If you were coming of age in the late ’90s, you’ve seen Mandy Moore evolve from pop star to rom-com starlet to superstar. Her decadeslong career has proven she will not accept a place on the fringe and belongs in the spotlight. This month, she releases a new album, Silver Landings, and embarks on a nationwide tour, stopping in Boston on March 22 for a show at the Orpheum Theater.
“This is all I ever wanted, to be able to stick around somehow, and I’ve managed to do that. I feel like that’s a feat in and of itself.”
“For quite a number of years, I was really trying to redefine myself; I was hungry for a challenge that people weren’t willing to just give me permission for... We all contain multitudes.”
“I feel lucky that everything aligned at the right time in my life, where people were willing to see beyond what maybe they had expected of me earlier in my career.”
“Life is a roller coaster. I know this is an extraordinary time, and I am present. I’m literally devouring every morsel of it and appreciating it for what it is because I remember when times did not feel the same.”
“I just want to take stock of all of it and do what I love. This moment isn’t gonna last forever. I want to really dig my heels in while I can.”
