BOOM: Kid Rock Confirms Senate Run While Trashing Mainstream Media
There have been rumors swirling around that Kid Rock is going to run for US Senate, and today he confirmed it with a press release titled, “Once again the press is wrong“, where he stated:
Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..
Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!
“I am the captain now.” #fakenews #kidrockforsenate #kidrock #podunk #greatestshowonearth
Personally, I think Kid Rock has a chance at actually winning. He’s a person that has constantly redefined his persona over the years, always able to fit in with different crowds. The first I had heard a song from Kid Rock, it was long before he was a rock star — he used to be a rapper. I first heard him when he was featured on an Insane Clown Posse track:
If someone can successfully transition from DJ to rapper to a cowboy-hat-wearing rock star, I think he might have a good feeling for how to tap into what America wants in a politician, in this day and age.
Good luck, Kid.
