Chlöe Bailey is the latest celebrity to sit down with Taraji P. Henson for her Facebook Watch show, ” Peace of Mind with Taraji,” where she opened up about what it’s like to be on the receiving end of the online trolls.

Bailey has frequently been accused of being too sexual or constantly being “extra” and seeking out male attention.

“And at first, I was really getting sad about it. Then I told myself, ‘why would I let that control my thoughts and feelings when I know it’s a lie?’ So it’s like, I kind of had to not give it so much power. I’m not doing anything crazy. I’m just appreciating and loving myself and my body. And I didn’t think there was any problem with that,” she shared with Henson.

While Bailey agrees that celebrities choose to be in the spotlight, she also says there is a limit to what they sign up for.

“Yes, the life is put up on a pedestal and people can see and scope and analyze and do all of that. But that doesn’t negate the fact that we are human beings. We are not robots. We are not mannequins. And I’m sure all the people saying things wouldn’t want those things being said about them, whether it’s online or to their face. So I think that’s just one thing we always have to remember.”

She also has a few words of encouragement for young, Black women who may also battle with feeling unsure about themselves. Finding an outlet is key.

“To every young Black girl, I promise you, I have been there and it’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to be okay with not feeling great. And I think the one thing I really had to do is find that outlet for me. And that was music and God and the beach and prayer and food, but be open, it’s okay.”
