Madison Beer’s New Memoir ‘The Half of It’ Unlocks Her Life’s Experiences — All Unfiltered
The pages of Madison Beer’s new memoir trap her nude photo leak experience. Recall that at 13 she became a force to reckon with. Beer had performed Etta James’ “At Last,” which influenced her music deal with music exec Scooter Braun.
Rising to fame came with its fair share of complexities, including opening her up to criticism online. But at age 15, she faced the most traumatizing scenario. She was tormented by a private clip she sent to a childhood crush. Someone Madison Beer had confided in betrayed her and leaked a nude photo. And expectedly, many naysayers were not having any of it. To top it all, she was blackmailed and paid through her nose to clear the explicit content online.
Six years after the experience, the singer regained her strength to share what went on in her mind with Yahoo Entertainment during the trying times. Beer felt it was time to share her truth She said:
“I definitely feel like I’m reclaiming my story, and that’s the mindset I had going into it, but it is still intimidating and scary.”
In the new memoir, Madison Beer scripted some intimate information concerning her trauma with the leak and early rise to fame. It also captures her suicidal thoughts, sexual assault, and mental health. But she is willing to put on another armor of boldness to share what she went through.
Beer Believes Opening Up Has Helped in Many Ways
Before writing ‘The Half of It,’ Beer had no problem expressing her past struggles with mental health. This made her realize that there is love in sharing. She has connected with people.
“It’s given me a greater purpose in life — [one] that I never really knew was one of my purposes,” she mused.
Meanwhile, she feels sad that young women in Hollywood still have to go through similar experiences as regards fame. In her book, Beer talked about not having a normal childhood after fame. In all sincerity, she does not believe it would have been any different even if she was 24.
