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."

Different Rules Apply    

Madonna needs to retire gracefully. She never really could sing, she can dance, but she is not a true raw talent. She is a great businesswoman and was able to market herself and for that she is famous. Let it go Madge, you had a good run, but you are risking being the Brett Favre of music if you keep pushing it.

People be careful, some of the spam on the posts leads to porn sites with very young (minors?) . Might get you thrown in prison for what you see.

How about the footage I just saw of you from "The Paul Lynde Show", where you OBVIOUSLY were lip syncing during "Detroit Rock City"? We won't go into your bass playing abilities....
