – who had already searched for Perry’s music videos and weren’t pleased with what they saw – continue to oppose the singer purchasing the convent.
