Mandy Moore’s relationship with tennis star boyfriend Andy Roddick has thrust the singer and actress further into the spotlight. “I think it’s difficult for both of us, but probably for him more so, because he’s never been used to people asking about his personal life,” Moore told the CBS Early Show. “I think being in this industry you sort of open yourself up a bit more for that kind of scrutiny. It’s odd. It’s weird to talk about each other. It’s weird for people to want to know bits and pieces of your relationship.

Because I had been absent from the music scene for two years and I know I hadn’t had too much musical success, so there were no expectations. I felt like I had the creative control to make whatever sort of record I wanted. When I started to compile a list of my favorite songs, the more I thought about it, I thought I can be selfish and kind of self-serving and do this music, not only just for me but to introduce people my age to it, who might be unfamiliar with some of these artists and music.” Read more.
