Normani Kordei picks up a smoothie to go while out on Wednesday afternoon (May 18) in West Hollywood, Calif.
“It’s always pretty tricky, because we do consider ourselves to be models for the younger generation,” Normani shared about being portrayed as a role model. “That’s how we came into this as well, because I know that all of us look up to our idols, and we know that there are little girls and parents out there that look to us to guide them, in some type of way. We’re also people and growing women that are trying to find ourselves. We started this when we were 15, 16 and 19 years old. Now we’re 20, 18 and about to be 23. I think that there’s been a lot of growth throughout those years, and I think that it’s normal for us to try to find ourselves.”
She added about the group, “We’re sharing some of the best moments of our lives together. I don’t think any of us expected, going into X Factor, this being the result of it. I personally didn’t, and I’m really grateful for it. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, in the best way possible. Sometimes it can take a toll on us. It’s all about balance, focusing on the music, and whatever it is that makes us happy.”
