Nelly Furtado suffered from writers' block
Hitmaker Nelly Furtado has revealed that she struggled with the creative process when working on her new album because she was writing in front of a camera crew sent in to make video blog updates.
The 'Like A Bird' songstress explained that videographers were sent in to capture her creating songs for 'The Spirit Indestructible', but she felt uncomfortable trying to work with an audience:
"It's become a content-hungry universe. The most important person on your team nowadays is your videographer because they're constantly filming you. But I'm quite private, so I get a little bit nervous about that stuff. At first, I wasn't able to write a song with the cameraman in the room."
"I've always admired people who can write like that. I've been there at hip-hop sessions where Kanye West will walk in and write in front of all 20 guys in his team. I'd be like, 'Oh my God!'"
Furtado admitted that it's great to let her fans have a real insight into the life of a musician so she fought past the block and eventually became able to pen tracks in front of a crew:
"The videographer would stay in the room and I eventually forgot he was there. It takes practice. It's another creative relationship."
