Kid Rock Allegedly Waves Gun Around During Rolling Stone Interview

Kid Rock Allegedly Waves Gun Around During Rolling Stone Interview

Kid Rock is alleged to have waved a gun in front of a reporter during an interview with Rolling Stone last month. The singer is also said to have repeatedly used the N-word, attempting to goad the reporter into a physical fight.

A column recently published in Rolling Stone sees David Peisner, the reporter, describing the incident in detail.

Peisner says he visited Rock at his Nashville ranch last month for an interview, during which the Detroit rocker discussed his embracement of Donald Trump and right-wing culture wars.

Peisner says that at one point, the heavily drunk Rock pulled out a black handgun and waved it in front of his face "to make some sort of point."

"And I got a f***ing goddamn gun right here if I need it!" Rock reportedly shouted. "I got them everywhere!"

He also allegedly used the N-word several times, including when discussing how the Republicans were the party that "freed the f***ing slaves."

The reporter claims that Rock blocked his multiple attempts to leave the studio, at one point even asking if he wanted to fight.

"Do you think you could whup the shit out of me?" he allegedly asked Peisner, who responded, "Probably not." Rock then replied, "You can take a shot if you want."

Finally, Rock reportedly asked Peisner to write the "most horrific article" about him as "a favor."

"Would you do me a favor? Just write the most horrific article about me. Do it. It helps me," he is reported as saying. "Will you tell everyone that I was halfway cool?"

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder Slams Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder Slams Chiefs Kicker Harrison Butker

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder recently slammed Harrison Butker, taking a shot at the Kansas City Chiefs kicker's recent controversial commencement speech at Benedictine College.

The rocker expressed his feelings about Butker's beliefs in no uncertain terms during Pearl Jam's concert at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday (May 18). He was strongly against the athlete's assertion that women should prioritize raising families instead of pursuing careers outside of the home.

"There should be pride in homemaking, whether you're a man or woman," Vedder said. "It's maybe one of the hardest jobs and you should definitely take pride in it. But you shouldn't not follow a dream because you think . you're going to benefit by giving up your dreams? I couldn't understand the logic."

"He was telling men, 'Don't forget to puff up your chest and be more masculine, don't lose your masculinity,'" he continued. "The irony was that when he was saying that, he looked like such a f-king p-y. There's nothing more masculine than a strong man supporting a strong woman."

Butker, who took the stage at Benedictine's May 11 commencement ceremony, condemned President Joe Biden, abortion, birth control, Pride Month and "the cultural emasculation of men" before discouraging the female graduates in attendance from "thinking about all of the promotions and titles" they would soon get in their careers.

"I would venture to guess that the majority of you are most excited about your marriage and the children you will bring into this world," the NFL player added. "I can tell you that my beautiful wife, Isabelle, would be the first to say her life truly started when she started living her vocation as a wife and as a mother."

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Shares New Solo Single 'A.F. Day'

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian Shares New Solo Single 'A.F. Day'

System Of A Down's Serj Tankian recently shared a new single, "A.F. Day," from his upcoming solo album.

"This is a song I wrote in the early days of SOAD that I never released. The majority of the instrumentation and vocals are recordings from that time. Dystopian in mood, it's a reflection of the angst and anti-authoritarian attitude I had to conformity," Tankian said in a press release.

"Why do religions require from their faithful blind and questioning servitude?/ If thy path is so righteous, then why the use of forcing all attitude," Tankian sings in the chorus of "A.F. Day, which stands for " Another F***ing Day."

An accompanying music video features Tankian performing the song alongside members of his backing band, The F.C.C.

Tankian recently announced his new solo EP, called Foundations, which will follow his 2013 solo album, Orca.

"We're doing an EP called Foundations, which is music from different eras of my career," Tankian said in a recent Stereogum interview. "We're starting with the release of a song called 'A.F. Day' that's at least 25 years old. They're from early System days that I've never worked out with System and [they're] punk rock, kind of metal, heavy songs."

"So I mean, how do they interrelate?" he continued. "I don't know. I don't see music or lyrics interrelating much. I've included them within the memoir, in terms of reflecting back and doing some explanations, but I don't know how else they relate."

Foundations EP will be released this fall via Gibson Records.
