'My Confidence Comes From Within': Saweetie Reveals Why She Did The Big Chop

Last year, right before the New Year, Saweetie debuted a freshly shaven head on Instagram to the surprise of many fans. The “Icy Grl” was on a tropical vacation and shared several photos of her lounging around in a bikini while she let the sun shine down on her bald head.


She hadn’t addressed why she decided to do the big chop until now. The Bay area native appeared on The Real and disclosed what inspired her to say bye-bye to her locks and her reason is what many women can relate to.

“I just feel like I’m at a very transitional point in my woman life, my human life, my artist life and I wanted to start fresh,” she said. While she was toying with the idea to chop off her hair, she expressed the desire to a few people and someone questioned whether or not she would still be attractive if she cut it off.

“Someone had told me, ‘Are you still gonna be pretty? What if you don’t look good after the big chop?’ And I’m like, that’s not what it’s about,” she said. “It’s about the energy that I’m going to be releasing and my confidence doesn’t come from my looks, my confidence comes from within. It made me want to cut my hair even more.”

The two-time Grammy-nominated artist is wearing the haircut well, but just like a lot of women, she also likes to switch up her hairstyle and rock wigs as well. When it comes to confidence, Saweetie has plenty of it. So much so, that she taught a class about it.

In January, Saweetie uploaded a video of herself hosting a Pretty B.I.T.C.H (Boss, Independent, Tough, CEO, and Hyphy) Renaissance Workshop in anticipation of her Pretty Bitch Music album. In the workshop, she gave her students the real meaning of being pretty. “Pretty is like your aura,” she said in the video. “It’s your confidence. It’s how you treat other people.”

On The Real, she also dished on what motivated her to do the workshop. “Through this metamorphosis of Saweetie, I want to share what I’ve learned. So when I say Pretty B.I.T.C.H Magic, it’s about your aura, your self-esteem, your confidence. I just love to teach women what I’ve learned.”

Love On The Brain: What Science Says Loving Someone Does To You Mentally

I dig science. A big part of the reason why is because I really enjoy researching the “whys” of things. While my father always liked that about me, my mother oftentimes had something slick to say about it (that’s another message for another time, chile). To me, it’s whatever. For better or for worse, I’m simply not someone who accepts that the sky is blue “just because” — put it on my daddy’s DNA, I guess; with no apologies in place, I almost always want to know why something is the way that it is.
