Katy Perry Is Not Holding Back: Reveals Too Much

During an interview with Howard Stern, the first time mother, Katy Perry disclosed some of the biggest revelations. She opened up about her equation with her finance, Orlando Bloom and how she overcame her depression. The ‘Daisies’ singer also spoke about her friendship with Taylor Swift, her new music releases and of course her pregnancy.

While she spoke about Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry called him the “Only One”. She says, “He’s the only one that could handle it and that’s why we’re in this position, I showed him all of it. And I still test him and he still shows up and he still is not phased by it and that’s why he is perfect for me—because I’m a lot!”

Well, the couple is expecting their first child together, a baby girl who is expected to arrive very soon. Katy Perry shared, “I am a ‘mom on the move,’ as I say. I think my fans see it, that I’m really doing the work for this record. Once the record comes, once the baby comes there will be a transition. I’m not just sitting around.”

Fans have been speculating that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom might have two weddings however the singer shut down these rumours. She states, “We cannot plan anymore in 2020, because those plans are always canceled, I honestly, never heard of the other wedding, I only knew of one wedding. Of course, that will come in the future, but for now, we want to deliver a healthy child. And that’s what’s coming up.”

Well, one has to gossip a little during these kind of interviews. Be it creating a path to a new drama or focusing on old feuds, in Katy Perry’s case, it’s the latter. The singer found herself discussing about her friendship with Taylor Swift. She explains, “Gossip and lies, they take the elevator. But truth takes the stairs… Time will tell my story. What I’m so grateful for is that we did get to make up and we made up publicly to be an example of redemption.”

While an interview can also help address the elephant in the room, she finally lets us know the reason behind being super friendly with Taylor Swift. Katy Perry says, “It’s hard for young girls growing up [with] cliques and high school and pettiness and all that stuff. Now we’re super friendly. I’ve always wanted the best for her and we can talk about the best we want for each other.”

Katy Perry didn’t shy away from talking about releasing a new album. She says, “This record has been interesting to put out because it’s during these Looney Tunes times. It’s during a pandemic, a racial revolution, an election year and I’m delivering a baby at the same time,”

Katy Perry says that the upcoming album, “Smile” will be out on August 14 2020. The 35 year old singer also spoke about her phase of experiencing depression due to her 2017 album, “Witness“. She says, “I’ve always had a playful thing about my music and I lost that… I had really lost my smile. You create art and you’re excited for it to be received by the world. When it’s not received by the world, when it’s kind of like, ‘No, thank you,’ you think, ‘Oh s–t, that doesn’t feel good.'”

She adds, “It was more than I had ever faced in my life. I’d had bouts of depression before, but I had been able to avoid falling into the really dark depression by making music. It’s like all these things you do to distract, you eat, you work you get a new boyfriend, you shop. I was so ashamed about being on medication because I was like… ‘I wrote ‘Firework.’ But it was one of those things where I’d sprained my brain a little bit.”


Katy Perry reveals how a treatment has changed her perspective on life almost as though it’s saved Orlando and her. She says, “I actually went to this place called the Hoffman Process, which Orlando went to as well, which is a week-long intensive re-wiring of your neural pathways through psychological and spiritual exercises.”

She says, “It’s mostly science but it could come off a little hippy-dippy for some people. Basically, you just re-wire the negative paths, all the negative habits that you had for so many years, and you don’t understand why you keep going through that loop. It is another 10 years of therapy, but it saved my life, it changed his life, it set me up for the idea of motherhood.”

There is no denying that Katy Perry has been in the spotlight ever since she joined the industry. Especially now, she’s in the news almost everyday, on some days, it’s about the nickname she gave her belly and on other days, it’s how stunning she looks with the bump.

Katy Perry even shed some light on this, she says, “There’s like a leveling that happens where people put you on a platform. And, they want to make sure they still have the control and they absolutely do so they test it.”

The singer continues, “The funny thing is, living under a microscope, you’ll never live perfectly to anyone’s standards. You should see how they treat you when you write ‘your’ in the wrong way.”

We don’t deny that, people on the social media can be a bit too hard or harsh to these celebrities. No matter how big one gets, they’re still experiencing the same emotions as any other person out there. We hope Katy Perry has learnt to juggle many things at once, at least at a time like this.
