I’ve never seen this pic of her before. It’s beautiful; the dress, the setting, everything. She looks like a mermaid.

She’s also come forward about having bipolar, which is so brave. She struggled quietly for decades with it, suffering in an abusive marriage during the height of her career in the 90s, having a breakdown in 2001 from all the pressure her fame caused her, and she hadn’t found peace and recovery until now. In 2018. After all those years of pain.

Mental illness doesn’t care who you are, or what you’ve accomplished. It’ll hit you hard anyway. It’s how you live with it that shows what you’re really made of.
