Alessia Cara joined Zach Sang for an appearance on his radio show, The Zach Sang Show. Zach asked Alessia questions about how she has handled success at her young age, and how she has tried to maintain some perspective about the pressures of touring and social media.
Alessia said she had tried to survive by keeping a sense of humor and picking off problems one by one. But she also talked about how exploring the general pressures and insecurities of growing up in today’s world was inspiring her current single “Trust My Lonely” and much of the other work that she put together for her album. That was particularly true, she said, because she was in a “weird, weird place that wasn’t healthy” when working on the music for her album — a place in which the pressures and insecurities that she felt suddenly seemed amplified.
The “dark place” that her life had become, Alessia added, stemmed from the fact that her fame at an early age had made her lifestyle so “abnormal:”
It’s really abnormal to be doing this … my life has completely changed … Being in the public eye and kind of having all these opinions about you that may not necessarily be who you are and these expectations and this responsibility … And I guess having to be responsibility for everybody around you … which is a whole other level of pressure.
And dealing with that and then personal things like relationships and all that weird twenties-stuff that happens … all that stuff mixed together … those things kind of catch up to you. And they kind of caught up to me all at once and I kind of crashed for a bit.”
