Hey you all,

I'm an Asian Catholic, and I'm proud of it : )

Being a curious sociable teen that I am, I want to know if the following celebrities are Catholics:

  • Taylor Swift
  • Justin Bieber
  • Lady Gaga
  • Selena Gomez

I tried to look them up in the Internet, but the data is very inaccurate. One source would say they're Catholic while others would they're some sort of "undefined" Christian.

The reason why I want to know this is because, well, I love them. <Ha, ha.> It would be so awesome if they were Catholic like us.

I hope you guys can do a better job than I did.

Thanks so much!

Christine

Hi, Christine —

Thanks for the question.

I found it hard to find a comprehensive site that lists the various faiths of different celebrities, that was put together in a professional manner e.g., no pop ups, automatic videos playing or scripts running.

The best one I found was this one, though you get pop-ups all the time and it plays a video no
one wants to initially hear.

This site listed your celebrities as:
  • Taylor Swift — Christian — Probably not Catholic.
  • Justin Bieber  — Christian — Probably not Catholic.
  • Lady Gaga — Catholic Christian — Yes!
  • Selena Gomez — Catholic Christian — Yes!

Usually if someone calls themselves a Christian, it means:

  • they may be in a semi-search mode, similar to a non-denominational Christian, who usually has been to several denominations since his/her childhood, or
  • religion may not be an important part of their life, at least not now.

Here are some other web pages that provided information on other celebrities who were either practicing or non-practicing Catholics. I think you will find the second web page down in this list interesting; I did!

Unless you wish to risk the safety of your PC do not go to famouswhy.com! While looking for information it ran scripts on my PC that I had to stop and you got pop-ups all the time.

Hope this helps,

Mike

Christine replied:

Thanks Mike,

Wow, thanks so much!

I learned a lot from these sites; like how really famous people like Robert Pattison and Taylor Lauthner are Catholics.

  • How cool is that?

Thanks again, and I just wanted to let you know that the time you put in finding all this is so worth it!

Until next time,

Christine V.
