ANOTHER HERO IN HOLLYWOOD
Kitty Litter dropped a link into my inbox this morning about an interview done by Gene Simmons of "Kiss." If you're familiar with "Kiss," you know they're about as far out there as you can get, but if you've ever watched Simmons on his show, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," you'll also know he's a down-to-earth kinda guy. Solid.
In this interview, Simmons talks about our military, the war, airport security and profiling, as well as Hollywood in general. Here's a snip of his comments on Sean Penn:
So someone like Sean Penn for instance ... you don't support what he's doing?
Oh, I think he's the enemy of Western civilization. I think he's a terrific actor, but a political knucklehead. By the way, the difference between the Warren Beattys and Sean Penns and perhaps the Hannitys in the salons of the world is very little. The people who hate you don't care what political side you're on. They make no distinction between far left and far right. They just hate you. It's so stupid. And the biggest problem, of course, is that media, no matter what you say, is skewed a certain way.
Gene Simmons "gets it." My new hero? You bet!!
