Digital Cover Shoot: Gracie Abrams for V Magazine January 2022
Gracie Abrams talks her new album:
“This Is What It Feels Like’ very much came together in fragments, kind of scattered… I wanted to immortalize this fever dream moment in my young adult life.”
Gracie opens up about whether growing up with creatives like her father affected her career trajectory:
“[Yes] I think it’s inevitable that it did. But it’s not like I was telling everyone I wanted to be a pop star when I grew up. I’ve always been a really shy person with bad anxiety, and I definitely never wanted to
sing in front of anyone.”
Gracie on using writing to help cope with the rollercoaster of love:
“Oh my god, it has helped more than anything else…except maybe actual therapy and sometimes talking to my mom. In my adult life as a writer, I’ve been able to revisit things and make sense of them and make those experiences digestible for me. To be able to help myself in that way is something that I definitely don’t take for granted.”
