We gone ride for our little cousin, Chloe Bailey!
The 22-year-old addressed her journey to self-love in an emotional video. Social media trolls attacked the young queen about her recent posts, claiming they were “too provocative.”
“For every woman out there, don’t change who you are to make society feel comfortable,” said 1/2 of the duo that makes up ChloexHalle. “I’m telling myself that’s not what I’m going to do, even when I posted the video yesterday, I posted it because I was saging and doing Palo Santa and I was like, ‘Lets’ spread positive vibes.'”

Instead, men (and sadly women too), thought it was okay to speak negatively about Chloe utilizing her personal platform to embrace all of who she is.
“I didn’t even really notice you guys were talking about my ass because I was like, ‘OK, I’m just walking in from one second, two seconds…’ And I feel like I’ve shown my ass more than I have with that… the last performance we had in December,” she continued. “Like, I was just so excited and on stage, and just being myself, so…I don’t know.”
Chloe also talked about her struggles with insecurity.
“I just felt it was important to address it, so you guys get to know who I am inside,” she said trying to hold back tears. “And it’s really hard for me to think of myself as a sexual being or being an attractive being quite frankly. So, when I see all the uproar about my posts and stuff, I’m a bit confused. Like, I really don’t understand because I’ve never seen myself in that way.”
She also explained that she is not posting for attention or validation and that the videos that she is now sharing with the world are actually old and had only been shared with her closest friends via a private Instagram account.
Recently, Chloe and her younger sister Halle, who’s reportedly away filming The Little Mermaid, jumped on IG live to share how much they’re missing each other and she even mentioned how dated the clips were then during their conversation.

“Well, you saw that because that was on my finsta,” said Chloe. “‘Cause I’ve had it on my finsta for like four months.”
