“This record is full of hopefulness and resilience and joy because it was made during a dark time when I was clinically depressed because I had a change in my career. The last record didn’t necessarily meet my expectations.” The “I Kissed A Girl” singer said.

Her previous album topped the US Billboard 200 after its release but later dropped a week later. It also dropped out of top ten and it was obvious that a lot of people had mixed feelings about it.

Her inability to come to terms with what happened to her previous album, led her through a dark part. Eventually, she had to stay on medication to get batter and she felt bad about this.

“I was so ashamed about being in medication because I was like... ‘I wrote Fireworks.’ But it was one of those things where I’d sprained my brain a little.” The singer said.

Finally, pregnant Perry talked about her fiancé Orlando Bloom, whom she had just one word to describe: awesome.

When she was experiencing depression, Bloom stood by her and when she was too salty, he preferred to be by her side.

‘He’s perfect for me.’ Perry said.
