Saweetie Opens Up About Struggling With Mental Health Issues Amid Busy Schedule

Lamenting about her daily routine, the femcee, who is nominated for both best new artist and best rap song for 'Best Friend' at the 2022 Grammys, says, 'It's like I live, sleep, eat and breathe music and business.'

AceShowbiz - Being booked and busy is a bless, but sometimes it gets too much for Saweeti. In a new interview with PEOPLE, the "Best Friend" raptress revealed that her hectic schedule took a toll on her.

"I can't believe I worked this hard," she said. "I try to take things day to day. Sometimes I can't look at my calendar on my weekly schedule because it'll give me anxiety."

The "My Type" hitmaker went on to say, "I feel like what I'm working for is starting to pay off, so I'm just really grateful to be acknowledged." Saweetie also shared, "I struggle with my mental health," adding that she didn't have time for herself "at all."

Lamenting about her daily routine, Saweetie said, "It's like I live, sleep, eat and breathe music and business. My team is really small, so I have to take on responsibilities that eventually somebody else will, but because my team is small, I have to help them out."

"It's just trying to find balance right now. I have no balance. Everything is just work, work, work and I don't have an outlet," she said. "I don't have a therapist. I don't hang out with any of my friends because I work so much, so it's just trying to thug it out into until the New Year."

The musician revealed that she's planning to take a vacation during Christmas and be "chilling somewhere tropical." She explained, "I'm going to take a deep breath and release some stress. Hopefully I'm able to evaluate, reflect on and see what I can do better next year, because I work a lot."

"Balance needs to happen," the femcee continued. "I feel like I'm being run down to the ground right now and my body doesn't feel good. I've had mental breakdowns and it's just really stressful, but it's nice to be acknowledged because it lets me know that my hard work isn't going unnoticed."

Saweetie, who is nominated for both best new artist and best rap song for "Best Friend" at the 2022 Grammys, said that her goal is to be a billionaire to help others. You see artists, especially women artists, venting online and it really makes my soul sad that no one is protecting our mental health," she said. "Like we're working so much and mental health is important because if we're not healthy, then we can't work and if we can't work, there's no music."

She added, "So it's definitely a domino effect and if I can get some investors before I become a billionaire, creating a wellness resort for celebrities and public figures, athletes, entertainers is like one of my primary goals."
