April 13, 2002 – Vanessa checked in with fans on her official site’s message board on Saturday where she briefly commented on some fans criticism of her performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday. Carlton wrote, “Hey, just got back from a beautiful hike with a friend and two smelly hilarious dogs. I really miss not being [able] to do a whole show. I wish I could play for at least 45 minutes. Leno was cool, but it all goes by so quick. Leno is such the friendly man. I suppose some of you guys heard my nerves. It wasn’t the best vocal I’ve ever done, but I thought it sounded cool. I really do love to sing ‘A Thousand Miles’. Can’t wait to sing acoustic on TRL. You guys make me feel like such the lucky girl. I love my fans more than anything. You guys are the reason why I do what I do. Much love and peace. Vanessa.”
