I got an e-mail earlier today, alerting me to what was going on on Twitter – so of course as soon as I got home from the office, I turned on Twitter. I was hoping to find some kind of response from Chris Young. Response to a Jo Dee Messina tweet. But as far as I can tell, Chris hasn’t said anything yet.
If you haven’t heard, here’s what’s going on. Jo Dee is kind of outspoken. If there’s something on her mind, she lets us know about it. Earlier today, Jo Dee tweeted: "OMG! Just saw @ChrisYoungMusic. He was ugly, arrogant and rude. Really country radio? This guys an ass."
Now, I know that in the past my Twitter account has been hacked. I know people got tweets they thought were from me, but they weren’t really from me. I thought that could have been the case with this tweet. But the news media is taking it seriously – and seem to be in agreement that the tweet actually came from Jo Dee.
Jo Dee even went as far as to reply to a fan who came to Chris’s defense to say just how rude he was. There has been no Twitter reply from Chris as yet but we are keeping an eye out. [Source]
I have had the pleasure of meeting Chris Young on several different occasions. I always found him to be polite, caring, understanding, and someone who really seemed to want to spend time with his fans. I’ve never met Jo Dee, but I would like to. I’ll bee seeing her in September at our Washington County Fair. I’m curious as to whether there isn’t more going on here than we know about.
What do you all think? Did Jo Dee just get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Should she have said anything on Twitter? Do you think Chris needs to respond? I like both of these artists. I’ve been enjoying their music for a long time. I’m not going to stop listening to their music, and I don’t plan on getting involved in their little – whatever it is that’s going on in Twitterland. But I would be very interested to hear what all of you have to say about all of this.
Back with more soon.
