Apparently Michelle Branch’s momma didn’t teach her better than that because she seems to have posted negative comments about Vanessa Carlton in the official part of her internet forum on Sunday 3/17/02. The negative comment was reported in Q & A form as follows:
Q. Do you like Vanessa Carlton?
A. Not one fu**ing bit”
The lengthy post was quickly removed, but one piece of incriminating evidence remained, an additional thread posted by Michelle that day:
Needless to say, this had the usually yawner of a forum in an uproar with the Michelle fans divided into two basic camps:
Camp 1 : “Michelle would never say anything like that. It must have been a hacker….” These fans would be the most disappointed if Michelle admitted she posted the offending message.
Camp 2: “It’s great that Michelle has an opinion, that she expresses herself….” These sheep would jump off a bridge if Michelle asked them to do so.
As of this moment, there is no official explanation for the post or why it was deleted.
