Gene Simmons: "Gaga can do it. Madonna cannot"




-not happy with pop charts / looks forward to death of rap
-feels today's rappers lack lyric & melody
-claims rock is dead but not all hope is lost
-"As far as I'm concerned, if Lady Gaga dropped the disco and the pole dancing and all that stuff and put together a rock band, that would be legitimate, because she's got the musical goods. She can write songs, play instruments and can actually sing. And she understands the fearless quality of spectacle. I'd love to see her do Queen-style music. She can do it. Madonna cannot."
-"My thing about the disco divas who get up onstage — and I love Jennifer Lopez and Ciara and Shakira and Madonna and all the girls with names that end in 'a,' they're very talented in their own way — but it's dishonest. They have a backing track. It's really a karaoke bar. Karaoke is more honest, because you know it's karaoke.'"
-continues to ignorantly drag rap
