VV Brown has announced she's retiring from the world of music for the fore­see­able future. In a fairly lengthy Facebook post that you should read because it's a nice one, she said:

Music you are everything but it's time to say goodbye for now. Maybe an album will be released as a hobby and my ideas will still manifest for fun but for now I put a peace sign up and say thanks for the ride. You made me strong, determ­ined, stable and I will always remain a fighter but it's time for a new match.

She says she's got a book coming out "which includes eating cheese­bur­gers with Stevie Wonder to a Hulk Hogan arm wrestle", so that's something to look forward to.

Seriously though, some actual bangers:

Good luck Vanessa!
