Evanescence singer Amy Lee told Jam! Music earlier this week that she can’t see herself touring for her entire career. Lee said that being in a rock band is “pretty weird most of the time,” adding, “I get tired of touring and want to go back and write. It’s those two extremes that I get tired of. I’m not doing this forever.” The vocalist told Launch that she has other ambitions in life, including making different types of music. “I want to move on into other fields later in life, definitely, but I’m not there yet,” she said. “I would love to do musical scores for movies. I love scoring, so I’d love to do that. That would be fun. Like, if I ever wanna, like, when I’m old, be a mom and work at home, like, it’d be so awesome to just have a studio in my house and just work on scoring stuff. Not have to tour.”
Amy got engaged to boyfriend Josh, a therapist, Monday evening (Jan. 8) while the band was in Toronto to perform at the Air Canada Centre.
The longtime friends have been dating for about a year. It will be her first marriage.
Lee, 25, said Josh, 28, got down on one knee for a traditional proposal. She broke the news by phone to mother Sara Cargill Tuesday morning.
The Evanescence hit “Call Me When You’re Sober” was written by Lee about her former boyfriend, Seether singer Shaun Morgan.
Amy Lee appeared last month at Korn’s taping of “MTV Unplugged”, which will premiere in February. Her performance of “Freak on a Leash” with the band heads to rock radio stations later this week.
