A former fan of Vanessa Carlton sounded off on her official message board following the show in Hershey, PA where Vanessa performed along with Third Eye Blind and The Goo Goo Dolls. Apparently SMCSLANG had troubles getting any photos of 3EB, and later Vanessa Carlton, who were hanging out in the same tour bus.
SMCSLANG writes, “Stephen was walking back onto the bus and I said ‘Stephen, can Vanessa come out real quick and take a pic with us?’ and he said ‘No man, no she can’t’ and that was it. So it appears to me that she’d rather get high and make out and do whatever with her boyfriend than to meet and quickly greet the people who put her where she is. Very classy Vanessa, very classy.”
After getting a bit beat up by other posters, he added, “You can tell me that them dating is a rumor, all you want, but I saw the simple fact that they were on the same bus and he reeked of pot. Sure, they’re doing their thing, and that’s fine. But don’t put her on a pedestal if she chooses to get high with her boyfriend instead of meeting a couple of fans.”
Of course it should be noted in all of his posts that Vanessa never directly said she didn’t want to meet the fan, just a security guard and Stephan Jenkins.
