In a new interview with Billboard, Katy Perry admits she contemplated suicide after her divorce from Russell Brand. And if you’re wondering if she could seriously be that stupid, in the next paragraph she calls John Mayer a genius, so yes. Yes, she could.
Elsewhere, Perry pointedly confronts her turbulent recent history. The line “You sent a text/It’s like the wind changed your mind” from “Ghost” references how Brand delivered the news he wanted a divorce. “By the Grace of God,” meanwhile, begins with Perry lying on the floor of a bathroom, fighting suicidal thoughts. “That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, ‘Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?’” Perry says. “All the songs are real-life moments. I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs.”
I’ll assume Katy Perry didn’t commit suicide because she remembered she’s rich and has giant breasts which is like winning the lottery after finding out you’re Jesus. You don’t give that up because a sex addict got bored with you even after you bought all those wheelchairs. There was nothing anybody could’ve done to stop that. Except maybe grow a third tit, but don’t dwell on that. Don’t dwell on that. Shh… shh…
