When you strip back the words 'pop star' and the many things that Ive done, singing soulfully is where my core, my root and my heart really is.

Liberation


Shes backing the album up with a huge North-American tour that will cover 22 cities; it's her first since 2008.

 

"When you strip back the words 'pop star' and the many things that Ive done, singing soulfully is where my core, my root, and my heart really is," she told Billboard. "And as you can see, its what Im inspired by."

 

The new album has a more gritty and raw feel to it due to the R&B and hip-hop sounds throughout, but her signature vocals remain the highlight.

 

She said, "I was longing for freedom. I would just take everything off -- the makeup, all of it -- and would blast hip-hop, or Nirvana, 'Creep,' Slayer. Anything like that to get me out of that zone, that TV mode."
