Ronstadt kicked off stage, out of hotel

Ronstadt kicked off stage, out of hotelLinda Ronstadt not only got booed, she also got the boot after lauding filmmaker Michael Moore and his new movie, "Fahrenheit 9/11," during a performance at the Aladdin hotel-casino on Saturday night. The 58-year-old singer called Moore a "great American patriot" and encouraged everyone to see the documentary, which is severely critical of President Bush. Hotel spokeswoman Tyri Squyres said it wasn't Ronstadt's message per se that management objected to, but, "She wanted to incite the audience, and she incited them to the point where they were very upset. ... She was hired to entertain, not to preach."
