Jamelia: Motherhood Made Me Forget Lyrics

British R&B singer JAMELIA blames motherhood for forgetting her lyrics onstage. The star hadn’t performed live for two years after becoming a full-time mother to young children Teja and Tiani before she took to the stage in London last week. According to reports, she was so nervous she continually forgot the words to her songs. Jamelia says, “I am 100 per cent proof that pregnancy and motherhood make your brain go a bit mad. After having Teja my memory went really bad and after having Tiani I’m just all over the place. “It’s not just words I forget, it’s birthdays and things like that. I am notorious for forgetting my lines when I sing. I do it practically every live show but I’ve never had it to the extent I did the other night. I was totally taken over by nerves. Usually if I forget a line or a word or something, the audience would never know, I just carry on, but at that gig I just couldn’t. I forgot one word, then I forgot the line and then I forgot the verse – it was like, let’s just start again. After probably the fourth time I was so near to tears I was like, ‘Oh God, my career’s over, I’m never going to sing again.'”
