SZA Talks Growing Up Muslim And Why She Regrets That She Stopped Wearing A Hijab

Published: Monday 26th Apr 2021 by Ryan

SZA is getting candid.

The ‘Good Days’ singer recently did a Q&A on TikTok, where she spoke about her experiences growing up as a Muslim girl and how her life changed after September 11, 2001.

Full story below…

She described her secluded upbringing:

“The experience was very microcosmic, very insulated, very much like you don’t know that no one else is practicing the same thing if you’re Black and in the suburbs because you’re kind of in your bubble. I guess I didn’t realize that things were weird and awkward until I got a lot older.”

SZA then went on to explain why she stopped wearing her hijab and its relation to Islamophobia after the terrorist attacks on September 11:

“I regret so much—like, being afraid or caring what people said about me, or in high school feeling like if I didn’t cover all the time that I can’t start covering some of the time.”

“And I did start covering again in high school, and then they were like, ‘What is this? You don’t live your life properly. You’re not really Muslim. Shut up.’ I always let somebody dictate how I was.”

She then went on to express there are times when she still has a desire to wear her hijab and to dress more modestly.

“I remember the other day even talking to Punch, my manager, and being like, ‘Oh, I want to wear a hijab. I wonder if I could.'”

“We played Malaysia and Indonesia, and it was really comforting to be able to cover up for those shows. I didn’t feel like anybody would judge me or was going to say that I was being fake. It was just part of the custom, where I’m amongst my own people, and they just accepted me as whatever.”

    If you regret not wearing it, THEN WEAR IT.

    We live in the age of the Victim Olympics…

  7. Hmmm… April 26, 2021

    Lol, this is so stupid. If she truly wanted to wear a hijab, she would wear a hijab. If you want to wear a hijab, but won’t because people will “judge” you, then you ARE being fake. Does she hear herself? You can cover up whenever you want. Nobody is forcing you to do anything.

  8. Unnatural April 26, 2021

    It’s sad because most of the judgments coming from her own. And we wonder why we can’t progress.

    • True Tea April 27, 2021

      No honey the BC allow Black people to do & say whatever. She know exactly why she had to remove the hijab. The Muslim community would have went in on her. A muslim woman cannot sing ‘skrt skrt on neegas, I don’t trust these b*tches’ while wearing a hijab. Have you seen her videos?

      • Miss Thang 💅🏽 (Shayla Queen 👑) April 27, 2021

        🤣🤣🤣

      • THE TRUTH April 27, 2021

        LOL SO TRUE 😂
