Charli XCX: fame has not made me happy

Charli XCX says that celebrity did not bring him “happiness”.

The 27-year-old singer became the center of attention when she appeared in Iggy Azalea’s single “Fancy” in 2014, and said that if this opportunity allowed her to experience “a whirlwind of pop star”, she would not do it. . Do not say that it has brought you “creative satisfaction”.

She said: “[” Fancy “was] a real pop star.” Whirlwind st. It allowed me to see the world, to travel and to watch wacky TV shows. It was incredible. It shaped me as an artist. But brought me happiness and creative fulfillment? No ”

Charli insists there is a “difficulty in being creative” and says he often feels the pressure of being “100% in his game all the time”.

He added, “People do not usually talk about the kind of difficulty of being creative … I’m not always happy, I’m not stable all the time and I do not want to pretend that I am. people who follow me and do not worry about my music, know that I do not feel 100% in my game all the time, and it’s okay. ”

And the successful creator “Boys” now ensures that she makes professional decisions that allow her to do her own “thing” rather than those that guarantee her “commercial success”.

She said, “Do I want fame, do I want commercial success, or do I want to do my thing, not play, and make music that interests me?” more and more, I’m making decisions for him. ”

Charli wants to explore his mental health through his music, and said that putting his “depression” and “insecurities” in the song had been “therapeutic”.

In the September 2019 digital edition of Spin magazine, the singer of ‘Flash Pose’ said, “[I’m writing] my thoughts and feelings about my mental state and what life is supposed to be as that artist, my depression, my feelings, insecurities, I am more honest than ever, it has been very therapeutic. “
