(avatar by eskoplja) What's your point of view?
Last 22 november Anette received a particular comment on her blog by the name Lelayna, you may have noticed it.
Anette published it and those lines gave origin to a fans discussion. I already showed my support to Anette with my comment in her off blog:
A pair of positive eyes
i totally understand your point.
First i wanna thank you for the nice report you made about the dome. Nobody do that..I know, i know someone thinks there's no use out there...but on the contrary I/we really appreciate your semplicity, i told you so many times...we are part of it because you make it possible.Thank you.
I can see you with a pair of positive eyes, because i feel that you are able to give it as you receive it. that is the wonderful thing.
Of course, we can share smth or not, it depends on us, if we feel like or not.
We are free. But if this happens...well wow!!! Even the darkest day will turn into shiny.
Now, everyone has his own place in life, his very personal mission. You have your own mission in Nightwish and as Anette the vocalist beside this group, you were given a mission in your family, etc...
About you in the home-made phone photos: I personally love them;o) because it feels like home, it feels like normal life, it can't be fake..I really love when you upload those pics of you because it's like to meet you and listen to a beautiful story - cinderella.
I know if this happened to you, dear, it can happen to us all;=)) and you were the first who told this, do you remember honey??
I still believe!
In that way i will never see you as an idol(as you say on interviews this is so weird experience but this happens in our society) but as a "storyteller", a positive messenger of hope. I am even more interested in you before Nightwish, I feel i am interested in Anette;=) Anette= how a dream comes true
...anette at school, anette in the swimming pool, anette eating...anette running....haha yes!
Will you upload some more old pics of you so? ;)
Leopard or Zebra...
It will be fabolous leopard or maybe zebra or tiger decoration in my fab bag, but i'm sure one day i'll get mine as well:=) ;=)
Also, referring to your post-i would ask you this question so...
"If I could give you an advice today, which field would you be interested in?" "

I wanted to tell you why I can't support you any more.
..do you think that anyone will be reading your blog, if you were not NW's lead singer? I'm sorry to be blant, but do you believe you are that interesting on your own? And it is really a sad thing that now when NW are going for a media silence, people who always are hungry for news about NW - will have mainly your blog. Sadly for two years NW will be associated with shopping and spa.
Anette, sadly, this is the image that you have build for yourself - with you constant talking about clothes, every report about going to the gym, every visit to a restorant etc. You are like the total opposite of NW, being drowned so much into the material world.
Are you aware how UNPROFESSIONAL you look when you talk about the working process in connection to you new album? For God's sake, you are like a factory for songs! One song per day! It really seams that your album can be ready for like a month! (READ THE FULL lelayna COMMENT HERE)

lelayna: I do publish comments here that are not rude or insulting me or anyone around me. I can take critique if its written in a nice manner. You have every right to say what you feel, but remember: there are no "rules" in how to be the singer in a band, writing an album, liking fashion or not. Have a nice day;=)
Anette: I know there are not rules, and actually I didn't suggest that. Still I think that you should pay more attention how your actions affect NW, and maybe try to be more considerate. There are certainly not rules, I know, but still I think it's basic that people should accept you as a serious and professional person, especially when you are in a band with established reputation as Nightwish, for which they have worked for so long.
