Charli XCX Takes a Step Back from Social Media After ‘Grappling’ With Mental Health

Charli XCX says she needs to step back from social media. In a personal statement on Twitter, she told fans about her struggle with mental health issues. She mentioned the criticism surrounding the rollout of her forthcoming album, Crash.

She said, “I’ve been grappling quite a lot with my mental health the past few months and obviously it makes negativity and criticism harder to handle when I come across it.”

When she wants to post something, she’ll have someone monitor her social media and will be drafting tweets from afar. She wrote: “because, I can’t really handle it here right now.”


Following her statement, she dropped the official music video for her and Rina Sawayama’s “Beg For You.”
