At the risk of wrecking the streak, it would have been far greater if she had said "I wanna sing music that makes you "just dance" in Iran, without fear of getting stoned to death"

Nonetheless, she's alright in my books.

The sad thing is that after all that has happened it never occurred to me an artist from the West would consider protesting anyone but our own.

You make an excellent point.

It would certainly run against the grain, which is tragic and sadly comedic at the same time. Carrying the point further, (and straying a little OT), it's easy to make symbolic pledges when there is no jack-booted tyrant with an AK-47 pointed at your head. None of these celebs seem to realize that their creativity and efforts (movies, music, etc) are anathema to the ruling elites in dozens of countries around the globe.

As for me, I'll pledge to Just Dance whenever I damned well feel like it, and I will resist any authority that says it is shameful. And I'll point out the immorality of all those who would deny that same freedom in others.

So who was #3?

Cleans up well, doesn't she?

And we are THREE for THREE! :-)

Just so you all know, your anti-GaGaism featured prominently in one of my lectures this week.
