In everyone’s life comes a period when he/she really needs a break – a possibility of leaving everything behind – trying to experiment another sort of living – just getting away from all that is.
Utada Hikaru – renown japanese artist announced that she needs a break and she will leave the music stages behind starting next year.
Even when you are very good at something – and I can say that her music is amazing – sometimes [not always] you want to change something. Why be good when you can be great?
As for her words that announced us she will come back more “mature” – this statement only makes me think of 1 thing.
She would probably change her style – making her music more profound.
Anyways, that 1 million hits on her blog after announcing this says everything – Utada and her music are needed.
