SZA took to Twitter on Wednesday to make a surprising announcement about her relationship with the media.
"Not doing any videos Interviews or photos for the rest of my life," the TDE songstress wrote. "Lol don’t ask."
Though SZA didn't explain what led to the decision, her tweet was posted just hours after Rolling Stone unveiled the cover for its second annual Women Shaping the Future issue. SZA appeared on the cover alongside Megan Thee Stallion and Normani, both of whom promoted the issue on their respective Instagrams. As of Wednesday night, SZA had not shared the cover on any of her social media accounts, leading some fans to believe she was unhappy with the issue.

SZA did, however, give a shout out to Meg and Normani, insisting it was an honor to work with them.
SZA went on to speak about her mental health and her ongoing battle with anxiety. The 29-year-old told her followers that her struggles had very little to do with outside opinion, and primarily stemmed from her inner thoughts.
While some fans responded with messages of support, others tried to dismiss SZA's statements as "annoying" and questioned why anxiety was such a big issue among "new celebs." SZA responded to the latter comment:
SZA is expected to drop her sophomore album—the follow-up to 2017's Ctrl—later this year.
