Duffy: "Me violaron, me drogaron y me tuvieron en cautiverio"

La cantante explicó por qué se alejó de la industria musical y abandonó su carrera.

Cada vez que una celebridad de la industria del espectáculo decide dar un paso al costado, la conmoción es inmediata. Después de varios años alejada de los escenarios, la cantante galesa Duffy explicó qué la motivó a abandonar su carrera.

“Imagínense la cantidad de veces que pensé en escribir esto, la forma en que lo escribiría y cómo me sentiría después. Bueno, no estoy completamente segura de por qué ahora es el momento adecuado, y qué es lo que me emociona y libera hablar, no puedo explicarlo. Muchos de ustedes se preguntan qué me pasó, dónde desaparecí y por qué. Un periodista me contactó, encontró la manera de comunicarse conmigo y le conté todo el verano pasado. Fue amable y se sintió tan increíble finalmente hablar”, compartió la compositora en su perfil de Instagram.

You can only imagine the amount of times I thought about writing this. The way I would write it, how I would feel thereafter. Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it. Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why. A journalist contacted me, he found a way to reach me and I told him everything this past summer. He was kind and it felt so amazing to finally speak. The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days. Of course I survived. The recovery took time. There’s no light way to say it. But I can tell you in the last decade, the thousands and thousands of days I committed to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the sun does now shine. You wonder why I did not choose to use my voice to express my pain? I did not want to show the world the sadness in my eyes. I asked myself, how can I sing from the heart if it is broken? And slowly it unbroke. In the following weeks I will be posting a spoken interview. If you have any questions I would like to answer them, in the spoken interview, if I can. I have a sacred love and sincere appreciation for your kindness over the years. You have been friends. I want to thank you for that x DuffyPlease respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family. Please support me to make this a positive experience.

Duffy decidió contar su experiencia y explicó que se tomó su tiempo para hacerlo porque antes estaba demasiado triste. “La verdad es que, y confíen en mí, estoy bien y segura ahora. Fui violada, drogada y mantenida cautiva durante algunos días. Por supuesto que sobreviví, la recuperación tomó tiempo. No hay una forma ligera de decirlo. Pero les puedo decir que en la última década, de los miles y miles de días que me comprometí a querer sentir la luz del sol en mi corazón nuevamente, ahora, el sol brilla”, expresó la artista.

“Se preguntarán por qué no elegí usar mi voz para expresar mi dolor. No quería mostrarle al mundo la tristeza en mis ojos. Me pregunté, ¿cómo puedo cantar desde el corazón si está roto? Y lentamente se volvió a regenerar”, afirmó la cantante de 35 años.

Duffy había firmado un contrato en 2007, y a los 23 años grabó Rockferry. Su primer álbum se convirtió en el más vendido en el Reino Unido en 2008 e incluía Mercy, el sencillo que la popularizó.

En los próximos días, la compositora galesa publicará una entrevista grabada con detalles sobre cómo se alejó de su carrera a raíz de los episodios que le tocó vivir.
