  1. Duffy: I Was 'Raped, Drugged and Held Captive'

    "Many of you wonder what happened to me," the British singer — whose debut album Rockferry sold 9 million copies and snagged a 2009 Grammy for best pop vocal album — wrote on Instagram Tuesday. In the post, she revealed that the harrowing experience, which occurred sometime after 2011, had kept her away from music for nearly a decade. Duffy wrote, "How can I sing from the heart if it is broken?"
