mandy moore quote of the day

"I wasn't happy, and I don't think [the record company] was particularly happy.

I wasn't interested in going into the studio and singing about shoes and boys and, you know, dealing with whatever hot producer-of-the-week they wanted to have me work with. People see me as a sweet person and I'd much rather people say that of me than anything else. But it has its limitations.

I'd rather people say, 'Wow, she's an actress and musician' than 'Oh, she does all those cute movies.' I need to challenge myself so people will say, 'Wow, I didn't expect that. Cool."

- Mandy Moore, to the New York Post, on why she left pop music.

    She gave an excellent performance in "Saved" (2004). She should continue to cut her acting teeth in indie films for the strong dramatic roles.

    Sad when kids get involved but older ppl should know better. If u really wanna have any control over ur music this day and age indie is the way to go and u can start small time and BUILD something. Of course she was just a kid but I wished even kids parents wouldn't be so fame and $ hungry when it comes to art.

    Sorry honey, no one even knows you exist now.

    i think she's great. it's sad because i don't think she's as recognized as she deserves, but i think she's happy where she is right now. and i agree with her when she says about working with the hot-producer-of-the-week. she's one of the few girls that started sweet and remained sweet. even hilary duff that i NEVER in a million years thought would look like a whore, did some music videos that i definitely didn't expect.

    not really a fan of her, but i did love "Candy." lol. and i agree with Re: Wild-Guitar – , SAVED was a good movie.



  8. 8

    This makes me like her even more. I enjoyed the pop music she made, but I much prefer the music she puts out now. And I like her even more as an actress.



  9. 9

    And that's, you know, cause so many people talk about her. lol



  10. 10

    but she can't stop talking about it and she hasn't worked in years.



  11. 11

    I can understand her comments.

    But yeah, she should build up cred in the indie movie market.

    Mandy *is* working. She's the voice of Rapunzel in "Tangled", which beat Harry Potter as #1 the 2nd week it was released.
