Blackpink’s Rose opened up about mental health issues as the K-Pop star spoke at an event.
K-pop superstar Rosé on Friday attended a mental health awareness event hosted by first lady Jill Biden in California.
Rose said that it’s important for the world to understand that famous people grapple with emotional struggles, too.
“I think that would be very great, for everybody who works under the public eye,” she said.
The 26-year-old singer said that said having a large social media following makes her feel vulnerable, particularly when people are critical.
“I do feel like some of the things I do is just never enough, and no matter how hard I work on something, there’s always gonna be somebody who has their own opinion or who enjoys taking control of the narrative,” she said, adding “And so that comes to me as a sense of loneliness.”
She said it was important to talk about such things, however difficult it may be.
“Just as we feed ourselves for better health and fitness, mental health can only be maintained equally — if not more intentionally — as our physical well-being.”
