Check out Normani!
The rising star shines on the December cover of Women’s Health.
Lensed by Dennis Leupold, the scorching spread is paired with an interview.
During the feature piece, the stage blazer opens up about mental health and confidence – as well as her long-awaited solo album debut.
Peep pics and quotes below…
On Her “Empowering” New Album:
“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 a record did for them,” she says. “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.”
On Early Struggles In Fifth Harmony:
“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.”
On The Stage Being Her Safe Place:
“I’m at home when I’m onstage. I don’t feel misunderstood, judged, like I have to fit inside a barrier. I feel like I can be anything.”
