American folk rock duo the Indigo Girls where shocked when punk star Pink called and asked them to work on a new song with her. The Atlanta, Georgia-based musicians worked with the STUPID GIRLS singer on the controversial song ROCK N ROLL HEAVEN'S GATE. AMY RAY explains, "It's just sort of about the music industry - it's kind of a rah-rah song to keep going despite the odds. "We had met her doing a song of hers called DEAR MR PRESIDENT. She's amazing, just amazing." EMILY SALLERS adds, "We got a call from her people and she invited us to be on her record and we were like, "Are you kidding?' "We were blown away because we're both major fans of hers. "It turns out she spent like four years in Atlanta on a record label doing sort of hip-hoppy music and made a shift after that, but was a fan of our music growing up. "So we're like, 'Yeah! We're there!'"

That's right. And all those "hip-hoppy" fans she had amassed in that period were then left out to dry with no explanation or apology for supporting who we believed her to be when we went out and bought her records, solidifying the platform of her career; only to be completely forgotten about by the time her second album came out, so obviously geared toward the genre she REALLY wanted to belong to.People like myself, who were a fan of Pink at the start of her career have been stepped on - I can't see how that can be denied. She started out RnB/Hip Hop to build a fanbase, and once she'd made it went back to her Rock roots.I'm not saying that I'm not still a fan, I do still like her, though not as much as originally; but I do think to lie to people to get your foot in the door and then walk on through without them is quite an unfair thing to do and I really think she needs to address that.
