In an exclusive statement to PerezHilton.com, the Australian tells us:
i just wanted to let you know my plan,today at least.
i am going to promote and tour the shit out of this record because i am proud of it,and i have made a commitment to many people to do so.
my plan is to keep making records,but not promote or tour them.
my plan is to do maybe 3 gigs a year,in a different city of the world every year,until i'm too tired or fat to get out of the house.
i want to have a baby,we are planning one and i want that to be a priority over the next few years.
of course everything changes,and i don't want to be one of the kids that cry wolf for attention. i really am finding it incredibly nerve wracking,being picked apart and observed and finding myself responsible for so many peoples feelings,needs and sometimes even incomes. i'm even shaking right now,as it type this,after just having gone to your site for a bit of juicy gossip i never thought i would become.
i really am living the dream of a ten year old that thought if she was famous her dad would love her more.
as a 34 year old woman i'm realizing i was not built for this kind of scrutiny,and i am not comfortable with it.
i wanted to thank you for your support over the years,you really helped my career and i know you were a genuine fan,which i appreciated.
i'm sad you don't like 'you lost me' but i understand one can't please everybody all the time,so i just hope her fans do.
i'm gonna have a break from everything but email on the internet for a while, but wanted to clarify what's happening for me right now,seeing as you are the queen of all media.
love on a lobster
And there you have it!
Congrats on the baby news!
