Zara Larsson’s boyfriend wants her to stop writing about her ex.
The 20-year-old singer wrote her latest single ‘Ruin My Life’ about returning to a toxic relationship, and while her current partner Brian Whittaker is jealous that the beauty isn’t writing songs about him, Zara finds it more difficult to write love songs.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, she said: “Brian was, like ‘Why aren’t you writing songs about me ‘.
“But I think I’ve just got to tell my story and it’s also really tricky to write super good, fun, love songs that aren’t cheesy.”
Although the ‘Lush Life’ hitmaker finds it easier to express herself through her music, she doesn’t want her new single to encourage bad relationship as she fears that young women may get the wrong message from her lyrics.
In an interview with Pop Justice, she said: “I can’t lie: I’ve been there when you’re coming out of a bad relationship and you just know this person is really bad for you, but you can’t help wanting to go back.
“You’re like: I know he’ll ruin my life, he’ll break my heart and I won’t be able to eat or sleep for three months, but I WANT IT NOW.
“I think everyone’s been there. Or after two drinks you can’t stop yourself sending the texts. But… I also argue against myself when it comes to songs. I’m very careful with things I say.
“And I don’t want people – young girls and women – to listen to the song and… Like, I don’t want to be a girl who promotes bad relationships. ‘Just go back to him, it’ll be fine’. I don’t want to do that. But I do also want to be an artist who can express something I’m feeling or that I’ve been through.”
