It’s been almost two years since Katy Perry and Russell Brand announced their split but she’s reliving it all over again with the release of Prism, out today. One track that really takes us inside her broken heart is “By the Grace of God” which tells the “autobiographical” story of lying on the bathroom floor, wanting to give up on life.
Katy spoke to The Sunday Times about the song and her split, admitting that she “lost hope” during her divorce from Russell. “I’m not the kind of person who is always like, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ I was in bed for about two weeks,” she said. “I was pretty f—ked, yes. It hurt a lot. I got a good knock.”
