Lauren Jauregui on cathartic nature of writing her own music

Lauren Jauregui has opened up about the cathartic nature of writing her own music for her debut solo album.

The massively popular 22-year-old singer-songwriter said: "It has been such an incredibly freeing process.

"I’ve really let myself be guided by not having any inhibition about what I was gonna say or how it was gonna come out.

"And it’s really therapeutic, if nothing else, to be able to dive into my mind."

The Fifth Harmony star spoke about how she does find the thought of releasing such personal material daunting but that she has to embrace it as part of her growth. She told the L.A. Times recently:

“The prospect of putting it out into the world and people debating whether it’s a flop or not is, truthfully, terrifying — crippling even.

"But I stop and remind myself that I’m talented. I can write. I can sing. This is my gift."

Jauregui added: "I can either listen to what everybody else says and compare myself to their standards, or I can just uplift my own standards and continue to better myself for myself.”
