The ‘Roar’ singer who is now expecting her first child with Bloom admitted she hit rock bottom following the split and slumping sales of her album, ‘Witness.’
In an interview, with SiriusXM CBC, Perry explained her terrible experience at the time, saying, “My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic.”
She continued, “I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be. And then I was excited about flying high off the next record. But the validation did not make me high, and so I just crashed.”
The famous singer described her life as ‘broken’ at the time, revealing that her faith helped her overcome the issues.
“It was so important for me to be broken so that I could find my wholeness in a whole different way. And be more dimensional than just living my life like a thirsty pop star all the time,” she said.
Adding, “Gratitude is probably the thing that saved my life, because if I did not find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped.”
“If it gets really, really hard I walk around and say, “I am grateful, I am grateful!”; even though I am in a sh***y mood.’ Perry explained.
The pop star explained she is in a much better place after dealing with mental health issues for the past few years.
“Hope has always been an option for me, because of my relationship with God and something that is bigger than me,” Katy said.
She continued, “My hope is that something bigger than me created me for a purpose and created me for a reason, and that I’m not disposable, and that every person that’s been created has a purpose.”
As we reported, Katy Perry is back together with Orlando Bloom, and the couple is expecting their first child together in the next few months.
The singer was preparing to drop her fifth studio album this month, but it has been pushed back due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
