Vanessa Carlton Looking Forward To ’07
December 30, 2006 – Vanessa checked in with fans on her official web site’s forum on December 19th. “Hello all. Every year around this time my family and I go to Arizona to ride horse, hike, and soak in hot water with the occasional margarita,” Carlton writes. “It’s great. I am looking forward to next year with high hopes and genuine excitement. I’ve also found such a sense of peace over the past year. I hope the songs on this next record reflect these last two years in the most musical way possible. Just to remind everyone (in case you read an inaccurate article that makes you question) I am of course continuing on with my Vanessa sound (Ew, I hate 3rd person talk). Hopefully, I’m just becoming a better version of myself. There will not be any inauthentic, desperate to sell, musical sound changes goin on over her. Also, I’m gonna take the plunge and officially call this next record ‘Heroes and Thieves’ (will explain title next year). I love it love it. Also, I feel particularly thankful to have such attentive fans. Seriously. You guys are why I put my music down on tape in the first place. K. Gotta get on me horse. xxoxo v”
Gotti: Carlton Has Cred With ‘My Culture’
November 1, 2006 – The Inc. boss Irv Gotti has posted several messages on Vanessa Carlton’s official web site forum since introducing himself last weekend. In one message, Gotti wrote, “It’s funny though. Because I roll the windows down and blast ‘Ordinary Day’ (which I believe is arguable one of the hottest songs she has ever made. The way she is flowing and singing on that. And the words are all very special to me) and sing it at the top of my lungs. People in the hip hop world look inside and be like hey thats Irv Gotti. And then there like what the hell is he blasting in his Maybach. And I say that’s Vanessa Carlton. She is the SH**! Funny thing is alot of people from my culture already know and love V. It’s weird to me sometimes. It’s mostly from ‘A Thousand Miles’. When we went to London to go hang out with Jay-Z. I know she was a lil shocked with all the ‘Thuggish’ type guys that me and Jay know saying how they love her music. hahahahaha.”
