Katy Perry Says She Felt Like “Jumping” During Split With Orlando Bloom

Break-ups are hard, especially if you’re honestly in love, which is why Taylor Swift seems basically fine about two days after every break-up she’s ever had. Look in her eyes and tell me she’s ever loved anyone. Katy Perry, however, has known with Orlando Bloom, the father-to-be of her child and her fiancé, and it’s honestly kind of sweet, aside from the part where she contemplates suicide when they broke up.

Perry gave an interview on the CBC and Page Six reported on what she said about her split with Bloom in 2017. Not even the success of her album Witness made her feel better, and that made her feel worse.

“I had given so much out, and it literally like broke me in half.”

Finding unspecified ways to feel grateful “probably saved my life,” the “Roar” singer said.

“Because if I did not find that, I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped,” she said.

Still, Perry called it a “necessary brokenness” that helped her be “more dimensional than just living my life like a thirsty pop star all the time.”

She also said the reason she writes such happy songs is to give herself hope when she’s feeling bad, which kind of makes sense. Blues musicians have long said that they wing the blues to avoid feeling the blues, and music does have an ability to help us heal emotionally.

Thankfully Perry didn’t hurl herself off a bridge and she got back with Bloom a few months later. Now they’re quarantining together, having a baby that will never know what “outside” is because of the coronavirus and living their best lives.
