5.) Storm received some sound advice from Oprah. “She did give advice to me. I have a fear that I’m gonna be really tall, so we had a conversation about life, in general, and that you can’t put energy into trying to resist something in life,” Storm told Collider in an interview. “You have to put that energy into something else ‘cause God has planned for you what he’s planned for you, and you can’t change that. You’re just wasting energy, trying to resist something. That was really good advice.”
