IN DEFENSE OF JESSICA SIERRA
If we can all settle down for a moment...
I haven't had much of a moment to post, since I've been responding to all the posts on various forums that have been quoting (and often MIS-quoting) various things that Jessica Sierra said in the panel discussion. I have been on so many forums trying to defend and help sort out what Jessica said, that I'm literally exhausted! There have been discussions on TWOP, Vote for the Worst, Gray Charles, Carriefans, Katharinefans, AceYoung.net, any number of Constantine websites, and so many others. And most of it has ranged from goofiness to outright malicious ridiculousness.
I was just about to write a post in defense of Jessica and how many of you out there have been mis-representing her and unfairly accusing her of certain things (ahem, Carriefans???), but before I could get down to it, lo and behold Jessica posted a comment on my last post and on her Myspace bulletins that say it just as well or better than I ever would have. Here's what she wrote:
Hello everyone !!!! My name is Jessica Sierra you probably know me me since ur all talking about me. I want to clarify some things; I first want to say that I have no problem with Carrie and support her album and I own it, I also want to clear up any misconceptions that were taken from the interview. I simply stated that it will be interesting to see how well her career goes, just like everyone else who has won American Idol. I'm far from jealous of anybody that has been on American Idol and support all of their careers, personal opinions aside.
I hope this will put all the Carrie vs. Jessica or whoever vs. Jessica conflict to rest. I'm almost sorry I posted the transcript of the panel discussion, because I never meant for it to cause this much disruption, but I thought there was good information in there.
Tomorrow night, more on the concert, as we get back to having fun!
