• The R&B singer, 27, is back with The Declaration, her first studio disc since 2004, which features the hit cheating song “The Way That I Love You.”

WHAT SHE’S BEEN UP TO I filmed two movies, John Tucker Must Die and Resident Evil: Extinction. And I found out that I really like to play golf—I’m actually good!

WHAT REALLY INSPIRED THE VIDEO FOR “THE WAY THAT I LOVE YOU” I was watching a show called Snapped on the Oxygen channel. It’s [about] women who have snapped and were locked up. Their heart was broken too many times, [so] they hurt their spouse. In no way, shape or form do I support violence, but I identify with feeling so betrayed.

WHAT’S THE BEST REVENGE SHE’S EXACTED ON A GUY One of my exes hung up the phone on me [during] an argument, so I found his Timberlands in my closet, took a razor blade and cut them until nothing but the sole was left.
