Katy Perry opened up about her battle

The famous singer and songwriter Katy Perry got candid during a recent interview with Sunday times talking about her battle with depression. Katy Perry has been through a lot in her career and personal life in the past years. During the raw interview, the singer revealed that she had reached a point where she feared she would not live to see the year 2018. 

As we all know, the 35-year-old singer is expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43. The pregnant singer dished about how she had to treat her depression with medications. 

Katy Perry said,

“It was if I had sprained my brain and needed crutches. I got really clinically depressed. I’d always been able to skirt the issue. I was on something my psychologist recommended and it changes the chemistry in your mind. Sometimes people need a pharmaceutical crutch.” 

She further told the news outlet that, “You are never going to change someone as much as you want to change them. I had to make a choice {to change myself} after hitting rock bottom. I had no choice but to go on this emotional, spiritual, psychological journey and I probably wouldn’t live to see 2018…i tried medication and that was really intense.”

Depression through her Witness Tour:

It is important to talk about a serious issue like depression to remove the stigma around it and luckily some celebrities like Katy Perry have the guts to start talking about this monster. 

During the interview with Sunday Times, she also added that she was very much in depression during her Witness Tour and it took a worse turn on her unstable mental health. She elaborated that the main reason behind it was the poor critical and commercial response of her fifth studio album. 

“I’ve been through the journey, now I’m just enjoying the ride. I’m no longer a thirsty, desperate pop star that has to reach certain numbers in order to feel worthy. The overall definition of this record [her new album called Smile} is getting my smile back.” She was quoted by the news outlet. 

She opens up about suicidal thoughts!

Katy Perry has been dealing with depression and its medications since she was 25. About 3 years ago, the “Roar” singer got candid talking about how she didn’t want to be the “Katy Perry” her fans and other people saw. She got really emotional during a marathon weekend live stream event as she opened up to Siri Singh from Vineland’s “The Therapist”

“I don’t even wanna look like Katy Perry anymore sometimes and that is a little bit why I cut my hair because I really wanna be my authentic self like one hundred percent but like I can’t b that… and I’m the ashamed cause of course Katy Perry is so strong” 

 It requires courage to show your fragile side but Katy Perry revealed that now she is just focused on “delivering the healthy child” and is no longer on medication. 

The soon to be married couple has postponed the wedding the second time due to the Covid-19 pandemic as Orlando Bloom said during an interview to The Times UK, 

“I’m not joking when I say that coronavirus might have a play in whether we put things on ice, because we don’t anyone to feel uncomfortable.”
