Mz Bratt On Being Racially Abused As A Child: “I’Ve Got A Really Thick Skin Now...”
Mz Bratt recently had a short but candid interview with Amaru Don TV, opening up about being racially abused as a child in her local area. Mz Bratt said: "Where I grew up, it was a predominantly white area. It was the area of the NF, the National Front, and I used to get called 'p**i' and all of these awful names. I used to get beaten up and stuff..."
However, the artist went on to say that she is glad for all of the bad that happened to her, as it has made her a strong person: "I wouldn’t change it for the world! I’m glad those things happened, because it made me a tougher person and I’ve got really thick skin now. If someone wants to ever call me a p**i now, I wouldn’t be like, 'What did you say?' I’d just be like, 'Aight cool. You’re just simple-minded.'"
The MC also touched on her relationship status at the moment, revealing that she is currently single and that's the way she likes it: "I was with someone for four years, on-and-off, and we balanced the relationship really well. I like the person [I’m with] to be a part of my music life because it’s who I am. But now that relationship is over, I am fully focused on my music. I don’t think I’m in a place where I should be in a relationship or linking boys."
