Mental health issues can be a difficult subject for many to talk about, especially when millions of people are watching.
However, Katy Perry recently opened up about her struggles with suicidal thoughts over the weekend.
According to Billboard, the singer has been livestreaming her life since Friday, and this included a tear-filled therapy session.
Perry revealed that she’s struggled with thoughts of suicide in the past, saying:
“I feel ashamed that I would have those thoughts, feel that low, and that depressed.”
She also went on to say that she’s struggled trying to be herself under the constant pressures of fame:
“I so badly want to be Katheryn Hudson [her birth name] that I don’t even want to look like Katy Perry anymore sometimes — and, like, that is a little bit of why I cut my hair, because I really want to be my authentic self.”
