ContactMusic.com reports that Mandy Moore is set to sing about her split from tennis ace Andy Roddick on her forthcoming album. “I’ve co-written the whole thing and I spent the last year writing. I think it’s gonna surprise people,” Moore said. “It’s a very sophisticated, cool, singer-songwriter-y like organic pop record… It’s sort of just chronicling what’s happened in my life over the last year or so. A lot to do with love and heartbreak and stuff. But it’s my first kind of venture into like sitting down and actually writing. It’s been like the most cathartic thing I ever, ever could’ve done. And it’s so fun to sort of put something (on paper) that you’re not feeling not too great about and turn it into a positive thing.”

Just such a regular guy. I was like: ‘Oh my God, I hope all movie stars are like this!'”
