In Grapefruit, Tove Lo sings about a diet she went on to lose weight for a movie role. The experience was emotionally difficult because it brought back memories of her past eating disorder.
Tove Lo felt insecure and asked herself repeatedly, ‘Can I diet without reverting to my old habits?’ But ultimately, she succeeded. To her, it proved that she was healed.
The lyrics are just so impressive here. It’s not easy to bring up topics like eating disorders, but Tove Lo does it with strength and bravery. She’s hoping that Grapefruit will inspire others to follow her lead. So far, the reaction to the song has been extremely positive, and Tove Lo is receiving widespread praise for being so honest.
