Today on q, with Tom Power:

  • Vivek Shraya discusses the challenges she faces both personally and as an artist when it comes to adapting to the new normal and just "showing up" every day.

  • Lizzo opens up about turning to therapy for a deeper understanding of her mental health when music failed to make her happy.
