Charli XCX Says Social Media Criticism Of Her Album Rollout Has Taken A Toll On Her Mental Health

Since last year, Charli XCX has been releasing her next studio album, Shockwhich will be out in March. Most recently, she released the Rina Sawayama collaboration “pray for you“; it also just leaked that she is attached to act in After the party, “the world’s first NFT-controlled arts and music festival” taking place in Las Vegas next month. This morning, the pop star posted a statement on her social media accounts talking about the toll negative comments from the public have taken on her mental health.

“I’ve always had a pretty open dialogue with you guys so I just want to mention a few things that have been on my mind recently,” Charli XCX wrote in her statement. “I’ve been feeling like I can’t do anything right at the moment. I know social media isn’t exactly a haven for kindness and positivity, but overall I’ve always felt pretty safe with you guys here.” She continued:

I’ve noticed lately that some people seem pretty mad at me: about the songs I’ve chosen to release, about the way I’ve decided to launch my campaign, about the things I need to do to fund what’s going to be the biggest tour I’ve ever done. , for the things I say, the things I do, etc. I have been dealing with my mental health a lot in the last few months and it obviously makes the negativity and criticism harder to deal with when you find it and of course I know this is a common struggle for most people in this day and age. But yeah anyway… I just wanted to jump in here and say hey I’m really here doing my best and working hard to make stuff that’s exciting and exciting and honestly there’s a lot more crazy stuff to come 😉!

In the meantime, I’m thinking of tweeting from afar when I feel like saying something and having someone else post it, just for a while, because I really can’t handle it here right now. Eternal love, Charlie x

Shock It’s out March 18 via Asylum/Atlantic. A video for “Beg For You” will be out tomorrow.
