Kiss is gearing up for a summer tor with Motley Crue, and front-man Gene Simmons went right in on Rihanna at the press conference announcement.
Simmons told the crowd on hand, “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.’”
Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee also chimed in, taking a little bit nicer of an approach, explaining to Billboard.com, “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. I’m glad he said that actually 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.”
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday and the first date is scheduled for mid June.
We are patiently awaiting a response from Rihanna, who won’t be one to back down.
