As the release date for his upcoming tenth studio album 'First Kiss' approaches (February 24th), Kid Rock seems to be more than happy to share his opinions on a number of issues regardless of who he may offend or upset.

Kid Rock recently addressed a number of controversial issues in an op-ed article

The 43-year-old singer has written an op-ed article for The Guardian addressing several topics including politics, same-sex marriages, abortion and not keeping up with today's technology.

"I don't FaceTweet or whatever people do," Rock writes. "I understand that I'm the old guy now. I turn on my computer and look at porn a little bit, see what's going on in the news, but that's about it. I'm comfortable with that."

The Grammy-nominated artist also explains how he is a young "old guy" at the age of 43, as he is about to become a grandfather. "It keeps my redneck street cred up," Rock jokes. "I could be a great-great-great-grandfather by the time I'm 80."

Although Rock considers himself a Republican when it comes to politics, he doesn't necessarily share the same views on many controversial topics as his fellow right ring supporters. "I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues," Rock continues. "I am no fan of abortion, but it's not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don't look forward to marrying gay people, but I'm not opposed to it."

Rock also seems to shamelessly slam the rap-rock as he feels the music genre "turned out to be pretty gay. If someone says you can't say 'gay' like that you tell them to go fuck themselves. You're not going to get anything politically correct out of me."

And when speaking about Barack Obama, Rock says while he was at the president's inauguration "there was an exciting sense of change in the air. That promise hasn't been fulfilled."
