Sabrina Carpenter on her resilience in ‘really dark times’

Sabrina Carpenter doesn’t have to say it outright, but she does. It’s been a tough two years.

“Sometimes I think to myself, ‘Wow, I did it yesterday.’ I truly believe that the last few years of my life have been consistently like this. I was really shocked at my resilience and staying power,” she says, adding, “When things get harder and more confusing and more trivial, it’s a really beautiful moment to know that you’re capable of getting through really tough times and that you can always find the bright moments even in those really dark times. It’s something I’ve been trying to do a lot lately.”

The singer and actress doesn’t elaborate on what led to these difficult times, but it’s easy to guess. Which, to be honest, as an outsider and stranger, feels extremely invasive to admit that. It’s not normal for someone’s private life to be so public. Publicized enough that you can read between the extremely vague lines they present in an interview. It’s not normal to know these details so well that you can probably present them in a jiffy, since you got to know them by learning the lines of songs you love so much, they filled half of the top 10 slots Wrapped up in your Spotify. I’m speaking, of course, of the speculation that she’s the subject of many Olivia Rodrigo songs.

But there’s no guilt or anger in Carpenter’s voice as she tiptoes around and talks about the tougher times she’s been through. The only thing that is really recognizable is how mature and introspective their current perspective is.

Anytime I was in a situation that was very low, there was always an after,” she said. “I’m trying to remember it. But it is difficult.”

It is clear that she is now in this “after” phase. With new music and a possible tour (which she hasn’t confirmed, but didn’t come either not confirm) in the works, Carpenter reveals a side of her that many people—including myself—may not have known was there. This site I’m speaking of is a singer with a very intentionally capitalized S. The star is as petite as it gets, but mine has her whistles. And although she is young, she has soul.

At a kickoff event for Samsung’s new Galaxy Creator Collective, a network of creators from different industries who learn from each other, Carpenter performed in front of an audience for the first time in a couple of years, with only a guitarist by her side. Whether it was the vocal “Fast Times” or the chatty “Skinny Dipping,” she demonstrated her ability not only to hit higher, more powerful notes, but to disrupt breathwork as the pro she truly is. She created an atmosphere that was equal parts intimate and impressive. After all, it’s not every day that you’re just a few feet away from someone with such talent. It’s hard not to be aware of it, even when she’s making the same kind of sarcastic remarks and self-deprecating jokes that your best friends make at brunch over the weekend.

That kind of humor makes sense considering Sabrina is the youngest sister of four — any younger sister knows that probably more than a few years of their lives were the butt of the joke. But along with her level-headedness, her family is one of the reasons she’s so in touch with herself and her strength, she says.

“WIn order for my older sisters to be able to come back from things that weren’t easy for them, and especially my mother, I see the way I am now and I feel like a lot of it has to do with my childhood views and perceptions of things ‘ Sabrina explained. Watching women in music and cinema also helps, she added. Especially Rihanna there oceans 8 “Every time I feel down and watch this movie, I feel good afterwards.”

However, when that movie isn’t on deck, she has other options for getting out of her own head.

I get the most scared when I zoom in and focus on so many little different things and the second I say ‘wait pause’ it’s a lot easier to realize that some things aren’t that great, but some things are better,” said Sabrina. “Life is too short to let outside forces in and allow them to affect your life and journey. The more you listen to the opinions of others, the more you make your decisions based on them, you will live with those decisions in the future, not with them. If it’s not the things you want and the choices you want to make, you’re going to get yourself into trouble.”

Suffice it to say, she made it through moments that would have driven most of us into isolation or silence. But lately, Sabrina has been focusing on what makes her happy — making music, listening to her Marvin Gaye record, and spending time with the people she loves. She averages nearly 11 million monthly Spotify listeners, has 27 million Instagram followers, stars and produces Netflix’s version Alice in Wonderland and releases new music.

It seems like her voice is stronger than ever.

“I believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Always,” she said. “It’s just something I’ve seen over and over again.” Sabrina Carpenter on her resilience in ‘really dark times’
