Look!

http://www.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/Music/07/19/ronstadt.reut/index.html

I can't figure out whether she's into Michael Moore, or she said that to get fired, she sounds like she's on drugs in this interview.

The Aladdin sucks anyway, people with real dough stay at Belagio or MGM. Floyd and I used to go Vegas, but that was a long time ago and we stayed at Caesar's in the executive suite because I am, after all, a movie star.

I know, but the article makes it sound like she wanted to get fired. Did she do this on purpose because she wanted never to get invited back, or is she really into Michael Moore?

Whack!

I was asked to entertain in all the top Vegas casinos, but I didn't think it went with my screen image, and now I'm too old. If they had built me a big house like Celine Dion, I would have done it though, I mean, a buck's a buck.

The fascists are running wildly, and nobody seems to care.

who knows, helen! she should have never accepted the gig to begin with if that was the case (unless she was trying to get out of a contract of some kind)...

on the other hand...it does sound pretty much like she's popped a few of the red ones...:eek:

It sounded like the casino had a riot on its hands, a quarter of the audience leaves before the song's over? That's awful, Vegas audiences will listen to anything and are half-drunk anyway.

And people are predicting a Kerry landslide? :confused:

I don't think anybody's predicting a Kerry landslide. Whenever a society has banned people from their careers from making jibes @ the president, then we know there's a problem with freedom of speech. I don't think that favors Kerry @ all.

freedom of speech is one thing, pr...but if you're in vegas paying money to be entertained without the baggage of political viewpoints being involved...you should get what you pay for.

DeuceD,
They were listening to Linda Ronstadt!!!!! What did they expect to get in the way of entertainment? I doubt seriously that they went to the ticket office and said, "I would like a ticket for high-pitched, crap please." Exactly what were they trying to get in the first place?

Is her "Desperado" the sme as the Eagles'? Because if it is, it's an odd tribute, don't you think?

Seems like a huge fuss over nothing - stomping around ripping down posters, etc. becaues she dedicated a song to somone. Whatever. I don't buy for one minute though that they were offended by the fact that she was "preaching" rather than by WHAT she was preaching. People only really object to entertainers voicing opinions when they disagree with them (true of the left as well as the right).

She was escorted off the premises by the cops more than fired.

But that doesn't sound-bite as well.

Totally agree people are out to have fun and enjoy themselves if they wanted a night of politics they wouldnt be going to a concert. Celebrities really need to wake up

I guess the management and Linda "dance to the beat of a Different Drum". :D
It's a very strange article that I can't make sense of. Maybe she has a contract, but only has to appear once a year? Was it one night and they pre-paid her and for some reason, she didn't want to sing the whole show and wanted to get fired mid-show? Why bother.
