Gene Simmons & Tommy Lee Fire Shots at Rihanna – “Rihanna Shmianna”.

I wasn’t aware that Gene Simmons went to many pop star concerts but he’s gone to enough to think that Rihanna is not really singing.  During a press conference for KISS, Gene Simmons didn’t hold back regarding his thoughts on the issue,

‘We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No fake bulls***.
‘Leave that to the Rihanna, Shmianna and anyone who ends their name with an A.’

Backstage the criticism continued with famed drummer Tommy Lee,

‘No disrespect to Rihanna, she’s a great singer, but we’re in a slump for some s*** 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***ing award show that is just a little bit better than American Idol.

‘It’s f***ing pathetic to watch people go out and f***ing karaoke with a bunch of lights and video.

‘It’s all completely watered down.’

See, all you have to say before disrespecting someone is , “No Disrespect” and it makes the statement  you are about to say not disrespectful.  Gene Simmons is living up to his reputation as a businessman, his comments right or wrong has given him more press then he would have received otherwise.  No one even knew KISS was performing with Motley Crue until the statements were released.  Voila’ free publicity.

Rihanna’s twitter page has been unusually quiet.  The usually outspoken artist had nothing to say in response to either comment.  Hmmmm…
