After being away from the music industry for almost four-years, the soulful singer is back with a new album titled “Reality Show”. The album is Sullivan’s third studio album. Recently on New York based morning show the Philadelphia native opened up about the real reason she decided to step away from the music industry.
Back in 2011, the Grammy-nominated songstress tweeted that she was leaving the industry because “it wasn’t fun anymore”. In the interview, the now 27-year-old Sullivan revealed that she left the industry because she was in a very abusive relationship. “I left music because I was in really bad relationship. It had gotten abusive. Just having to deal with the industry and that my personal life was so bad, I had to go.” She said.
The songstress admitted that her former boyfriend was abusive to the point where the abuse turned physical. She said the turning point was an incident where he slapped her so hard she was unable to hear from one of her ears, which could’ve ended her career. She admitted that when she wrote the tweet back in 2011 it was to cover up what was really going on. She explained “When I wrote that, I was going through some things, so I was kinda just trying to give an excuse without really telling what exactly was going on with my life. That was the thing that I could say without saying ‘You know what everybody, I’m going through some real s***.”
Her featured single on her album “Forever Doesn’t Last” addresses her break up with her former boyfriend. She said it was therapeutic for her to get through her failed relationship. You can listen to the song below and don’t forget that the album “Reality Show” is in stores now!
