She hit a low point in her life when her ex-husband Russell Brand asked for a divorce via text message in 2011, and now Katy Perry reveals details about the aftermath in the April 2014 issue of Marie Claire UK magazine.

During her interview with the publication, the "Dark Horse" songstress opened up about the infamous breakup and how she managed to push past all the drama.

"There are two way you can go: you can either nurture yourself or go destructive," Miss Perry explained about handling the Russell situation. "I have gone down the destructive path before, and that didn't work for me."

She continued, "You dig deep beyond those scars and find that soft tissue again, and you massage and nurture it and bring it to life, little by little, through serving yourself well. I did it through hikes and vitamins and therapy and pray and good friends."

In regards to other past struggles, Katy stated, "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 a supernatural figurine who can't be f***ked with, I always resort back to Scripture: pride comes before a fall," she added.
