Vanessa Carlton spoke with Michael Parillo of Women.com. When asked why she chose to cover ‘Paint It Black’ by the Rolling Stones on her debut album ‘Be Not Nobody’ she said, “It depends on the song. I’m not a huge Stones fan. I love that song because it’s creepy. I love it when things scare me. The melody is kind of Middle Eastern and really unique. I knew I’d have a perception of it that’s all my own. I think that’s the only way you get permission to do a cover — if you really do a different take on a song.” The interview at ivillage.com has since been removed.
