Canadian Rocker, Pink Backup Singer Rocks Prius Un-Ironically

Illustration for article titled Canadian Rocker, Pink Backup Singer Rocks Prius Un-Ironically

Suzie McNeil was the last-female-standing on the reality show Rock Star: INXS and has toured with pop star Pink, making her super famous (for Canada) and earning her enough money to "pimp" her Prius.


The article about Suzie McNeil's Prius, which appears in today's Globe And Mail, is proof a slow news day in Canada is a million times worse than one south of the St. Lawrence. It's literally about how she drives a 2006 Prius and "pimped it out" by tinting the windows. Here are some gems:

"It says I'm concerned about the environment and also I am interested in thinking outside the box and trying new things that will help us," says McNeil, who was nominated for a Juno and a Canadian Radio Music award in 2008.


"When you stop and start, it uses the battery so that just compounds and doing that enough times you just save that much energy and money. I didn't even know that when I bought it; I was, like, do you plug it in?"


The one car she might trade for the Prius? A Volkswagen Beetle convertible. Seriously? When you're on the B-list in America at least you get a hydrogen BMW or a hybrid Lexus. Apparently, a Prius is a noteworthy and expensive car (for Canada).

Oh, Canada. McNeil also brags about being pulled over by two young cops and getting a phone number, which has less to do with the car and more to do with her being attractive (for Canada). Thanks to Mark for the tip!

Forget "about" and "out"

Words like "tomorrow" (tomARow vs tomORow) and "borrow" are far more an issue to our two nations. I don't feel we can truly merge into a single Anglo-North-American identity until this issue is resolved, but perhaps it's best we stay independent on this. Like an artificial language barrier that must stay in place in order to maintain our independence.
