Almost all celebs will go to awards shows. for the camaraderie and the being seen aspect of show business. She still does shows. Just not a lot.But I still see her on the TV screen as the cameras always seem to find her sitting in the audience at the awards shows. Nobody can really do what she did. If I could pick one to get lost with on an island it would be her.
She had a remarkable amount of control very early in her career. Her and her husband are very astute business people.Maybe she got fed up being handled by the machine and wanted more control. Best I can tell is Blackbird Studio is a top notch studio...a place to aspire to record.
