Solana Imani Rowe, better known by her stage name SZA, has spoken out about the bullying she experienced during her time in high school.

In an interview with PEOPLE, the musician revealed that she was often targeted for being "awkward" and struggled to gain the acceptance of her peers.

SZA described feeling constantly attacked and seeking approval from others, saying, "I'll never have the approval of anyone in life, this must be my defining factor, this must be the bottom line."

Despite these challenges, SZA refused to let her negative high school experiences define her. In fact, she believes that they ultimately shaped who she is today.

"I realized that all the things that made me feel so lame were actually what made me into who I am," she said.

SZA also revealed that she did not attend her prom because she had no friends, a fact that she now finds "weird" given that she now requires a bodyguard to attend parties due to her fame.

SZA's struggles in high school motivated her to work even harder and not let those experiences hold her back.

Today, she is a successful musician with a devoted fan base and a successful career. Despite her fame, SZA remains humble and grateful for the experiences that have shaped her.
