Gene Simmons is not here for Rihanna.
At a press conference in Hollywood on Tuesday (March 20) for the co-headlining tour with Motley Crue, the KISS frontman took a swipe at younger acts, singling out the goat whisperer as one of the worst offenders for relying on backing tracks and dancers during live performances.
Talk that talk to me boy.
“We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No fake bullshit. Leave that to the Rihanna-shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an A.”
Motley Crue’s drummer Tommy Lee agreed, telling Billboard.com, ”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. II’m glad he said that actually because I don’t think I can bear watching another fucking award show that is just a little bit better than American Idol. It’s fucking pathetic to watch people go out and fucking karaoke with a bunch of lights and video.”
Expect for Rihanna to respond to the diss by posting Meek Mill lyrics to her Twitter account before night falls.
