Katy Perry says she is on an 'emotional rollercoaster' by being pregnant during a pandemic


Katy Perry has a new album, Smile, to celebrate and she did so by showing off her baby bump for a new socially distant photo session.

The 35-year-old star also talked to People about what it is like being pregnant during a pandemic; she is expecting a baby girl with fiance Orlando Bloom this year.

‘Every day your options change, and you don’t know what’s what. Especially being pregnant in a pandemic, it’s an emotional rollercoaster,’ the American Idol judge said. But she added that she is ‘so excited’ to meet her daughter.

But she says she has the right support. 

‘Having a great partner, having a sound mind, continuing to do the work, I’m not as flinchable,’ says the star.

She said she has had bigger challenges in the past as she fought depression.

‘I’m not untouchable or invincible, but it’s a little bit more like water off a duck’s back,’ said the beauty as she added that therapy helped.

As far as her new album Smile, she said it is ‘full of hopefulness, full of resilience, full of joy and love.’

She became depressed in 2017 when her album Witness did not do too well on the charts; it was her first career disappointment. 

‘After being on a rocket ship and just going straight up, it was just a small change in the trajectory, but it felt seismic,’ says Perry. ‘It’s been two-and-a-half years of trying to find my footing. It’s so easy for me to work, work, work and avoid, but I had to go on a mental and spiritual journey.’

She added, ‘You feel like you’re being attacked, and you can’t wake up.’ 

Perry did the Hoffman Process, which is a retreat that asks attendees to check their ‘negative behaviors conditioned from childhood.’

That helped. 

‘How could I have felt that so powerfully to the point where my body was seizing?’ she stated to the site. ‘We all have negative conversations going on in your head that can take the wheel. You have to take the wheel back, and I definitely did.’ 

And it made the superstar – who also lost her grandmother Ann Pearl Hudson in March and her good friend Angelica Cob-Baehler, who helped start her career, in 2018 – fly right. 

‘It got me out of this desperate loop of being the best pop star ever,’ said Katy. ‘I just really want to be a human being and have the dimension of life.’

The Roar singer then said: ‘Finding the gratitude in this pain has been a real journey, but the outcome is worth it.’ 

She recently revealed what values she hopes to pass on to her daughter, as she appeared on a live stream Tuesday for Nova’s Red Room.

The performer answered: ‘Discernment is good, and integrity, and justice – oh my god, justice. Justice is so important for me; if anyone’s not being treated fairly or…

‘I just remember even growing up, I would involve myself as like a mediator in a classroom, I’d be like ‘That’s just not fair!’ but I do know how to play devil’s advocate, so if I were you know in debate now, I would probably have a really good chance at having a good debate. 

‘Revenge is not something I’m interested in, but you know… you know what I do? I just cut my energy off from those people. I’m just like ‘I don’t have time. God bless you on your journey.”

She debuted her baby bump in her Never Worn White video back in March, revealing her pregnancy with fiancé Bloom, 43.

Perry’s fellow American Idol judge Luke Bryan recently gave ET an update on her delivery: ‘I didn’t know the exact due date.

‘So I texted her like, ‘Hey, just so I can kind of wrap my head around when to really start thinking about you guys and saying prayers and everything,’ so she let me know the due date. She’s pretty close.’

The Dark Horse artist recently gave her final performance before giving birth, when she appeared at last weekend’s Tomorrowland Around the World virtual concert.

Perry said during a press conference: ‘I’m happy, and I know my body feels good, and so that means I can give a great performance.’
