Bridget Kelly keeps it real in the first episode of her “Road to Independence” docu-series, premiering on Rap-Up.com. After teasing with a trailer earlier this month, the former Roc Nation songstress reflects on the past as she gears up for the release of her debut All or Nothing.
Bridget, who is now independent, toured with Jay Z on his “Blueprint 3” tour in 2009-2010.
“Being on the road with Jay was one of the most exciting points of my life, my entire life,” she said. “When those kinds of things happen prematurely before you really have a chance to know just how monumental they are, sometimes you lose yourself in it.”
But she was able to get through trying times with help from her team and mother. “Just to have them by my side is really what kept me afloat.”
She got emotional while describing the experience. “I really had no idea what to expect from the next couple years or even the next phase,” she said. “I didn’t know what life was going to hand to me. I look back at how much of myself I gave to that process and how little in the grand scheme of things it seemed to give back to me.”
Watch Bridget bare her soul and stay tuned for Episode 2 to see her take on her next challenge, the Nike Marathon.
