Willa Ford Clarifies Comments About 9/11 & Her Music Career

Willa Ford is clarifying the comments she made about 9/11 and her music career, which led people to believe she blamed the tragic terrorist attack for her lack of success in the music industry.

The “I Wanna Be Bad” singer said that her second single was released on 9/11 and “everything that happened that day froze.”

“My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned,” she added in an interview with Billboard.

Willa spoke to People to clarify the comments after they went viral.

“In a recent interview with Billboard, I made a comment about the release of a single by my record label on September 11, 2001, where I stated ‘Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still as it should have.’ During the past day, other news outlets have taken the liberty to say that I somehow blamed 9/11 for my song not taking off … this could not be further from the truth,” Willa said.

“It was meant to be an inspirational piece about how the universe sent me in a new and different direction, one that has led me to success and joy in other areas of my personal and professional life,” she added.

Singer Willa Ford Cites 9/11 for Lack of Success in Music Career

Willa Ford, known for her 2001 hit “I Wanna Be Bad,” is speaking about why she thinks she never had another hit.

“A lot of people don’t realize this, but my second single was released on September 11, 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.”

“I really took a step back because I felt like I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to be doing at the time. I know that sounds crazy, but it was the perfect storm, and I walked away,” Willa continued. “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. For me it was groundbreaking in the states.”

“I really do miss music. It’s my first passion, my first love,” she added.
