The famous American Singer Katy Perry reveals about her breakup in a radio show on “Q on CBC,”. Katy Perry’s breakup with Orlando Bloom in 2017 has affected her mentally and she felt suicidal.
“I lost my smile,” the singer said to host Tom Power.”I don’t know if my smile was ever fully, like, authentically mine but I was riding on the high of a smile for a long time. Which was the validation, love, and admiration from the outside world, and then that shifted.”
She also expressed how this affected her career. “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,” the singer explained.
“I had given so much 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 and the record didn’t get me high anymore,” Katy Perry said. “The validation didn’t get me high, and so I just crashed.”
Firework and Roar became inspiration songs for many fans. These songs were written during her worst time of her life she said.
She also explained about her mental health. “In the past, I had been able to overcome it, but this time something happened that made me fall down too many flights of stairs. I had to really go on a mental health journey,” she said.
