Last week, Katy Perry inadvertently broke a man鈥檚 heart when he was duped into believing he had been dating the pop star for six years via the Internet. In fact, he was so smitten with his online paramour that he bought her an engagement ring.

PHILADELPHIA, PA - JULY 28: Singer Katy Perry performs during the fourth day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center, July 28, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received the number of votes needed to secure the party's nomination. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Philadelphia, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Democratic National Convention kicked off July 25.

Though Katy says she hasn鈥檛 read the story in its entirety (鈥淚 didn鈥檛 like to indulge in that because my heart would die,鈥 she said), she DID have some thoughts on the sad scenario, which she shared with The Morning Mash XM radio show.

鈥淚 just think it鈥檚 really unfortunate and sad. My heart goes out to him. People have dreams, and people live in different parts of the world where not everything is always so accessible. We live on the coasts, and we get stuff in a way that some other people don鈥檛 get, and I feel bad for him.鈥

While we鈥檙e not entirely sure what she means by that, our best guess is that she understands his need to believe in the impossible 鈥 after all, becoming an internationally known pop star isn鈥檛 exactly the most practical of aspirations for the majority of us, is it?

Kudos to Katy for taking the high road and being empathetic: Spencer, for one, surely appreciates it, tweeting the following in response to a message that says 鈥淵our girl鈥檚 got your back.鈥

That鈥檚 the spirit, Spencer!
