Are Pink’s anti-Bush views being censored?
The outspoken rocker — who recently went after her singing sex-symbol peers in her song “Stupid Girls” — is now taking aim at the commander in chief, in her controversial song, “Dear Mr. President.” But she says that she’s not allowed to discuss her political views on the radio.
Pink appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and thanked him for letting her sing and discuss the song, which she says the hasn’t been able to do on the radio or other TV shows.
“Dear Mr. President,” which attacks Bush’s domestic and war policies, is an open letter to the president, she explained.

Madonna's new co-worker
Madonna and Justin Timberlake are hoping to make beautiful music together. Or at least hip music.
The Material Girl and the former Mouseketeer are collaborating on her next album, her spokeswoman confirmed to The Scoop.
Madonna’s latest CD was a dance album, and she wants the next one to have a hip-hop feel, so she’s working with both Timberlake and his producer and friend, Timbaland.
“True indeed,” notes Madonna’s rep, Liz Rosenberg. “She was just in the studio with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland.”
Notes from all over
Will Ian Ziering pose for Playgirl? The “90210” star is hot again because of his moves on “Dancing With the Stars,” and was offered $100,000 to pose for the skin mag, according to In Touch Weekly. But even if he accepts the offer, Ziering will have to wait until his gig on the dance show is over. . . . Keira Knightley has an Achilles’ heel in the looks department: her feet. The Brit beauty reportedly had a body double in her latest movie because the producers feel her feet weren’t ready for their close-up. “Keira’s feet were too big and veiny,” a source told Britain’s Closer magazine. “(Knightley) thought it was really funny.” . . . “Ugly Betty” star Vanessa Williams has a set of hot new wheels. “For my 40th birthday, I got a Maserati coupe, a sports car with paddle shifting and a great-sounding engine,” Williams told More magazine. “It’s really fast — plus I get big props from the guys on the set of ‘Ugly Betty’ because I can handle it. They love to hear me zoom up and screech to a halt. Being able to get the toys I want is one of the true luxuries of getting older. I wish I’d always known about options like climate control — to think, I used to just roll down a window!”
