Carlton says she’s able to relax by playing music, “Me just sitting in a room with my piano is my release with no time ticking. It’s what still gets me through. I don’t understand how artists who don’t write their music find release. Like with Britney, for example, who has such a grueling schedule, I wonder how much harder [it is] for her because she can’t go to a piano or a guitar and just down and sing and play her heart out. I wouldn’t know what to do if I couldn’t do that.” The full story at ew.com has since been removed.
