Live Civil Thinking Cap: SZA Shares How Passion Kept Her Focused

By Posted on 0 1 m read

SZA

LIVE CIVIL: When deciding to pursue your career as a singer, there were people who told you how to should look and sound. What made you you think for yourself and record music true to your heart?

SZA: I was broke and living out a backpack on couches. I had nothing else to lose and myself was all I really had. I always felt like no one ever did anything or said anything to me more passionately than I spoke or did for myself. So I thought screw it, “Live and die by your own decisions. You’ll have no one to blame and no excuse.”

I never understood the word no. Once I discovered the word wasn’t real, just the sentiments behind it, every situation was pliable. Basically, my overly passionate broad delusions of “more” kept me focused.
