After being really popular for a couple of years, Kid Rock seems to vanished in the recent years, but he’s making a comeback with his new album. Titled First Kiss, it’s coming out in February.
The first thing Kid did was an interview with The Guardian. Mostly bragging about his rebel spirit and antics that only rich people can pull off, Kid also told some rather awkward stories:
Here’s the excerpt from The Guardian.
About the internet: “I don’t FaceTweet or whatever people do. I understand that I’m the old guy now. I turn on my computer and look at pr0n a little bit, see what’s going on in the news, but that’s about it. I’m comfortable with that.”
About his politics: “I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.”
Why did he perform for Obama? “I played Barack Obama’s inauguration even though I didn’t vote for him. I didn’t agree with his policies, but there was an exciting sense of change in the air. That promise hasn’t been fulfilled — the country is more divided than ever.”
All his cash: “I’m not just wealthy, I’m loaded. I can say that because I’m not embarrassed — I’ve made a f***-ton of money, but I’ve never made a dishonest dollar. I try to do right by the people around me.”
His “redneck” cred: “I’m 43 and about to become a grandfather, but it keeps my redneck street cred up. I could be a great-great-great-grandfather by the time I’m 80. I am excited, but also nervous for my son. He was dropped on my doorstep at six months when I had no money and was trying to be a rock star. I didn’t have a clue.”
Guns: “I’m always buying more guns. I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns. If someone invades your house, yeah, you can shoot them. I don’t think crazy people should have guns.”
Why he’ll never be PC: “Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. But it turned into a lot of bullsh*t and it turned out to be pretty gay … If someone says you can’t say ‘gay’ like that you tell them to go f*** themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.”
