Perry told romance radio host Delilah Rene that her text habit inspired single, “Save as Draft”.
“I’ve been in that cycle before in a relationship and it had kind of reignited the relationship, and there’s only so many times you can reignite the relationship or want to or should and sometimes you just need to write it and never send it. It’s just that exercise — that cathartic exercise.”
On Monday, Perry also revealed whether her infamous feud with Taylor Swift had come to an end, admitting that she’d “love for the beef to end. I’d love to take it off the barbecue.”
“I’m down,” she continued. “But, I haven’t heard anything of it.”
Perry’s The Witness Tour kicks off on Sept. 19 in Montreal, Quebec, and,on Sunday, the singer will host and perform at MTV’s 2017 VMAs.
