At awards show, Morissette skit protests U.S. censorship

Canadian rocker Alanis Morissette didn't bare her breast like Janet Jackson did, but she did bare her soul Sunday night at Canada's annual music awards, demonstrating her disdain for what she called "hypocritical U.S. censorship."

Hosting the 2004 Juno Awards ceremonies, Canada's version of the Grammys, Morissette disrobed onstage to reveal a skin-colored, naked body suit with nipples and pubic hair.

The satirical act, Morissette said, was aimed at U.S. government institutions for overreacting to cultural free expression as a result of the fallout surrounding Janet Jackson's Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction," when her breast was exposed to millions of TV viewers.

"As you may or may not be aware, recently in the United States, I ran into a little problem with regards to a lyric in one my songs," Morissette told the near-sellout audience of 17,000, referring to her latest release, titled Everything. The lyrics include the words, "I can be an a------ of the grandest kind."

"Well, I am overjoyed to be back in my homeland, the true North ... strong and censor-free."

I see government censorship issues as being a hot topic in the upcoming election. FCC is cracking down on radio, Oprah and soap operas? Having had little success with its "War on Drugs," or its "War on Terrorism," is the GOP moving on to the "War on Indecency?"

It is strange, and somewhat embarrassing to me to see another country (even worse, Canada) rightfully mocking the U.S.A.'s crackdown on Free Speech. I guess the First Amendment ain't what it used to be.

Sorry,

didn't think I was off topic. As I tried to explain in my comment to the post, I feel that headlines such as this, containing the words "U.S. Censorship," are a reference to the policies of the incumbent President and will impact his reelection bid.

But it is your thread, and you make the rules. Do all appropriate headlines have to contain a direct reference to GWB? Either way, I will try to comply in the future.

Thanks in advance.

That's it. Posts which deal with GWB in the headline are what the thread is about. Either pro or con. If you wish to comment on the article at the same time that is okay also. Example:
Headline
url
article
comment:-----
Thanks.

Wow, you are good.

After a clever dressing down like that, I can't believe I'm willing to show my face here ever again.
