Pia Mia leans up against a mirror in this hot shot from her feature on Nylon.com.
The 19-year-old singer opened up about her music, inspiration and just how to cure a broken heart. Check it:
On when she knew music was her passion: “The first time I stepped on stage, I knew that was it for me. I was very shy growing up, and singing was the only place I could truly be myself, be vulnerable, and share my heart with people. Feeling at home on stage, at such a young age, solidified music as my passion.”
On how she finds inspiration: “I think you can find inspiration in anything. I pull a lot of inspiration through my life. Everything I sing about is very true to who I am, my experiences, and how I feel during that time of my life.”
On her recipe in how to get over a broken heart: “Take time for yourself to heal and grow from the experience, but also to reflect on what the lesson is. I always overthink things, like how it went wrong and what I could have done to prevent it. Sometimes I start feeling sorry for myself. These are the things you should try not to do, though. Don’t be too hard on yourself. In the end, I believe in true love and destiny and that what’s meant to be, will be, and that gets me through the hardest days. The most important thing is to be thankful to have felt what love is or could be, and allow time to heal everything.”
On best advice she’s been given: “I’ve gotten a lot of good advice on my journey, but two things have stuck with me and constantly continue to ring true. One is that whatever’s meant to be, will be. As long as we are kind, do right by people, and work hard for the things we love, then we will always find the success that is meant for us. The second thing is that the more positive your outlook, the more positive the outcome.”
