After the initial Sept. 20 release date came and went, the secondary Nov. 1 release date for Dev's studio debut has again been pushed back to Jan. 1, realizing Dev's initial fear and reason for not announcing her pregnancy right away.
The 22-year-old admitted that she anticipated that her baby news might delay the release of her album, or worse. "It is scary though. I also thought people were going to hate and/or be sad about this beautiful thing I'm experiencing and I wouldn't be able to celebrate. That I wouldn't be able to put out this album. I thought my label might drop me," Dev revealed.
So is the baby to blame for the delay? Dev seems to be taking the album push-back in stride.
"It was a little hard to change it and I didn't want any of my fans to be upset, but I knew that letting 'In the Dark' grow a little bit would be a positive thing for the album and I knew that being able to add more records would be good for the fans as well -- especially because I can't really perform right now given that I'm seven-and-a-half months pregnant," Dev said coming to terms with the reality of her pregnancy.
On the other hand, mom-to-be Beyonce refuses to let her pregnancy slow her down one bit, launching a new fragrance, releasing two music videos and strutting around town in stilettos while designing fashion-forward maternity wear, despite veteran showbiz mama Britney Spears' advice.
