Katy Perry saved by song writing post elections
Pop star Katy Perry (left) got stuck into songwriting in a bid to get over the depression of the US election. The 32-year-old singer, who was an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton during the US presidential race, which eventually saw Republican candidate Donald Trump take the White House, said that she channelled her disappointment into her music and came out with her new song — Chained to the Rhythm.
“This was after the election and I was kind of depressed and, you know, I definitely didn’t want to write a club banger. I was like, ‘How are we writing a club banger when the world is on fire?’ It was a nice exercise of writing a song , and when you first listen to it, it’s a really fun song. But, I guess, the more you dive in to it, you realise that it has a different sub-text,” Perry said. The singer, who teamed up with Sia on the track, also praised her best friend for it.
