Sabrina Carpenter has delivered a touching monologue after bagging the Variety Hitmakers Rising Artist Award on Saturday.
Sabrina released plenty of hit tracks in the last few months including Nonsense and Fruitcake.
While receiving the award, the songstress reflected on her childhood and used the popular “Tortoise” metaphor.
She began with, “Something that my mom always said to me as a little girl that really annoyed me was that I am the tortoise, and if you guys know the tortoise and the hare thing, that pissed me off a lot because, you know, throughout my life, [I was] being told, ‘Sabrina, you’re the tortoise, just chill,’ like ‘it’s okay, you’re the tortoise, just slow down, it’s going to be okay,'”
Sabrina added, “In moments of frustration and confusion it can feel like a letdown, but it turns out it’s actually a very good thing. And I’ve really loved getting to know the mindset of a slow rise. .Knowing that I have a lot to look forward to and no matter how much I experience and how much I have under my belt, I’ll always have something to learn. That’s kind of where I’m at right now, I’m just learning.”
The Work It star noted that she is “very grateful” for whatever she has been through, it helped her reach her true potential.
Sabrina received the award by singer-songwriter Julia Michaels.
Julia praised her pal, “I’ve had the honor of getting to know and write songs with this incredible artist over the last few years. I’m absolutely in awe of her lyricism and her incredible voice and her extremely quick-witted sense of humor. It’s top-notch. And her completely unmatched work ethic.”
She concluded, “She’s one of the most intelligent women that I know and I love her ability to turn anything good and bad into a song.”
