PINK FIGHTS FOR FREE SPEECH

Apparently, Pink's Dear Mr President has gotten a Florida schoolgirl into trouble. No, not that sort of trouble, political trouble:

"A 10-year-old South Florida girl was banned from singing it in her school talent show, so it's a civil-liberties issue now. I've had a great reaction to that song."

It's like the great protests of the Civil Rights movement, isn't it? We wonder if a militant group will form around her, calling themselves them, um, Pink Panthers. Maybe not.

Pink is also taking on climate change:

"The climate today is very hush-hush, very PC, very 'Don't talk about this, don't talk about that, don't think, don't contribute, it's not sexy, let's go with the whole escapism thing, it's working'."

"Several people are out there doing wonderful things, but you have to Google them. They're not on the covers of the tabloids for these things - only if they're in the middle of a divorce do you hear about their foundations."


It's great to hear that Pink is worried about the greenhouse effect - maybe she'll start to condemn acts who push the idea that driving round in giant, gas guzzling cars is a sustainable way of living. Now, who was it do that one about "looking flashy in my Mercedes Benz" a few years back?

I also kind of like the idea that climate change is such a super duper tip-top secret, known only by tame popstars and, er, EVERYONE ON THE FUCKING PLANET!!!
For christ sakes, woman, I can wander down to my local multiplex and see a film about it made by your former vice president.
