Buzzy Wuzzy: Jazmine Sullivan Hangs Up Her Mic

Monday, January 3, 2011

With the new year comes changes, and if you're Jazmine Sullivan, you're making a big change. Sullivan took to her Twitter to make an announcement that she is hanging up her mic and leaving the music industry. 

She quotes:
I'm trying to figure out who I am, without 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 won’t ever sing again in my life becuz I dont believe that. But in this moment, rt now…I got some things to figure out”.

Such a shame. After hearing her last album, Love Me Back, she showed such promise, but in some respects I do feel her situation. Maybe fame came too swiftly and it overwhelmed? Maybe she didn't want to bend to label pressures to make her into something she wasn't? Or maybe the industry, as we all know, just didn't sit with her?  Whatever the case, I wish her the best, and hope that she does decide to return after she takes that time for herself, because she's one of the few young vocalists out there that was really bringing back that singer-songwriter vibe.
