Anette Olzon vs. Nightwish

Posted by NW Cro on Thursday, December 19, 2013 Under: Anette Olzon

Drama se nastavlja! Nakon što je Anette dala interview za finski časopis MENAISET, dečki odgovaraju. I dalje se radi o nepresušnoj temi raskida između Anette i benda. Što kažu jedna i druga strana pročitajte na slijedećim linkovima, pa sami prosudite:

Anette's inteview -

Sve se čini kako se Anette ozbiljno naljutila na dečke, koji su napisali kako je ovo zadnje što će komentirati na ovu temu. Donosimo prijevod poruke koju su objavili na službenoj stranici:

Welcome to the laundry room... Ho-hum

The interview of our former vocalist Anette in the Me Naiset magazine is full of twisted truths and denigration. This "one woman vs. the Neanderthals" setting is an easy to way to take advantage of our media history.

The split with Anette wasn't because of pregnancy or illness. We discovered her personality didn't fit this work community, and was even detrimental to it.

These claims we can invalidate right away:

-Claim: Moments earlier Anette had told Tuomas Holopainen of her pregnancy

-Truth: Anette told of her pregnancy to the whole band already a week earlier in Montreal. Everyone was congratulative, and Anette herself offered an option of hiring a replacement vocalist if she can't manage everything which was already agreed on. Later she took back her decision, and the difficulties really started. Fear of losing money and position seemed obvious.

-Claim: The boys of the band decided everything for me

-Truth: Neither Tuomas nor any other of the boys of the band can singlehandedly decide where we take off to and when. There have been discussions inside the band and support of people on a personal level. Also Anette. Managers and promoters discuss about possible concerts, record releases, etc., and wishes of all the band members have been taken into account. All these details have been negotiated with Anette and her manager. We have the e-mails.

To keep the touring life bearable, it's reasonable and right to make thibngs comfortable on a personal level. Based on these discussions, Anette was given liberties from interviews and fan meetings. She and her family got an own tour bus and driver in both Europe and America. The expenses were paid by the organization, not Anette or her company. Others of the band didn't use similar benefits.

-Claim: Other income went directly to the men

-Truth: Anette and her company has been paid a fifth of everything that was done during her time and with her. We have no reason to lie, because this cake has provided enough slices for us all. The finances of the band have always been handled openly, honestly and evenhandedly. The books exist. How individual members spend their share is up to their own responsibility.

We neither want to nor intend to comment this more now. Doing the laundry is tiring. Remember the help your ladies with that occasionally.
