Willow Smith is getting candid.
During an appearance ‘The Yungblud Podcast,’ the ‘Transparent Soul’ songstress opened up about the struggles she has faced in her career and how they came off as “bratty.”
Her words below…
“For so long, I had a lot of fear. I felt extremely unsafe in my music career in the past and that feeling of insecurity or unsafety, like I didn’t feel protected, which went really deep. It’s interesting because all of those memories and emotions have just been resurfacing.”
She then went on to discuss her recent performance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ and the anxiety surrounding it, saying:
“I had like a flashback of being like 10 or 9 and having like an anxiety attack on set and basically feeling like everyone around me was like ‘You’re just a brat.’ ‘Why aren’t you grateful? They didn’t see it as an anxiety attack — they saw it as a tantrum, and now I look back and know it was an anxiety attack.”
Smith recently released her first endeavor into punk-pop with her ‘Lately I Feel Everything’ studio album (stream it here). The project featured icons such as Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame and Avril Lavigne.
