“I’ve been very shy about my body from a very young age… to the point where I would not go to the beach in a bathing suit… I would say probably really tortured by it from the age of 10,” she said.

“I was 30 when I had my first radio hit… In that video, I’m braless, I’m allowing the platform of stepping out of my daily self into this world of video-making and making decisions that give me this freedom to, like, do things I wouldn’t normally do in my daily life.”

As far as posing naked, she said: “It meant, can I look at myself in the mirror with the lights on? Now, I’m really looking at myself and going, ‘Okay, look, things are sagging… All kinds of things that, you know, I don’t want to really show off.”

She faced her fears by posing topless for her “Waking Up Dreaming” single cover.

“I do this naked photo shoot and it changed everything for me,” she said.

“I want to be able to stand, but go, ‘Yes, I am a woman that is comfortable in her own skin. It’s not like I’m trying to show my nakedness to the world, I’m trying to show that confidence in your own nakedness is necessary.”

She also revealed a very serious health battle.
