Chloe Bailey reveals what the Met Gala experience is really like
Chloe Bailey is opening up about her career, and all the cool things she’s doing this year!
The 23-year-old “Have Mercy” superstar discussed everything from her solo debut to Beyoncé’s mentorship to the 2021 Met Gala on the latest episode of the Spout podcast.
Here’s what he had to say…
On the message of “Have Mercy”: “It was definitely a response to what everyone has said about me whether good or bad, and it’s me taking back my body and just finding all of the beautiful things about it and feeling confident…it took us like less than an hour and everything we talked about was how people see me in this different light, and now they may not understand me, but it’s all right.”
On the best advice she’s gotten from Beyonce: “She’s given me a lot and even more recently as well she’s given me some great gems. You know, something that she continues to remind me of is to trust my gut and my instinct and my voice and what I love is that she’s always asking me, what do you want to do? And even before she even gives me her advice, she’d be like, what do you want? And then I’m like, well, what do you think? Because she has so much expertise and she’s been exactly where I’ve been and anything she says honestly I’ll listen to. I think anyone will, I mean it’s Queen B.”
On what being at the Met Gala is really like: “I was happy that my sister [Halle] and I were going together because regardless if we didn’t know anyone, we had each other. We actually got in there and it was the most chill event. I was thoroughly surprised. I think none of us could have a plus one. So it was everyone there just being themselves, they’re all comfortable, there are no cameras, you don’t have to worry about anything. No one’s, like, thinking about how they’re looking, we’re just having a great time and I had so much fun….you would think you’d feel so many egos and it’d be weird energy. No. It was the complete opposite and Justin Bieber performed, and he was even sitting right next to me at my table. He’s so sweet. There’s so many people I met that night who I’m fans of, and they were just really chill. Like, I think that was one of my favorite events I’ve been to.”
