Simi recently stopped by Cool FM’s studios to talk about herself, music, transitioning from parenthood, and how she handles unfavourable press and rumours.
When asked how she handles rumours and corrects inaccurate statements about herself, the beautiful singer explained that she doesn’t want to be perceived as someone who just goes with the flow or does what everyone else does, so she lets it go at a certain point.
Here’s what she said;
“If it’s about correcting things, I just feel like the public believes whatever makes them happiest. So regardless of what you say – for example if someone said
“Simi is a boy” and I go “No I’m a girl”, they’ll be like “what would you say before?” – so they’re just going to always respond. At the end of the day, they just want to be right.
They don’t care that you’re right or that you know better so I really do not care about correcting any notions.
Most of the times, the things I’m most vocal about don’t have to do with me. It’s not like I’m experiencing some kind of personal abuse or whatever.
It’s just if I see people around me, people who don’t have the same platform and I feel like it’s important to speak up.
People are gonna talk anyway and I don’t ever wanna be seen as someone that just went with the flow of the river or with what everyone else is doing. I’m not a pretentious person and I don’t know how to be.”
