Amita "Tata" Young was all smiles in front of the press on Wednesday. She was there to talk about her show that night at the Holland Beer House, but she was also ready to talk about her busted relationship - and she admitted there have been plenty of tears.
Gone is the gloried and storied nine-month engagement to Prem Bussarakhumwong, whose family runs a boxing gym.
In its place was a cold question: Does Tata dare to love again?
There was a long pause. It's definitely the toughest question of all, Tata said, but she was soon affirming that she's not sick of love.
"I think everyone has to love, and I still want to love someone," she stressed.
The crying, she said, has been "a relief" - that and a computer boxing game that's helped her work off the stress of the break-up.
Tata has the blues, her manager Mu Fuengarom acknowledged, but she'll be all right in due time. "Everyone close to her is giving her moral support," Mu said, and lots of fans have found ways to cheer her on.
The press wanted to know what went wrong. Tata refused to be drawn on the details, other than pinning most of the blame on their conflicting work obligations.
"I got a chance to do a new album and Prem has his new projects too. So we have less time to talk."
She's just returned from recording the new CD in Germany.
In fact, she said, they haven't talked for four months.
As well, Tata didn't think it was fair to Prem having to share the glare of her spotlight, especially when things got personal. There was a lot of chatter when people noticed that both had stopped wearing their engagement rings.
"Whatever people say, Prem will always be a good man in my eyes, and I wish him luck and I'll love him forever. We're good friends."
Tata backed up what Prem's parents have already said - that no third party came between them. That's a rumour that doesn't seem ready to quit just yet.
