Singer Jazmine Sullivan Says She’s Taking A Break From Music

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 01/03/11

Jazmine SullivanJazmine Sullivan broke onto the music scene in 2008 with her debut single "Need U Bad," then followed with the hit "Bust Your Window" -- both of which helped her debut album, Fearless, hit gold sales and be nominated for a Grammy.

Despite her success, the singer isn't feelin' what's going on in music, and shocked fans Sunday evening (January 2) when she announced she would be taking a break.

Sullivan took to her Twitter page (@JSullivanMusic) to reveal the news to more than 90,000 of her fans/followers.

"i'm making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music," the singer wrote. "i'm trying to figure out who i am... w/out a mike, paper or pen. i promised myself when it wasn't fun anymore i wouldn't do it. and here i am. [sic]"

Mysteriously, the tweets disappeared, and later, Sillivan explained that she is just "switching things up", after fans inquired about her sudden change of heart from what made her famous.

"i'm fine everyone. just switching things up a bit till i get it right," she wrote. "now kanye... thats who we should have a prayer circle for. lolol"

At press time, there was no official statement regarding her comments.

    This is a mistake. She is just establishing her self as an
    artist and she taking a break from music. Jazmine hasn't been on
    tour yet and I would've loved to see her perform live. I am a fan
    of her music and hopes she can come to love her craft. Both of her
    albums were great from beginning to the end. Thats is hard to find
    these days especially in a new artist.I will miss hearing music
    that woman can relate too.Do you Jazmine hope you find yoursself
    soon. Your fan Drea :-(

    I think I should be shocked , but I'm not. Her music wasn't selling that much, going Gold doesn't mean too much. I like her music though. I hope she is able to find herself and eventually come back to music.

    I think that jazzey needs to do what makes her happy because in reality there's no real money in making music if you don't reach. Platinum status

    This really is unfortunate... Both of her albums were exceptionally well, especially being a new artist. I don't think people see her full potential because she's staying true to herself and not trying to be defined by what the media thinks she should be or look like. She's received a lot of slack for being a thicker girl, but her weight doesn't and shouldn't take away from what am amazing voice she has and talent she emits. Jazmine, please find your happy back in music. We need more artists like you in this watered down industry!
