Singer Katy Perry has revealed that she feared she would not live to see 2018 after hitting rock bottom. She battled depression during her Witness tour. It was followed by the poor reception her fifth studio album received.
In a new interview, Katy reflected on medication that she had to use to overcome some of her issues. She explained it saying it was like her brain was sprained and she had to use crutches. The singer has been in therapy since she was 25. However, she recalls the most recent encounter with depression was more difficult than anything she had previously experienced.
She said she got clinically very depressed in the interview with Sunday Times. Katy revealed she was on some medication that her psychologist told her to take. She explains that the medication changes the chemistry of the mind. The singer further added that some people need pharmaceutical crutches.
Katy says you are never going to change someone no matter how much you want to change them. She recalled that she had to make a decision of changing herself after going through a rough phase. The singer said she had no choice but go on an emotional, spiritual, psychological journey. She says without that she would not have survived to see 2018. Katy also said that the medication was really intense.
The singer said, ‘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 Smile] is getting my smile back.’
However, Katy is no longer taking medication because she found an alternative treatment. She has become a fan of meditation and the Hoffman Process. It is billed as an effective treatment for depression, anger and anxiety and releasing negative emotions by using Freudian analysis.
