It’s hard to believe that anyone would feel sad after breaking up with Russell Brand–I mean, gross!–but Katy Perry confesses that she was a hot mess when they got divorced. Breaking up is hard to do, no matter who it’s with, I guess…
“I was in bed for about two weeks,” she told the UK’s Sunday Times. “I was pretty f***ed, yes. It hurt a lot–I got a good knock.”
All of that pain was channeled into her new autobiographical song “By the Grace of God” which is on her latest album Prism.
“I was down and out, I’d lost hope, all of my confidence had been shattered,” she said. “Unfortunately, although I had a lot of outward self-identity, I didn’t have the inner kind, I hadn’t built that up.”
Now Katy is roaring with happiness: her new music is topping charts, she’s totes in love with John Mayer (I won’t fault her for that), and she’s smiling again.
