Katy Perry Reveals How Alcohol Detox Helped Her Get Out of 'Dark Place'

Katy Perry sat down with Britain's Alan Carr in an interview that will broadcast on Friday and candidly discussed how she underwent a cleanse to get through a difficult period in her life.

According to the Daily Mail, Perry said, "Yeah it's fun to laugh at it now, it wasn't fun to laugh at it then. You know, I was going through a period where a lot of negative thoughts were entering my mind, obviously they did not succeed, but I had my confidence kind of beaten down."

She reportedly added that instead of "pointing the finger," she thought, "Okay, how can I fix this?"

In addition to surrounding herself with good friends, our January cover star also said she did a cleanse where she didn't drink for three months. "That was devastating," she said. "I did vitamins and supplements, and hikes and meditation and prayer."

Perry, who underwent a divorce, a new relationship, a breakup, and a make-up in the past two years, also spoke of her recent highs and lows with Marie Claire. She said, "I feel like my secret magic trick that separates me from a lot of my peers is the bravery to be vulnerable and truthful and honest. I think you become more relatable when you're vulnerable. When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can't be fucked with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall."
