Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for REVOLTJust hours after Rolling Stone unveiled their second annual Women Shaping the Future cover issue, SZA took to Twitter to tell the world she was done with the media.
“Not doing any videos interviews or photos for the rest of my life lol don’t ask,” she wrote.
SZA appeared on the cover issue alongside Houston Hotties Megan Thee Stallion and Normani, who she called her sisters. “S/O to Normani and Meg tho. My sisters who I love very much and respect deeply,” she said. “Honored to be a part of ANYTHING w the two of those Black queens.”
The singer went on to discuss her mental health issues in her adolescent years. She said “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. Some fans responded with messages of love and support for the TDE-signee, while many questioned why more and more “new” celebs are openly addressing their anxiety issues.
Last year, R&B singer Summer Walker ended her First and Last Tour early due to her public battle with social anxiety. SZA responded saying, “Lmao new? “Celebs” been out here dying of addiction and depression for DECADES. Be glad Ppl are TALKING to each other 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.”
She followed up posting a photo from inside a recording studio telling everyone it’s, “Where I belong.”
SZA is expected to drop her sophomore album in 2020, to follow her platinum debut album CTRL, featuring hit singles “Broken Clocks,” “Garden (Say It Like Dat),” “Love Galore” and “The Weekend.”
