Pop Star Pink On Gay Marriage...

I love pop star Pink... she is super talented, both tough and tender-hearted, and writes smart snappy songs like her current Blow Me (One Last Kiss), Raise Your Glass and the awesome Stupid Girls.

Her songs are about life, love, girl power, bullying, rebellion, humour, and social issues. Pink has taken on the vapid starlets and the bullies and has loudly stood up for equal rights for gay people. 

Forbes listed Pink as the 27th most powerful celebrity in the world because she not only sells records, she inspires and influences people.

If you have not heard her 2006 song with the Indigo Girls,  Dear Mr President, an open letter to President Bush, go find it right now...

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
No child is left behind?
We're not dumb and we're not blind.
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell.

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.

 All hail Pink!
