Adrienne Bailon is known for her strong peripheral, but she presented a softer lateral on The Real yesterday. When a fan inscribed in to request why Adrienne’s put her musical career on hold lately (she started out singing in both 3LW and the Cheetah Girls), Adrienne broke down in tears and acknowledged she was frightened of miscarriage.
“I’ve had this solo album that I’ve been saying is coming out for the last five years,” Adrienne said. “I’m scared to fail, I don’t like the sound of my own voice.”
Adrienne also self-confessed that employed in the industry hasn’t continuously been what she anticipated, and that things are much dissimilar for her now at 30 than they were at what time she got her jump at 16.
“It was about music and talent and singing. And to step out on my own and let my voice be heard, I’m scared. Like, what if people don’t like it? Or what if it’s not, I don’t know … what if it’s not successful? Like, I almost have been saying I would rather it not come out and just say, ‘Well, it just never came out,’ then for it come out and be wack.”
Co-host Tamera Mowry had Adrienne’s back, reminding her that, “Adrienne, you’re always the one telling me though, ‘Never live your life with what ifs,’ like, ‘What if I did this or did that’? So would you ever want to live your life asking yourself, ‘What if I never tried, I never went out there and did my own solo album!’ You’ll never know until you try it!”
