Rock Star 101

While Rihanna beleives in her Bajan heart the life she lives is that of a Rock Star, Gene Simmons and Tommy Lee are letting her know she ain’t about that life. Gene Simmons reveals her performances come from a hopeless place saying “We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them,” Simmons said, according to Billboard. “No karaoke singers allowed. No fake bullsh-t. Leave that to Rihanna-Schimianna and everybody else whose name ends with an ‘A.’ Wow Tommy Lee started off trying to give Rihanna some propts but turned around and compared her to a step above an American Idol performance saying 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,” he said. “I’m glad he said that actually because I don’t think I can bear watching another f—king award show that is just a little better than ‘American Idol.’ It’s f—king pathetic to watch people go out and f—king karaoke with a bunch of lights and video. It’s all completely watered down.” ouch. The quips are similar to the ones Linda Perry sounded off on Katy Perry last year saying “So people download the single, and that’s it. She’s great for what she does, but she’s not reinventing the wheel, she’s not giving substance, she’s just giving microwave popcorn to feast on right at this moment. She’s not looking to change the world musically, so all the power to her. I’m not saying that’s bad, I’m saying it’s not what I participate in. That’s part of the reason why the music business is in turmoil.” Reading what the legend have to say about Rihanna and her friends makes the fact that Katy tried to give Beyonce an underhanded compliment that much funnier. What do you think about what Gene Simmons and Linda Perry said?
