She said she made a decision to “leave this career that my agents, my managers, and everyone I know tell me I’m crazy to go.” How can you get away from it? Are you kidding, do you have any? Idea how many people do you want to have? ‘But it didn’t matter because I didn’t want it – it just wasn’t true to me. And going away was really difficult, but it was something I had to do for my sanity and general peace. And it was difficult. I didn’t know what to do with myself when I ran out of things that always dictated my identity. “

Ultimately, she found that once she embarked on other career paths such as writing, directing, and podcasting, she no longer “lived” that lie. Jennette added, “I live a life that is consistent with who I am and that feels a million times better.”
