WASHINGTON (AP) - Andrew W.K. won’t be taking his party to Bahrain after all.
The American performer announced on his website that he had been named a cultural ambassador to Bahrain, where he’d promote “partying and world peace.”
Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Monday that the invitation to 33-year-old singer of songs including “Party Til You Puke” had been rescinded by senior U.S. officials because they deemed him an inappropriate choice for outreach in the conservative Muslim kingdom.
Andrew W.K. describes himself as a singer-songwriter and motivational speaker, among other things.
