Bella Thorne is everywhere.
She’s working hard at her day job as a successful actress. Thorne is in production for Girl, Southland, Exo and The Friendship Game. Her next 2019 release is a TV series, called Paradise City, followed by the film release of Leave Not One Alive.
But she’s doing much more than just acting. She recently directed a film, for Pornhub, called Him and Her. She’s also working on a marijuana line, with Glasshouse, called Forbidden Flower and developing a skincare line and an adult toy line.
Somehow, in the midst of all of this, she managed to write a book. The Life Of A Wanna Be Mogul: Mental Disarray is made up of deeply personal poems, focusing on: Depression, drugs, relationships, family dynamics and abuse.
This book is actually the second version of The Life Of A Wanna Be Mogul: Mental Disarray. The first one was left on a plane. Thorne laughed, “I left it on a Delta flight. I had to start all over again.”
Thorne looked deep within herself and covered a range of topics, including her romantic relationships. Thorne, who describes herself as pansexual, commented on her breakup with musician Mod Sun. She said, “Yeah, we broke up over something really silly. But I always believe that things happen for a reason. But I’m not sure what that one was.”
After publicly breaking up with her girlfriend, Tana Mongeau, the two are now friends. She said,“I love T. She’s got those eyes man. Every time she comes at me with those eyes, I’m putty.”
But Thorne gets much deeper than her relationships. In the poem “Love and Hate,” she talks about the self-doubt that has plagued her throughout her life. Thorne said, “Self-doubt is a really hard one. You need to rework the brain. I’m insecure, so my whole life I haven’t felt beautiful. So, when I look in a mirror, I don’t feel beautiful because that’s all I’ve ever heard. So, I’ve retrained myself to look in the mirror and say, ‘You are beautiful. You’re gorgeous. Stop it.’”
Depression is something else that she’s struggled with. Her poem “Depression” has gotten the most positive feedback and seems to resonate with readers. She got choked up when she talked about it. Thorne said, “It’s so beautiful that they felt not so lonely and they felt understood. That’s the reason that I wrote it.”
Thorne has dealt with a lot in her 21 years: The death of her father, growing up in the spotlight, mental health issues, and much more. Her writing shows that she’s willing to face her demons and, in turn, help others to deal with theirs.
The Life Of A Wanna Be Mogul:Mental Disarray is available wherever books are sold.
