Her tweet was supported by both fellow artists and fans. Kaskade showed his support for the Australian music producer’s decision by retweeting her message along with some positive and encouraging words of his own. He commended her for taking care of herself and reassuring her that her fans are inspired by her active self-are and will still be there for her.
Hey – love that you’re taking care of yourself. Get back to zero so you can turn it all the way up to eleven for the fans later on. They’ll still be there, many of them inspired by your active self-care. Keep doing that. ?? https://t.co/FqFH4AodK7
