Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke: 'I hated my image'

Published 11/04/2016

Fifth Harmony singer Ally Brooke loves how confident she is now, after suffering from insecurity when she was younger.

Fifth Harmony’s Ally Brooke used to suffer badly with image insecurity.

The singer, who found fame with her bandmates on The X Factor USA, may be riding high in the confidence stakes now, but that wasn’t always the case. Because of her previous self-doubt, 22-year-old Ally now relishes being on stage in sexy costumes, strutting her stuff with Fifth Harmony.

“I used to be very insecure,” she confided to Britain’s Metro newspaper. “It was awful. I used to ridicule myself for my image and personal things I didn’t like about myself. It means more to me than anyone will ever know that I’m confident and love myself now because I went through so much.”

Ally and her Fifth Harmony bandmates; Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Camila Cabello, and Lauren Jauregui, are currently enjoying chart domination with track Work From Home, which has reached the number two spot in the UK singles charts and hit number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Lauren, 19, opened up about the online abuse people face today, admitting it can be tiring to battle with Twitter trolls.

“You have a bunch of people on a regular basis (ready) to tear you down, telling you all the things you already feel insecure about in a very hurtful way,” she sighed.

Lauren also doesn’t think people should bad mouth others if they choose to have surgery, explaining that going under the knife is a way for some women to feel good about themselves.

“When you see all these women getting s**t done to them, it’s not because they’re trying to be fake, it’s trying to feel beautiful again” she said.
