In a new interview Katy, 35, recalled hitting rock bottom and told how she almost “jumped” after her album Witness sold less than a tenth of her 2013 release Prism.
Katy, who is now expecting a daughter with Orlando, said it was the first time she had suffered a professional setback.
She explained: “My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, up and up and then I had the smallest shift, not that huge from an outside perspective. But for me it was seismic.
“I had given so much out, and it literally broke me in half.
“I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby daddy-to-be.

“And then I was excited about flying high off the next record.
“But the validation did not make me high, and so I just crashed.”
Katy, whose exes include comedian Russell Brand, said her faith helped her recover.
She explained: “It was so important for me to be broken so that I could find my wholeness in a whole different way.

“And be more dimensional than just living my life like a thirsty pop star all the time.
“Gratitude is probably the thing that saved my life, because if I did not find that I would have wallowed in my own sadness and probably just jumped.
“But I found the ways to be grateful. If it gets really, really hard I walk around and say, ‘I am grateful, I am grateful!’; even though I am in a sh***y mood.”
Katy, who is hoping to marry Orlando, 43, next year, said she finally feels in a good place after struggling with mental health issues her whole life.

She told radio station SiriusXM CBC: “Hope has always been an option for me, because of my relationship with God and something that is bigger than me.
“Of course if I am the one controlling my destiny I am going to be the one driving it into the ground.
“My hope is that something bigger than me created me for a purpose and created me for a reason, and that I’m not disposable, and that every person that’s been created has a purpose.”
