MJ Tribute Concert

Gene Simmons to Perform

Despite Calling MJ a Pedophile

8/15/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Tribute Concert
Pretty ironic -- Gene Simmons, who called Michael Jackson a hard-core pedophile, will perform at the MJ Tribute Concert.

Katherine Jackson was on CNN this AM, talking about the concert, when promoters revealed that KISS would be performing.

Yet Gene Simmons went on record last year -- mind you, a year after MJ died -- saying, "There is no question in my mind he molested those kids.  Not a doubt."

Simmons went on to say, "The only sexual references ever made about Michael Jackson that were made by anyone, anywhere around the world, have always been made by kids, and specifically males usually 10 to 14 years of age; never females, that age or older, and never grown men."

Hate the man.  Love the music.

Don't you think, considering his recent allegations, that Corey Feldman would have said something about Michael Jackson? Didn't they used to hang around together? If Michael was abusive, I don't think Corey would continue to cover for him.

I wouldn't be surprise if Bashir, Oprah, Diane Saywer, Dimond and let's not forget The Arv*z*s showed up also to say how much they loved Michael. Hypocrites. It's all for M.O.N.E.Y.
Michael was all for L.O.V.E. Sad.

Like someone said, they might as well have invited Murray too! But, he'll be in court attending trial for the death of Michael Jackson. And, due to this concert, noone will be there in support of Michael. Mainly his his family. The jury will take that into consideration. What are they thinking? If Michael's family does not care enough to be there, then why should the jury care about whether Murray is guilty or not?

Rumor has it that Gene Simmons and Kiss have been dropped from the Tribute Concert.

All the Gene Simmons bashing is really missing the point. It's well known that Simmons is a businessman first and an "artist" last. This is not a surprise. He's in it mainly for the money ... and the groupies.

Of course, all the hateful and insulting (and in a few cases, anti-Semitic) comments directed at Simmons by the fans of the man who supposedly wanted to unite the world in love and peace ... is priceless.

UnWell is the rabid. Day and nite harassing people and reposting crap that he has posted like a zillion times already.

You need to check yourself Greg and stop harassing and stalking me.

Gene is so full of sh&t it's unreal. A phony ass, money/attention whore. In a half a tribute band. Sad how low he has got over the years....

well i just wonder what kind of person would trash a dead man for fifteen minutes of attn and then agree to pay tribute to the man he defamed for another fifteen minutes of attn?
didnt gene simmons start off as an educator in nyc?
i am not sure but i think i read that somewhere.if true ,some educator..pfft
he knows what he said about mj was not true..he just didnt care , just like nikki sixx or stixx..i dont even know his actual name..
but at any rate , when simmons had an opportunity to place his name in the same VICINITY as the amazing michael jackson he jumped in with two feet..
the true nature of the people who denigrated mj for profit is coming out more and more .
the true nature of michael jackson as a wonderful humanitarian who was vilified for profit is becoming more evident every day..
i wonder what selfless things gene simmons has done? nothing that i can think of off the top of my head.
they should have people playing who were of the same humanitarian spirit that mj was. they cant match his talent , but they could honor the spirit of the man..
imo i dont think they can getr enough mj fans to go along with this thing so they are getting des[erate to fill the place
