Living in the public eye has its advantages and disadvantages. Just ask LeToya Luckett-Walker, Toya Wright and Monica Brown. In this T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle highlight, the ladies get real about learning to deal with haters on the Internet and navigating a digital world.
Monica explains that she was super young when she first started singing and didn’t have to deal with the Internet during her come up. She says “I grew up in an era that was actually really dope. We were able to create, make mistakes, live, learn, do whatever we needed to do without a whole lot of criticism and judgement. The internet is an amazing tool, but if you let it use you instead of using it, it’ll wear you out.”
LeToya laments that haters on the Internet don’t know that, behind their Instagram pages, these ladies are real people with real feelings. “They’re always going to have something to say about somebody that they don’t know and can’t touch.”
It can’t be easy, but the ladies agree that it’s important to just “blur all of it out and just do you” as well as surrounding yourself with ladies who understand the struggle!
These ladies can always lean on each other when times get rough. Tune in to T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle on Mondays at 9/8c to see these ladies in action.
