Vanessa Carlton On Her Jewish Ethnicity And Relationship With Mom

Vanessa Carlton rose to stardom two decades ago. However, to date, she is still prominent in the music industry.

She started singing and making music at a young age —  something she has not given up to date. Over the years, Carlton’s life had many ups and downs.

But she never gave up and strived to be the best. And now, she has a net worth of $10 million as of 2022. 

In retrospect, Carlton would not have gained massive success without her mother, Heidi Lee. Lee recognized her daughter’s talents and passion for music from a young age and tutored her accordingly.

Because of her mother’s constant support, ‘The Thousand Miles’ singer has been able to become the icon she is today.

Vanessa Carlton’s bio and ethnicity

Carlton was born on August 16, 1980, in Milford, Pennsylvania. As of 2022, her age is 40.

She was born the first of three children to parents Edmund and Lee. Edmund was a pilot, whereas Lee was a pianist and school music teacher.

Talking about nationality and ethnicity, Carlton is American and mixed, respectively. Her father is of Norwegian and Swedish descent. 

Similarly, her mother is Jewish, descended from Russian Jews. But at the time of Carlton’s birth, Lee was raised in a Jewish family in Queens, New York. 

In an interview with Teen Music, Carlton mentioned that she was Half Scandinavian and Half Russian.

As said before, the singer’s fascination with music began at a young age. Lee played classical pieces on the piano while pregnant with the singer. 

She said, “A Bach piece, a Mozart sonata. And she heard it.” After Carlton was born, she grew interested in music and was tutored by her mother —  especially in classical music.

Because of this, she developed a strong interest in ballet. She joined the School of American Ballet when she was 14 years old, in 1994.

Following graduation, she began to sing vocally at local nightclubs, becoming more comfortable and active on stage. She eventually relocated to New York City, where she attended Columbia University for a year before dropping out. 

While working as a waitress, Carlton met songwriter/producer Peter Zizzo who invited her to his studio to record a demo. And the rest is history.

Vanessa Carlton’s relationship with her mother

While Carlton came into the limelight in 2002 with ‘The Thousand Miles,’ life was not easy for her. After a couple of years of fame, she was emotionally and physically tired.

She told Spin Magazine she did not know what she was doing, and things quickly went out of hand. To make matters worse, she took a lot of alcohol and pills.

This affected her relationship with her family, with whom she had separate problems. At that time, she had not spoken with her mom for a couple of years. 

In a 2018 interview with Lenny Letter, Carlton talked about the mother-daughter hardship. The singer admitted that Lee was a great piano teacher who did not care about little things.

For instance, Lee only cared about how the overall piece sounded rather than Carlton’s small mistakes while playing.

She added, “You play, you make a mistake, you keep going. I would improvise on some Mozart sonatas, or a Greek piece, taking it to another place entirely, and she would never correct me.”

Carlton said that this behavior of her mother was “super-important” because it gave her creative freedom from a young age. “So, in that way, I think she had a profound impact on my creative life,” she explained.

Unfortunately, things were not always good for the pair. Lee was “incredibly intense and very stubborn,” which created a rift between the two. 

Fortunately, when Carlton became a mother, she could empathize with Lee and adore her.

She said, “She set up this amazing life for herself and her kids as a working mother. She’s very progressive. I agree with a lot of now that I’m a mother. But it took me some time to get here.”

Madi Monroe Seemingly Leaks Ex Boyfriend Nick Machat’s Text Messages

It has been months since Madi Monroe and Nick Machat break up. The two were together for almost a year before the two parted ways.

The break up was ugly since Machat had been cheating on Monroe, and the latter called him out. Initially, Monroe supported Machat and exposed other girls he had been with.

But after Monroe saw the DM and text messages leaks that were done by the girls Machat tried to hook up with, she called it quits. She is in a loving relationship with her current boyfriend, Matthew Rossi.

However, it seems like Machat is still not over Monroe as he constantly sends her DM and text messages. Monroe leaked all of them on TikTok and exposed her former boyfriend.

Madi Monroe leaks Nick Machat’s text messages

On January 13, 2023, Monroe took to TikTok to show the text messages Machat had sent her. She exposed him and revealed that he was still sending her DM after their break up. 

The TikTok was a compilation of photos where the text messages alternated with a picture of Monroe. She wrote, “just keep loving” on her photos as well as the caption of the TikTok.

The first of the leaks showed Machat being fatphobic to Monroe. He asked her if she went shopping in the “xl section of amazon.”

He said her jeans looked like they were meant for a whale and asked her not to wear “fat people clothes.” Monroe told him not to be mean and that his words hurt her.

However, Machat did not care for her sentiments and continued to fat-shame her. In another DM, he slut-shamed her.

Monroe exposed another text message where she confessed how he scared her. She told him she wanted to sleep and was scared of him.

Machat, on the other hand, told her, “don’t do this to me.” In a Snapchat DM, he called her pathetic.

In the last text message, Machat brought up Cooper Noriega and called him a “bum friend.” Monroe told him she never wanted to see her again and asked him to leave.

Machat called it her loss and said she would end up dying like Noriega. Noriega was a friend of Monroe who was found dead in a parking lot in Burbank, California, on June 9, 2022.

His cause of death was determined six months later. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed that his death was accidental.

It was reported that he died because of the combined effect of fentanyl, lorazepam, alprazolam, also known as Xanax, and clonazepam.

Netizens took to TikTok and Instagram to call out Machat for his behavior. They called him toxic for not leaving Monroe alone even though she was in a happy relationship. 

At the time of writing, Machat has not responded to his being exposed and leaks.

Zara Larsson’s Twitter Beef with Selena Gomez Stan Ronnie Explained

Zara Larsson has a massive stan for Harry. In 2018, a beef between Harry and Zara hater Ronnie got viral. Zara Larsson even reacted to the video.  

As Zara’s new single ‘Can’t Tame Her’ is coming this month, the feud has resumed as Zara and Ronnie both reacted following Harry’s popularity after rapping in front of Lea Michele.

Who is Zara Larsson?

Zara was born on December 16, 1997, in Stockholm, Sweden, to Agnetha and Anders Larsson. Swedish singer-songwriter Zara is well-known for her electro-pop music. She has a younger sister, Hanna Larsson. Hanna and Zara grew up singing and performing together.

Zara was asked to enroll at Adolf Fredrik’s Music School but declined because she preferred to pursue a solo career rather than singing in a choir.

She hasn’t actually had any formal vocal training. She trained herself by listening to popular artists like Beyonce, whom she also considers her role model.

Zara joined the Swedish edition of the talent competition show Got Talent at the age of 10 in 2008. Thereafter, she signed a recording contract with the company TEN Music Group after achieving widespread popularity, and in 2013, her debut EP, named Introducing was released.

On October 1, 2014, her debut album, which featured 14 songs, including her biggest hit, ‘Uncover,’ was released. The songs ‘Carry You Home’ and ‘Rooftop’ were released after the album’s first single, ‘Bad Boys,’ on October 13, 2013.

Her second studio album, So Good, has reached the seventh position on the UK Albums Chart since its release in March 2017, with her singles ‘Uncover’ and ‘Lush Life’ being certified platinum by Universal Music Sweden.

How did the beef start?

A video went viral in around 2018 where two guys, Harry and Ronnie were seen arguing claiming themselves fans of Zara and Selena Gomez, respectively, while the former stood for Zara and called the singer a “Nigerian woman of color.”

Zara tweeted, sharing the same video with the caption, “This Nigerian woman agrees.”

“After all these years, you can’t stop mentioning me?” My second stan, I fear,” Zara wrote back in response to Ronnie’s comment.

People, however, love the ongoing beef between Zara and Ronnie. One user said, “I love the Zara Larsson and Ronnie beef,” while another called Ronnie a “Twitter jobless misogynist.”

Similarly, another user went on to say, “Zara Larsson beefing with Ronnie before her single release that career is 6ft under”

It is yet to see how long this feud will continue. Nevertheless, some people are enjoying the Twitter beef currently going on.
