Kid Rock Says Celebrities Should Stay Quiet About Politics

Kid Rock spoke with CMT Insider about his belief celebrities should stay out of sharing their opinion about political matters. “I truly believe that people like myself, who are in a position of entertainers in the limelight, should keep their mouth shut on politics,” the Detroit rocker said. “Because at the end of the day, let me tell you what I ‘m good at: I’m good at writing songs and singing. What I’m not educated in is the field of political science. And so for me to be sharing my views and influencing people of who I think they should be voting for … I think would be very irresponsible on my part. So I’ll just keep my mouth shut on that. I think celebrity endorsements hurt politicians. Because as soon as somebody comes out for a politician, especially in Hollywood, when they all go, ‘I’m voting for this guy!’ — I go, ‘That’s not who I’m voting for!’ … As soon as Oprah Winfrey pops up and goes ‘Ha-la-la-la-la,’ I’m like, ‘I love Barrack Obama. I hate Oprah Winfrey.’ I don’t hate her. I just don’t believe in her, so I don’t want any part of any of that. I think celebrities hurt politicians.” Check out the full story here.

Liam Gallagher Adding Spongebob Squarepants Portrait To His Collection

The Sun reports Liam Gallagher has commissioned an artist to paint him a massive portrait of Spongebob Squarepants to be placed in the Oasis frontman’s living room alongside images of Elvis and Jimi Hendrix. “SpongeBob is a fu**ing mental, full-of-beans, enthusiastic sponge that lives at the bottom of the sea in Bikini Bottom. He’s mad for it,” Liam explained. “He’s got a mate called Squidward, who plays the clarinet and is grumpy like our kid Noel. I’m having a huge painting done at the minute, a proper Andy Warhol-style portrait of SpongeBob. He’ll be facing Elvis and Hendrix in the living room.”

Pete Wentz Prepares To Become A Father

As Pete Wentz prepares to become a father, the Fall Out Boy bassist spoke with People magazine about what his father told him he should prepare for. “The best advice my dad has given me was, go with your gut,” Wentz said at his Angels & King nightspot in Chicago. “And he said you can’t really have expectations. If I have expectations that he’s going to be a rock star, I’m sure he’ll come out being into sports, and if I have expectations that he’ll be into sports then he’ll be into math or something.” Read more.

Pete Wentz Talks To Unborn Baby All The Time

Velvet Revolver Hint Plans To Announce New Vocalist Soon

Following the decision by Scott Weiland to quit Velvet Revolver to return to his prior group Stone Temple Pilots in early April, drummer Matt Sorum spoke with Artisan News Service about the group’s plans to replace Weiland. “We’re coming out with something in a couple of weeks and I think it’s going to surprise everybody,” Sorum teased. “It’s exciting. We’re moving forward. We’re going to keep going and play rock ‘n’ roll and get a new guy singing, so we did it before we’ll do it again.”

He added, “We’re really seriously thinking about doing something online. Yeah, we got offered a couple of different television ideas you know. [TV producer] Mark Burnett called us and asked us to do that ‘Rock Star’ thing and we basically said no to that. We didn’t feel it was right for us. No disrespect to him, but it just didn’t feel right for what we want to do. As many years as we’ve tried to keep our integrity intact, we felt that wasn’t the right forum for us to do it, so we got some ideas and we should have that news in a couple weeks.”

Update From The Academy Is… Bassist Adam T. Siska

The Academy Is… bassist Adam T. Siska checked in with fans on the group’s MySpace blog on Thursday (April 17), discussing his brother Jason’s participation on the latest edition of ‘Survivor’ among other topics. He writes:

Hey everybody! It’s yours truly, Adam T. Siska.

My friends and I have been enjoying our time here in Los Angeles. However, I must say the temperature is very unpredictable here, sometimes very nice during the day, but very cold in the evenings.

Over the weekend, I took a drive up to Big Bear, California and enjoyed the great outdoors. One day I think I will get a horse and go live up in the mountains, and spend my days wrestling bears and cookin’ up s’mores.

As some of you may know, I am big supporter of the Chicago Bulls. Yes, I am pretty bummed at the fact that they didn’t make the playoffs this season. But I am pretty excited to see what happens this year in the playoffs, its been an exciting year in West, and I’m excited to see what the Celtics are all about. Anyway… enough ESPN talk…

All in all, life is good, I can’t complain. At seems as though the weather is getting better and that makes me happy. I look forward to summertime, and all of the excitement lying ahead.

We have been working hard on Album Number 3 and we can’t wait for you to hear it.

In other news… hasn’t my brother been awesome on Survivor? I hope you all have been watching my Survivor videos on FRIENDS OR ENEMIES. That dude Ozzy has got a lot of nerve to be talking sh** on my brother. It goes to show that talk is cheap. Ozzy looked like an idiot when my brother dominated him last week. We will see who comes out on top in the end…. I’ll give you a hint, his name rhymes with JASON.

Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day.
Until next time…
