Meanwhile, Katy Perry also opened up about her struggle with depression. “It’s hard because I’m ashamed. Because of course, Katy Perry is so strong. But it’s hard because I’m ashamed that I would even have those thoughts, you know? That I feel that low or that depressed,” Perry said. The “Bon Appetite” singer then said she had put her feelings into a song to help combat her depression, and Siri -who hosts Viceland’s “The Therapist” – told her it was a good way to deal with her emotions, rather than acting on her thoughts. Perry, who was crying throughout the intense therapy session, added, “I wrote that song, ‘By The Grace of God’ because you know, I do believe in something much bigger than me and I call that God for me. And you know, I get to live this wonderful life and I work very hard at it, and I’ve been given this gift but I know that God has his hand on me,” Katy said during Witness World Wide event.
