Because my love for women trumps my surprise at her behavior, I'm kind of over the subject. I'm an empathetic and compassionate person, and I can't help but wonder if she is overworked, cranky with tiredness, (I know the feeling) and/or there is obviously something else going on in her life that made her react the way she did, to an article I didn't write, to quotes that were not even implied to be attributed to me. Read the article here, and make up your own mind:
The journalist himself admitted the content was taken out of context, something that happens all the time, something I am used to, and something I don't take so blisteringly personally. I phoned them up and informed them of as much, and besides, the interview was recorded, so I have absolute proof. As her tour manager told me, she wasn't interested.
At 37-years-old I'd assume she has a lifetime of a career under her belt and would not be so quick to react (and react irrationally and poorly) but what can I say? I don't know her, and I don't care to. Like I personally informed her camp, WE'RE ON THE SAME TEAM. Alas.
We spent that evening in New York with friends, and you can read a pretty unbiased account of an opinion of a music fan below. Unbiased, because we'd only just met, as music-lovin' strangers, and we gave her the story and let her read the article and decide. Her rational consideration and verdict is one I've heard echoed everywhere since this silly incident occurred.
Hope to see all those cities again soon (you know we will) when the Ettes return, without the baggage. (seriously, I left my suitcase in New Jersey, like the Tribe Called Quest song...)
