Actress Priyanka Chopra reveals why her music career only ‘lasted two seconds’
Priyanka Chopra has opened up on why she decided to turn her back on the music industry after a short-lived attempt at chart success.
The 40-year-old actress made a promising start with RedOne-produced debut single In My City, which was released in 2012 and featured will.i.am.
She followed it up the next year with Pitbull collaboration Exotic, but after that she turned her focus on acting instead.
Speaking to People magazine, she explained: “[It’s] insane what musicians do. I don’t know how they do it… tour life is really crazy. It’s so hectic.
“You have late nights, and early mornings, you’re travelling to a different city every day and you do it for three months.”
“That’s why my music career lasted two seconds,” she added. “I was not meant to do that. This rockstar life is... I admire it tremendously. It’s definitely not for the weak-hearted.”
The mum-of-one also said that the experience had given her a real appreciation for what her musician husband Nick Jonas, 30, does both as a solo artist and as one third of group Jonas Brothers, and touched on what it meant to her to be a “tour wife”.
She told the publication: “The tour wife thing, it was the first time I was doing it for the Happiness Begins Tour and it was fun, love, love, love them on stage. They’re an incredible experience when you watch them live and I don’t get enough of it.”
