Jesy Nelson is opening up about filming her new “Boyz” music video!
The 30-year-old singer launched her debut solo single and the accompanying video on Friday (October 8).
Jesy recently dished on the differences in body confidence she had while filming her new video.
See what she said inside…
“I look back and I think how crazy it got. I’d starve myself for days and I’d wear these corsets every single day, pulled so tight I could barely breathe. I used to wear corsets every single day to make my waist smaller, which is mental but I so badly just wanted to look like Jade, Leigh and Perrie,” she told Glamour magazine.
“I couldn’t breathe half the time I was working and then my body would be covered in bruises from the corsets. But that’s how it was,” Jesy continued. “My first nightmare moment was our very first shoot when the stylist had all my clothes in a size 8 and I’m a 12. They didn’t fit. I felt awful, I felt fat and that was how I always felt.”
But for her new solo music video, she wore a crop top and was comfortable with it.
“A crop top… Me!” Jesy said. “I was the one covered up as much as possible. When I danced in that crop top I saw my belly rolls in the mirror and it didn’t bother me, in Little Mix if I’d seen any belly rolls I’d have been crying and screaming for a big T-shirt. So I was laughing to myself because I didn’t care. It sounds like a little thing but that was a big moment for me.”
“I feel in control of my life, I don’t have that constant anxiety, the feeling I might be letting someone down or voicing an opinion that won’t fit with the others. It’s so completely liberating and that has been massive for my state of mind,” Jesy shared about how she’s doing with body positivity and her mental health.
Jesy is pictured here visiting the Kiss FM studios in London on Thursday (October 7) to promote her new single. She’s also pictured wearing Fendi going out later that night.
