"Gollygoops," indeed
​Ryan Adams Was So High on Painkillers He Doesn't Remember Marrying Mandy Moore
Ryan Adams isn't afraid to defend himself on Twitter, but he's not even arguing with recent comments his ex-wife Mandy Moore made in an interview this week. She claimed that their marriage failed because "I didn't choose the right person" — and it turns out Adams doesn't even remember being chosen and getting married.
He joked that his and Moore's relationship was "doomed from the start" because she didn't like the Melvins or Blade Runner, then added "If only I could remember the start."
"When someone told me we got married I thought they were joking," he later elaborated. "Then I realized how many painkillers I was taking. Honestly there weren't enough to numb the shock. Gollygooops."
In slightly more vague terms, he then compared their marriage to getting "stuck to the spiritual equivalent of a soggy piece of cardboard."
Joking aside, though, he also shared a couple of posts for #WorldMentalHealthDay, sharing his own experience of having a nervous breakdown and encouraging people to be kind to one another — even if he has a tendency to be sarcastic and "bark back."
The Twitter drama all seems to stem from Moore's comments in the new issue of Glamour. She told the magazine that the marriage was "not the smartest decision," and that she herself felt "spiritually and fundamentally stuck."
"I don't feel guilty for it. I don't fault myself for it," she added. "When people said, 'I'm sorry,' I was like, 'No. Sorry would have been had I stayed in a very unhealthy situation.' I didn't. I found my way out. And when I did, things opened back up again."
Moore is currently engaged to Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith — who recently got a shout-out from Adams himself.
So maybe there isn't that much bad blood? Or perhaps we'll just have to wait for Adams' next record to find out what's really going on here.
