Orlando Bloom's Proposal To Katy Perry Sounds Like The Most Romantic Disaster Ever

Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry officially announced their engagement earlier this month, and the actual proposal sounds like it was a doozy.


Perry stopped by the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live to dish on what it was like to be proposed to by Legolas himself.

Perry said the two went to dinner––and that she expected they'd head to an art show.

"But we pulled up to a helicopter," she said. She and Bloom boarded: There was champagne on hand for a toast.

"The box was in his pocket and he had written down everything he wanted to say in a note to divert -- he was gonna pull it out while I was reading it," she said.

Things went awry after Bloom tried to pull the tiny engagement ring box out of the even tinier pocket of his jacket. His elbow hit the champagne bottle in the process. It fell to the floor of the helicopter and shattered, sending shards of glass everywhere.

"And I'm like, 'No, I'm just reading the note. I know you're not doing anything,'" she said, saying that she was able to dismount from the helicopter and meet family members once they'd landed on a rooftop without further incident.

"My whole family was there, and all my friends... he did so well," she said lovingly.

You can watch Perry recall the memory below.

Take a look at that ring, by the way.

That story's adorable... and it's a pretty cute disaster. But love is love as they say.





Perry recalled that she and Bloom first fell in love after they bonded over an In-N-Out Burger at the Golden Globe Awards a few years ago.

"He stole one off of my table. I was sitting with Denzel Washington and he took it and I was like, 'Who...oh, you're so hot. Fine, take it,'" she said. "Then I saw him at a party and I was like, 'How are those onions resting on your molars?' He was like, 'I like you.' Then, you know, cut to!"

You never know, ladies and gents. The love of your life could be a burger snatcher. Get off Tinder right now and head to your nearest fast food restaurant.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
