If it wasn’t obvious already, Kid Rock is NOT running for a Michigan Senate seat next year. He confirmed that it was a joke in a radio interview yesterday, and he actually kind of mocked the people who believed him.
He said, “[Eff] no, I’m not running for [U.S.] Senate. Are you [effing] kidding me? Who [effing] couldn’t figure that out? I’m releasing a new album on November 3rd or something like tha. I’m going on tour too . . . [eff] no!”
There’s been talk of Kid running as a Republican against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow in the 2018 election for the past eight months. A lot of people knew it was a joke, even Ted Nugent called it, but others were duped.
Of course, Kid spent a lot of time LYING about it, including in July when he ripped the media for calling it a publicity stunt, and insisted, “This is NOT a hoax.” But to recap, this WAS a publicity stunt, and it WAS a hoax.
So, who’s slingin’ the fake news now? And just to be clear, there was NEVER a time when he was sincere about it.
He said, “Someone said I was going to run for Senate in Michigan and I’m like, ‘[Eff] it, let’s get some signs made.’ We start going with it, and everyone gets their panties in a bunch! I have people that work for me, they’re on the in, I’m like, ‘[Eff] no, we’re not doing it, but let’s roll with it for a little while.’ I’m like, ‘This is awesome!’ And I have one of them call me, and he goes, ‘Dude is this really happening?’ I’m like, ‘You’re in the in! What the [eff] are you talking about!?'”
The new album he’s hyping is called “Sweet Southern Sugar”, and it does come out on November 3rd. It’s available for pre-order now. His tour is called the ‘Greatest Show on Earth,’ and it’ll kick off on January 19th. Tickets go on sale next week.
