Her singing or wailing has never impressed me no matter how much the media told me how much I was supposed to be impressed.That voice was always nails on a chalk board and the songs were meh.
Early in her career she used to be on CBC all the time in her zoot suit singing country songs which was ahead of it's time because this was years ago and she pulled no punches in her appearance. So it was great that all those years ago they had an obvious dyke on there who didn't apologize for being a dyke.

k.d. has always enjoyed her feminine side. I know it's hard for boys to understand but many "butch" women do have a femme side and k.d. often talks about hers.

She was NEVER 'rail thin'. She always had a healthy -yes I'll say it- "Big Boned" body.
I worry about her weight gain only because of her health. She seems like she has gone through a phase of depressed pot smoker.

I can see your point. She went through a kind of neo-hippe -new-agey phase with her "All you can eat" album. She would go barefoot and wear kimonos and something that looked like silk pajamas on stage.
This new one looks like she's returning to her big-band country style roots. I sure hope she does. I could use a GOOD lang album these days.
She has a Twitter account for her new band now and she- or her manager who posts for her- posts as if EVERYTHING IS SO EXCITING!!!!!! (god help us). I hope this actually her posting. She sounds like a 12 year old.

These boys love their lesbians fat and manly so that they can make fun of them.
I saw k.d. sing at a crowded outdoor theater in Kansas City (fine, enter your bible belt fly-over midwest joke here.) She was only opening for someone else and most of crowd could care less that she was there. For most of her act people were rummaging around, talking, drinking, yelling back and forth, etc. God, I thought I was at a carnival.
Finally Lang sang [italic]"Three Cigarettes in An Ashtray"[/italic] and by the end of this song- I do not exaggerate- YOU COULD HEAR A PIN DROP the crowd was so stunned by her voice. The whole arena was dead silent. In between her vocals I even heard birds and a train whistle that must have been miles away. She got a standing ovation.
My straight male friend who never heard her live before leaned over to me and whispered, "Wow. Ok, now I get it."
Make fun of her weight, her hair, he face- whatever. But if you ever have a chance to see her live. Do it.

I must live near her because I see her in her car with her dogs once a month or so.
The first time my dog freak daughter was saying "look at the beautiful Huskies" Look!" and I looked over to see kd waving sweetly at my 6 year old as I had "Summerfling" on the car stereo. Surreal.
I told my daughter, "that's the lady singing on the ipod" but she just cared about the dogs and insisted it was a nice man who waved at her. I had to explain twice that she was a woman with short hair. She finally got it when we watched her on the Olympics. Now kd is up there with Doris Day for my kid because they love animals.
