Kid Rock Performs As Part of USO Tour

NEW YORK (AP) - Kid Rock is mum on the state of his love life, but he wants to spread the word about supporting American troops in Iraq after he performed there as part of a USO tour.

``It was just unbelievable to be there and have the sense of kind of what was really important in life, like a respect, an appreciation for the people who were there putting their life at risk for our way of life, our country,'' he told The Associated Press Tuesday.

The 32-year-old rock-rapper went to Kuwait and Iraq last week to meet soldiers, along with John Stamos and his wife, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, the rap group Nappy Roots and other celebrities.

Kid Rock arrived at a military hangar in Baghdad expecting to just sign autographs. But when the thousands of troops started cheering him on, he gave an impromptu concert, using instruments on stage designated for a military band.

``I grabbed the guitar and started singing a cappella,'' he said. ``John Stamos played the drums.''

The entertainer said a few of the troops he talked to were worried that some Americans were upset over the war.

``I told them that `the people I know, my loved ones, my family, my friends, we're all behind you guys 100 percent,''' he said. ``If people are behind their troops, they really should be vocal about it, because it means the world to these kids who are putting their lives on the line for us.''

While Kid Rock eagerly talked about his USO trip, he declined to discuss the state of his relationship with Pamela Anderson; although the two had been engaged, she recently described herself as being ``free.''

``I have no comment,'' he said.
