The 32-year-old singer opened up about her struggles with alcoholism that affected her decision-making ability. The singer revealed her struggle with alcohol explaining that at one point she was living like a robot, saying that she wasn’t able to recognise herself anymore with depression setting in;

“I became a person of horrible choices. I COULDN’T´t recognize myself anymore because I woke up every day trying to just get by and I don´t want to just get by anymore.”

“More than ever, I had moments of anxiety and moments of depression. I had moments of I don´t know what to do next, because this pressure is unnatural for a human being. And what comes after that?”

She added that like addicts before her she was very good at hiding her issues from the public but that she was living a lie.

“I hid it so well but I was depressed and an alcoholic. This is my truth and me letting you into this space because I don´t want to live a candy-coated life anymore.

I became a robot and I have no desire to be a robot or be unhappy anymore, because that´s what I was, unhappy. Had moments of ¨we are enjoying this¨, I had moments of ¨this is fun¨, moments of ¨this is a beautiful day¨.”
