2007-05-31 pianistenvy  Update from Christine Anderson (
Hi, everybody! It's me, Christine Anderson (Pianist Envy), and I just wanted to apologize to my fans for not being on the site as much as you would obviously like. These last two weeks have been super busy for me with all the studio time I've been putting in on my new album, so I haven't had time to keep up with all the goings-on here on the WMBW. I finally got a chance to catch up on everything last night, and I just wanted to say a couple things to my fans here before you guys start a riot. ~*lol*~

First of all, THANK YOU so much for all your support, in both this competition and the musical world. I've been making so many new friends and fans here, and I am selling a ton of CDs, so that is great! Thank you! Secondly, I know there are quite a few of you who got together over the Holiday weekend (Memorial Day here in the USA) to vote for me while I was in the studio recording. I know you took time out of your days to sit there and vote to boost my score, and I want you to know how much I appreciate your hard work and dedication. Now, I realize there has been a bit of an outcry about the 'down-voting' that happens here, but believe me, it happens to everyone, not just me. There are beautiful women on this site who are rated at 13 point something, so that should tell you right there that I'm not the only one who gets knocked down.

This may be the first beauty pageant I've entered, but it's not the first time I've experienced down voting or its equivalent. Any time you get a group of people together, there are going to be clashes in personalities, jealousies, judgemental comments, you name it. That's just human nature. It is my hope that we can rise above these things, but calling people out and complaining about it doesn't help, it only makes the down-voters feel like they're accomplishing something when they really aren't.

No matter what, you guys, I just want you to have fun here on the WMBW. That's all I'm doing and I'm having a fantastic experience!! God has blessed us with beauty, so we should spread it around. Send each other flowers and words of encouragement. Contestants, you have the power to vote, too. Not for yourself, apparently, but still, you can vote for each other. Why not vote '20' for every model you admire and not vote anything for the ones you don't? That way you are spreading purely positive energy around, and I for one believe that to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction... meaning simply that if you put out the good stuff, you'll get the good stuff back.

I love you guys, and I really hope we can all come together and unite as sisters in peace and beauty! I think it is so important for us, as women, to embrace one another and lift one another up. Let's show the world how we want to be treated by treating one another with the same respect we want the world to show us. Beautiful Women of the World, Unite!

With Love & Hope & Music,

Christine Anderson
