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."

Having been to a number of Madonna concerts, I know that she doesn't use "tapes" when performing live.

She puts on a great performance. While I love The Who, her show will be a lot better to see than the flop they performed. She is a step up from BEP too.

What does Simmons mean by a "real band"? A bunch of no-talent wheezers like Kiss wearing makeup and stupid costumes?

And Gene Simmons the king of man-sluts who brags about having screwed THOUSANDS of women and is a shameless money whore is a good role model?

When I heard Madonna was singing at the SB I said out loud, WTF??? MADONNA???? She has no business at the SB. I am sure all those hard core east coast fans DON'T listen to Madonna. I really don't see those guys w/the painted letters on their chests in a snow storm poppin in "like a prayer" I agree w/mighty mad. AC/DC is a great idea or how about Metallica? Anyway I know what I'll be doing during halftime, cleaning the kitchen.

Who the hell hired this no talent hack for the superbowl? The last 10 years of superbowl entertainment have sucked out loud. It's time to find a new employee. Or is he the dame dude that plays the same five/six songs over and over for every game?!

I love how 90% of the negative comments are from woman - as if you hens actually watch the game. And Gene... I've been to several Madonna concerts and there are NO LIP SYNCING! U friggin uninformed, washed up, pubic hair headed, no talent to have a hit on your own, jealous *******. KISS will play halftime when hell freezes over.

I have to agree with Gene here. Football fans don't want to hear a bunch of pop music and lip syncing. Bring in a real band or just ax the halftime show completely they've sucked lately anyways.
