Speaking with Power 106’s Bryhana this week, the 2021 Complex cover star was asked about recently cutting off her hair, prompting a breakdown from the Pretty Bitch Music artist on how mindfulness inspired the move.
“Meditation, as crazy as it sounds, because I just found so much clarity within myself,” Saweetie said starting around the 6:06 mark in the video above. “I wanted to start over and I did research about hair and hair holds a lot of energy. And I really wanted to just feel new and fresh with this new music. I won’t say new me. But elevated me. I really just wanted to start over again.”
Asked to give a definition of “elevated Saweetie,” she continued: “She meditates, she’s centered, she has clarity, she knows what she wants, she puts her foot down. I feel like before I discovered meditation, everything was, ‘Yes yes yes, I’ll do it.’”
She added, “No matter how bad my body felt, if the opportunity was great, I just said yes and I kept running down my mental, my spiritual, my physical. But how am I gonna continue to work if I’m depleted?”
Nowadays, as she explained toward the end of the interview, Saweetie has been able to establish boundaries around both her mental and business spaces, which is something she advises “everyone” to do in their own lives.
