One Hit Pop Star Blames 9/11 For Destroying Her Career

Willa Ford, known for her 2001 hit “I Wanna Be Bad,” shared why she thinks she never had another hit. “A lot of people don’t realize this, but my second single was released on September 11th, 2001. Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still, as it should have,” Willa told Billboard. “My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned." But despite the 16-year lull, she still has hopes of reviving her career, and there's an example she wants to follow. “When I look at Kylie Minogue, she did [her comeback] really right. She did ‘Loco-Motion,’ she went away for 20 years — which is almost how long I’ve gone away — and then she comes back with this amazing dance-pop record.” She added, “I really do miss music. It’s my first passion, my first love.”
