Gene Simmons

BLASTS Madonna --

'Not Appropriate' for Super Bowl

12/7/2011 6:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna has no business performing at the Super Bowl ... this according to legendary KISS frontman Gene Simmons, who thinks the game would be better off with a "real band."

Simmons was leaving Boa in Hollywood last night when we asked how he felt about Madge headlining the Super Bowl halftime show -- to which Gene sarcastically replied, "I love all karaoke singers, I love all the girl singers who get up and sing with tapes ... shame on you!"

Gene added, "By the way, Madonna's terrific ... I hate the tapes."

I have a feeling that most of the "Material" will be in the form of massive amounts of filler, botox and makeup.

I completely agree, I would love to see KISS at the superbowl, but at least with Madonna performing I can go clean the kitchen during halftime!

Totally agree. The Superbowl Halftime Show needs to be renamed the Has-been Show.

Finally, this guy says something that is 100% RIGHT ON! Madonna has no business playing the Super Bowl. She is a has-been and a little long in the tooth to be performing ANYWHERE!

Gene is hilarious and good that no one takes him as an authority on anything but plastic surgery and the art of refusing to grow up. Musically, he's still in the age of "decades ago" where Madonna continues to grow. Underneath the makeup he's just another self-absorbed juvenile.

Do us a favor, Gene...Trade in the sunglasses at night for a full-size reflective face shield. This from a fugly douche that regurgitates a handful of hits from 35 years ago in a band more famous for its makeup than its music.

Girl singers? So he's ok with boy singers who sing with tapes?

He sounds like a misogynist dipshyt.

Different Rules Apply    

Funny Gene, you hate the "fake" tapes, yet you go under the knife and maintain your "fake" appearance ~ your wife also maintains a fake appearance...hmmm. Hypocrite? Do you walk around with a sign in front of you saying, "this ain't real". Huge fan of yours, but if you are in a glass house, you must be careful what you say. That being said, Rock on KISS!!
