Katy Pery doesn’t want you texting your ex.
On an episode of Delilah Rene’s podcast “Conversations with Delilah”, Perry, 32, opened up about her song “Save As Draft” from her latest album “Witness” and how it’s a warning about getting back in touch with a former fling.
“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,” the singer admitted. “It’s just that exercise, that cathartic exercise,” she added.
The song is a lesson in controlling yourself when it comes to getting back in touch with someone who maybe wasn’t that good for you. Perry recommends saving all your texts or messages as drafts, getting a good night’s sleep and revisiting that message with a clear head the next morning.
“I like drafting and then sleeping on it because, for me, my emotions get very heightened in the evening and then in the morning when I wake up I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m so glad I didn’t send that! I can get through another day without this situation’,” she continued.
Some of Perry’s fans think the song may be about former flame John Mayer based on these tweets from the singer:
