Ally Brooke is opening up about her life in her upcoming memoir Finding Harmony, and reveals in the book that at 27 years old, she is still a virgin.
“I put that in my book, and I opened up about that. I was brave to share that,” she told Hollywood Raw of her decision to wait until marriage. “I was really happy to be able to share that with my fans and readers, and show them the choice that I made, and have them receive it however they want to receive it. Letting my true heart shine was the goal of this book.”
As far as her dating life, the former Fifth Harmony star shared that “everybody has respected it, which is awesome.”
“I have had those moments where people would make fun of me or question me, like ‘Yeah right,’ but I just have to hold that in my heart and know my truth and kind of just let that be that,” she continued. “It’s awesome feeling that respect. I’ve never felt any pressure.”
Ally did, however, discuss some inappropriate remarks from music executives earlier in her career. “This music executive was like come meet with me I can help you. Then when I went, he gave me a thong and said, ‘You’d look really good in this.’ I was completely humiliated, shocked, and disgusted,” she explained. “I didn’t feel like I had any power to do anything about it, because sadly at that time people heard about these things but really didn’t do much. People weren’t being held accountable for their actions. So I just felt so helpless and alone. Just a searing humiliation and even afraid. At the time what could I do? I was just a small girl in a group and all these people had the power.”
Finding Harmony is out Oct. 13.
