Singer Ariana Grande said she turned to the Kabbalah faith after the Catholic Church rejected her homosexual brother, Frankie.
"When my brother was told that God didn't love him I was like, 'OK, that's not cool,'" Grande told The Telegraph. "They were building a Kabbalah center
in Florida so we both checked it out and really had a connection with it."
Kabbalah, an offshoot of Judaism, is a popular faith among entertainers and Grande credits it with making her a better person.
“You have to watch your intentions, make sure you're not giving in to your ego. You have to numb your reactive state. You have the power to change your reality,” she said.
Last year, Grande told Metro she turned away from Catholicism
because the Vatican criticized things she loved and believed in.
“[The church] said Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he’s a sinner and he should burn in hell. And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women. I was like ‘Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter? Get out my house!’ I was not having it. And the working woman thing? It was a moment for me. I needed something else to believe in,” Grande said.
Grande stood up for her brother on Instagram earlier this year after someone posted a homophobic comment on a photo of the two. Frankie competed on "Big Brother" on CBS.
