Media;=)

Well, good evening;=)

Finnish media is just wonderful;=) They read my blog, take something out if its context and put in the headlines. Well, I am not surprised.

From now on I guess I need to explain all the time when I am joking or having any irony in my blog so they understand;=)

I am not totally beaten down from motherhood as they say and love being a mum. But as any parents of babies know (hopefully someone in Iltalehti too) it can be sleepless nights and tired eyes in mums and dads. But for that, I am not totally beaten down as you in here all know;=)

But I guess I cant post any more fun looking "tired" photos anymore, so lets keep the blog fresh and with lots of happy faces so no one can misunderstand things.

Here´s some photos of me today with my new hair colour and a freshness in my face;=)
Sleep well everyone (I will)!

  1. LI love your hair, you look younger and more fresh :) Maybe they'll begin to write about your visits to the hair salon as well... Hmmm. xD

  2. God!! So many annoying people out there... ¬¬
    But dont pay much attention to that.
    Though sometimes they confuse people who are really interested in things related to you and the band. Maybe you remember that I told you that here in Spain some people published in a magazine things that you said were completely false... Anyways... do whatever you want, be you and thats all ;)
    kisses Anette! and good night!

  3. Good night Anette! Hope Nemo sleep all night long and let you and your partner sleep too =)

    I don't know if I will sleep... 'cause of college exams... D:

    Haha, well, in conclussion: post whatever you want in your blog 'cause it is your blog! Don't care about what other people say. You know you are happy, a little bit tired but happy, so doesn't have to take any sense for you what Finnish media say =)

  4. Dearest Anette,

    Good evening, and I am sorry to hear that the Media is publishing the information you share in a colored view. It’s the same as the reporters who receive a response to one of their inquires that has multiple views and an explanation, but they choose to only publish one piece of it and pretend the rest of it, including the reasoning, doesn’t exist. I am sure this must be very unpleasant for you, for the despite the fact that it comes with the territory of being a celebrity, that doesn’t make it right, and let alone true. But, as you said, we of course completely understand that you adore being a Mother, and that you are simply playing around with the tired times and expressing yourself. Of course parents, especially parents with young children will be tired at times, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t enjoying their parenthood or that is it too much for them.

    I never was beneath the impression for a second that you actually felt overwhelmed or anything of the sort. Simply that you were experiencing some less restful times and felt a bit drained. Nothing more :). Anyway, regarding the pictures, you look stunningly beautiful and very fresh and glowing :). Your hair looks wonderful being inky black once more.

    Well, I pray you also sleep well this evening and that you have a beautiful day tomorrow.

    With much love and warm wishes,
    Alexstrasza

  5. Gorgeus, Amazing and super beautiful, I like your hair on that style.

    are you going to use that hair in a promo pics for the new album?

    That could be marvelous...!!!

    Greetings and hugs from méxico

  6. Yeah, we clearly can see the freshness of your face LOL haha it's obvious, i don't have any kids but i consider that being a mom is the hardest job in the world and they should support you! Keep doing what you want Nettie, don't ask to anyone if you can do this or that.

    Regards =) You look amazing! Even in the "tired" photos.

  7. Hi Anette,
    Too bad the media couldn't take photos from your blog and say positive things...like what a great Mom you are...talented...etc. Your hair looks fantastic...You look like you're ready to rock!!!
    Hope you slept well!!

    Take care!

  8. Clearly they were just desperate for a story, so don’t take it to heart. Keep posting fun pictures if you like. I think most people discerning enough to know when you are joking and that you clearly love having Nemo very much. Sleep well ;-P

    Hugs

  9. The media are so good at taking a genuine piece of information and twisting it to make it sound so awful! It's rather sad they have to do that, all they have to do is read through some of your other posts and realise you are normally always fresh and happy and bubbly!

    Anyway, your hair looks amazing! Very rock-chick. I think the black looks great with the fringe, =). And I also adore you jacket, I want one!

    Goodnight and take care,
    Jasmine.

  10. This look reminds me japanese visual K ! great job!

  11. Ha your hair looks great. And perhaps someday the person who wrote that article will have children and then feel like a moron :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Uau! I knew media had some very strong predators, but going after you? You're not one of those Pop stars paparazzis chase... That was just mean and awful and just shows how media can be...

    Hope you're ok and recovering from a NORMAL motherhood (and I highlight the "normal" which I understand instead of those media guys)

    Stay well,
    Hugs n' kisses *

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would be hugely suspicious of you if you were all perky and "happy happy joy joy" all the time and leading everyone to believe you don't suffer from fatigue and sleepless nights like normal moms of infants.

    You gave us a little example of your reality and and I thought that was fantastic of you - it was honest and real and human. I appreciated it.

    Too bad some "media" couldn't see that for what it was, Anette.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Stupid, I think it was pretty clear you were joking. But I guess they just need something to write about and can't be bothered to actually, you know, do research and stuff.

    Anyway, I think black looks better than brown. I like your new haircut as well. I was pretty skeptical about the bangs at first, but the way your hair is now looks really good on you.

    ReplyDelete
  15. sleep well Anette :), you look beautiful in those pictures :D, and yes you look much more younger, and that black hair makes that your skin highlight n.n, i wish to dye mi hair like yours, goodnight & take care

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is unfortunate that the media would do that. But they will always take any opportunity to turn out a story for the sake of having one.

    I think your blog keeps it real, and that is refreshing. Hopefully the people who read the article, don't believe everything they read and I hope it doesn't discourage you to write here on occasion. It is very nice to be able to say "hello!"

    ReplyDelete
  17. Media will always be media -_-. Especially with the new album coming this year, the media will begin circling around you and Nightwish again. But you look great in these pictures anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Media can be so ridiculous! This is why I never pay attention to articles like that. Please don't let them get you down. I'm not a mother, but can still completely understand how you would be tired on occasion. It never crossed my mind that you were beaten down from motherhood.

    You look great, by the way, and I love the new hair style. I really enjoy reading your blog :) Thanks for being so great with your fans!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Great hair <3
    Oh, these days I've been trying to sing Nightwish songs that you sing. Only trying, doesn't mean I'm doing it well o_o'
    Good luck with Nemo. Bye bye!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry I can't read the article, not in english. You should not change what you write, if you do they win. They have nothing to write about so they take something from your blog and make lies because they are jerks and want people to read the article. The more people that read the articles the more they can make from advertisments. Just ignore it, hopefully this helps.. Have a great day.

  21. Hey,Nette

    These comments are really boring.
    The you hair is beautiful!!!But,please,let you hair get long and straight!

    Good Night!!

  22. Anette,

    Tabloids/media rarely ever post what's the truth and I guess it happens everyone you go! It can be such a pain in the ass but don't let it get you down. They'll always write whatever they can for money!

    Love the air by the way! Looks awesome! :D
    Hope the rest of your night goes great!

    Take care,

  23. Anette I really like the new haircut, and honestly I think the only way that anyone could have taken those posts out of context was if they purposefully misunderstood what you posted. I've never had kids, but I just have to listen to my friends that at have them to sense the time commitment it entails and learn about all their sleepless nights.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love, love, love the hair =D
    and the jacket looks really nice too.
    The media can be so annoying and nosy :-/
    Well have a nice day tomorrow, goodnight.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't care what a magazine says about you, magazines are stupid and always get things wrong.

    You are an awesome singer and probably a fantastic mom. <3

    Love your hair!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorgeous hair Anette!
    and ughhh media is SO stupid sometimes. :P

    ReplyDelete
  27. Paparazzi would do anything just so they can manage to get to the top even by hurting someone...Not many people would put their pics without make up..But you are natural and I love you on the way you are. You put pics when you are happy..sad...tired...and you do not hide it with make up. You do not have to care for those annoying people...
    Btw..you look really cute on the pictures especially on the sedond one and the hair color is perfect!
    Thanks for the pics.

    Here's a song from PAIN - Don't Care

    Big hugs to you and the boys

  28. Hi Anette! I´m a mum of two small kids. My youngest is now 1 year and 3 months and I know exactly why you wanted to post your pictures. We mums need to express our feelings sometimes and good that you did. Of course we are plessed to be a parent but hey... life with the baby is also hard sometimes. Thank you very much for your blog and don´t mind about the press. The different experiences in ones live shows the way to intepret songs and performance on stage, in a positive way, I think :) Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hih, yesterday I was reading your blog and after that I checked Iltalehti's newest news. I saw the news about you and I was like "Whaaat I just saw that pic :----D". Media always do things like that, but that was just stupid :-p

    Oh I really love the third pic :--) Ur jacket looks good c-:

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah. ;-(

    I must say, this Iltalehti is more and more like "Se & hör", if that's the name of the magasine in Sweden... I've sent them feedback plenty of times, because they spread rumours and assumptions that are not true at all, without checking the facts! Even when something tragical has happened... Ok, they've been quick to edit their articles when they get feedback so that might be a good thing.. And when there's nothing tragical at the moment, they read normal (but famous) people's normal blogs about normal things and try to make it seem like a big crisis or something! =o)

    I don't like them doing the same to you, and I'll surely let them know if they write garbage about you...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hey, just wanted to say I'm your new reader. From Finland. :) (I write in finnish though) Have a nice day. And hey, dark hair suits you the best, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You look amazing!!! And you do the right thing not listening to those people. They don't know you and people who do, know, that those headlines are false!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Anette! I happened just read on version of that story you mentioned in mtv3 homepage. Most people that have left their comments are criticizing the story commenting things like "is this really newsworthy ? It´s quite normal that parents of little children have too little sleep and are tired and pointing out that so called "famous people" are suprisingly just normal people with same problems than rest of us ;0)

    Most magazines want for example singer in heavy rock band to act, dress and have the image that is expected. God forbid if you dare to be yourself and break the mold.Don´t let them tell you how to live your life and how to write your blog and just be you - the Anette we know and love!

  34. Ha, good morning Anette:)
    Got to be careful with media they can really get things twisted if they want to, and chances are that they DO NOT CARE who they destroy or try to. They can be heartless character assassins given but half the opportunity ...Britney Spears comes to mind. She's an extreme case of but .....please please be careful anyway!

    Thanks for the Photos, foxy!!!
    Have the best day possible, and enjoy!
    lots of love

  35. To hell with the media Anette! The proof that you are not a beaten down mother is here in the blog itself. They obviously read only one entry! You are cheery and adorable, and have spare time to post photos, fashion, family, fitness etc. Your posts are detailed and for heaven's sake you even cook, post pic of the food and give us the recipe. Finnish media is rewarding their blind journalists with blindfolds!

    I'm sorry the media causes you so much grief. We love you tho!

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOL! This was obviously written by a man, or someone who has never had children. I personally loved the photos. It showed us that you are a normal human being - just like the rest of us. If i was you i'd take no notice and write what you want to. It's your blog after all! Lots of love xxx.

  37. i like your hair style,my hair style looks like you and i am glad!kisses and good night!

  38. Hej Anette

    Grrrr, i hate when some "journalists" are doing this kind of thing, i'm sorry for you (and for their moronic intelligence as well, since they couldn't understand when you're not serious)...
    Lovely thoughts for you, and a big hug as well. <3

  39. Good morning Anette,
    what is talking about the article? Sorry but i don't understand finnish. Anyway i think that you are free to write whatever thing you want without accountability to nobody (i hope it's a right word :)).

    Don't care about them and stop!

    About the pics... your look is so great!

    Have a nice day!

    Big hugs

    ReplyDelete
  40. Come one, they're stupid >_< Of course being a mum is not just making your baby smile and laugh all day long, and watch him sleep and say your colleagues that he is the best thing in the world. All of that are real, of course, but like every baby, he makes his parents look like zombies sometimes, and god, that's normal!!
    I liked the pic on which you're lying down, the face hidden by a baby book. Please don't stop, it would be unfair ;-)

    All the best!

  41. There are people who do not bother about reality and rely on articles like that. It must be annoying... but hey, we are here for you!! ;-)

    Your hair looks great in black although I liked the not-so-black version as well. :-)
    Have a nice day.

  42. One question: Iltalehti is a finnish newspaper?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi Anette !!

    You have a sooo rocky style in this photos !! Love it ! =)

    Have a nice day !!

    ReplyDelete
  44. good morning, Anette, and I gotta say you look great in this style! jet-black hair and black eyeliner and nude lipgloss, it just makes you look so "metallic" and edgy in a good way. You should use this look more often, it flatters you so well.

    And dont worry about the media-people, they'll always look for headlines and shock-news, messing with people's words. I'm sure the blog readers and anyone who'd read your original entry would realize that you didn't mean it seriously, though.

    have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  45. You are just gorgeous! *__* I think all moms with little babies must look up at you ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Anette
    Well,I couldn't read the article,since I do not read/speak a single word in finnish,but anyway it seems like they did a headline about you bein'beaten down,makin' motherhood looks bad,oh come on press give us a break! =O
    Nemo is a bless! and I'm pretty sure you do not regret a single sleepless night.
    Do not stop sharin' your everyday photos in here,as I said before,it makes us feel part of NW crew.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Anette First of all i just want to say that you look gorgeous! You are a ROCK CHIC!! :))))

    As for the media well they are always desperate for story's & they always twist things but its like everything else you have to take the good with he bad but its really "sad" of them to try to make you look like a tired mother who cant cope! I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY IN BIG LETTERS THAT I THINK YOUR AMAZING! YOUR A VERY STRONG LADY FOR ALL OF US TO LOOK UP TO! ITS ABOUT TIME SOME PEOPLE SAID HOW TOUGH IT MUST HAVE BEEN FOR YOU IN THE BEGINNING OF NW & HAVING TO GO ON TOUR WHILST MISSING YOUR SON IN THE EARLY DAYS & THEN THE SAME WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO ON TOUR AGAIN! YOU HAVE FOUND A BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE (its seems to me) THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE MANAGE TO ACHIEVE! YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO BE PROUD OF!! SO SCREW THE NEGATIVE PRESS!!! BET THEY WOULD NOT STICK THIS IN THE PAPER WOULD THEY...NO WHY COS ITS THE TRUTH!! ANETTE OLZON IS AN INSPIRATION & THATS WHY WE VISIT YOUR BLOG EVERY DAY! YOU ARE BRAVE & YOU HAVE FOLLOWED YOUR HEART NO MATTER HOW AFRAID YOU MUST HAVE BEEN...WHY DO THEY FORGET THAT SO SOON & PICK ON YOU FOR SOMETHING SO STUPID & BELOW THE BELT!!! LIKE I SAID SCREW THEM!!! :DDDDD

    Anyway anybody who would visit your blog will see the truth so if people see those pictures or media they may check out your blog & see for themselves that your are doing fine! The fact that you post up these funny tired photos just shows how down to earth honest & true to yourself & honest with us that you are!!!!! Thats why we love you hun so just ignore this stupid rubbish!

    love you kisses

    you are a wonderful person and mother. You touch people's souls and brighten their days with your smile. Never forget that. Tabloids are crap. You're beyond all that.

  50. Hi Anette

    I'm so sorry for what happened. I just HATE that kind of things about the media, they love messing around with anything rather than do their real job, to write about the present day news around the world. But they love to get involved in lies or gossips, so just ignore them :)

    By the way, new photos of your hair: just GREAT!!!! :D

    We all love you, we're always here with you :)
    With a big hug, César

    P.S. Congrats for having a big amount of new readers! Welcome folks!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yeah, I read the article on Iltalehti's web page and it made so laugh :D What news is that? When you're having a baby, of course you will have sleepless nights and you are tired. And this is what Iltalehti wanted everyone to know... :D I can do nothing but laugh at the magazine.
    I wonder when will they tell about my tiredness and sleepless night to everyone because I have them too... you know, a studen't life is not just about parties.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Not really sure what this media thing is about but it sounds like the usual stupid 'blown out of proportion' nonsense they love to sell so much.

    Just finished reading the biography 'Once Upon A Nightwish' and it's nice to hear the truth about things! which is one of the reasons I love your blog! On the plus side though it sounds like it has gotten a fair few new readers for your blog so anything the media have said can now be set straight by people reading things straight from you, I was never aware it was a crime for a mother with a newborn baby to be tired!


    By the way, your new hair is AWESOME.



    Best wishes, Aj xxx

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh wow! That is TOTALLY taking things out of context. Why is it even a 'news' story? :-s

    I think it was brave and wonderful of you to show that photo, even in good humour. It shows how down to earth and natural you are. Women can be so afraid to show a photograph of them without make-up or not looking perfect. You're a brilliant role model.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great pictures. Love the colour of your hair. <3

    It is always the same with the media. They are "hungry" to get interesting stories and since you are going to release the new album this year they are even more hungry for every kind of news. Especially the Finnish media because Nightwish is a Finnish band (with you, the singer from Sweden). Just try to ignore the dear media. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Media wrrrrrrrr...
    It's your blog and you can post any pictures you want to, even tired and so on. Media wants a sensation, so let the sensation will be how many people love you and your blog :) It's a huge think that someone famous what to share her everyday life with funs.
    And you look so wonderful in this black hair! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh darling, you look amazing! ♥ And it's good you don't take media so seriously - as you can see, they just try to get as much readers as they get and get shocking article out of something normal.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just ignore them, you're better than that. All of us know you're just fine being you.

    I LOVE your jacket by the way. I've been trying to find a semi-military, cute fitting jacket for ages. Do you know of any that aren't super expensive? College student here. =P

    Keep that beautiful chin up! <3

    (whaouah I'm proud of myself, I have eventually figured out how to post a comment in here, I have bought a brain :p)
    Your hair look really nice, I like when they are very dark like that !
    Are they naturally smooth or do you use some product to smooth them ? I have used many many products to keep my own hair smooth but no one worked :(
    Love

  63. Media is lame, just looking to stir things up, not actually reporting any kind of truth. Your fans won't fall for that.

    I like the look, your hair is very metal!

  64. I love your new hair, it's awesome!! :)

    And about the media.. I think that they just search for something that they can turn to something you didn't say.. They're so evil -.-'

    And I don't think I will sleep well.. I always go to bed late.. or if I go earlier i can't fall asleep until midnight... And I have to wake up for school at 6.. It's horrible -.-''

    I hope you'll sleep well tonight.. :) ♥

  65. Ah, the lovely Finnish media...Iltalehti is one of the worst magazines around here, I never believe anything what is written there. That is, when I even bother to read it in the first place, which is very rarely. :D

    Just keep posting whatever you like in here and don't care about the media. No matter what you do they will misunderstand you as soon as that misunderstanding serves their evil purposes.

    And like you already noticed, their "so called news" wasn't all bad; you gained many new readers for your blog because of that. Every dark cloud has a silver lining. :)

  66. Hej Anette!
    Haha kul o se att du kan ta den finska median för vad den är; ett skämt. Det tycks alltför ofta vara brist på riktiga saker att skriva om så då blir det såhär ;)Måste ha varit värsta chocken då du började.. Fortsätt som du gör o bry dej inte om dem! (Hoppas det är okej med kommentarer på svenska här? Men det är så sällan man kan använda sig av svenskan ute på nätet speciellt när det gäller musik och favoritband osv =) )
    Men jag önskar dej allt bra och njut av livet med den lilla!
    ps. bilderna är super =)
