Jelly Roll Believes In ‘God And Therapy’
Jelly Roll talked about the importance of therapy in a new interview on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Jelly described himself as an “old-school Southern man.” He noted that his relationship with God and faith are also key parts of his evolution.
Jelly added that he believes in “God and therapy.” He said he is “extremely open-minded” in his “old age.” Jelly offered, “I quit searching to be happy, and I started searching to be useful.” That’s when everything changed for him, and he strives to “be a man of service” and to help people.
In the same interview, Jelly also talked about his close family. He said, “I want to anchor myself in family. I think it’s the root of everything we do. We’re a little tribe, and they’re my best friends.” He said his “favorite human on Earth” is his wife, adding how much he loves his daughter and even the family dogs.
At one point, he was asked about recently meeting Dolly Parton, and he said, “It was like meeting Jay Z. It was that big.” He said that meeting the country icon “couldn’t have gotten any bigger” for him, and she is who he “inspires to be.”
Jelly took fan questions on his Insta Stories not long ago and touched on several subjects, including his mental health, after wrapping his headlining “Backroad Baptism Tour” and why he is going without his phone through the end of the year.
When a fan asked about his mental health, Jelly replied, “This is probably too honest, but exhausted and unstable. Definitely when I get through the holidays, and I’ve got a lot of stuff to do between now and the holidays, but when I get through the holidays, I really need to take some personal time.”
