“Now I’ve come out the other side I feel very lost, overwhelmed and fragile. It seems I am unable to cope with even the most minuscule tasks without crumbling into panic or tears, and I constantly doubt myself and my purpose. I think it’s hit me so hard at this point in time because I have just let go of this body of work that was created in such an intense and emotional way, more so than anything I’ve ever made before,” she wrote in the update.

She recently revealed the backstory of her songs, including one indirectly inspired by Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck‘s relationship.
