Kid Rock's Bush inauguration concert upsetting conservative Christians
UPI News Service, 01/07/2005
Conservative Christians are upset rapper Kid Rock has been asked to do a youth concert as part of President Bush's inaugural festivities.
"What in the world are these people thinking?" asked Donald Wildmon, chairman of the American Family Association in Tupelo, Miss. "This is the biggest slap in the face to the Christian conservatives."
Kid Rock reportedly will perform during "America Rocks Today: A Call to Service," a multimedia concert, the New York Daily News said. Bush's daughter Barbara is the event's co-managing director.
The 33-year-old Detroit rocker currently dates porn actress Jessie James, never goes anywhere without a pint of bourbon in his back pocket and rattles off X-rated lyrics that regularly earn his albums parental advisory warnings, the Daily News says.
