Well we all know that the majority of rockers are not the biggest fans of pop stars. It just isn’t in their blood. They want the drums, bass guitar and the electric guitar. Let’s just say that Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee and KISS’s Gene Simmons clearly are NOT fans. After recently announcing their joint summer tours, Simmons and Lee threw some big fat slams at the now famous pop stars, using Rihanna as their example.
Simmons said, “We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No fake bullsh*t. Leave that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an ‘A.’”
Tommy Lee went in for his dig adding, “No disrespect to Rihanna, she’s a great singer, but we’re in a slump for some sh*t that has some personality and appeal beyond a bunch of pop stuff that’s floating around out there… because I don’t think I can bear watching another f*cking award show that is just a little bit better than ‘American Idol… It’s f*cking pathetic to watch people go out and f*cking karaoke with a bunch of lights and video. It’s all completely watered down.”
Ok so these guys surely are entitled to their opinion but then again, they must also realize that pop music is called pop music for a reason. It’s all sunshine, bubblegum and rainbows.
