Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Need a Break from Each Other

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom function just perfectly, and their secret is quite simple: “a little space.”

In Tuesday night’s episode (March 25) of American Idol, Perry had the role of judge for couple Jonny West and Margie Mays. After their performance, which did not go so well, Katy shared an essential part of her relationship with Orlando Bloom that helped them succeed as a couple. They respect each other by offering some space whenever necessary.

“One thing that’s going very well in my current relationship—yes, I did secure the ring—one thing I have noticed that is areally helpful is 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, okay?”

It seems to be good advice since Perry and Bloom are expecting their first child together. Katy announced the news in her “Never Worn White” video, where she displayed her baby bump. Since then, she has been very open about her pregnancy as well as about her relationship with Orlando.

Even though it sounds like a great idea, they will have to spend a lot of time together for their little one.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
