She Believes In Kindness


King opened up about her life and career in an interview with Vogue. She says that she always tries to be a kind person, and this stems from her childhood. "My mother is very pretty but she's also very kind," King explained. "So I always had this feeling in me, like, 'You have no excuse, just because you're pretty, you don't get to be mean.' "

King notably made a bunch of posts on social media talking about her mental health and wellbeing. She tells Vogue that she was lucky to receive a lot of support and help from her followers. "I was really just reaching out for anything—any kind of response," she says. "What I got was this beautiful flush of connection and people saying, 'I hear you,' and sharing their stories with me. I realized then that when you're honest and vulnerable and genuine, people will accept you." 


She Has Grown As A Person


King tells Billboard that she believes she has grown a lot since becoming a mother. "Becoming a parent has made me grow in gratitude and empathy. I have a lot more forgiveness for the world, but also a lot more things I demand from the world. I'm proud that we get to call Nashville home. There is this sense of community with so many artists and creatives."


She's Comfortable With Herself

King tells Billboard that she feels like she has gotten to a place where she is comfortable with herself. "I've always felt that the biggest hurdle blocking my own success or my joy or a healthy relationship, even a healthy relationship with self, was me. The last year and a half, I've been trying to work through the layers of doubt, guilt. Now, I feel more comfortable to take a layer off and show myself more. I do like to stay up late. Yes, I talk shit and run my mouth. But I'm also a warm, loving person."


She's All About Body Positivity

King tells Billboard that she has become a lot more comfortable with herself and with her body. "But there is no one size that you have to be to express yourself in clothes or with fashion. You can be absolutely any size and find something that makes you feel beautiful. Me being bold with some of my outfits helped me find comfort in my body."
