Kid Rock Calls Rap-Rock 'Gay,' Says He's Not Looking Forward to Marrying Gay Couples As An Ordained Minister

As far as rock stars go Robert James Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock, has never come off as being the most tolerant when it comes to members of the gay community, but he’s also never really been an explicit homophobe.

Rock showed off that trademark, middle of the road thinking in a recent interview with the Guardian in which he admits that while he’s down with the idea of gays being able to marry, actually officiating a gay wedding would give him pause. Later on in the interview, however, Rock regrettably goes on to describe the the current state of rap-rock music as “gay.”

“Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows,” he said of the genre that made him famous. “But it turned into a lot of bullshit and it turned out to be pretty gay. If someone says you can’t say “gay” like that you tell them to go fuck themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me.”

Unsurprisingly, this isn't a first for Rock. Back in 2009 when asked if he was using Twitter, the self-described “redneck” rocker pejoratively called the social network gay. Three years later, however, Rock appeared in a public service announcement alongside Sean Penn that hinted at his actual support for same-sex marriage.

Though Rock identifies as a Republican, he made no qualms about expressing his discontent with the party in a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone in which he reaffirmed his ideological support of same-sex marriage and suggested that he’d consider voting for Hillary in 2016.

Justin Bieber Asks to Have His Craft Taken Seriously, Says He's Not a Gimmick, Gets Mocked: VIDEO


Justin Bieber asked to be taken seriously at the Billboard Music Awards, where he picked up the Milestone Award.

Said Bieber:

"From my heart, I really just want to say, it should really be about the music, it should be about the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick. I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously, and all this other bull should not be spoken of.”


Taylor Swift had this to say backstage:

Sean Penn and Kid Rock Have Bipartisan Bromance, Attend Gay Wedding in New 'Americans' PSA: VIDEO


Sean Penn and Kid Rock have released a heavy-handed PSA called "Americans" meant to encourage civil discourse and come to terms with our political differences.

CosmoThe description to the heavy-handed, 11-minute clip reads:

The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on. It reminds us that what really matters is that we're all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues. We are millions of unique, individual parts, the sum of which comprise a whole that is the shining beacon of freedom throughout the world. The film reminds us to be proud of our differences, and to never forget that we're all in this together as Americans.

The clip shows the two stars arguing over political issues (and dick sizes) in a bar before a news report about military deaths in Afghanistan comes on, at which time they decide to embrace each other's differences in the name of freedom, and then embark on a bipartisan bromance in which they buy a Prius, attend an environmental rally, and a gay wedding (where one of the men wears a bridal veil). Kid Rock even convinces Penn to stop drinking Cosmopolitans (presumably the liberal wussy drink) and try a beer!

At the end, they exchange PETA and NASCAR t-shirts and walk on a beach as the sun sets.

While the message is certainly an honorable one, the execution is often cringeworthy.

Kid Rock: Twitter is 'Gay' (And Not in a Good Way)


Kid Rock uses "gay" as a pejorative term when describing Twitter in a new issue of Rolling Stone, according to Page Six.

Says the rapper/singer/songwriter: "It's gay. If one more person asks me if I have a Twitter, I'm going to tell them, 'Twitter this [bleep], mother[bleep]er.' I don't have anything to say, and what I have to say is not that relevant. Anything that is relevant, I'm going to bottle it up and then squeeze it onto a record somewhere."
