I managed to live 35 years without knowing a good reason to be interested by Linda Ronstadt. But you may have heard she was booed off the stage and lost her gig at a Las Vegas casino for praising Michael Moore. Now I read this--she's got alot of guts. I think they call this outspoken:
"My career has befuddled other people, and it's befuddled me," admitted Ronstadt, 58, who finds her fans are polarized by her nightly on-stage salute to "Fahrenheit 9/11" filmmaker Michael Moore.Consider me converted. In fact, I might be in love. I already liked the Dixie Chicks when I found out they were against Bush too. I didn't know about Linda. Did everyone else already know about her? I must have missed it.
"I've been dedicating a song to him – I think he's a great patriot – and it splits the audience down the middle, and they duke it out," she said.
"This is an election year, and I think we're in desperate trouble and it's time for people to speak up and not pipe down. It's a real conflict for me when I go to a concert and find out somebody in the audience is a Republican or fundamental Christian. It can cloud my enjoyment. I'd rather not know."
