In 2017 Katy Perry she was convinced that it had hit rock bottom, to the point of contemplating the idea of suicide. It was the disastrous sales of the Witness album (which had sold less than a tenth of Prism in 2013) and the break with the actor that brought it down Orlando Bloom, with whom he then made peace and today the two are expecting their first daughter together and should get married next year (if there hadn’t been Covid, the wedding would have been held in the summer in Japan). My career was constantly growing, then suddenly there was a small crisis – said the singer in an interview with the Sirius XM CBC radio station, taken from the Sun – not such a serious thing seen from an external perspective, but for me it was an earthquake that broke me in two. I had broken up with my boyfriend, who today was the future father of my daughter, and I had staked everything on the new album, but it didn’t go as I thought and the impact was very hard, so I collapsed.
Helping her to go back from her very personal journey to hell was faith, which allowed her to come to terms with the mental problems she suffered all her life and make amends. Breaking me was important for me – Perry admitted – because it allowed me to find my completeness in a totally different way and to no longer live like a successful thirsty pop star. Gratitude is the thing that probably saved my life, because otherwise I would have continued to wallow in my sadness and I would have jumped. Instead I found the reasons why to be grateful and that’s why now, when something becomes really difficult and even if maybe I’m in a bad mood, I keep repeating myself “I’m grateful, I’m grateful”. Because of my relationship with God and with something bigger than me, hope has always been my option: I was created for a purpose and a reason and this applies to every person.
