Destiny’s Child Singer Michelle Williams Reveals She Suffered From Depression | Music News
The 37 years old R&B singer Michelle Williams has revealed on CBS chat show The Talk, that since the ages of 13 up until her 20s, she has suffered from depression. She also totally opened up during the show telling audiences that she also thought to commit suicide.
During those years, the singer was a member of female R&B group Destiny’s Child. The band which was composed by Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are famous for their hits “Say My Name“, “Survivor“, “Bootylicious” and more. They had a lot of success, and indeed were also rewarded with a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Despite this success, Michelle in her interview has explained that she couldn’t understand why she was so depressed. She has revealed that she tried to speak with her manager, Beyonce’s dad Mathew Knowles, but he didn’t understand her.
“When I disclosed it to our manager at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You’re about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?’ So I was like, ‘Oh, maybe I’m just tired’“.
She added that from that moment, things were going worse and her depression got “to the point where I was suicidal. I was at that place where it got so dark and heavy because sometimes you feel like, ‘I’m the provider, I take care of people. I’m not supposed to be feeling this way. What do I do?’ And I wanted out“.
The singer has now overcome this bad period of her life, but she wants to encourage people to speak out about this problem and ask for help. After the show, she tweeted “Thank you @TheTalkCBS for being a safe place to talk about #depression #mentalhealthawareness!! Don’t be afraid to reach out for help!”
