Et tu, Kid Rock? by Christian Toto 19 Jan 2009 post a comment Share This: Wasn't Kid Rock one of the few pop stars not to pledge allegiance to the destruction of President Bush? The Bush daughters even wanted him to play at the 2005 presidential inauguration concert. Now, it seems Kid Rock is going all bipartisan on us. He's expected to be one of the performers at the Youth Inaugural Ball, to be broadcast tomorrow night (Jan. 20) on MTV. What happened? Well, maybe he's smarter than we all thought. Don't celebrities realize when they align themselves so vocally to one party they potentially alienate those who support the other party? You know, roughly half the country. Kid Rock isn't hailed as a genius, but he's smart enough to know he shouldn't mouth off about politics. So expect some grungy rock tomorrow night and hopefully he'll stay true to his word and let his guitar speak for him.
