Someone call the Beygency — there’s an unconverted rock star on the run. Actually, it’s not too big a surprise. Kid Rock comes off as a big skeptic of mainstream pop in his Rolling Stone cover story, and Beyoncé isn’t spared. But he didn’t find it in his heart to at least limit his criticism to her music.
He told Rolling Stone he is “flabbergasted” by Beyoncé worship, saying, “Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a fucking ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice fucking ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really fucking do much for me.”
Perhaps Rock doesn’t hang around with many fans of “Crazy in Love” or “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” or “Drunk in Love.”
He has been hanging around with the likes of Hank Williams, Jr. and Bob Seger, the latter of which wrote “F.O.A.D.” (aka, Fuck Off and Die) for Rock’s new album First Kiss. He also bought his 500-acre property in Troy, Ala., from a tip from Williams — sight unseen — to go along with his houses in Michigan, Malibu and Nashville.
