NAPOLEON DYNAMITE star Duff, older sister of teen singer and actress HILARY, was locked in a bitter battle with the hotel heiress over the track SCREWED, which they both recorded for their debut albums but never released.
And now 20-year-old Duff has taken her woes as a sign that her music career was never meant to be.
She says, "I'd really like to (get back into singing). I just haven't been focused on it. The first time when I was working on an album, I had all these problems with songs.
"I just don't like having a lot of drama in my life, and when it started happening, I was like, 'Maybe this is a sign that it's not the right time to do it.' It will come back when it's supposed to."
I confess a fascination -- perhaps unhealthy by definition -- with the actress/singer/empire Hilary Duff....
