She also doesn’t let her fame get to her head and makes sure that everyone understands she is a human first and a singer second.

People around the world idolize her words because she's never afraid to speak the truth. She has gone through so much in her life, such as dealing with her husband cheating on her and a miscarriage, that people can’t help but not respect her and relate to her. Anything she says has come from experience and has had the public’s best interest in mind.
