Honestly, what happened to Nelly Furtado? She was releasing hit after hit, and then she suddenly disappeared from the limelight.  

The 39-year-old singer-songwriter released her first album, Whoa, Nelly! in 2000, and whoa it was!

Smash hit songs like "I'm Like a Bird" and "Turn off the Light" have led her to becoming one of the most popular music artists in the early 2000s.

The Canadian-born artist sold more than 40 million records worldwide, has won a Grammy Award, and has a bunch of other hit singles that we all can sing by heart, like "Promiscuous," "All Good Things (Come to an End)," and "Powerless (Say What You Want)."

But what happened to her after all those early '00s hits?

Turns out she didn't turn into a bird and fly away, but took a five-year break from the music world, and went "undercover" to rediscover her creativity.

20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids. We are really lucky to have grown up in the time that we did, because we have gotten to experience the insanely fast technological advances that have been going on. Remember your first internet experience? You can probably still hear


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


'Murphy Brown' Revival Reveals Who They've Cast As Her Son But We're Still A Little Nervous

It was just a couple of months ago that we all got both excited and a little nervous for the Murphy Brown reboot. Sure, we loved the show when it originally aired, but as a rule, reboots are never as good as we want them to be. The show was unlike any others of its time. First of all, the lead character was a woman. Second of all, she was a woman with a controversial history. The recovering alcoholic was a career-focused woman, but she also made huge breakthroughs for women on television. She was a single mother, one who


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he
