When Katy Perry suffered from the mental health condition during her Witness tour, it counted on the critical commercial reception of her fifth studio album way back in 2017. Katy Perry Used to Fear her Life Over Depression.
The world-famous singer appeared in a new interview saying, ‘It was like I sprained my brain and I needed crutches.’ She has been taking therapy since 25 years of age, whose latest encounter with depression has grown far intense over the past.
The dominant conditions
Speaking to the Sunday Times, she told, ‘I got very clinically depressed. I had always been able to skirt the issue. I was on something that my psychologist at the time recommended. It changes the chemistry of your mind. Sometimes people need a pharmaceutical crutch.
You are never going to change someone as much as you want to change them. I had to make the choice [to change myself] after hitting rock bottom. I had no choice but to go on this emotional, spiritual, psychological journey or I probably wouldn’t live to see 2018… I tried medication and that was really intense.”
Recovering from the threat
Then the star remarked, “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.’
Katy is no longer on medication as well as on the Hoffman Process.
Earlier this month, reports came that actor Orlando has served to postpone the couple’s wedding for the second time. Moreover, rumors even stated that the duo had a plan to tie the knot last winter, which was originally scheduled in Japan.
