Kid Rock has deep thoughts on guns, abortion, “rap rock” and more

It’s been nearly four years since this site has reported on Kid Rock, and for good reason – he’s a fucking idiot. What he’s been doing since our last story is anyone’s guess – probably terrorizing “real America” in myriad ways, no doubt. For some reason, The Guardian thought it’d be a great idea to let him terrorize us even more by letting him write his own column about… nothing and everything. Here are some highlights in which Kid talks about being a redneck, his right to call shit “gay” when he wants, and more:

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.

I’m not just wealthy, I’m loaded. I can say that because I’m not embarrassed – I’ve made a fuck-ton of money, but I’ve never made a dishonest dollar. I try to do right by the people around me.

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.

My success with women picked up around the 14 millionth record I sold. I know what it was about – I don’t exactly look like Brad Pitt. I learned to be careful. I didn’t want 10 kids around. But there have been a lot of women. I could have set a better example for my son. When he was a teenager I’d bring home girls that he had more in common with than I did.

I don’t smoke much weed, it makes me dumb. But they should legalise and tax everything: pot, cocaine, heroin. Has it not been proven that people will always find a way to get what they want?

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.

Rap-rock was what people wanted at the time, and they still love those songs at shows. 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.

I just… I’m sort of dumbfounded, but not really – I mean, it is Kid Rock we’re talking about here, not the next Nobel Prize winner. His views on things are so… simplistic, so ignorant. Like, I get that he’s a redneck and he’s very proud of keeping that culture alive, but… wow.

Also, how on God’s green earth is Kid Rock so loaded? I mean, maybe in his heyday, sure, but NOW? Seriously?

  • I actually quite like Kid Rock. He says some dumb stuff, but he says it consistently enough that I think he at least believes it. He just has this massive chip on his shoulder re:gold-diggers and that speaks to self-esteem issues. But he’ll peel your wig back if you disrespect him

  • Yea, I don’t get the Kid Rock hate. He is who he is and even though the politically correct can’t agree with his views and his attitude, at least he’s honest enough for people to form an opinion. He’s not pretending to be something better, something sellable and even if I don’t agree with some of his views, I can at the very least appreciate that.

  • agreed. kid is dumb sometimes but he stays true to himself seems pretty down,to earth. most of hollywood today are the spoiled brats of filthy rich already in showbiz. he got that good ole rags to riches story being discovered on the street. he charges $20 for concerts and lets vets in free. ppl say its bc he sucks but even if he was a current chart topper hed never charge like beyonce and jay z

  • I too like Kid Rock. He doesn’t filter his stuff through a publicist first to ensure he is saying just the right thing. I would much rather know what someone truly believes and politely disagree than be led down a primrose path and find out after the fact that they are a raging bigot, etc.

  • He’s always been an a-hole but he’s never much cared what anyone thinks about him. I think he’s pretty good at keeping it real and prefer this to some crap he was rehearsed to say by some PR firm.

  • I can’t hate on a dude who bitch slapped Tommy Lee like the little bitch he is. Kid Rock scored major points for that in my book!

  • Seriously, no name writer of this article, I think much more of Kid than I do you. He’s honest. God help someone who’s conservative, owns guns, and doesn’t bow to the PC police. He’s way less freakish than you H’wood types.

    • Jennifer writes a lot for evilbeet you don’t need to put her down for her opinion. Don’t read her stuff then

  • Is it wrong that I love everything he said?? Sure he doesn’t talk like an elitist dictatorial Harvard grad, but honestly; who does?? I’m not okay with judging people for being down-to-earth. That just makes me an a-hole.
