Willa Ford is setting the record straight, or so People claims in the lede of its interview with the singer-turned interior designer, which states: “Willa Ford is setting the record straight.” Earlier this week in an interview with Billboard, Ford listed 9/11 as one of the causes of her career’s downturn. Referring to “Did Ya’ Understand That,” a song that both Wikipedia and Discogs as being released on December 4, 2001, she said:

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. My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned. I know that sounds silly, but on radio they slate things, but it really fell to the wayside.

But now she’s saying she didn’t blame 9/11 on the death of her music career. Hm. Per People, Ford says:

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.

Since we’re backpedaling, let’s cruise back a few quotes and revisit this one: “My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned.”

Babe, you totally blamed your single’s failure on 9/11.

To People, Ford continued:

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.

I’ll tell you what inspires me: All this new Willa Ford content. I really hope it never stops!

Some Pig. Terrific. Radiant. Humble.
