Rebecca Black Says It's Hard To Watch Old YouTube Videos

Rebecca Black is opening up about finding herself!

The 23-year-old YouTube star recently dished to Teen Vogue about mental health, her sexuality and more. Check it out:

On still working to figure out exactly who she is: “It’s hard for me to go back and watch some of my older YouTube videos. Some of them are my most viewed videos. There is an essence of who I am in them, but there became a time, probably around 17, that I … put more importance on pleasing and entertaining people so they would like me, more than on being myself, which is why I started [YouTube] in the first place.”

On finding a version of herself she’s proud of: “There’s always been a thread I’ve been able to hold onto, but that doesn’t mean along the way I’ve always been myself. That might be why it looks like I’ve been constantly reinventing myself. I lost touch with that for a while and I’ve gotten back in touch with it over time — that sureness. I’ve really spent the last five years trying to get that sense of self back.”

On worrying that people wouldn’t think her sexuality was real: “I’ve had a lot of people in my life tell me, ‘that doesn’t sound like a real thing,’ and it is. For me, in my own conversation with myself, it wasn’t that hard to accept that I could love a man just as much as a woman or any person, regardless of their gender. I can look at my life and have experience of both. I don’t question my own [feelings], but it is a difficult conversation at times.”
