TALKS TO

Guilt is a recurring theme in your book. You felt guilty being singled out from your sisters for a solo career?

Yes, my momma always dreamed of us being a female version of the Jacksons. Writing about it was therapeutic, but then I felt guilty because I had to tell a little of others’ stories to tell mine!

You also felt guilt when your son Diezel, now 11, was diagnosed with autism.

I thought I was being punished for having had an abortion. But I realized there is nothing wrong with my baby. He just learns differently.

You divorced a year ago; how do you feel about love now?

I was disappointed in love. I’d think, “Oh God, I’m singing ‘Unbreak My Heart,’ and it’s my life!” But now I’m in a better place. I can’t wait to get married again.
