In a new interview with Australian show "The Project," the pop-star goes into detail about the suicidal thoughts she referenced in the lyrics to her song "By The Grace of God." At one point in the song, Katy sings, “Couldn't take it anymore… I looked in the mirror and decided to stay / Wasn't gonna let love take me out that way.”
"Sometimes you can be blinded by your extreme emotions," explained Katy. "I definitely was looking for answers during that time I wrote that song. And yeah, I was depressed, and it was sad, and there were thoughts, but there were never actions, thankfully."
