Photo and Quotes from Mandy Moore in Details Magazine May 2009

Mandy Feels Very Lucky and Is Ready For Something New

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.

She looks beautiful. I'm glad she kept it classy, despite posing for a men's magazine.

I like Britney Spears and I've always enjoyed her music, but I don't know that I'd use the word "quality" to describe it.

I have always liked Mandy Moore. Her last album Wild Hope was honestly very good if you like that Singer/Songwriter vibe. I will more than likely pick up this new album too.. She looks gorgeous here!

i agree...not so great music (some Wild Hope stuff is decent!), TERRIBLE movies (except Saved)..but for some reason, i love her and think she's a great role model. i did like her in Entourage though!

well that's not really good to say about the start of your career now is it mandy? i don't know - i feel like she was even younger than all those girls and was doing her thing, and at the time there was NO QUALITY music coming from these bubble gum it's not like she was any worse than the others.

Mandy Moore is the epitome of mediocrity, except in her acting, which is terrible.

Yeah I also like her comment about Christina and Britney, that was very nice of her. I've liked her since she did the movie "Saved", but I agree the songs they had her singing were pretty bad, even though her voice itself isn't bad.

I like that she recognizes Britney and Christina as two talented entretainers in the pop world, not many people are humble enough to do that.

I love that she was around in the 90's and there has been no scandal about her: no drugs, no sex tape, no alcoholism.

It's funny, I hated her in the late '90s because I didn't think she was that talented (except as an actress), but she was really too young and new to the business that she couldn't do what she wanted creatively and had to flow with the pop tart mold. Despite that, I always thought that she had a good head on her shoulders. Nowadays I actually love her more than Britney or Christina.
