Katy Perry Reveals She Considered Suicide After Collapse Of Career & Relationship

Published: Tuesday 30th Jun 2020 by Sam

Katy Perry is getting candid about one of the darkest times in her life.

Full story below…

In a frank interview with SiriusXM’s CBC, the singer opened up about hitting rock bottom in 2017 and being in such strife – personally and professionally – that she felt suicidal.

The year, of course, brought with it the commercial underperformance of album ‘Witness’ and, as she’s now revealed, a break-up with current fiancé Orlando Bloom. 

She explained:

“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.”

The pregnant star added:

“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.

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.”

*********

We commend Katy for being so forthcoming with her hardships; it’ll no doubt help others. Perhaps even some of her peers, who run risk of attaching their worth to commercial validation.

Looking forward, it’ll be interesting to see if Perry pours more of her truth into forthcoming fifth album – due in August.

        “She should have killed herself”

        Like, who in their right mind casually says something like this.

        May I remind you that we live in a karmic system. All the energy you put out is only going to come back to you.

        But go off..

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 30, 2020

        I want to apologise for my comment
        It was too harsh and mean spirited.

        Pls let’s be compassionate with one another.
        Yes, katy is white, rich and privileged but she is still human and deserves love

        Stay bless.

      • tyty June 30, 2020

        Tgi your raggedy ass site continues to allow this nut job to spew disgusting racism, sexism, bigotry for what? now it’s saying people should kill themselves…..Why are yall so hesitant to ban it from site?

        MODERATOR: U SAID HE HAD 1 FINAL CHANCE. LOG HIS IP AND BAN CLARKSHÂÂT FOR GUD. ☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾☝🏾

    • H**’s Mad June 30, 2020

      “Struggle” is subjective.

      You guys know it’s okay to just keep your opinion to yourselves sometimes right?

      Why and how was this comment necessary?

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 30, 2020

        We should feel bad for a rich multi millionaire? NAH.

        She is not getting any sympathy from me.
        I will save my sympathy for people who are hungry, poor, homeless, abused etc not a stupid rich white woman.

        Katy is saying all this cause her new single is tanking.
        We love to see it

        She hasn’t comes to term with the fact that her time is up. She has expired.
        There is a shelf life for pop stars and katy has pasted that shelf life.

      • Normani Love Lies June 30, 2020

        @clarkson, where’s your sympathy for Normani? U claimed to be black but hater her. Smh

  3. Drinkmybussyjuice June 30, 2020

    The comments on here are disgusting. Anyone is subject to depression no matter how rich. Mental health does not discriminate.

    • Naïme June 30, 2020

      I completely agree but there is a time when you have to think outside your confort zone. Suicide stays a choice that we have to respect but not wish for anyone.

      I usually disagree with Clarkson but je is alright about the white privileged shat that Katy is. If she thinks about suicide just because of what she been trough then she is the weakest piece of shaat ever.

      This is a really good way to fight depression. I work in psychiatry hospital so I am dealing with mental illness everyday.

      • TheTea June 30, 2020

        Y’ALL ARE WEAK FO ASSUMING U KNO ENOUGH BOUT SOMEONE ELSES LIFE 2DETERMINE IF THEY R JUSTIFIED 2HAVE SUICIDAL THOUGHTS. LIKE GTFOH WITH DAT GOD COMPLEX. LOSERS 🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾

  4. J June 30, 2020

    She might as well call up Tyson Trax to get her career back on trajectory lol. Hasn’t been the same since.

  5. carlenciaga June 30, 2020

    i can’t commend her knowing that she ridiculed britney during her mental breakdown.

  6. Happy+n+Rich June 30, 2020

    Katy Perry had a good 7-8 year run at the top of the charts, Many iconic artists did likewise. But I understand the humiliation of falling from the top — much more severe than having never succeeded at all.

    Her discussion of gratefulness is the great takeaway from this article. Not only does gratefulness help combat negative feelings, but that same mental discipline can help her get back on top again in music. She literally needs to work on affirmations and visualizations to that effect. Katy has to figure out what that looks like at this point in her career.

  7. Only Facts June 30, 2020

    She made fun of Britney’s mental health and breakdown, so I don’t feel bad for Katy. Sorry. It’s sad that she had such a terrible reaction to her album flopping, but we’re out here dying just because were black. So, bye girl.

    • Normani The Flop Whisperer June 30, 2020

      Use the same energy for your fave normani

  8. #TheTruth June 30, 2020

    No one can judge her or anyone else… if that’s how she felt then I feel sorry for her and it looks like she’s in a better place.

    Now, that being said… it’s hard to voice an opinion without sounding judgemental, especially with such a delicate topic.

    Let’s just say there are much worse things happening in life… If you consider quitting once you fall down, then I wouldn’t call you out weak… But let’s just say she’s still young and she will face other difficulties, that may be even harder.

    Ridiculous, next.

    It’s Kesha’s fault that Katy’s career has flopped.

    Perry stopped working with Dr. Luke because she feared a backlash if she worked with him again. Kesha lost her lawsuit because she lied about Luke assaulting Katy. Katy should visit Kesha and tell her what’s what.

    All you had to do was go back to brunette Katherine
