Gene Simmons Says Celebs Should 'Shut Their Pieholes' About Politics

Gene Simmons

(Classic Rock) Outspoken KISS star Gene Simmons says one of the few things he won't discuss is his political views. And as the US presidential election looms, he believes celebrities should "all shut their pieholes" when it comes to giving voting advice.

Asked about big names expressing political opinions, he responds: "They should all shut their pieholes. I really believe democracy doesn't work well when celebrities butt their heads into places they don't belong.

"Katy Perry, Gene Simmons, Chubby Checker - I don't care who you are, you've got influence, and your fans tend sometimes to do stuff they would normally not do, just because they're your fans.

"It's worth noting that when you go into a voting booth there's a curtain. It's nobody's damn business who you're voting for." Read more here.
