Managed to catch the Fox & Friends appearance just now. Jewel was only on for about 5-6 minutes, and they ran through the harrassment at aged 8, the motivations for the new album, and her family's show up in Alaska. They gave a quick plug for the CD and book, but it was pretty brief, all things considered.

Thanks for the rundown, Simon!!

:bump:

She's on Fox & Friends tomorrow morning! Hopefully there'll be video put up afterword. :)

Yeah, I'm not watching this tripe just to catch a five minute Jewel spot!  Even I have my limits :lol:

I don't even know what this is, and as a result, I don't know if this is the right thread. Like, email questions or a live chat, or an actual appearance?

Did any of you read the above article and then read the comments below it? Some Jewel disbelievers, that's for sure. Not saying they are right, (certainly not about her family being rich) but it makes for an interesting read, especially Paz Thibodeaux who claims to have gone to school with Jewel.





BUT



This Paz person isn't the first one to say that.

6 Inspiring Rags to Riches Stories (That Are Bullshit)


#4. Jewel

The Rags to Riches Story:

Jewel lived in a van!

Jewel lived in a van!!

Jewel lived in a van!!!!!!

This line is shouted in every single story ever written about Jewel. And just in case that doesn't melt your frozen heart, the van story is almost always followed up with the fact that her family was so poor growing up that they didn't have running water.

Why it's a Load of Crap:

First, the stuff about her childhood. Her family didn't go without running water because they were poor. Jewel's father elected to drop out of society to live of the land, and settled in Alaska to do so. They were hippies, not hobos. Jewel's upbringing was unconventional, sure, but at least she didn't grow up in homeless shelters like true badasses such as KRS One, Tupac Shakur and ... Shania Twain.

Later, Jewel followed in her father's footsteps, choosing to quit work and live in a van to keep costs down and focus on her music. Ballsy? Sure, but all musicians live in their car for a while. Legally, you're not allowed to call yourself a musician unless you've got some sort of transient-living under your belt.

Again, we're not just talking about hard asses like Kurt Cobain, whose biography includes a spell camping out under a bridge. Creed lead "singer" Scott Stapp and Matchbox 20 front"man" Rob Thomas lived in their cars while pursuing the dream.

Don't take our word for it, take it from those celebrated rock and roll historians, Boston:

Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road to try to make ends meet
Playing all the bars, sleeping in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street

Sleeping in a car is rock and roll! And she had a van; hell, that's a freaking mansion in the struggling musician world.

So common is the van in rock and roll, that there is a website dedicated to giving the van dwellers of rock an occasional couch to sleep on (at BetterThanTheVan.com).

So why don't we hear about Scott Stapp, Rob Thomas and Shania Twain's hard ass upbringings as much as Jewel's? Well, it would seem that Jewel's tale of unprecedented hardship might be part of a calculated PR strategy. For instance, if you're tired of the van story, her online bios will have you know that she also "washed her hair in public restrooms, subsisted on carrots and peanut butter, fell in with street gangs, dated older men and even shoplifted." Come on guys. This isn't high school, it's rock and roll. If you're going to be the bad girl, you're going to have to give us something a little worse than "dating older men," and a little less hilariously far-fetched than "gang involvement." Stevie Nix's PR team should have some suggestions.

 :grumpy:

HEY!!!!

 :wtf2: Did Stevie Nicks do to this guy? :ragecomp:  Leave The Stevie alone.

Side note:  I kind of agree that most of her life, was an option.  And her family has to have some dough from ATLF.  It doesn't take anything away from the music, artistry, difficulty or pain.

P sure the guy who's there pitching his songwriting did the same thing to Mary J Blige before this.

I wouldn't doubt it. Those people were probably meant to stay in the audience most of the time. But at least those questions were better than the typical ones you hear all the time, so there's that. :)

Didn't Jewel once say that she took a bunch of advice from Poltz specifically to get discovered?  Wasn't that the point of the weekly show at the Innerchange? Lately she's saying she never wanted to be discovered - it was just a happy accident.

See, I think this is another story shift...
