While appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Mandy Moore opened up about her past, and talks about her 1999 single, "Candy".
"I’ve kind of come full circle with a lot of my older stuff," the This Is Us star said.
“We’re supposed to go on tour—I haven’t toured in 13 years, so it’s very precarious timing with everything that’s happening in the world,” she admitted to Fallon following the concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fallon then shared a throwback photo of the star, and the actress was quick to share her backstory.
“That was my very first tour,” she said. “I flew from doing the ‘Candy’ music video in Los Angeles to Virginia Beach, to open for *NSYNC on their summer amphitheater tour. It was a gig.”
“I have a song on my record called "Fifteen" and it’s talking about this exact time. I mean, I’ve been in this industry for 20 years now," she continued.
"I signed a record deal when I was 15 and sort of started in the industry. And, I think for a long time, I apologized for that time of my life and that, like, chapter because I had no creative control," she said.
“But, I’ve kind of come full circle to have a lot of affection for that girl because she lives in me and I carry her around. She’s the reason we’re talking," Moore explained.
Mandy Moore talks more about her self doubt of writing music, but is eager to share her new album Silver Landings.
