Happy Official First Day of Fall. Like Christmas, this day comes but once a year, and like Christmas, it should be celebrated. And not just because you can finally enjoy chugging Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but because this is the best time of year for new music.
Having canceled several stops on her current tour, Vanessa Carlton has released a very personal letter detailing her recent medical struggles that caused her to lose her pregnancy. In the letter, Carlton, who only recently announced she was pregnant, says she was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy in mid-October.
The year was 2002. America was only fighting one war and Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” was the only song on the radio; Justin Bieber was seven. It was a simpler time.
