Seven months after the event, Majura was asked what she thought of the situation during a recent interview for IbagensCast.
She said: “I am tired. I’m very, very tired because there are a lot of opinions and a lot of judgments… The situation is such that no matter what I post, people have opinions about it. And that seems ridiculous to me, because if I said honestly how I feel – I’m hurt, it’s hard, of course I don’t feel well – people would say, ‘Oh, you’re playing the victim. So I said, ‘Actually, I’m fine. I’m doing well’. And then, of course, people said, ‘She didn’t care about the band.
Explaining why she walked away from social media after the split, she added: “I got to a point where I was like, ‘You know what? I could talk about the last blueberry yogurt I ate, and you would always find a way to connect it to what happened’.”
