Fifth Harmony has been going through so much the past couple of weeks and Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei opens up about all the cyberbullying.
These are trying times for Fifth Harmony fans. Rumors are circulating of in-fighting and feuding within Fifth Harmony, UnrealityTV reports, and a lot of publications are convinced that disbanding is imminent for the group. In fact, Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello is particularly receiving some level of hate with her solo music aspirations, as previously reported by Inquisitr.
But despite all the rumors circulating the band, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei is keeping her cool and opens up about what she has gone through, especially after she quit Twitter in August.
Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei was reported to have quit Twitter last August due to receiving racist bullying online. Billboard reports that the Fifth Harmony member quit Twitter after years of being cyberbullied on the social media platform. It has escalated so badly that in the last 48 hours before Kordei left, she claims that she has been receiving tweets and pictures to a racially discriminatory degree.
Following this bold move by the Fifth Harmony member, Kordei appears on the cover of Modeliste magazine and talked about how she’s handling all the bullying as well as the problems inside Fifth Harmony.
The past four years has been especially tough for the whole Fifth Harmony group since they rose to fame after being created on the second season of the The X Factor USA in July 2012. The beautiful Fifth Harmony member especially notes that it’s pretty tough for all of them growing up in the public eye.
“I think that a lot of the people on the outside don’t really necessarily understand all that we do and go through. It’s blood, sweat and tears. And constantly getting ridiculed by people that don’t even really know you can be tough and really take a toll on you. I think it’s just staying true to who it us you know you are.”
“They taught me to be strong. I’ve been through so much especially coming from New Orleans where there was Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I had to pick up. We had to move, make new friends, and I think my family was just strong for me as well because we had to start completely over again. And I think, despite our struggles, no matter what it is that we go through, they always kind of make a way for me to be able to succeed or do whatever it is I need to do to prosper. They’ve always been by my side any time I’m down.
“I can call home, I can call my grandma, my dad, and they’d pick up the phone and cheer me up or pray with me on the phone. And they’re really the reason I’m in this and continue to push myself. Sometimes it can get really hard, but I immediately picture them in front of me being there with me, because I know they’re there with me in spirit and I know I can keep going.”
For Fifth Harmony member Kordei, at the end of the day, it’s all about love trumping hate.
Kordei has already previously addressed the feud brewing inside Fifth Harmony, another Unreality TV article reports.
“The smartest thing you can do is recognize that making assumptions and passing judgment on others is wrong.”
