SZA is taking control, no pun intended, of her image.
Following the release of her shared Rolling Stone cover with Normani and Megan Thee Stallion, the 29-year-old singer, who is currently working on the sophomore follow-up to her 2017 debut album Ctrl, took to Twitter on Wednesday (February 19) to announce that she's done with media coverage.
"Not doing any videos Interviews or photos for the rest of my life lol don’t ask .👍🏾," she wrote, before adding, "S/o Normani and meg tho . My sisters who I love very much and respect deeply . Honored to be apart of ANYTHING w the two of those BLACK QUEENS . 🥺❤️🙏🏾👑."
While the R&B singer didn't reveal what exactly sparked her decision to do away with traditional publicity, she offered a bit of an explanation as to why she's doing it. "My anxiety has .03% to do w outside opinion . I was bullied all through high school I could care less . It’s my OWN THOUGHTS THAT HIT DIFFERENT," SZA shared.
The "All The Stars" singer went on to clapback at a fan who questioned why anxiety seems so prevalent among "new celebs."
"Lmao new ? 'Celebs' been out here dying of addiction and depression for DECADES," SZA wrote. "Be glad Ppl are TALKING to eachother and sharing rather than hiding. Also errbody dying on tv an the government broke the 4th wall ..pretty sure everyone’s fed up rn lol." The Grammy-nominated singer then concluded her Twitter sesh with a photo from inside the recording studio, which she captioned, "Where I belong."
