Mandy Moore doesn’t like her own music, femalefirst.co.uk reports.
The singer says she has never recorded a “quality” song because her record company chose all her music.
The 25-year-old star said: “The music is all a reflection of me now, not somebody else’s choices. I was just told to show up and what to sing. That was late-’90s pop music for you.
“I found myself in the company of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, who had really quality music, much more so than mine,” she said. “I’m sure there are people scratching their heads, going ‘Wow, how is she still around?’”
Moore hopes her new album — titled Amanda Leigh, which is her real name — will change her bubblegum pop reputation.
She is also relying on alternative country musician Ryan Adams — whom she married last month — who is teaching her to play piano and guitar.
Mandy told Details magazine: “When it comes to the possibility and potential to collaborate, or to be able to run decisions or ideas by someone, it’s nice to have that. I feel very lucky, you know?”
