Hilary Duff is not interested in a provocative come-back

HILARY Duff is not going to make a "provocative" return to music, because she thinks its rapidly becoming cliched.


The former child star has taken a break for almost four years, but isn't planning a raunchy comeback like Miley Cyrus made in 2013, because it doesn't fit with her personality.

She told Canada's The Globe and Mail newspaper: "The music has changed a lot since I was last recording. There are a lot of artists out there being really provocative, wearing certain clothes and performing in certain ways, but right now that's just not me. 

"I've always tried to stay true to who I am and present that to the public because I think when you're not authentic, people can smell it on you. Besides, if everyone's doing the same thing then even being provocative isn't really provocative."

'Dignity' singer Hilary, 26, is glad she took a step away from the limelight to recharge and lead a normal life which has seen her marry her husband, former ice hockey player Mike Comrie in 2010 and have her first son, Luca, who is now 21 months old.

She added: "I think I was lucky that when a lot of my peers were reaching the heights of their careers, I decide to take a step back. I had been touring for four years, I was 19 and I just said, 'Enough.' There is so much pressure. I was employing so many people with my tours and paparazzi culture was getting out of control and I just didn't have any freedom to have a life. 

"I stayed away for three and a half years - I met my husband, I got married. Taking the time to learn who I am and who I want to be really helped. Now I'm ready to jump back in."
