“It’s a lot of who I am and what I want to talk about. I’m sure that there will be allusions to all sorts of stuff going on right now once I sit down and start creating the body of work that I want to put out,” Lauren told Teen Vogue. “For now, I’m very focused on Fifth Harmony. We’re making an album right now. We’re chilling. We’re so happy and we’re moving forward. I’m really excited for this chapter for us to be able to close that and do us.”
Lauren often talks to the other 5H ladies about what’s going on in Washington.
“I tell them everything. I’m like, ‘Guys, Trump just signed another executive order. We need to know what’s going on.’ They’re also super-aware and they also are super-passionate about this stuff, too, in their own way,” Lauren said.
But what does she do to wind down and not get overwhelmed by everything?
“I try to be as mindful as possible and focus on love,” she said. “I feel much calmer if I meditate for an hour and surround myself with my crystals, and I just sit there for a second and cry if I have to. That makes me feel better.”
