In an interview with MTV News, she explains what gave her the green light to put her love on display.
“You know what it is? Let me just say this. I’ve had my experience over the years and I had to learn a lot. you put yourself in a position where people are going to be able to judge and give their opinion and that’s something I used to always fear. I’m in a place where I’m facing my fears … I’m running toward my fears. If i live my life based off those things, I won’t live it to the fullest. So that’s where I am at this day and time in my life. I’m also with someone who makes it extremely comfortable for me to be that way. If you love somebody you should express it. Now I understand it,” she says.
She also adds: “There’s nothing sexy about hiding your love. It feels good to be so free!”
