Spring Music Preview: Defending gays, criticizing Bush all the rage

by Jeremy Hooper

   On her upcoming album I'm Not Dead, rocky/poppy/pinky songstress P!nk has a song called "Dear Mr. President," which features the lyric:

what kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away / and what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay / i can only imagine what the first lady has to say / you've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

   Additionally, the Dixie Chicks' first single from their forthcoming album Taking The Long Way is the song "Not Ready to Make Nice," an apparent "F*** You!" to the critics who attacked them for speaking out against Bush. That song features the lyric:

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby, with no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’/ It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger/ And how in the world can the words that I said, send somebody so over the edge/ That they’d write me a letter sayin’ that I better shut up and sing or my life will be over

No word on when Toby Keith's "The Dixie Chicks and Pink Can Kiss My Ultra-Patriotic Ass" will hit record stores, though we'll keep you posted.
