They didn’t cease asking me, and I simply froze and I — I don’t even bear in mind,” stated the singer, who first revealed the sexual assault in 2014.
“First, I felt full-on pain, then I went numb. I was sick for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks after, and I realized that it was the same pain that I felt when the person who raped me dropped me off, pregnant, on a corner,” she added.
