Mandy Moore became a bona-fide TV star thanks to This Is Us, but when she started her career way back in junior high, she was supposed to be the next Britney or Christina.
And then, she tells Bustle, she got real about it. Mandy says, “When I look back on being a pop star, those girls, they were made for it. They're dancers and they're entertainers and they're performers. They give their all -- and costume changes! -- and they can live on that level. And that was never going to be me.”
But after years away from the mic, she's set to give it another shot. "There's a lot of weirdness wrapped up in music for me that I still have to work through. That I don't think I'm good enough. That I don't think I'm deserving. That I clearly have to go to therapy for, but...I'm going to drop the bags, and I'm going for it."
