Group Description

Arena Girl #19

"The latter part of Harding's competitive career was marked by a series of accidents, incidents, and excuses, causing television commentators to observe that no competition was complete without Tonya having a crisis. Some of these "crises" included:

Harding has trouble with her costume at the 1993 U.S. Championships
Harding's loose blade incident at 1993 Skate America.
Harding asks the referee for a reskate after breaking her boot lace at the 1994 Winter Olympics."

"When she speaks about how her own songs "literally saved my life", she really means it. Her battles with drink, drugs and a host of unsuitable suitors before 2001's triumphant No More Drama album are well documented, not least by herself. But while she doesn't shy away from the darker side of her past, she doesn't wallow in it either. The success of The Breakthrough has proved that she doesn't have to be constantly pressing the self-destruct button in the way that she described on her second album, My Life. "I just had to let you know," she explains after "Father in You", a song about her absent father. She then, however, follows up with the jubilant "I Found My Everything". Blige hasn't forgotten that it's a sunny Saturday night."
