Brandy: Monica And I Are In Different PlacesThu, May 24, 2012
Speaking candidly on promotions for the project this week, Brandy says she and Monica are in different places following "It All Belongs To Me" and reuniting for a tour may not be the right option at this point.
"Honestly, we haven't really talked about it since we stopped promoting "It All Belongs to Me." I just honestly think Monica and I are in different places in our music. And my vibe is a little bit different this time around so I don't know. I kind of wanna do my own thing," Brandy tells Bark Bite. "I definitely feel like the fans would want a tour from us, but I don't know, I just feel like I'm being pulled in a different direction. I'm definitely still open to it, but right now I'm looking in a different way right now for me."
While Brandy is still open to touring with Monica, she is not open to watching the much- talked-about Behind The Music special that aired on VH1 last month.
"I actually have never seen it. I lived it and I was definitely open in talking about it, so there's no need for me to watch it. It felt like a weight was lifted and I appreciate VH1 wanting to do a Behind the Music with me because it was so needed for me just personally and emotionally," Brandy says of the revealing hour long event. "Just being able to tell my story and be very transparent with the people that loved me for so long and also, to reach the people that were confused about the things that happened or were judgmental or whatever the case may be. I was able to confront that. And taking responsibility always relieves you in so many ways. So it was very liberating for me, and I was so glad I did that because now I don't have to talk about any of that anymore. It can really be about going forward and what my music represents and what my life is and my purpose."
In other news, Brandy is prepping to shoot a music video for "Put It Down." Featuring Chris Brown, the single is one Brandy believes will take off once visuals are put out there.
"I'm making sure we have the right video because one of the things that I feel has been missing for a very long time with me is visuals. So we just wanna make sure we have the right visual and I really believe everything is in divine time," says Brandy.
Attending the Billboard Music Awards Sunday, Brandy also called their collaboration a blessing.
"I'm blessed to have a new song out after four years. To have a song featuring Chris Brown is another blessing," Brandy claimed before thanking fans. "We wouldn't be anything without you."
Brandy's anticipated album "Two Eleven" is due later this year.
