On what took her so long to come back on the music scene
The label I was with kinda fell under an indictment and that actually put a hold on everything. It was like a black cloud that I had to kinda come out of and we had to do a lot of damage control. I wanted to distance myself from that. I did Broadway, I did some films ‚ÄďI did ‚ÄėJohn Tucker Must Die, ‚ÄėResident Evil‚Äô and I had to regroup and say, ‚ÄúOkay, we‚Äôre going to have a fresh start and I‚Äôm going to try and put my business hat on and try and look for an different angle to try and approach music because it felt like the industry was changing dramatically in those past three years.‚ÄĚ We know music, it changes, and three years is a long time.
