Perry bounces back after a wave of situational depression after receiving widespread criticism for her latest album.

The “I kissed a girl” songstress explained how, after releasing her Witness album in 2017, she was shaken by the underwhelming reviews surrounding the music she takes great pride in. “I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to … which broke my heart,” the artist shared.

Perry unlike many artists has been unequivocally honest about her flop of an album. So this interview is refreshing in the sense that Katy admits she felt very hurt by the public’s response and relative failure of Witness.

The popstar has set an exceptional example for her young fans and followers, by admitting she was overwhelmed by the terrible public reaction, Perry is showing those younger than herself how dangerous it is to weigh yourself against everyone’s opinion.

“That brokenness, plus me opening up to a greater, higher power and reconnecting with divinity, gave me a wholeness I never had.It gave me a new foundation. It’s not just a material foundation: it’s a soul foundation.”

Despite the negative reviews, Katy is still very much on top – being revealed as the highest paid female pop star in the world over the past 12 months.
