Katy Perry recently dissed out some candid relationship advice, and with the current situation we’re all in, it was definitely something those of us quarantined with significant others needed to hear.

Though the singer and her fiancé Orlando Bloom have an amazing relationship, Perry took the time to share the one thing that makes their romance as solid as it is. And get this, it’s just the simple act of giving each other space.

Perry shared her valuable advice on ‘American Idol’

Being in an on-and-off-again romance with Bloom has taught Perry a lot about relationships.

But one major lesson she took away her experience with the actor is that space is necessary for them to stay at their best and keep their relationship going strong.

During the Mar. 23 episode of American Idol, the “Dark House singer shared this advice with competing couple Margie Mays and Jonny West after they gave a performance that was not positively received.

Though Perry and Bloom don’t sing together, she told the couple that carving out time to themselves is a must in any relationship.

“One thing that’s going very well in my current relationship—yes, I did secure the ring—one thing I have noticed that is really helpful giving each other a little space,” she said. “In this competition, it’s great to have understanding and partnership and to be teammates and support each other. But this time is about fulfilling your personal dreams. Just know your priorities right now. Because I think both of you kind of suffered in what you showed a little bit. We know you’re both better than what you gave, ok?”

While Perry didn’t dive into how often she and Bloom take time out for themselves now that they’re engaged, it definitely seems like giving each other space has worked wonders for their relationship over the years.

The couple was on-and-off before getting engaged

The first time Bloom and Perry took a break from each other was back in 2017. After just ten months of dating, the couple decided to call off their relationship.

Soon after news of their split made headlines, the pair’s reps released a joint statement explaining that the couple split simply because they needed time apart.

“Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” the statement read.

In spring 2018, Perry and Bloom rekindled their romance. Then in February 2019, the pair announced their engagement.

Today, Bloom and Perry are still living blissfully as an engaged couple and are looking forward to starting their lives together as husband and wife.

But marriage isn’t the only milestone the couple’s excited to experience later this year. On Mar 5, Perry revealed in her “Never Wore White” music video that she’s pregnant with her and Bloom’s first child.

“I’m excited, we’re excited, and happy,” Perry said on her Instagram Story. “It’s probably the longest secret I’ve ever had to keep. I thought I would tell you guys in the best way through a piece of music.”

Though we’re pretty sure Perry and Bloom won’t be spending much time apart once their baby arrives, it seems like the couple’s relationship is in such a good space that they won’t even need to.
