The 40-date tour will simply be called “The Tour.” Gene Simmons struck first blood, saying, “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 also ranted about the state of pop music, but chose not to get personal:
“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*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.”
