katy perry admits nobody could inspire her to get out of bed during her past depression battle

Katy Perry has admitted that nobody ‘could inspire her to get out of bed’ during her past depression battle.  

The pregnant singer, 35, suffered from the mental health condition during her Witness tour following the poor critical and commercial reception of her fifth studio album in 2017.

Katy, who had also split from now-fiancé Orlando Bloom at the time, has reflected on her past depression battle in a new interview and revealed she has since learnt to ‘compartmentalise’.

Talking to The Guardian, she said: ‘Nothing, no opportunity, no person could inspire me to get out of bed. My depression showed up in lethargy, in lack of interest. Like, now I just don’t care about anything. A-ny-thing. And don’t look forward to anything.’

Katy revealed that she spent a week at the Hoffman Institute, which is billed as an effective treatment for depression, anger and anxiety, she likened her negative behaviours that she wanted to address as a ‘Mary Poppins’ bag’.

The star also referenced the moment in her 2012 documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me where she shed tears before performing on stage following the end of her marriage to Russell Brand.

Katy added that she has now learnt to ‘compartmentalise’ and that you have to put your ‘personal life away for two hours’ while performing, joking that she provides a ‘Disneyland service’. 

She said: ‘I have learned how to compartmentalise and how to be a performer. You put your personal life away for two hours and realise that people are paying with their time and money to come and see the jester, to escape their own stuff.’  

Katy also addressed former backlash after being accused of ‘cultural appropriation’ several times in her career.

The star came under fire in 2013 after she dressed as a Geisha for the American Music Awards and in the same year was heavily criticised for wearing cornrows in her hair for the This is How We Do video.

Katy told the newspaper that it came from a ‘juvenile lack of education’ and she is now more evolved as a human being.   

She said: ‘But there is definitely not a whole lot of empathy or compassion towards people sometimes growing – or trying to f**king grow – in the spotlight. Because growth also means failing. And I’ve done a lot of falling flat on my face.’ 

Upsetting: Katy has previously spoke about her battle with depression and revealed she once feared she 'wouldn't live to see 2018' after hitting rock bottom (pictured recently)

Earlier this month, it was reported that the Firework hitmaker and actor Orlando, 43, have pushed their wedding back for a second time.

In a new interview, the artist admitted the couple are focusing on ‘delivering a healthy child’ as they prepare to welcome their daughter into the world next month.

They were rumoured to have originally planned to tie the knot last winter, before postponing the ceremony – allegedly set to take place in Japan – to this summer.

Katy told The Mirror: ‘You can’t plan anymore in 2020 because those plans are ­always cancelled.

‘We just want to ­deliver a healthy child. Everyone has to take life one week at a time right now.’

She echoed her comments in a recent interview with Howard Stern, detailing: ‘Obviously, that will happen in the future, but for now we just want to deliver a healthy child. And that’s what’s coming up right now!’

DEPRESSION AFFECTS ONE-IN-TEN PEOPLE AT SOME POINT

While it is normal to feel down from time to time, people with depression may feel persistently unhappy for weeks or months on end.

Depression can affect anyone at any age and is fairly common – approximately one in ten people are likely to experience it at some point in their life. 

Depression is a genuine health condition which people cannot just ignore or ‘snap out of it’.

Symptoms and effects vary, but can include constantly feeling upset or hopeless, or losing interest in things you used to enjoy.

It can also cause physical symptoms such as problems sleeping, tiredness, having a low appetite or sex drive, and even feeling physical pain.

In extreme cases it can lead to suicidal thoughts.

Traumatic events can trigger it, and people with a family history may be more at risk.

It is important to see a doctor if you think you or someone you know has depression, as it can be managed with lifestyle changes, therapy or medication.

She’s no stranger to being the center of attention, recently proving she’s indeed something of a Maneater. 

And Miley Cyrus continued to sizzle in the spotlight on Friday night, in her latest Instagram post ahead of her Saturday appearance at the 10th annual iHeartRadio Music Festival.

The Younger Now songbird, 27, uploaded a trio of stunning photos by celebrity photographer Vijat M in which she donned an incredibly sexy sheer black body stocking, with artfully placed paneling to cover her modesty.

Cyrus milked the camera in the snaps, striking rock ‘n roll poses and adding a trademark snarl to her perfectly tinted blood red lip. 

The styling in the photos was flawless as well, with Miley continuing her ode to Pat Benatar with her delightfully retro haircut and strong eye makeup.

In keeping with the showy elements in the photos, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker also rocked some welcome bling in the form of icy diamonds dripping from practically every appendage.

Vijat M is a decorated photographer having worked with the likes of Kylie Jenner, Lil Nas X, Doja Cat and many more.

On Thursday, the outspoken starlet danced topless in a black and white video clip, writing that ‘being single means having more alone time to video myself stripping naked to Joan Jett’.

The gifted singer recently broke things off with her beau Cody Simpson, a fellow singer, whom she’d been seeing for 10 months.

It was just the latest breakup in a yearlong period that saw Miley end her decade-long on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth last August with a divorce, followed by a brief rebound relationship with reality star Kaitlynn Carter.

Judging from her Instagram Stories on Friday evening, Miley may have been reliving some of those breakups, as seen in a shot from her bathtub while she was watching Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, an inventive 2004 film ruminating on how failed relationships are remembered.

On the bottom of the image, the We Can’t Stop crooner wrote, ‘In my f**king feelings’.

Meanwhile, Cyrus’s ‘Smiler’ fanbase and others are anxiously awaiting the release of her next album, whose lead single is the hit track Midnight Sky.

He’s the Australian actor who has been based in New York for years with his family.  

And on Friday, Hugh Jackman was spotted wearing a face mask as he enjoyed a walk in the city, where he’s been in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

The 51-year-old cut a casual figure in a black T-shirt from the Laughing Man Coffee Company, which is an ethical coffee shop chain that he co-founded.

Inspired by a poverty-stricken coffee farmer he met in Ethiopia, Hugh donates all of his profits from the coffee shop to support ‘educational programs, community development and social entrepreneurs around the world’. 

During his walk on Friday, the Wolverine star teamed his T-shirt with navy blue chinos, blue shoes and had a sweatshirt wrapped around his waist.

The Greatest Showman star also held a protein shaker in one hand and what appeared to be keys. 

Lastly, he had his hair swept in a side-part for an effortless look.

Hugh was previously spotted going for a walk with his actress-wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 64, and their two dogs, Dali and Allegra, on Thursday.   

The couple and their children Ava, 14, and Oscar, 20, recently returned to New York from their stunning holiday home in the Hamptons. 

In July, Hugh revealed he was homesick for Australia after a lengthy lockdown in New York City due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Deborra-lee and the couple’s children, Oscar and Ava, had initially been in Melbourne when COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in March.

But they returned to the U.S. just four days later in order to keep the family together.

Later this month, Hugh will virtually attend The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards.

He is one of five nominees up for an Emmy Award for Lead Actor in a Limited TV series or Movie for his role as Frank Tassone in Bad Education. 

‘I’m humbled by the nominations for both me and the film and excited to be named with such a talented group of actors,’ Hugh said in a statement at the time. 

Due to the global health crisis, the Emmy Awards will be a bit different this year. 

Jimmy Kimmel will host the show from a stage inside California’s Staples Center, which will have no red carpet or audience, Variety reported last month.

Carrie Bickmore is set to celebrate her 40th birthday in December.

But on Saturday, The Project host revealed she had grand plans to mark the milestone, that she’s now had to rethink because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The 39-year-old penned a column for Stellar this week and said that she and her friends, who were also turning the big 4-0, had set out to do a list of fun things.

‘On the agenda: Glastonbury [music festival], a blues & roots festival, a ’90s-themed birthday bash and getting a tattoo,’ she said of their plans.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the world to go into lockdown for months and put a halt on international travel. 

Carrie and her family are also based in Melbourne, Australia, where stage-four lockdown restrictions are in place.  

Big plans: She wrote in her column for Stellar that she and her friends, who were also turning the big 4-0, had set out to do a list of fun things, including the Glastonbury [music festival], a blues & roots festival, a '90s-themed birthday bash and getting a tattoo

COVID-19 also forced the cancellation of the Glastonbury, which was supposed to be it’s milestone 50th year. 

‘Instead, I sat in my lounge room “streaming” the best of Glastonbury on TV and taking part in low-key Zoom parties as each of my beautiful girlfriends marked their milestone birthdays,’ she said.

While the mother-of-three may not be able to go to a music festival or do a big ‘birthday bash,’ she’s urged people to not cancel celebrations amid an already difficult year.

‘I say we don’t cancel all these milestones, we just postpone… even if Schoolies becomes Toolies and 40ths become 41sts. Let’s still plan these fun occasions, because planning is half the fun,’ she said.

It comes after Carrie urged Australians to help each other cope amid the pandemic, in her column for Stellar last month.

She revealed that she ‘lost count’ of the number of people who have admitted to struggling, but feel guilty to complain as others are doing it tougher.

Carrie’s heartfelt messages to Australians was to not discredit their emotions or judge others who they perceive to not be doing it tough.

‘Everyone’s circumstances are different. It’s not a competition and mental health doesn’t discriminate,’ the mother-of-three added.

She concluded by urging Australians to not judge, and help one another forward out of the pandemic.
