Chlöe Bailey is blowing up as a solo artist while finding herself along the way and she is OK with that. We’ve watched Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey grow up before our eyes from cute teenagers to beautiful women and with all the eyeballs on them, Chlöe is learning to be comfortable in her newfound fame particularly on social media.
The “Have Mercy” singer spoke with Charlamagne Tha God on his Tha God’s Honest Truth talk show about dealing with social media fame and her mental health.
"I am learning that I have to be full before I can give myself to others," the 23-year-old said.
"My mental health is very important. And when you constantly feel like you have to please people and put others before you, you will start to feel very insecure. I'm learning that it's OK to put myself first sometimes, and I will only give out love and only share love and then just keep it at that."
The über-talented star recently caught backlash for a now-deleted video that showcased her sucking on a lollipop.
Fans bashed her for trying too hard to be sexy, however, the singer took it all in stride. “In the beginning, it didn’t affect me. I’m human, of course, it affects me sometimes, but the reason why I deleted it wasn’t because of what people were saying, it's just I didn’t want people to go on my page and just see that.”
She added, “Social media is whatever. I’m 23, I’m a grown woman and I think it’s so cool how we can find ourselves and I’m finding myself right now and figuring out what serves me best. I’m just doing it under a microscope while all of you all get to do it without anyone watching.”
While she may have deleted the video, that doesn’t mean that it stopped the singer from posting sensual photos and videos.
In a November 30 post, Chlöe showcased her backside in “Have Mercy'' booty shorts and a sexy cutout dress on the 2021 AMA’s red carpet.
