the singer, who is expecting her first child with Orlando. Conceded that she was rendered “broken in half” by fame and a drive for success”
Katy told SiriusXM CBC : “‘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”
The 35-years-old singer added : “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.”
Katy Perry , who grew up with parents who were Pentecostal pastors, went on to reveal that her faith helped her heal over time.
The ‘Roar’ singer explained :”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 live my life like a ‘thirsty’ pop star all the time.”
“Of course if I am the one controlling my destiny I am going to be the one driving it into the ground, my hope is that something bigger than me created me for a purpose and created me for a reason. And that I’m not disposable, and that every person that’s been created has a purpose.”
Katy Perry and her boyfriend Orlando made their relationship officiel in 2016 at the Cannes Film Festival. Then The couple parted ways just over a year later in March 2017. But the split wasn’t to last and they got back together later that year.
