In a Twitter post by the singer, she wrote:

“I wrote the title track from the album when I was coming through one of the darkest periods of my life and had lost my smile. This whole album is my journey towards the light – with stories of resilience, hope, and love. ❤️”

Katy Perry Credits God

In the past month, Katy revealed how she fought off her suicidal thoughts. She apparently credits God for saving her from that dark season.

“But I found the ways to be grateful. Every morning I wake up and it’s the very first thing I say. ‘Thank you God for today, I am grateful in every way. If it gets really hard I walk around and say, I am grateful!’ … That’s been the light at the end of my tunnel,” she explained.

Then she added, “Hope has always been an option for me because of my relationship with God. If I’m the only one controlling my destiny, of course, it’s going to be like I’m going to drive it into the ground. My hope is that something bigger than me created me for a purpose and created me for a reason.”

Moreover, she told Sunday Times in a recent interview, “I’ve been through the journey, now I’m just enjoying the ride. I’m [no longer] a thirsty, desperate pop star that has to reach certain numbers in order to feel worthy. The overall definition of this record [her new album Smile] is getting my smile back.”


Katty Perry’s new song “Smile” is also the title of her recent album. Part of the song’s lyrics say:

“But every tear has been a lesson
Rejection can be God’s protection
Long hard road to get that redemption
But no shortcuts to a blessin’

Yeah, I’m thankful
Scratch that, baby, I’m grateful
Gotta say it’s really been a while
But now I got back that smile”

What Katy Perry went through has been tough but it was God who sustained her. And for that, the soon-to-be mom is grateful to God. Today, she is focusing on “delivering a healthy child.”
