Mandy Moore posed seductively for the May issue of Details, which hits newsstands April 21. She's promoting her new album, Amanda Leigh and it is expected to showcase a much edgier Mandy than what we've seen before. The singer opened up in the interview about her previous musical experiences and her new husband Ryan Adams. Here are some highlights:
- On her new album Amanda Leigh: "The music is all a reflection of me now, not somebody else's choices. If people don't like the music, then they don't like me—and that's quite all right."
- On her pop music past, which she now calls "crappy": "I was just told to show up and what to sing. . . . That was late-nineties pop music for you. I found myself in the company of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, who had really quality music, much more so than mine was. I'm sure there are people scratching their heads, going 'Wow, how is she still around?'"
- On her husband Ryan: "When it comes to the possibility and potential to collaborate, or to be able to run decisions or ideas by someone . . . it's nice to have that. I feel very lucky, you know?"
Sounds like Mandy is ready to dive into a new music career with the help of her husband, and hopefully she'll be happier with the outcome this time around.
