“We post this article to show you how ridiculous it has all become. Who cares what Gene Simmons thinks about politics. He’s a rock star who has slept with over 5000 women and has pretty much ruined the legacy of KISS. Have you seen recent videos of the band? It’s embarrassing.” –KTRN
Twitter went to a statement on his official website where Simmons seemed surprised that the media was reporting what he said to millions of viewers.
“I suppose the nature of media is, comments are often taken out of context and used for incendiary headline purposes. I was quoted on Fox as saying I prefer Gov Romney only as far as fiscal economic areas are concerned. And I stand by that comment. But I have not endorsed either Gov Romney or Pres Obama,” Simmons wrote, adding that he thought President Obama was a “good man. Loves his family. And loves America. But that doesn’t mean I agree with his policies.”
