“I’ve learned that I can do this,” she continues. “The most challenging part about being an artist is sharing my most intimate feelings with the world, including my close friends and family members.” I am bi-sexual,” she confirms. “I have been in love with both men and women.”
DEVMO says it was in college where she first fell in love with a girl. Unfortunately, the girl didn't love her back. “I needed my mother,” she remembers. “I actually sent her a text telling her about my situation. I couldn't hide that I got my heart broken by a girl. I wasn't ashamed. How can you be ashamed of love?”
DEVMO seems to have learned from her past mistakes and acknowledges them in this EP “Listen, I never imagined I'd be so flippant with girls’ hearts. I usually treat people I like well, but after being dumped on so much, I started not taking relationships seriously. I would bring girls home to fuck with their heads in the same way mine had been fucked with. I never thought I could be so evil but the damage these girls had done to me turned me into a monster.” “I have to be honest in my music. It’s the only way to inspire improvement. Our world needs it.”
Lioness is directed toward a business relationship that didn’t pan out. “This woman was promising opportunities she couldn't provide and I was super let down, fed up and frustrated.” The silver lining came with DEVMO realizing her strength and how she doesn’t need anyone to get to where she wants to be. “It helped me find my inner Lioness,” she says.
And that really sums up what this past year and her new EP, “Call It A Night”, is all about. Her lyrics and melodies encourage listeners – especially women - to take charge of their lives. DEVMO’s leading by example.
