Canadian singer, Nelly Furtado reveals she has ADHD


Nelly Furtado has opened up about her struggles with ADHD amid a comeback to recording and performing music.

The Canadian pop star, 44, said she was only diagnosed 18 months ago. And staying busy with music and dance has helped her along the way.

‘I believe I’ve had it my whole life, but playing instruments six days a week as a kid kept me in check,’ Furtado said during a cover-shoot interview with Fault Magazine, her first photo shoot in six years.

More recently, the Grammy winner said she’s turned to dance and choreography at a studio ‘as as a natural way of dealing with my ADHD’.

‘I find the discipline really helps my brain,’ she added.

The ‘I’m Like a Bird’ performer said she was diagnosed with inattentive attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, which is when a person has a hard time paying attention to small details, has trouble organizing tasks and has difficulty holding attention during conversation or other activities.

‘I think it was probably a blessing that they didn’t know until now,’ Furtado said.

‘Because I think I’m mature enough now to not be overly dramatic about it and just deal with it and find solutions rather than dwell on the emotional side of it.’

Furtado’s announcement came amid a return to music after a six-year break.
