Brandy spent lots of time last year beefing with record labels and former frenemies. Now, the 90's R&B icon is getting honest on Instagram with a hopeful post that discusses her history of depression.

"I've been lost, deep in bondage, suicidal, and didn't know how to call on the Most High because I didn't believe I had the right words to be heard," she wrote. "I'm here now more certain than I have ever been and I have arrived at a true understanding of my purpose, worth, and an unconditional love and compassion for myself."

Read her message in full below:


No shade from us here: we love seeing celebrities open up with stories about how they persevered through mental illness, and we're glad to see she's doing OK now.

Meanwhile, she's looking pretty adorable posing for pictures with her daughter:

Me, my seed, and I ♥ @syraiiman
