Before singer Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom were engaged and pregnant with a child, the famed “California Girl” singer says she contemplated suicide following the couple’s 2017 breakup.
“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,” Perry told SiriusXM’s CBC Radio One, referring to her album “Witness.”
“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.”
Perry said the thing that “saved” her “life” was being able to find “gratitude,” following the hurtful breakup.
“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,”
