Motley Crue's Tommy Lee Goes On A Rant

07/15/2013
.
(hennemusic) Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee took to Facebook Friday to issue a full-on rant about the definition of celebrity in 2013. The blurb began with a critique of reality tv, something Lee participated in on "Tommy Lee Goes To College" (2004) and "Rockstar Supernova" (2006).

"I'm a celebrity….really?," begins Lee. "I think that means being famous, having pissed on the world's fire hydrant, leaving your mark for years to come and making a dent in the globe the size of the hole in the ozone?

The world's view of a celeb today is the most f**ked up, watered down bullsh*t I've ever seen. I've been in this game for many years now and the abundance of lame TV shows really sets a gruesome standard. Stupid shows about finding love on national TV? Partying in Jersey? Trapped on some island? Celebrity Rehab? The B-C crew that weren't celebs in the 1st place!! Celebrity Apprentice? If you are a celeb why are you looking for an internship?"

"People wonder 'where the hell did the rock star go?' THE BOWIE's, PRINCE's, MICK JAGGER's, They're STILL here people!," Tommy continued. "There's nobody to blame but our own silly ass! We watch the sh*t like fans at an Indianapolis 500 race where folks only go just to wait for a fiery crash and burn! Ok I admit I do it too…but for the love of Jesus, I know it's not right. Do you? Really? And these people who have their few episodes of airtime go on to host parties, sell perfumes, wonder why they're not bigger than they are? They wonder why their "stars" don't continue to "rise." WOW!"

"Do you guys remember the days of talent?," writes the drummer. "Something God gave you, or YOU crafted it into something special that people wanted to go see again and again! And if you were lucky and you made it, you found a way to showcase what you could do? And get paid? Getting paid for your God-given talent…that rules. I am lucky." Read the rest here.
