KATY PERRY has confessed she suffered dark thoughts about ending her life following the breakdown of her marriage to RUSSELL BRAND.

The Firework hitmaker has opened up about the months after the British comic filed for divorce in December 2011, branding them the lowest point of her life.

She also reveals new track By The Grace of God, which features on her upcoming album Prism, explains how bad her mood got.

In an interview with Billboard, she says, "That song is evident of how tough it really was at a certain point. I asked myself, 'Do I want to endure? Should I continue living?'

"All the songs are real-life moments. I can only write autobiographically. I put all the evidence in the music. I tell my fans if they want to know the real truth about stuff, just listen to the songs."

Perry and Brand's divorce came just a year after they married in India. The singer is now dating John Mayer.
