Tigger wanted to know about her upcoming project that was slated for release this week and Saweetie revealed that there is a bit of a delay. "Yes, PBM was supposed to come out this month, but I was really living with it," she said. "And one of my goals is for people to really feel something with every song, so I had to go back and reconstruct some songs. Just know that I'm a perfectionist and it's on the way."
Elsewhere, Saweetie talked about fame and having her every move watched by the public. "The eyeballs, being under a microscope," she said. "Every little thing that you do, someone's report, it can be taken out of context, even Big Tig was saying earlier, Cancel Culture. So, I just feel like, we work so hard to reap the benefits but then, at least for me, I just feel like I'm always being watched and I have to be hyper-aware, and sometimes I feel like I can't even enjoy some of my moments because there's just so much opinions."
