Katy Perry revealed that she was in a dark place following her breakup with Orlando Bloom in 2017.
Like many people, the 35-year-old popstar experienced low lows, despite seeing how her life is all sunshine and rainbows.
In an interview with SiriusXM, Katy Perry revealed that during one of those lows, she even considered taking her own life.
It also added that her album "Witness" failed to achieve commercial success, similar to the success of her previous efforts.
"My career was on the trajectory when it was going up, up and up, and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective," the "Roar" singer shared.
The experience of heartbreak and career failure has reportedly "broken her in half."
The "American Idol" judge continued, "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."
During the candid conversation, Perry - who was born Katheryn Hudson - described her experience as "necessary brokenness," adding that she believes gratitude saved her life.
As the daughter of Pentecostal pastors, Katy Perry revealed it was important for her to be broken so she could "wholeness" in a "whole different way."
Speaking of what saved her life, the "Hot and Cold" singer said that it's finding ways to be grateful.
"If I didn't find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably jumped, but I found the ways to be grateful," the "I Kissed A Girl" hitmaker shared.
Katy Perry also credited her faith for helping her recover after navigating depression and anxiety for years and has revealed that she is now in a better place after dealing with her mental health issues.
