Kiss frontman, Gene Simmons, appeared on Fox where he was talking, gave a weather report, all sorts of stuff.
Then Maria Bartiromo decided it’d be a good idea to ask him about the Harvey Weinstein scandal… you know because he’s a long time rock n roll star and probably has some interesting stories to tell… it didn’t quite go like that, however.
Simmons was apparently having some sort of “senior moment,” and he reverted to his stage persona.
“The lunatics have taken over the insane asylum when respected business entities such as yourself ask guys that like to stick their tongues out,” Simmons answered, “what I think of Harvey Weinstein.”
“Okay, I’m a powerful and attractive man, and what I’m about to say is deadly serious,” he continued. “Men are jackasses. From the time we’re young we have testosterone. I’m not validating it or defending it.”
It didn’t stop there. His next stop was the 14th floor of the building, where he was due to plug a new book with the entertainment section of FoxNews.com. What he did next would actually be legend, if done in a Vegas hotel, at 2am after a concert.
Rather than just go in for his interview, Simmons barged into what turned out to be a staff meeting, and then acted the fool.
“Hey chicks, sue me!” he shouted, and then pulled open his red velvet shirt to reveal his chest and belly, according to the source. Then he starting telling Michael Jackson pedophilia jokes, and then bopped two employees on the head with his book, making derisive comments about their comparative intelligence according to the sound their heads made when struck.
“It was pretty severe,” the source said.
The interview with FoxNews.com was taped, but they’ve decided against using it.
