» Cat Power and Giovanni Ribisi at the Fullfillment Fund Benefit Gala (Beverly Hills, 2009)
Apparently Chan Marshall is no longer involved with Ribisi (it was presumed they were in a relationship); from what I perceived from The Stool Pigeon interview to Cat Power , that was the cause of her recent dissatisfaction:
“She also went into the reasons behind the long gap between albums, explaining that after the release of Jukebox she had gotten into a serious long-term relationship - which broke up just as the album was being completed. “I entered a long relationship which I really wanted to be successful,” she said. “You know that thing we’re all raised to want: a beautiful life with children — that family thing that is tangible?”
