Gene Simmons Attacks Rihanna: I'm Tired Of Her 'Fake Bulls**t'

Thu, March 22, 2012 11:24am EDT by 12 Comments

During a KISS & Motley Crue press conference for their new tour, Gene Simmons dissed Rihanna saying she is “karaoke”! What do YOU think about his blast on the pop star?

Gene Simmons, 62, decided he was going to shoot his mouth off about Rihanna, 24! On March 20 at a promotional press conference in Hollywood, the rock star’s insults started with ranting about being “sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No fake bulls**t!” What? Maybe Rihanna’s FIVE Grammy awards don’t prove anything to him! The rock band only has ONE Grammy award!

The KISS front man added: “Leave that to ‘Rihanna Shmianna,’ and anyone who ends their name with an A.” What does that have to do with singing ability, Gene? So, Aretha Franklin must be a “fake” singer?!

KISS drummer Tommy Lee agreed with Simmons: “It’s all completely watered down” and “It’s f**king pathetic”!

Poor Rihanna! We think you’re an amazing singer and performer!

What do YOU think about the diss by KISS?

“and anyone who ends their name with an A.” That’s racist. It’s a typical racial joke that most black girls names end with A.

I totally agree, I witnessed both Kiss and Motley Crue, and no one today and I mean no one can even come close. They were exciting, they were dangerous, they were out of their minds, all of that is missing in music today! It is boring and bland. The 80’s were wild, everything went, sex, drugs rock n roll and you didnt even need to be a rock star! You can still go to their shows and observe the women getting down and dirty, today you have a bunch of uptight jerk off’s who are worried the ozone layer!!!

AND compare her to Adele. She doesn’t have ANY dancers or what so ever at the background. She just has her voice and I think she deserved her Grammys if that would make any difference :)

i think we all know what kind of “singer” Rihanna is. And how she actually sounds when playback is off…so i totally agree here with Gene Simmons. Jay-Z or with whoever she she collaborates made her big star wrote couple of hit songs but she is going down with her sado-maso style and being vulgar she just became too desperate for any attention. And her voice is weak if anyone would choos her to play amazing Whitney Houston that would be the biggest misunderstanding she doesnt have powerful voice or nice tune. People get real face the truth just go on youtube and check her caught up when the playback was off… Gene Simmons is right. And whoever wrote that article and compared him to Rihanna by judging Grammy awards i say SERIOUSLY ? This website is going down …Giovanna maybe make some reserach coz ur journalism sucks it is not hight school sweetie dont ever compare a Legend to a bimbo from Barbados

I’m not a Rihanna fan….but “girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them”? Really? Has Gene Simmons looked at whose in her band? Nuno Bettencourt ring a bell?

Considering that the Beatles and the Rolling Stones don’t have any Grammies, either, it’s laughable to see this author measuring the value of a performer by the number of Grammies he, she, group won. The only Beatle to get a Grammy was John Lennon for “Double Fantasy” and that was after he was killed. Rihanna isn’t knee-high to Gene Simmons.
