Gene Simmons Slams Rihanna: I’m Tired of ‘Fake Bullsh-t’
“We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them,” Simmons said. “No fake bullsh-t. Leave that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an ‘A.'”
Consider Madonna in that group too. Gene also bashed her halftime performance at the Super Bowl.
Backstage, Tommy Lee told Billboard that he agreed with Gene’s statement concerning RiRi to an extent:
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. I’m glad he said that actually because I don’t think i can bear watching another f***ing award show that is just a little bit better than ‘American Idol.’ It’s f***ing pathetic to watch people go out and f***ing karaoke with a bunch of lights and video. It’s all completely watered down.
So, are you Team Simmons or Team Rihanna? Weigh in below.
Also, Rihanna and Katy Perry are teaming up for a duet. We’re guessing it’s safe to say Tommy and Gene won’t be buying the single off iTunes. Get more details on that right here:
