Many people don’t realize it because of their wealth, fame, and privilege, but celebrities have feelings, and they are wounded by cruel remarks on social media just like the rest of us—ask Chloe Bailey. Chloe Bailey discussed how she copes with the hostility on social media and the pressure to be someone she isn’t during a recent sit-down conversation with Saweetie.
Saweetie sat down for a chat with Chloe Bailey on the latest episode of her YouTube series “ICY University,” and the two talked about a variety of topics via questions, but things took an inspirational turn when Chloe discussed how she deals with the reality of social media negativity and pressure to change who she is. “Yes, and I’d be lying if I said it didn’t,” Chloe answered when asked if she ever feels pressure from society to be someone other than her real self and, if so, how she handles it.
Every day, I believe you can see so many great comments, but then you’ll see one that really bothers you, and you’ll be thinking about it the rest of the day, wondering if you really need to change this aspect of yourself. Is it possible that I’m doing something incorrectly? ‘What the hell is going on?’ But it’s as though I’m not quite there yet, but I’m getting there.
As a result, I’m teaching it to myself as I utter it out loud. When I feel like I can’t handle it anymore, I pray, and then I remember that you are perfect just the way you are.” In other Chloe Bailey news, she confirmed earlier this week that she will make her formal solo debut performance at this year’s MTV VMAs with the first live performance of her popular unreleased track “Have Mercy,” as we previously reported.
