Kid Rock goes off when asked if he uses Twitter

Never did I think I’d say this, but I really heart Kid Rock. It turns out you don’t have to do much to get me to change my opinion about you – just hate something I hate and together we’ll be best buds. Or I will at least write nicer articles about you, in the case of Kid. Turns out my new BFF hates Twitter. We’re soul mates. That’s all it takes, right there. No, he seriously hates it. Like, if you ask him about it, he’s going to sock you in the face. I have the kind of ear-to-ear grin on my face that you only get with true love.

COUNT Kid Rock out as a fan of Twitter. “It’s gay. If one more person asks me if I have a Twitter, I’m going to tell them, ‘Twitter this [bleep], mother[bleep]er,’ ” the shaggy-haired rocker tells Rolling Stone. “I don’t have anything to say, and what I have to say is not that relevant. Anything that is relevant, I’m going to bottle it up and then squeeze it onto a record somewhere.”

You know how Pepe Le Pew would get those hearts in his eyes after he saw that girl cat that he thought was a hot skunk? That’s absolutely what I’ve got going on right now. Kid Rock is my hot skunk. Don’t laugh, this feels real to me.

So I was thinking… John Mayer is an epic twitterer. Kid Rock, an epic puncher. Mayer is also an attention whore, and Rock certainly has his moments. There are few things I’ve wanted more than a Kid Rock/John Mayer feud. Hopefully ending with Mayer getting socked in the eye. Or nose. Or mouth. Really, anything above the neck or below the belt would be fine.

Somehow, we need to get John Mayer to say something douchy about Kid Rock on Twitter. Then Kid, being unable to respond via Twitter – and preferring to do things old school like a real man anyway – will accost Mayer outside Pinkberry and beat him upside the head. Or just exchange scary, frightening words. Presumably TMZ will be there, since I think they keep at least two guys on the Pinkberry/Millions of Milkshakes beat at all times. John will naturally be twittering/annoying the crap out of me from the hospital, but it’ll be worth it.

    FINALLY! Something I can agree about with Kid Rock! Never thought I’d type those words. And while I don’t agree with his choice of adjectives (I would’ve used “stupid,” “infantile,” “pointless waste of time,” etc. instead) I still agree with the sentiment. Twitter is for twats.

  2. Big Mama says:

    I couldn’t agree with you more Tia C.!!!

    But wouldn’t that make all those Twitter-ers “Twatters”?

  3. princess pee says:

    I don’t like Twitter. I don’t love John Mayer or anything, but if there was going to be a schoolyard fight between them, I’d have to side with John. I really strongly dislike Kid Rock. Really a lot. That said… if John would win the fight, I’d totally watch Kid Rock get beat down. He’s earned it.

    Twitter is for self-absorbed morons who actually think people give a fuck that you’re getting a Latte at 2:34 p.m.

  5. Susette says:

    Never thought much about Kid Rock, but I’m with him on this one. I hate Twitter. I can’t wait until it fades away and has its place taken by something equally annoying. I might feel differently if any of the celebs that twitter were remotely interesting, but they’re not.

  6. manda says:

    to Annie–that’s a little bit harsh, obviously you have some strong feelings about twitter. What, no one wants to follow you?

  7. Sudini says:

    I TOTALLY agree with you Annie – thank you for putting that so well, lol. The whole drive behind Twitter is self absorption. It’s the “look what I can do!” of the internet. But way less interesting. Ugh, I loathe Twitter and the boring, self absorbed people it attracts.

  8. manda says:

    I just think it’s weird that people have such strong feelings about something that is so easily ignored.

  9. Melissa says:

    Its not easily ignored when it works its way into every tv show, news show, magazine/newspaper article, webpage and conversation! I don’t care what kind of toilet paper anyone is buying, or about how much they (pretend to)hate the way they look in a picture they insist on posting for the world to see or why it is so difficult to choose which pair of shoes to wear today. I enjoy reading celebrity gossip sites in order to be able to participate in pop culture conversations with others but unfortunately twitter has made everyday down to earth people become just as self-absorbed as celebrities and that’s sad. Not everybody that uses twitter is like that but that’s really the purpose of it.

    “Kid Rock is my hot skunk”

    It doesn’t get any better than that. You deserve a pulitzer!

  11. really says:

    I would hate twitter if I ever used it, which I have not. Kid Rock is awesome, his statement was perfect, and I would love to see him kick John Mayer’s sissy behind!

  12. Annie says:

    Yes, that’s exactly it. Because I base my self-worth on the number of followers I have on a site called Twitter.

  13. I Choose Me says:

    Can I join in on the twitter hate? I’ll say one thing though, the name is appropriate. Twitter is for twits.
    …& er twats. Thanks Tia C. Lol

  14. NateGriffin says:

    doesn’t he look like a wet rat?

    “why would a wet rat twitter?” (trying saying this 5 times)

  15. Catherine says:

    Twitter is as stupid as facebook. Its all a bunch of pointless self-promotion of people’s mediocre lives.

  16. valupack says:

    Love the Kid and he is so right! Never understood twitter. However I would twitter now (if I was to twitter) that I’m making tollhouse cookies and you’re all invited!

  17. lola says:

    never in a million years would i date the likes of kid rock.

  18. lola says:

    twitter is for the lonely who have nothing else to do but tell others they are cooking or washing up, or show their wifes panyies. Just plain stupid. Fell sorry for people who feel need to stay connected with people they don’t know. How about a hobbie, sports, a book, etc. Twitter is for the birds.

  19. Ben says:

    Twitter should die. I seriously hate it. It’s the most narcissistic, self promoting piece of shit I’ve come across.
    Kid Rock is now my hero.
    Youtube Kid Rock – Steal Everything
    It is golden too, these two things have completely changed my mind on him.

  20. Jen says:

    Apparently I’ve been living in a cave somewhere and have managed to be completely oblivious to Twitter – or maybe I just blocked it out I don’t know. Anyway I think my ignorance in this matter is justifiably blissful

  21. Lyla says:

    I agree w/him on the twitter point. However, he is still the world’s biggest poseur.

    I don’t think people on twitter are necessarily losers. I don’t get its appeal but…it really is just a concentrated form of the facebook/myspace status update or the AIM away message. It’s like endless away messages/status updates. Boring to me, but apparently a lot of people like it.

  22. Jane says:

    Yeah, calling Twitter “Gay” is something we should all get on board.

  23. Hugh G Rection says:

    Everyone is missing the point. Twitter is obviously gay but just because a no talent hack like twig pebble says so doesn’t make him any more talented. Looks like he hitched his star to another female who is much more talented than him tonight. Martina, are you stoned?
