Branch Expands On Earlier Controversial Comments

Michelle Branch cleared the air on some of her very controversial comments that recently screenshot after the topic was immediately removed. On her criticism of Mandy Moore’s weird lisp and MTV hosting gig, she said, “My post about Mandy Moore ESPECIALLY wasn’t in any way in negative connotation. I was saying I felt like her because I was hosting an MTV show. Something she does quite often.”

As for her comments on Vanessa Carlton and not liking her “one fu**ing bit”, she said, “While I respect what Vanessa is doing and how far she has come along, I don’t necessarily care for her music. The reaction of laughter to my sarcasm was definitely NOT the reaction I got. And I’m sure Vanessa is sick and tired of being compared to me every time she does an interview! (Sorry Vanessa!!!) Bottom line, we are two different artists who happen to both write music, we are both female and we both have dark hair. But nowhere does it say you have to like either her or me.”

Don’t take her added comments as an apology though, as Branch said, “This isn’t really an apology because, well, I’m stubborn and I think maybe other people need to apologize for taking it the wrong way.” Branch also commented on the reaction to her vehement “I’m not a lesbian” answer that got lesbians hot under the collar as well.
