Quite an interesting (and very sad) interview with KT, the first time she's really spoken about the divorce and the death of her dad. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/event/article-2329101/KT-Tunstall-I-rock-n-roll-cliche--I-I-wasnt-happy.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

How amazing are those photos people?!

Had a look at this the other day, found it really interesting but felt so sad reading it! And I completely adore the photo of her with the guitar towards the bottom :smt023

I'm always a bit wary of clicking anything marked 'daily mail' and I will keep myself out of the comments section to avoid rage.

That's a really sad article. I read a lot of celebrities biographies (it's my only vice :lol:) and it always depresses me if I've been to concerts or loved and album and then read 3 years down the line "and it was the most miserable time of my life". That's kind of the feeling I got from that. I've obviously seen KT a LOT and to read that she was secretly so unhappy is a really horrible thought.

As for her father, I saw him at a gig in November 2011 and it did strike me that he possibly had Parkinson's. My beloved Papa had the same, and he reminded me a lot of him.

I think we are programmed as humans to function on a daily basis to the point of not actually knowing how miserable we are/have been until forced into self-reflection. Her trip to Greenland was supposed to be that reflection moment but that really was just a tourist trip with a bunch of hippies. Losing a father and discovering the proper bond isn't there for her husband, now that's heavy stuff. I wouldn't fret about her feeling a profound sadness while you enjoyed her performances Nat. Chances are, she didn't even know it right at the moment.

KT is a smart lady. She'll be fine. Life is all about change, challenges and just chugging along.

A tear went down my cheek when I read about her dad. It's such a sad interview, but now I understand why she divorced Luke and what was (and still is) going on in her life.

Thanks a lot for the article, quite intimate and gives us some insight on how she's feeling now and before.

Quote:
You have a choice with all those emotions,’ she says. ‘You can choose to hide them, to avoid them or you can make yourself feel everything, from complete devastation to relief to sadness to shock, all of it. You have to go through it and realise that this is it. This is life. This is everything.’


I really hope she is now going to do what really makes her happy.
The part when she talks about having children made me a bit sad because if in the end she doesn't have any, I hope it'll be by choice and not fate.

Photos are gorgeous, esp this one:

And just because:

That level of celebrity is like Narnia on acid.

Bless her! It's nice to learn a little but more about all this because obviously it's had such a huge impact on her. It's refreshing to see a person, more so someone i look up to so much, take stock of their life and think, "yeah, actually, i'm really not happy" and then actually do something about it. It takes A LOT of courage to do that and i have even more respect for her now than i ever have. *wipes proud tear*

Also i'm never giving up hope of Tunstall babies! :mrg:

I agree, just the fact of accepting the fact that you're not happy even though you have 'everything' is hard. Even more respect for her now, and I'm glad she seems to be in a good place now.

This article gives me the fear a bit. Why bother planning my life if in 10 years I'm going to feel completely different about everything?! :lol:

R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
First, for being so open about everything, she didn't have to do that at all. Second, for choosing for change. Must've been incredibly scary. It's really strange how when someone you love dies, it can open your eyes in such a way you totally turn things around, makes you see what's REALLY important, and also what really isn't, like you suddenly can put thing in perspective. It's just a shame that when you do change things for the better, that person will not be there to see it anymore.
Either way, I really hope she'll be able to make herself happy from now on.

It's really weird and obviously everyones relationships are different, but I can relate so much to what she says about her dad, with my (grand)dad passing away last year as well. More and more I think in many ways this album is gonna be a special one for me.

Seriously, one doesn't need 10 years for that! I'm starting to think that it's never a good idea to plan too far ahead, you're gonna change your mind anyways, sometimes quicker than other times but in the end you will end up changing it, so best live by the day or at most, by the year or something.
Most of the time I feel the exact same way KT describes, except that I don't have all the boxes ticked nor do I have the balls or the option to just quit with everything. I do know that if I should do it all again I would NEVER study medicine for example :roll:
