Not one for biting his tongue, is he?
Gene Simmons' ridiculously massive tongue has got him into trouble once again, after he made insensitive comments regarding Prince's death. He has, at least, now apologized, but that hasn't stopped some Prince fans lashing out at the rocker for calling the deceased pop star 'pathetic'.

Gene Simmons has responded to N.W.A.’s Hall of Fame comments.
"I am looking forward to the death of rap,” Simmons said. “I’m looking forward to music coming back to lyrics and melody, instead of just talking. A song, as far as I'm concerned, is by definition lyric and melody … or just melody.”

Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have called the incident "blatantly untrue" and a "misunderstanding."
Kiss musicians Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have hit back at claims made by actor Eric Stonestreet alleging that the rockers were rude to his mother, Jamey Anne, on a flight. The Modern Family star kept his fans up to date with his mother's travels and started by posting a screenshot of an excitable text conversation with his mother when she had spotted the rock and roll superstars on her plane.
"I think Gene Simmons is on my flight," texted Jamey, adding "Do you think I should go give him a kiss?" However, things apparently soon turned sour, as Stonestreet revealed in another Instagram message.
"Turns out both Gene Simmons AND Paul Stanley were on my mom's flight to Kansas City. Gene tried to bully my mom out of her seat and when she said no, he said, 'It's ok, I just bought the plane' and then asked her for HER autograph. - d**k move... The Paul (sic) called her 'Aunt Bee' - d**k move," he wrote.

KISS venture to Sydney, Australia midway through their latest world tour.
Hard rock four-piece Kiss hit Sydney, Australia midway through their expansive 2012/2013 world tour.
As part of their highly anticipated tour, seventies rock band Kiss played a seminal show at the Allphones Arena in Sydney on Sunday (March 10th 2013). Appearing on stage in all their shock rock glamour were rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley (aka The Starchild), bassist Gene Simmons (aka The Demon), lead guitarist Tommy Thayer (aka The Spaceman) and drummer Eric Singer (aka Catman) and there was no sense of age even with their declining record sales over recent years as they gave it their all on the Australian stage.
Lindsay Lohan's priorities have, for some years, been something of a mystery. She prioritised drinking over safe driving, she also managed to de-prioritise that odd tradition commonly known as paying-for-stuff when she stole a necklace from an LA jewellers, and recently on Twitter she prioritised tax breaks for people “listed on Forbes as 'millionaires'”. One might think this was a joke, however, she confirmed her change of political heart this week when she told reporters, published on Newsday.com, that “as of now” she would be supporting “Mitt Romney... as of now.”
This is a huge turn around from the 2008 elections in which she ardently supported Barack Obama's campaign. She even requested to volunteer for the campaign, but was rejected because, as one Democratic Aide said, she's just 'not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us' (DailyMail.com). To explain her reasons for her changed support, she said “I just think employment is really important right now." Which is certainly a valid point, but somewhat misguided. Plus, it has been reported that she asked for a tax cut from Obama- who rejected her- which points towards slightly more personal reasons for her change of heart.
Other celebrity supporters for the Republican candidate are Stacey Dash, who expressed her support via Twitter and faced a barrage of abuse for it, also music artist Nicki Minaj (who has since revealed that she was joking), Jerry Bruckheimer (responsibly for shows such as CSI and Pirates of the Caribbean), Gene Simmons, Donald Trump, Chuck Norris and lifelong Republican Clint Eastwood.
