“I’ve been feeling quite low throughout 2022, to be honest. I feel like my mental health has really taken a toll,” Aitchison said, becoming tearful during the interview.
“I’ve never cared if you like my music or hate my music – don’t listen to it if you don’t like it – but I think at a time when I was already feeling quite low, that kind of rhetoric honestly just really hurt my feelings,” she said. “There is this misconception that people in the public eye are able to take any shit that you throw at them and yes, we do have to learn how to handle negativity and criticism because it comes with the territory, but at the same time, everyone’s a fucking human being. I guess on that day that I messaged that I felt more human than ever.”
“As an extremely online artist,” interviewer Hannah Ewens wrote, “she understands that this is the nature of self-promoting yourself and your work on social media.”
Charli added to Rolling Stone UK: “The second you see something negative written about yourself, I feel like it’s like survival of the fittest to focus in on that and try to protect yourself from the threat, the negative potential danger, in a really animalistic type of way.”
The singer goes on a North American and European tour next month – check out the dates here.
