Raven-Symone Says She Has Mental Issues
Raven-Symoné speaking candidly about some of the flaws that she has. In fact, the 31-year-old actress, who is currently promoting her new show ‘Ravens Home’, admits that she would have fewer “mental issues” if she had grown up in today’s society that embraces more body-positivity.
I wish I was living now as a younger person. I probably wouldn’t have so many mental issues.
I love embracing your body. In this day and age you have all kinds, and it’s funny, it’s serious, it’s every color, it’s every head shape, it’s every hair. And there’s androgyny, and there’s LGBT coming in, and it feels good. We didn’t have it enough last time and I guess that’s what the past is for — to make sure the present is what it needs to be.
The former child star, says that people often criticized her because of her weight.
I was too big to be doing an hour and a half concert. ‘I don’t know how she can dance being that big.’ I was on tour forever because it’s not about your size. It’s about what you have to say, if you can sing or dance, and performing. It’s not about your size.
