“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 dont 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.”
– Jazmine Sullivan tweets her departure from the music industry
I would be fronting something terrible if I sat here and acted as if I was directly effected by Jazmine Sullivan’s decision to take a break from the music industry. As much as I acknowledge her vocal talent and songwriting skills, I can’t call myself a fan at the moment. Still, I have to reiterate that I wholeheartedly believe Jazmine has an obvious God given talent, one that can still carry her career as far as she chooses if she decides to come back.
