KISS and Mötley Crüe recently took aim at the 24-year-old pop star while announcing their upcoming joint tour
“We’re sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them. No karaoke singers allowed. No fake b—s—. Leave that to Rihanna-Schimianna and everybody else whose name ends with an ‘A,'” Simmons said according to Billboard.com.
Simmons, the band’s bassist, was explaining that the upcoming tour would be performed live and criticized the Bajan singer for lip synching during her performances, which Mötley Crüe drummer, Tommy Lee, echoed.
“No disrespect to Rihanna, she’s a great singer, but we’re in a slump for some s— that has some personality and appeal beyond a bunch of pop stuff that’s floating around out there,” Lee told Billboard.
“I’m glad he said that actually because I don’t think I can bear watching another f—ing award show that is just a little bit better than ‘American Idol.’ It’s f—ing pathetic to watch people go out and f—ing karaoke with a bunch of lights and video,” he added. “It’s all completely watered down.”
