Tag: Kid Rock
Way back in 2008 (not that long, I know), Kid Rock promised us all he wouldn’t be getting political, and even chastised music entertainers who got into endorsing candidates and playing music for free for them at small political rallies.
He said, “I truly believe that people like myself, who are in a position of entertainers in the limelight, should keep their mouth shut on politics. Because at the end of the day, I’m good at writing songs and singing. What I’m not educated in is the field of political science. And so for me to be sharing my views and influencing people of who I think they should be voting for … I think would be very irresponsible on my part.”
He went on to say, “I think celebrity endorsements hurt politicians. As soon as somebody comes out for a politician, especially in Hollywood, when they all go, ‘I’m voting for this guy!’ I go, ‘That’s not who I’m voting for!’”
Well this week Mitt Romney managed to seal the endorsement of the 42-year-old performer, who didn’t speak but rather played the song Born Free to a “crowd of hundreds” at the Royal Oak Music Center in Royal Oak, Michigan.
After Jennifer Hudson gave an emotional performance in a stunning black dress, Emily Proctor and Jason Mraz took the stage to introduce the Jonas Brothers along with Stevie Wonder.
Blink 182 took the stage afterwards to announce that “Blink 182 is back!” They announced the winner of the Best Rock Album Grammy.
Coldplay won again! It must be their year. I’m not amused. How did they beat out Metallica or Kid Rock?

Watch out Jessica Simpson, you’re not the only one out there with a beer to pawn!
Kid Rock iswith the help of Drinks Americas Holdings and is launching his premium domestic beer, next year.
Drinks Americas CEO says, “Kid Rock is a reflection of great American rock and roll music and the American spirit, and we think we can create a beer in that same image. There is no question in our mind that people will try a beer that Kid Rock will stand by and when they like it, a great and incredibly valuable trademark will be created.”

Kid Rock knows how to have a party, alright. Apparently, the rocker got kicked out of a VMAs afterparty when he started trashing the furniture. It was said that he trashed the entire hotel suite and was smashing tables and breaking glasses.
An insider says, “Kid jumped on tables and chairs and crashed through one table. And he broke around 20 glasses.”
Dude, you’re not 17 anymore. Grow up already.

Kid Rock is not going out any time soon in support of any of the political candidates, in fact, he wants to keep his opinions to himself on the whole matter. So much that he thinks other people should, too.
He says, “I truly believe that people like myself, who are in a position of entertainers in the limelight, should keep their mouth shut on politics. Because at the end of the day, I’m good at writing songs and singing. What I’m not educated in is the field of political science. And so for me to be sharing my views and influencing people of who I think they should be voting for … I think would be very irresponsible on my part.”
He went on to say, “I think celebrity endorsements hurt politicians. As soon as somebody comes out for a politician, especially in Hollywood, when they all go, ‘I’m voting for this guy!’ “ I go, ‘That’s not who I’m voting for!’ ”
I’m with him on this one. So many celebrities and musicians are backing their choice of politicians, but shut up about it already. No one cares who you’re voting for, because in the end, all you have is one vote and it doesn’t carry any more weight than mine.
Kid Rock performed for our troops over in Iraq over the holiday and he says he did 13 shows and seven different countries in five days.
Kid Rock supports our troops. Wonder if he supports the war, too?
Kid Rock designed his own Jesus pendant for the release of his new album, Rock N Roll Jesus:
KID ROCK really thinks he is the ROCK N ROLL JESUS – the title of his new hit album – after designing a new pendant featuring an image of himself wearing a crown of thorns. The 14-carat gold pendant, which was crafted by jeweller Diamond Dave, features a 3-D portrait of the rap/rocker in the image of Jesus Christ.
I’m not buying it, I don’t think he’s a rock n roll Jesus at all. I like his music, especially Bawitdaba, but a Jesus, he is not. No matter how many pendants of yourself you design. Heh heh.
In Atlanta, Georgia, Kid Rock performed at his concert, and afterwards opted for some southern hospitality in the form of a waffle house. There, him and his entourage (5 guys) got into it with:
“Rock along with five members of his entourage were charged with one count of battery, which is a misdemeanor. The victim … was treated and released at a local hospital for his injuries,” Mekka Parish, spokeswoman for DeKalb police, said.
The Waffle House pressed charges against the man involved in the fight with Rock’s entourage after a window was punched out during the fight, which started inside but ended in the parking lot, Parish said.
Can you imagine getting your butt kicked by Kid Rock, then having to foot the bill?!?
