Bella Thorne on scrapping album: 'I didn't want to release auto-tuned bad music'
Former Disney starlet Bella Thorne has revealed that she scrapped her entire album because she didn't like the way her voice sounded and didn't want to release something she wasn't proud of.
During an interview with WENN, the beauty explained that she wanted to re-record the tracks on the album, but was told there wasn't a budget to accommodate that so decided to just shut the project down and save a few songs for an EP:
"The reason why the album did not come out is because... look, I never wanted to really be an amazing singer. Honestly, I was tone deaf when I first got on the (Disney) Channel. I literally auditioned for Shake It Up! and I was like, 'I don't sing and I don't dance. I have no idea why I'm here'. Then Disney, we started this whole singing process and I signed this contract with Hollywood Records and I told them I wouldn't put out my album until my voice was good, until I worked on it, because there's no way I'm putting out... auto-tuned bad music. My father always told me, if you're going to do something, you better not do it half-a**ed. You have to be the best at what you do."
"And so it took a while for my album to come out because my voice was not good enough when I was on the show and I was like, 'There's no way I'm putting it out yet' so it ended up coming out later and by the time that I was off the show, my voice from the songs I had already done, I was so much younger, these songs they're like two years old. I asked if I could re-record them and they were like, 'No cos (sic) we don't have the budget for that' and so I ended up cutting eight/nine songs from the album and turned it into an EP..."
