Mandy Moore opens up about her new album and ex Ryan Adams: 'He’s taken so much for so long from so many people'

Throughout her relationship with Adams — who is also a producer — Moore’s music career stagnated. She shares that while Adams did not want her to work with anyone else musically, he was also not working with her to put her new work out there. The result was a crisis of self-worth. Moore says she began asking herself questions like, “‘Am I good enough? What do I bring to the table?’ Because if my creative partner and romantic partner can’t even make time or doesn’t want to work with me, where does that leave me?”
