Billboard got the exclusive snippet of the interview..
."I was awkward. I’m super sensitive, and my mother made me extra sensitive because she’s just so unapologetically loving. I’ve realized some people don’t hug in their families, or say that they love each other all day. My family tells me they love me all day; I’m hyper-affectionate, laying it on other people, just because it’s what we do in my house."
she goes on to say...
"But in the world, that was weird, and it was really difficult to be super sensitive and hyper-open," she said. "It was just frightening. I guess my mom represented something that made me feel weak. I felt like, this is why I’m hurt. When I got older, I realized, Oh shit, the whole world is wrong and my mom is right."
Jada Pinkett-Smith praises the songstress for being in touch with femininity and the pureness of it, she says "It’s beautiful that you see the power, the feminine spirit, in your mother—in a world where the feminine is really kind of degraded, not respected in its truest form."
