Singer Katy Perry has disclosed that she tried to attempt suicide in 2017 after her split from now-fiancé, actor Orlando Bloom.
Talking to radio station SiriusXM CBC, Katy said, “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.”
“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,” she said.
Katy said that it was her faith and gratitude that saved her. “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.
“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. But I found the ways to be grateful. 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,” she added.
Katy and Orlando began dating in 2016 and briefly broke up in February 2017, only to rekindle their romance a few months later. The couple got engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2019 and announced that they were expecting their first child in March this year.
