This is not about the show, but it is about Gene Simmons

Gene Simmons slams Madonna over Super Bowl halftime show

Just two days after it was confirmed that Madonna will take the center stage in the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show, reality star and fellow performer Gene Simmons has slammed the pop star's participation.

"I love all karaoke singers," a sarcastic Simmons said when a TMZ cameraman brought up the subject of the Super Bowl performance. "I like all the girl singers who get up and sing with tapes. Shame on you."

The KISS frontman then launched into a full rant against any artist who isn't the "real" deal.

"You've got to have some integrity," he said. "I don't care what your music is. Have some integrity -- be real or full disclosure before the fact. Hold up a sign saying, 'Seventy percent of what you hear is fake. It's a tape. I'm a karaoke singer.' Say it!'

After offering some half-hearted praise for the pop icon ("By the way, Madonna's terrific"), Simmons continued his rant, adding that she wasn't "appropriate" for the halftime show.

I completely agree with Mr. Simmons take on this. I have never thought lip syncing a live concert presentation as respectable. I had arguments at the other forum about this. If I'm paying good money to see you perform, don't give me some fake lip syncing.

Madonna is good performer. Let's hear your real voice. If you can't dance and sing at the same time, get off the stage.

Helloooooooo... P!nk... g'head... tell those losers how it's done.
