Gene Simmons: Britney earned her money ‘the hard way’
It hasn’t been long since Britney Spears was a free woman, out of guardianship.
Meanwhile, millions of people have commented on the situation, including celebrities like Lady Gaga and Cher. Now, another vocal person has thrown their hat into the ring: none other than KISS frontman Gene Simmons.
Outspoken Simmons had nothing but good things to say about Spears, who herself has sold tens of millions of albums and graced the biggest stages.
“Britney Spears will sit for a high-profile deposition…that is if her dad gets what he wants because Jamie Spears’ attorney emailed Britney’s attorney asking to fix a date for a deposition”, according to TMZ.
And Simmons responded by saying, “Okay. This is usually not an area I comment on. But there. @Britney Spears earned her money the hard way – she worked for it… No one, including parents and family, should have a say in her finances. Period.”
Some may be surprised at Simmons’ positive feedback given his sometimes harsh takes, but the musician calls it as he sees it, good, bad, and/or funny.
A recent post included a comment on the new Mini Mouse outfit in which Simmons offered, “I’m not a fan of the new look. What do you say… and don’t make it a political issue. We’re all sick and tired of this stuff anyway. Just say whether you like it or not.
A few months ago, Simmons had more serious comments about the COVID-19 outbreak.
Speaking to TalkShopLive on November 10, KISS frontman Gene Simmons shared his views regarding COVID-19 and vaccinations.
Simmons said, “If you’re willing to walk among us unvaccinated, you’re an enemy.”
“I don’t care what your political beliefs are,” Simmons added, speaking of the tour dates KISS had to reschedule after he and bandmate Paul Stanley, both vaccinated, contracted the disease through “breakthrough” cases.
“You’re not allowed to infect anyone just because you think you have delusional rights,” Simmons, 72, said. “You are not allowed to run a red light. In fact, the government has the right to tell you to stop.
“If they tell you you can’t smoke in a building, you can’t smoke in a building. And it’s not because they want to take away your rights, it’s because the rest of us hate it. We don’t want to smell your smoke.
“I don’t want to catch your disease. I don’t want to risk my life just because you want to run a red light. This whole idea, this delusional, devilish idea that you can do whatever you want and the rest of the world be damned is really terrible.
Simmons stressed that his opinion is not political, but based on science and health. In fact, he criticized both political parties, calling them “bad guys” for spreading “all kinds of nonsense.”
He said, “I don’t like either one. Politics is the enemy. Humanism and humanity is what we should all care about. Love your neighbor as yourself.
“For God’s sake, if I have to yawn in your presence, I’m going to put my hand over my mouth. Yawning is not a life-threatening event. Your COVID could be a life-threatening event, and I don’t want to catch it.
Simmons noted that more than 5 million people have died from the COVID-19 virus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
He added, likely referring to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who recently tested positive for COVID-19 after telling the media he had been vaccinated (Rodgers is not vaccinated): “I I don’t care if you play football or not – stay away from evil people who don’t care about your health.
