Everybody hurts sometimes, including glamorous celebs whose lives often appear to be perfect.

Take the bubbly Katy Perry, for instance, a pop star who often has a smile on her face. Despite Perry's positive demeanor, the singer has experienced some seriously dark days, especially when she split from her ex, Russell Brand.

In a recent interview, Katy revealed:

"I wanted to share that side of my story because I know there are so many other people out there that have gone through things like that, and you always feel like you're the only one going through it."

While we're sad to hear that Katy went through such a difficult time, we also commend her for opening up about her struggles because it helps combat the stigma against people who suffer from mental illness.

Sadly, Katy isn't the only celeb who has suffered from depression…

Comedian Tig Notaro Performed Topless To Show Off Double Mastectomy Scars… And Was Hospitalized For Medical Emergency Just Days Later

| Filed under: InspirationHealthFunnyAmazing

Have you heard of stand-up comedian Tig Notaro?

She's one seriously funny woman who once did a stand-up comedy show the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer!

Tig is one of the bravest, strongest women we've ever heard of. She did something most people literally have nightmares about: went up on stage and forgot her underwear. On purpose!!

Tig performed topless at Town Hall in NYC just last Thursday.

It wasn't just brave, it was beyond that. It was a statement. Tig had a double mastectomy to treat her cancer and never had reconstructive surgery.
