Back with her first album after eight years. The Brandy Norwood opened-end up about fame, family and her decades-long battle with depression. Before we get into the meat and potatoes we would like to take a moment and simply say “Thank You.” A lot of times celebs shy away from reality and issues us “normal” people have. We feel like the “Moesha” actress kept it real with herself and us.

Okay, now girl tell us what happened…

“I was a little bit lost eight years ago musically, creatively, spiritually.” 

“I had to pull myself together, I had to pull it all together and make it all make sense.”

“I remember laying in bed super depressed,” she says. “I [told] myself, ‘So, you’re just going to go out like this? That’s wack. You have a daughter. If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life.'”
