Late, Late Night FDL: When Will I Be Loved

Linda Ronstadt – When Will I Be Loved

Linda Ronstadt was awarded the National Medal of Arts…

Linda Ronstadt got the answer to that question she’s been asking for decades: “When Will I Be Loved?”

The answer was Monday at the White House, by President Barack Obama, who hung a National Medal of Arts around her neck and revealed, “I had a little crush on her back in the day.”

The honor was a particularly special moment for Ronstadt, who didn’t make it to her induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April since Parkinson’s disease limits her ability to travel. A military aide brought her into the East Room by wheelchair, but she walked to the stage to receive her award as a citation was read honoring her “one-of-a-kind voice” that paved the way for generations of women artists.

What’s on your mind tonite…?
