Gene Simmons Slams Rihanna
2012-03-21 by andcas | 112 Comments
Legendary rock band KISS was in the process of announcing their North America summer tour with supporters Motley Crue when bassist Gene Simmons laid into what he harshly refers to as "Karaoke Singers" in the music industry.

The main target of ridicule was none other than the Barbados superstar Rihanna. In promotional hype, Simmons urged the crowd that both sets would be completely authentic, unlike a majority of the latest artists in his crosshairs.

"We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," scoffed Simmons before he concluded, "No fake bullshit. Leave that to the Rihanna - Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an 'A.'" The press conference slowly paused.

Motley Crue's Tommy Lee wasted no time offering up his approval, "No disrespect to Rihanna, she's a great singer, but we're in a slump for some shit that has some personality and appeal beyond a bunch of pop stuff that's floating around out there." The drummer wrapped up his two cents by sharing his hatred for the questionable nature of modern day music award shows.

So far no return fire about the remarks have been issued from anyone in the Rihanna camp.

I like Rihanna. Tommy Lee is a washed-up loser who has to do drum covers of Soulja Boy in order to hype up his dumb popularity. Gene Simmons sucks, Kiss has always sucked. It's all money, they don't have visions of nature and beauty, they want pussy, money, cars and other stupid shit.

LOOK WHO'S TALKING, GENE.

Half of the KISS show nowadays is karaoke, and your group has always been known for all manner of trickery, such as studio album edits, added backing tapes in live performances, ghost musicians, and so on. How do you get off criticising others for something you do extensively yourself, you hypocritical little douchenozzle?
