On Saturday, it was announced Andrew WK was headed to Bahrain to represent the U.S. on some kind of cultural thingie. His trip would include visits to schools and music venues “all while promoting partying and world peace.”
Then today it was announced the whole thing was canceled due to Andrew’s “Wild oeuvre.” What oeuvre? He’s the most apolitical guy around. After 9-11, “I Love NYC” could have become a polarizing anthem but the lyrics sound like “Take the Skinheads Bowling.” What the fuck does, “Move on corners, move around
Talk no talk, breaking you down” mean?
So why did they bail on this awesome idea? His wife is originally Iranian but she does a lot of pro gay stuff. Did that freak them out? I don’t think so. People in Iran love Freddie Mercury and you’d have to have your burqa on backwards not to notice he was gay. His band was called QUEEN for fucksakes!
Was it Andrew’s love of partying? He never includes booze and drugs in the party talk and always makes it clear it’s just a state of mind. Did they just chicken out because they got a bunch of calls and nobody wanted to get in trouble? Ginger Spice represented the United Nations and she made her fortune with a song about fuckbuddies. Is this just another example of the pussification of America?
