Katy Perry is a widely popular and beloved pop star with an enormous fan following. The Roar singer has belted many chart-busting hits over the years and is also the proud recipient of numerous awards. The internationally acclaimed singer is well known for her elaborately planned dramatic sequences and visually stunning music videos. However, not everything is pretty and perfect in the singer’s life.
In a recent interview, Katy Perry opened up about her struggles with mental health. The pop star bravely spoke about her insecurities and recalled the time she was ‘clinically depressed’ after the unexpected failure of her album ‘Witness’ in 2017.
Witness, although receiving poor critical and commercial success, did get charted in the Billboard 2000. The album’s first hit, Chained To The Rhythm, was well received but her other tracks did not do so well.
‘I really went through a journey’
“Coming out of ‘Witness‘, which was my last album, I became very upset and clinically depressed.” she said. “I became very insecure and had to go on a journey, emotionally, spiritually, and psychologically to understand why I relied so much on validation. I had to realize that everything related to my career isn’t all of what life is, it’s just a part of who I am.”
She continued: “This new record is a real snapshot of resilience. Which is my favorite word, because I’ve been writing it over the past two years. I really went through that journey and a lot of beautiful songs came from it.”
Buzz surrounding her new album
Katy Cats have a surprise in store for them. The singer’s next album, the title of which is yet to be revealed, will drop on August 14. The album will feature songs written by the singer over the last two years.
The American pop sensation is expecting her first child with fiance and actor, Orlando Bloom. Katy’s pregnancy reveal pleasantly surprised fans when she sported her growing baby bump in the ‘Never Worn White‘ music video.
The singer recently admitted that she’s been getting emotional while being stuck at home. The pregnant pop star, who is used to going out, says she cries all the time, and puts it down to a combination of hormones and the lock down.
