Kid Rock Insists Senate Idea Was Just A Publicity Stunt

Kid Rock tells Howard Stern he's not running for Senate

Kid Rock Tells Howard Stern He's Not Running for Senate After All

"Fuck no, I'm not running for Senate!" he said on Howard Stern's radio show. "Are you fucking shitting me?"

Not everyone. Rock and Stern chuckle about and endorsement from former NY governor George Pataki... suggesting that perhaps political figures should take a breath or two before jumping on a celebrity bandwagon. The tour will be in support of Rock's upcoming album, Sweet Southern Sugar, which is slated for release on November 3. "Are you f-ing sh-ing me?"

To be fair, some confusion was understandable.

Singer and rapper Kid Rock told Howard Stern in an interview Tuesday that The New York Times is "a little bit gay", and said that he watched Tucker Carlson and Bill Maher on television.

The rock star, named Robert Ritchie in real life, had started kicking around the idea over the summer, eventually launching a 'Kid Rock for Senate' website and Twitter account. "And I've gotten to see everyone's true colours".

Kid Rock said a fan once suggested he should run for Senate in MI.

Throughout the hour-long interview, Rock sarcastically mocked accusations of racism toward him.

"Yeah, I know, now you're the new racist guy", Stern responded.

"Everyone was like, 'Dude, you're the Klan wizard, '" he said. As Kid Rock also told Stern, he will only be performing Friday and Saturday nights due to his growing frustration with the music industry.

He even fired back at those who said he shouldn't open the brand new arena because taxpayers funded it.

Rock is a Republican and supporter of President Donald Trump.

"I will live in my f-cking double-wide f-cking trailer in Alabama and sell everything, not leave anything for my children or grandchildren - I'm not getting rid of that f-cking plane", he said.
