Normani Opens Up About When She Realized She Was 'Enough'

Normani Opens Up About When She Realized She Was 'Enough'

Normani dazzles in this hot shot from her cover story with the December/January issue of Cosmopolitan.

The 23-year-old “Motivation” songstress opens up about her music, the moment she stepped outside her comfort zone and more. Check it:

On realizing she was enough: “I’m not sure what that turning point was, but I was like, Normani is enough. You can be onstage and perform and you can be enough.”

On her hit music video: “I told the director, ‘I want this to be as black as possible.’ I was like, let’s show black culture. Why does pop music have to be so white? Why don’t we make it a little bit more me?”

On making mistakes: “There are a lot of moments where I feel like I have no room to make mistakes. I could fall down a million times, but that is not enough for me, ever. I’m gonna get back up.”

On her art: “Those women before me, I wanna finish what they started…I’m gonna make whatever I do black. You’ll know that I’m a black girl, even if it’s on the quote unquote whitest record ever.”

Normani Named First Ever Ambassador for Savage X Fenty

Normani is now the official face for Rihanna‘s fashion brand, Savage X Fenty!

The 23-year-old “Motivation” singer chatted with Vogue about her new role with the fashion label.

“I was very excited and really honored, especially that the ask came from Rihanna herself,” Normani shared. “I know that this is her passion project, something she genuinely and wholeheartedly believes in and cares about, and the fact that she wanted me to be a part of that meant a lot to me.”

She continues, “She is somebody I’ve looked up to for a very, very long time. She’s had so much influence on me in terms of pop culture and as a woman, but also in terms of how she’s able to do things gracefully while being cutting edge, being bold, pushing the needle, and changing the narrative.”

“I think that being a part of Savage X Fenty is an amazing opportunity for me to show women that I’m also here for them too. I love how inclusive the brand is,” Normani adds. “Being a part of the show and being able to have the opportunity to dance and do what I love was so powerful.

Hailey Bieber Defends Normani After Troll Slams Her Halloween Costume: 'Stop Being Racist'

Hailey Bieber Defends Normani After Troll Slams Her Halloween Costume: 'Stop Being Racist'

Hailey Bieber is calling out a “racist” critic who went after Normani.

The model gave a piece of her mind in the comments section of the “Dancing With A Stranger” singer’s recent Instagram post, in which she shows off her Cher costume for Halloween.

The troll commented, “I don’t think this is the right costume for a black girl, Cher is white and Cher was thing, Cher did a lot you not even close to her you black people think you own everything not fair you could’ve been beyonce or rihanna or janet but no cher cher is white respect her [sic].”

“There is absolutely nothing wrong with Normani dressing up as Cher for Halloween,” Hailey Bieber wrote. “What do you mean by the first sentence? She can do it because she wants to, she is doing much better than you, you’re behind a computer complaining about a costume. Stop being racist and get out of her page if you don’t like it. It’s 2019 and you’re still supporting the garbage of Trump, Marta.”
