93.3 FLZ in Tampa had a couple unflattering photos, since removed, of Vanessa Carlton at the Big One v2.0, the station’s music festival. One features Vanessa with a booger up her nose and her nipples showing, while the other shows her practically swallowing a microphone.
Update – Contributed anonymously: Okay, a lot of you thought you saw a picture of Vanessa in which you saw a booger. Well, maybe that wasn’t the best picture to take, but that was actually her nose ring. I know what your thinking but practically every Vanessa fan on her message board has testified to that. The way her shirt was, was particularly her fault. But again the so called booger was really just part of her nose ring. I felt like I needed to clarify this so it doesn’t go any further. But people obviously had nothing better to do then to post that picture. Which is pretty pathetic.
