Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson was recently featured on Teen Vogue on August 25 before her 16th birthday on August 28. It had a glamorous photoshoot along with a personal interview where Honey Boo Boo got candid about the people in her life that also include June “Mama June” Shannon.
During the conversation, Thompson said that her mother’s struggle with substance abuse had a very hard impact on her family. She said,
“It’s something I’d wish on nobody, for real. When my mama got real bad with her [drug use], I didn’t know where I was going to end up. I’m proud of myself for how far I’ve come.”
Thompson added that her fans expect her to be a little Honey Boo Boo but she has changed a lot over the years. She said that just because she is from the south, people expect her to be all country bumpkin riding on four-wheelers.
She even mentioned that she does not like the way the people of her age are critical of body types that are outside of what is seen as acceptable. She feels that today’s generation is making it worse by talking about body positivity until they see a body they don’t like.
