When will she be loved? *

| 15 Comments

Singer Linda Ronstadt, the girlfriend of Jerry Brown back when he was governor, got booed out of the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas for talking nice about Michael Moore and Fahrenheit 9/11 this past weekend. She brings her act home to L.A. and the Universal Amphitheatre tonight.

* Overblown?: Ronstadt tells the L.A. Times she wasn't thrown out of the hotel, but she says the house was strongly divided about her on-stage remarks:

"At first there's just silence, then there's "Yeah!" and then there's 'Boo!" and then and then the audience starts fighting with each other," she recalled. "You know how they say we are just polarized down the middle? I've done this all across the country and I'm telling you, it's like my independent poll. I have never seen a reaction like this, in all my years of touring."
