Daily Caller: Gene Simmons: 2012 ticket should be Perry-Rice
Question of the Day
Two weeks after predicting that Texas Gov. Rick Perry will oust President Obama from the White House in 2012, Kiss bassist Gene Simmons suggested that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would make a fine running mate for Mr. Perry.
In a series of tweets Friday, Mr. Simmons waded back into political waters, suggesting the Perry-Rice presidential ticket.
“Met her in Stockholm & she struck me as politically savvy as anyone I’ve met in gov’mt,” Mr. Simmons wrote in another tweet. “She won’t run for VP, but this ticket is a winner.”
Earlier this month, Mr. Simmons expressed confidence that Mr. Perry would be the next president, citing his own voting history as evidence: “I voted for Pres Bush. I voted for Pres Clinton. I voted for Pres Obama. The next president will be Gov Rick Perry … Gov Perry worked for Al Gore and then switched to Republican. He will be our next President. I’ve never been wrong.”
While Mr. Simmons has faith that the Perry-Rice ticket is a winner, the rock star clarified via Twitter that he hasn’t yet announced who he’ll vote for next year.
“Hear ye, hear ye. I have never stated who I will vote for this coming Pres election,” Mr. Simmons wrote Friday. “However, I DO believe Gov Perry will surge ahead. And, said so. Today, CNN reports he’s on top of the GOP polls & he has barely run.”
Levine lashes out at MTV for network’s lack of music
Not all pop sensations worship MTV. Maroon 5 vocalist Adam Levine lashed out at the network and its Video Music Awards ceremony Saturday via Twitter for what he perceives as the channel’s lack of focus on music.
“the VMA’s [are the] one day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music,” Mr. Levine wrote. “I’m drawing a line in the sand. [Forget] you VMA’s.”
The 32-year-old, whose band didn’t receive any VMA nominations, received a response from MTV less than a half-hour after he published the emotional tweet.
