The Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is ashamed of her brief singing career, insisting she never wanted to release the album.
The 25-year-old signed a record deal after becoming famous on hit mob drama The Sopranos, but she regrets her foray into the music industry because promoting her 2001 album HERE TO HEAVEN made her "miserable".
She recalls, "I was 18 years old and the show was just starting to get popular. I had been singing in musical theatre for years. Somebody found out I sang and offered me a deal. It was cool - I'd never been in the recording studio before. But it started going really fast. I got caught up in it, and I didn't feel it was right, or it was me.
"Next thing I knew, I was shooting a video and promoting this CD, and I almost didn't want to put it out. I didn't like it, but I felt like I had to fake it and pretend I liked it, like I was this artist who cared about my music. I wasn't.
"I feel bad saying this because people would die for that opportunity, so I don't want to sound unappreciative, but I was miserable and sort of embarrassed. I was praying people would forget about it."
