The New York Post reports profiled Details magazine’s September issue and their report on stealth celebrity conservatives, including Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore. But when contacted by The Post, Moore vehemently denied any affiliation to the Republican party via her publicist, who emphatically stated that “Mandy is not, nor has she ever been, a Republican.”
In December 2001, Moore performed at the TNT Christmas in Washington, which was attended by President Bush. She told readers on her website then: “I still can not believe I had the honor to meet our PRESIDENT and perform for him and the First Lady. It could have been one of the coolest moments of my life (and the proudest for my parents). Regardless of your political preference, meeting one of the most influential men in the world is truly unimaginable.”

Lazy Days For Mandy Moore
August 11, 2004 – Mandy posted a message to her fans on Sunday (August 8). The singer/actress writes, “Guys, eek! Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve said hello. I wish I could blame it on some insanely hectic schedule, but I’ve been kind of a lazy bum recently. In between watching some wonderful films, hanging with some new friends, and going to the occasional meeting, I’ve been writing a bunch with my friend James (who is *amazing* by the way) and I’m really excited to find the right producer, band, etc… and get working on the record for real.” Forum speculators are guessing “James” is James Renald, who was the writer for Moore’s single ‘Cry’ and is the member of the Canadian group Sky. In an interview with Allpop.com, Moore said Renald “could be one of the most talented singer-songwriters out there.”
