'Why Blend In?': Singer Bella Thorne Admits 'Showing Off My Imperfections Gave Me The Confidence I Have Now'
Singer Bella Thorne is the first to admit she isn’t perfect, however, the Hollywood star, 23, doesn’t think she is flawed. In fact, it’s quite the opposite!
“Being real and showing off my imperfections gave me the confidence I have now,” the Disney alum exclusively tells OK!. “I didn't have to sit there and look at an edited photo of myself and be like, ‘Oh, this is what you could look like.’ Rather, posting an unedited photo of me, I can see myself for all my natural beauty and be thankful for it.”
The red-headed beauty always wants to be open and honest with her followers about the industry's beauty standards. “I always tell my fans that their imperfections make them unique and set them apart,” she reveals. “Why blend in when you were born to stand out, you know?”

The Midnight Sun star insists her social media followers get a very real glimpse at what goes on behind closed doors. “They get to see the real Bella Thorne, they get to see my ups and downs in life and are there for every step of my journey,” she reveals about her loyal audience. “My favorite part of interacting with my fans is seeing their growth in finding their true selves. They are more than fans to me; they are friends.”
These days, Thorne is focusing on her music; the starlet just released her latest single called “Shake It” and even celebrated “the crazy stream numbers” for her new music video.
“My inspiration for the song is to help people have some fun and let loose,” she explains. “2020 was a challenging year, and I want everyone who hears this song just to let that go for the moment and dance.”
Thorne even directed the fun and feisty video, which also stars Abella Danger, and couldn’t help but gush over the opportunity.
“I am very passionate about directing and producing my music videos. It's a sense of accomplishment when I write the songs, produce the songs, and direct the music videos knowing I was there every step of the way during the creative process,” she notes. “Directing is something I have become more passionate about and plan on pursuing more in the future.”

She adds, "The music video was a lot of fun to make because I got to be so creative. For this music video though, I really wasn't tapping into a certain character. Everything you are seeing is me, and I was just freely expressing myself and my sexuality."
So, will Thorne be releasing new tunes in the near future? "Yes, I have more music coming out soon!" she exclaims.
