“For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick,” she explains. “Why I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people and why I felt highs that wouldn’t let me sleep, wouldn’t let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why.”
“I’m bipolar and I’m not ashamed anymore. That is all. (Crying my eyes out),” she adds.
The pop star who loves dabbling in country music says her diagnoses will play a role in her new music and be her favorite project ever because, “I’m not holding anything back. I love you all very much. And I hope you accept me as I am. I don’t want you to feel sorry for me. I just want you to accept me. That’s all.”
