“Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. But I want to give a voice to these other pieces of me. And I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like,” she wrote.
Fans called the singer courageous and brave for sharing her story, saying it made them feel less alone in facing their own challenges.
‘Know you are not alone’
“It’s been quite an activating day, I have to say, to sit in all of this and to allow myself to be seen so deeply. I know there’s so many out there who relate to this, and relate to me — and I relate to you and everything that you’re going through,” she said.
“Just know that. Know that you’re not alone. That was my main reason for wanting to share so vulnerably, as I know so many people are struggling and do struggle with psoriasis amongst many, many other things,” she said.
“I wanted to share in our humanness. So just know that you are loved, and you are worthy, as I tell myself the same thing over and over again. Just thank you for the love.”
