Jen Majura On Getting Fired From Evanescence: “I’m Still In Shock”

During a recent appearance on The Haunted guitarist Ola Englund’s “Coffee With Ola,” Jen Majura further opened up about her departure from Evanescence. The guitarist says she is “still in shock” about the whole situation.

Majura said the following:

“I believe, honestly, it’s three weeks now since I got the news, and I’m still in this blurry, oblivious momentum. I guess I’m still in shock, kind of, because after being married six years, all of a sudden you’re divorced.

You know me, I always try to find the positive in a situation, so every day, step by step — I’m not doing great yet — but every day I find little tiny things that I’m, like, ‘Oh, actually, this is good.'”

She continued when asked how she received the news:

“Honestly, I was cleaning my apartment, and I got the phone call. And first of all, I was, like, ‘Is this a bad joke?’ And I remember, after I got the news, I hung up, and I have this hallway in between my studio and my living room, and I just lay there on the floor, staring at the ceiling, wondering what that was, and literally looking over to my suitcase that I had already started packing, because I was two weeks from going out on the road until pretty much the end of the year.”

She also revealed that she has already been offered roles in other projects:

“I would like to consider [some of these other offers], but not now, not yet. Because I feel like it would be not a nice move if I played the okay person when I’m still processing. I’m not ready to jump into the next marriage right now.

To be really honest, what I wanna do right now is, first of all, focus on me and my music again. Because what I realize is that you, when you… It’s difficult to say… I feel like I lost a little bit of my music inside of me during these past years, because… What I right now do, what I right now want to do is I wanna reconnect with myself and feel and hear and play my music again. And who knows? The plan is, so far — you heard it here first — I’m gonna write my third solo album.”

Majura also added:

“I’m hurt. I’m hurt and still in this blurry confusion of what just happened. I’m getting there. Like I said, it would be wrong of me if I would play the ‘hey, I’m totally okay’ Jen. It’s tough. And like I said, I’m still not great. But I’m getting there every day with tiny little things that make life beautiful.”
