Katy Perry Is Suffering Waves Of Depression While Pregnant In Lockdown

Katy Perry has revealed she's suffering from "waves of depression" amid the current coronavirus crisis.

The singer, 35, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 43, made the admission on Twitter on Tuesday.

"Sometimes i don't know what's worse trying to avoid the virus or the waves of depression that come with this new norm [sic]," she told her 108.5 million followers.


The mum-to-be announced she was expecting at the start of March in a snippet for her music video, 'Never Worn White', in which she revealed her bump.

It isn't the first time the 'Fireworks' singer has opened up about her mental health during her pregnancy.

While taking part in SHEIN's Together livestream event over the weekend, Katy told the host she has "good days" and harder ones, "where I cry when I look down at my toes or I cry when just doing simple tasks."

"I think a lot of that is hormonal and I'm not used to being around so many people all in a confined [or] a small space for so long. I'm used to going [out] all the time," she continued.


"There is not really anywhere to go besides my car. So I go to my car a lot. That is my safe space."

Shortly after announcing her pregnancy, the singer revealed the couple are expecting a baby girl.

Katy is currently isolating with Orlando in her home in Beverly Hills, where she has been filming at-home episodes of American Idol, for which she's a host.


She's gearing up for the release of her the first single from her fifth album, 'Daisies', which is premiering on Friday 15th May.

The album KP5 is planned for release on 14th August 2020.

We hope you feel better soon, Katy!
