Lenka Is A Much-Needed Positive Pop Role Model
Australian actress and pop darlinwg Lenka has solidified herself as a household name ‘down under’ and has found fans all over the world since the release of her debut self-titled record in 2008. Seven years later and Lenka’s life has changed in extraordinary ways; meeting her husband, having a child and transforming into an even more positive self. So aptly titled, The Bright Side is Lenka’s catchy celebration of optimism.
Lenka is an all-around rockstar: balancing the life as a gorgeous pop star, actress and devoted mother to a young boy. Over the years Lenka’s music has constantly evolved and her positivity a reflection of the loves in her life. “Having a kid was a profound, biological happiness-provider for me,” Lenka said. While motherhood can be a challenge, as her son gets older Lenka finds herself sitting back and taking life as it comes. “I have this “who cares” attitude now, and that is really freeing,” she said.
“It’s about finding joy and keeping it and having an open, optimistic frame of mind.”
With her own personal happiness at an all time high, spreading love and kindness to others in any way she can is an important goal. “Even just energetically putting that out there, and maybe encouraging people online around the world to do the same,” Lenka said, “It’s a small thing, but I think it helps in the long run.” This includes supporting MicroLoan Foundations that help women in developing nations get on their feet, in addition to countless other causes like environmental missions that aim to save her home country’s Great Barrier Reef. And if sharing kindness through her music can help the world at all, then that’s a powerful step too.
