*As successful as she appears to the outside world, apparently on the inside Jazmine Sullivan is in turmoil.
Seemingly from out of nowhere Sullivan, 23 and a protégé of Missy Elliott, just up and quit the business. At least that’s what she announced via Twitter on Sunday; she’s on hiatus ’til further notice:
“i’m making an official announcement that i am taking a break from music,” she tweeted. “i’m trying to figure out who i am… w/out a mike, paper or pen. i promised myself when it wasn’t fun anymore i wouldn’t do it. and here i am. [sic]”
As you can imagine, those tweets didn’t stay up too long before they were deleted by someone who we’d bet wasn’t Sullivan. At EUR press time, her label, J Records, had not commented.
Sullivan has been nominated for nine Grammys since her debut in 2009, including this year’s Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “Holding You Down (Goin’ In Circles).”
