Amara La Negra Speaks About Her Bout With Homelessness

Amara La Negra At Airport

AMARA LA NEGRA: I was homeless at some point in my life, and a lot of people don’t know that.

HOLLYWOOD UNLOCKED: Not sleeping on the street?

AMARA LA NEGRA: Well, sleeping in my car for 2 months outside of McDonalds… And I would go there because it’s 24 hours; and wash up with wipies and stuff, and leave out of the car looking fabulous, and you would never know that I’m struggling; I’m so hungry. You would never know.

HOLLYWOOD UNLOCKED: It takes a lot of courage to admit that though…

AMARA LA NEGRA: You know what? I do it too because I want to be real. I want to be honest about it.

My life hasn’t always been perfect. I don’t do it because I want anybody to feel pity for me. It’s my truth, and all these things build the character and the woman I am today.
