“I asked myself, ‘Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?’

She added: “I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs.”

Katy recently received the support of a rock legend for sending a message to her ex husband in her single, 'Roar'.

Fleetwood Mac star Stevie Nicks pronounced herself full of admiration for the song – an undisguised ode to survival.

“My favourite song right now... I'm so proud of her," Nicks told The Huffington Post. "I think that is such a girl power song, and I'm so happy that she's sending out messages to ex-husbands - who needs them?"
