SZA has bravely opened up on her “debilitating anxiety” after performing at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.
The singer, who rocked a black bodycon dress with some major cut-outs to the ceremony, shared pictures with fans and admitted that she hates “being outside more than I can explain.”
“I really have debilitating anxiety and I’m only posting these cause Y’all woulda found em anyway . Thank you to my team n my mama. Least I’m alive,” SZA shared.
In the behind the scenes pictures of the event, SZA shows off the Monot dress she wore, which featured some incredible detailing, from the string halterneck to the strategically placed cutouts that began under the chest and hit the hip. The dress also had a hip-high split, and in the video the singer could be seen using her hand to keep it from slipping too far the wrong way.
SZA also performed on the night with Doja Cat, with the pair debuting their hit single “Kiss Me More.”
The pop-hit currently holds the No. 5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
SZA has scored nine top-10 hits on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart, including her number-one hit, “The Weekend,” as well as four top 10s on the Hot 100. Her album CTRL debuted on top of Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart. Doja, meanwhile, has six top-40 hits, including the number-one single “Say So,” and her sophomore album Hot Pink reached number nine.
SZA, 30, however, has also been teasing new music with the release of singles “Good Days” and “Hit Different,” but fans are still waiting on a follow up to the critically acclaimed album CTRL.
The BBMAs were hosted by Nick Jonas and aired Sunday night on NBC. Drake received the Artist of the Decade Award at the ceremony.
