Priyanka Chopra is a woman of many talents. Her latest is hosting her very own YouTube show, If I Could Tell You Just One Thing, where she interviews extraordinary women and asks them to give her advice.
The singer-actress encourages them to share the one piece of advice that truly shaped their lives. Chopra also allows viewers an intimate insight into her own life as a newlywed, after marrying singer-actor Nick Jonas last year. “I guess getting married really made me think about what a next chapter is,” she explains.
In the half-hour long episode, she chats to Simone Biles, one of the most decorated gymnasts in recent history; actor and rising star, Awkwafina; and legendary fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg.
Chopra chats to Biles, as they walk their dogs together in sunny Los Angeles, about the pressures of being an athlete and the expectations of perfection.
“If I don’t meet their needs, I have failed, even at the Olympics,” she tells Chopra, advising her to “do something that terrifies you every day”.
“Life is only a series of ups and downs,” she tells Chopra. “When you go up, there’s nowhere to go but down. And when you’re down there’s nowhere to go but up.”
Finally, she chats with designer Diane von Furstenberg. The pair talk at Furstenberg’s home, where she opens up about getting married at a young age and balancing work with a family.
“The most important relationship in life is the one you have with yourself,” the 72-year-old designer advises Chopra.
If I Could Tell You Just One Thing is based on the book by Richard Reed and was announced back in January after she was inspired by the #10yearchallenge to take a look at how her life has changed in the past decade – and looking forward to the next one.
