Katy Perry sat down with "Today's" Natalie Morales during her 96-hour YouTube livestream, and she elaborated on her comments from over the weekend about having suicidal thoughts.
Katy admits that she sort of created a character of "Katy Perry" because, "for a long time, I didn't feel like old Katheryn Hudson from Santa Barbara was anything special," saying that her character has "done really well."
As for those low points, Katy said, "It's not just been a one time that I've felt really low," explaining, "I have my own addictions that I struggle with, whether that's love or substance or things like that, and it's up and down. Or, even just attention, you know? I get so much attention and that can become addiction."
Katy also talked about her feud with Taylor Swift, denying that her latest single "Swish Swish," was about Taylor. "No, it's not about anyone in particular and I've said that on the record," Katy said. Natalie continued to try and press her, even mentioning Taylor by name, to which Katy said, "That might be your story, but my story, which I know is true for me, is that I've had not just one person bully me or one person hold me down or met one troll. All I need to say to her is I love her, and God bless her on her journey."
