The four members have solidified themselves as bonafide “it girls,” and BLACKPINK’s Jennie shares that she often feels like she navigates her life in the spotlight as two different people.

Jennie on stage is charismatic and powerful, but off stage I’m just a normal, shy girl.

Jennie shared a thoughtful answer when asked about her global fame and how she lives up to the hype of being an icon.

For Jennie, the key is forging her own path while maintaining her own views and perspectives instead of falling into an image expected of her as a public figure.

[An icon is] someone who clearly has their own opinions and thoughts… to be called an icon you need to have the ability to question people with your own views and perspectives, rather than just giving the answer that everyone accepts or the story that everyone likes.

After describing how she handles the fame, Jennie shared advice for those who want to follow in her footsteps and become an artist themselves.

If you believe in yourself more than anyone else and work hard, you will definitely make things happen one way or another… A positive mindset is key, and filling your mind with positive thoughts can help you stay motivated. If you focus on the positive and look for solutions, you’ll find tough situations easier to overcome.
