Divorce is undeniably tough for everyone involved, so many affected parties seek comfort in their families, friends or careers. Others, like Katy Perry, seek comfort at the bottom of a Cheetos bag.
In the January issue of Marie Claire, Perry opened up about her split with ex-husband Russell Brand, explaining the unique way she dealt with her emotions and the endless media scrutiny. "There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, 'OK. All right. I can't feel this. This is too intense right now,'" Perry told the publication. "I was, like, just eating Flamin' Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that's it."
Perry's producing partner Greg Wells added that she "felt so kicked in the head and so publicly embarrassed at being divorced by a text message." He also thought she was going to lock herself in her bathroom forever.
Fortunately, Katy was able to channel her emotions into "By the Grace of God," a song off her latest album, "Prism."
"There are two ways you can go," she further explained. "You can either nurture yourself or go destructive. I have gone down the destructive path before, and that didn't work for me. 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 prayer and good friends."
