Jazmine Sullivan recorded “hundreds” of songs while she was signed to Jive Records, but when the R&B singer was 18, preparing to begin a full time career as a singer, the label dropped her. “That was a big blow,” she tells Dan DeLuca of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I was angry. Everybody was going off to school, and I had already decided I wasn’t going to college because singing was going to be my career.” Sullivan says looking back, she understands why it didn’t work out. “They didn’t know what to do with me,” she explained. “I was young and I didn’t know what to do with my own self. I didn’t know who I was, so I couldn’t take control of my career and tell them what I wanted to do.” The full story at philly.com has since been removed.
