Katy Perry Promotes Going to Therapy by Uploading a Session in YouTube Live Stream
The purpose of Katy Perry’s live therapy session with Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh; is to show her fans the importance of having a psychological evaluation, no matter how fine one thinks they are. While her live stream on Friday night, Katy Perry expressed her past struggles and a few emotional topics. One being her relationship with her parents, another on love life, alcoholism and times when she had struggled with suicidal thoughts.
It was at this point in the live stream that a member of Perry’s team encouraged her to take a break, but in a moment of strength and vulnerability, she chose to continue the discussion.
“I feel ashamed that I would have those thoughts, feel that low and that depressed,” Perry admitted, also sharing that she wrote a song about her experience according to Cosmopolitan.
She went on and discussed the divide she has felt between the public persona of "Katy Perry" and how she, Katheryn Hudson, is in her private life with her family and close friends who know her.
“I’m a bit more nerdy than everybody think I am, I’m a big goofball,” Perry said.
Her forthcoming album, Witness, further explores the dichotomy of Perry’s public and private
“The fantasy of Katheryn went into Katy and made this bigger than life personality,” she said.
The singer explained that her new pixie cut was a reaction to this realization.
“I didn’t want to look like Katy Perry anymore,” she openly shared with Singh and her live stream.
