Singer/actress Mandy Moore has recently been struck with a nasty case of the blues. According to Newsday, the 22-year-old shared the bad news with Jane Magazine: "A few months ago I felt really low, really sad. Depressed for no reason … I'm a very positive person, and I've always been glass-half-full. So it was like someone flipped a switch in me. I wanted to figure out why."
It’s not because she starred in the painfully unfunny satire American Dreamz. Or even because her upcoming movie Because I Said So with Diane Keaton looks like the second coming of Monster-In-Law. Could it be because she and Scrubs goofball Zach Braff recently took a road trip to splitsville? "The breakup added to what I was going through, but it's not the complete reason … It definitely doesn't help if you're already in that place."
Being bummed is a bummer, and I think it takes some balls for her to come out publicly and talk about it. Even if she decided that Jane Magazine was the best outlet.
In an effort to improve her state of mind, Moore is working on a new record and she says that writing has been therapeutic for her. She also wants to apologize to fans for her earlier music which, like the rest of us, she is trying to forget. "I feel bad that people wasted their money on such trite, blah pop music," she says.
Because I Said So opens Feb. 2, and her soul-cleansing new CD should be coming out at some point this year.
