When he finished with the actor in 2017, and with the failure of his album ‘Witness’, Perry fell into a deep depression.
Katy Perry has revealed that she considered killing herself after her 2017 separation from Orlando Bloom, in addition to the poor performance of her album Witness.
The 35-year-old singer, who is expecting her first child with 43-year-old Orlando Bloom, admitted that she was in the background after difficult moments in her personal and professional life.
She told SiriusXM CBC radio station in an interview: “My career was on an upward trajectory, rising, rising and rising, and then I had the bad time, not so great from an external perspective, but for me it was seismic.”
“He had given a lot and literally broke me in half. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now the future father of my baby ”.
And then I was excited to fly high on the next album. But the results didn’t make me feel good, so I just fell. “
The star, who grew up with parents who were Pentecostal pastors, revealed that her faith helped her heal over time.
She continued: “It was very important to me to be broken in order to find my integrity in a completely different way. And to be more dimensional than living my life as a pop star, thirsty for success all the time. ”
“Gratitude is probably what saved my life, because if I hadn’t found it I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably would have jumped into the void.”
“But I found ways to be grateful. If it gets very, very hard, I go and say: “I am grateful, I am grateful!”; even though I’m in a bad mood. “
The California native revealed that she is now in a much better place after years of dealing with mental health issues.
She said, “Hope has always been an option for me, because of my relationship with God and something that is greater than me.”
“Of course, if I’m the one who controls my destiny, I’m going to be the one to take it to the ground.”
“My hope is that something greater than me has created me for a purpose and created me for a reason, and that I am not disposable, and that every person who has been created has a purpose.”
