Check out Normani, she is feeling like a ‘BO$$.’
In the latest issue of Women’s Health, ‘Motivation’ singer talked about mental health and confidence as well as her long-awaited solo album debut.
Normani spilt a little about her upcoming album she said, “For a long time, I was stressed out about checking boxes like, ‘Is this Black enough? Is this pop enough?’ But music started feeling way better when I just went into the studio with the mentality of being Normani. People will always remember how you made them feel and what record did for them. My lyrics have more depth, and they’re more intentional and come from a more authentic place because I now feel more connected to myself than before.”
She opened about her early struggles in Fifth Harmony saying, “Having certain things happen so blatantly while also feeling like the ‘other’ and being so young and hearing the public compare [us] took a toll on my confidence. For a long time, I didn’t believe in myself because I didn’t feel like I was given the opportunity to. It’s been meaningful to let people know that despite being in the position I’m in, I’m affected the same way. ”
Normani also revealed that her safe place is being on stage, “I’m at home when I’m on stage. I don’t feel misunderstood, judged like I have to fit inside a barrier. I feel like I can be anything.
Hopefully, in the next few years, I’ll have lived a little bit more figured out. But if I don’t, I’m okay. I don’t think we ever have it all figured out. But anything that God has placed on my heart, I want to be fearless in.”
