Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie shocked everyone when they announced their separation back in January of this year. However, what was even more surprising is the fact that the couple was still on friendly terms, and even took vacations together. They both stated at the time of the split that they were committed to raising their adorable son, Luca. The reason for the split was they simply drifted apart.
Now, Duff is opening up about her separation from Comrie, and what role it had on her songs for her new album in an interview with Billboard. In her interview she was very candid and open about her marriage struggles, “I’m separated from my husband right now, which has been a very difficult thing to go through. But we have a lot of love for each other and we have this beautiful baby."
Like most artists she allowed what she was going through, and her own personal pain to shine through in her work, “There's a song on the album] about my separation and my love for this person, that maybe we're not meant to be together, maybe we are. It's very, very personal." When artists are able to tap into their emotions, and use that for their work most of the time incredible music ensues.
Hilary actually took a 5 year hiatus from the entertainment industry in order to relax a bit and spend time with family and friends, “After about five years, I was like I have no life, I have, like, two friends, I'm never home, I'm never with my family. I kind of needed to shut it all down. It was time for me to be a person and learn who I wanted to be."
Duff recently released a song off of her fifth album called “Chasing the Sun” along with the music video to go with it. Her fans are ecstatic to finally be getting new music from the star after a seven year break from music. Make sure to check out her new song and video!
