Singer admits suicidal thoughts following marriage breakdown

Katy Perry has opened up about the pain she went through following the breakdown of her marriage to Russell Brand in 2012.

The singer was speaking to an Australian outlet when she described how her depression following the split is chronicled through her music: “Sometimes you can be blinded by your extreme emotions. I definitely was looking for answers, and during that time I wrote that song, and I was depressed and it was sad.”

Katy said she decided to share her experiences in her songs to let other people suffering with depression that they’re not alone: “I wanted to share that side of my story because I know there are so many other people out there that have gone through things like that, and you always feel like you’re the only one going though it.”

We're so glad Katy is feeling better!
