Pink Inspires Fans

PINK is thrilled by the response to her anti-Bush song MR PRESIDENT, because it has inspired fans to take up the cause. The song, which features on her new album I'M NOT DEAD, includes lyrics lambasting GEORGE W BUSH: "Dear Mr President/What do you feel when you see all the homeless in the street/Do you pray at night before you go to sleep." It is unlikely to be approved for release as a single in the US, but Pink is more satisfied by the response it has provoked among civil liberties campaigners and fans, many of whom have created their own videos to accompany it for online broadcaster Youtube. Pink says, "I've been crying my eyes out watching the videos on Youtube (online broadcaster) - that song has a life of its own now. The Civil Liberties Union has now got involved because a 10-year-old was banned from performing it at her elementary school."
