Katy Perry opens up about life after her 2017 breakup from Orlando Bloom

Katy Perry recently opened up about one of the most difficult times in her life. The 35-year-old pop star got honest about how she felt during her brief breakup from Orlando Bloom in 2017. While the two are now happily engaged and expecting their first child together, Katy recalled when things weren't picture-perfect. "I lost my smile," the songstress said in a recent interview with CBC Radio One. "I don't know if my smile was ever fully mine, but I was riding on the high of a smile for a long time which was the validation, love and admiration from the outside world. My career was on this trajectory when it was going up, and then I had the smallest shift. For me it was seismic," she explained. "I had broken up with my boyfriend, who is now my baby’s daddy-to-be. It was so important for me to be broken so that I could find my wholeness in a different way," she expressed.
