Gene Simmons & Other Rockstars Sound Off On Rihanna’s “Karaoke” Singing


If you’re a fan of Rihanna, you know she considers herself has a rockstar. Unfortunately, one iconic rock group in particular had some pretty harsh words for the Barbadian pop star.

During a press conference to announce their reunion tour with Motley Crue, Gene Simmons said:

“We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No karaoke singers allowed. No fake bullsh-t. Leave that to Rihanna-Schimianna and everybody else whose name ends with an ‘A.’”

On the other hand, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee had some nicer words to say towards Rihanna:

“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. 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.”

Well then…
