Katy Perry joined SiriusXM’s CBC Radio One this week to reflect on her career and her new single, “Daisies,” and said she fought off thoughts of suicide before her engagement and pregnancy by remaining grateful.
The pop star admitted her most recent battle with suicidal thoughts happened after the release of her last album, Witness.
“My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic,” Perry told SiriusXM’s CBC Radio One.
The “Firework” songstress admitted that she contemplated suicide following the 2017 release and breaking up with her now fiancé Orlando Bloom.
“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,” Perry continued. “But the validation did not make me high, and so I just crashed.”
She recalled being so broken that she was able to finally come together.
Perry testified that what “saved” her “life” was finding “gratitude.”
“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,” the 35-year-old explained. “But I found the ways to be grateful.”
“Every morning I wake up and it’s the very first thing I say, ‘Thank you God for today, I am grateful in every way. If it gets really hard I walk around and say, ‘I am grateful! … That’s been the light at the end of my tunnel.”
When describing why she believes in a higher power, the pregnant singer said fingerprints are a type of “sacred geometry” in mankind because no one is the same.
