She released this statement on twitter:
i'm making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music. i'm trying to figure out who i am... w/out a mike, paper or pen. i promised myself when it wasn't fun anymore i wouldn't do it. and here i am. i'm not saying i wont ever sing again in my life becuz i don’t believe that. but in this moment... rt now... i got some things to figure out. i love u all and appreciate u soooooo much. u have no idea how much u've inspired me and fed my ego. but the truth is that i have to believe in me whether you all do or not. and thats what i'm lookin for. that belief in myself. me. I. i love us. thanks for being here for me and riding with me on this journey. let us continue.
If true this is indeed sad news to music lovers and buyers. She's one of the most talented artists of current. Her talent is one of the reason why I started this blog. She was the first artist that I featured in November of 2007. At that time she was just recently signed with J Records and her only outlet for her music was myspace.
