I don't wanna be your friend/ just take off your clothes and get into my bed...
RollingStone.com has a short article about Kathleen Edwards, alt-country's Canadian Liz Phair.
After Edwards said "fucking" during her set at the televised 2003 concert to promote post-SARS tourism in her home city of Toronto, she received a slew of nasty emails. "Some fuckin' asshole from the prairies was like, 'You shouldn't be swearing. It's not very lady-like,'" Edwards says. "I said, 'Do you realize that I was on the bill with AC/DC, and half their songs are about venereal diseases and sucking cock? You're just upset because you don't think a woman is entitled to speak the way a man is more than welcome to.'"
