Two days since the “official” confirmation of Madonna performing at the Super Bowl, some people are speaking out against her being chosen.

Rocker and KISS frontman Gene Simmons was asked by TMZ about Madonna being chosen as the Super Bowl halftime show act and he was not pleased.

“I love all karaoke singers. “I like all the girl singers who get up and sing with tapes. Shame on you. You’ve got to have some integrity.  “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!’

“She isn’t”appropriate” for the halftime show.”

Interesting.  As we told you months ago, Madonna was goign to be the Super Bowl act. You would figure someone saying Madonna was not appropriate for the Super Bowl, it would be about her clothing and another Janet Jackson incident, not her music.

What do you think?  Does Gene Simmons have a point that Madonna will lip synch the Super Bowl and not perform live?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  Very interesting stance by Gene……

    Can’t wait to see Madge doin Superbowl! By the way, she won’t be able to beat Prince’s performance back in 2007!

  2. Most artists today lip sync or just sing along with a pre-recorded track.Now that’s talent?!Gene needs to get his facts straight before he goes running his mouth!One thing I have always had respect for was the fact that Madonna gave you a great show!She danced and gave you her all!She may not have sounded studio perfect because she was dancing and singing at the same time!I don’t care how perfect a show sounds as long as they entertain & do their best!Seems to me this is just a publicity stunt since noone is paying Gene any mind.I wonder what Madonna will have to say about this…then again she may not even acknowledge it!lmao

    I could see if it was coming from someone with a stellar career and indelible contribition to music. But Gene Simmons? Come on!?!?! How many number one songs of Kiss can U name??

    Looking forward to hear her response to that.

    They should just keep it real and ask Prince to perform again.

    As long as Madonna doesn’t use her fake British accent I’d rather hear her than Gene Simmons.

    Sorry but Im not amped to see Madonna…. I dunno if I would say she is an inappropriate choice though… just a BLAH choice…. Im not a fan…..
    looks like I will be killin more wings on the half then! And blasting my own music at home!

    She the biggest selling and most successful female artist of all time with a near 30 year career. If anyone’s appropriate, Madonna is. Deal with it!

    I love KISS. but he(Gene) can be such an asshole sometimes. but I don’t give a fuck with he says. lmao

  9. Gary H.S.

    He’s just mad cause KISS will never get invited to do it. While not a huge fan of Madonna she’s more than proven herself to be a real singer and artist. Why even bother asking him what he thinks, his opinion is irrelevant.
