  • 'I am a hunter and will not hesitate to shoot': Man tries to break into Kid Rock's home

    Police arrested a 43-year-old Detroit man who attempted to break into Kid Rock's home. The man, who has not been identified, was arrested at his home north of Detroit after the singer offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who could provide information on him. Prior to his arrest, Kid Rock posted surveillance images of the suspect  - who was notably wearing crutches during the attempted burglary - on his website and stated that he is an 'avid hunter and marksman' and 'will not hesitate to shoot anyone' who threatens his family. 'Don't mess with a mother****** like me,' the singer,...

    While watching the Grammy awards last Sunday, it occurred to me that American culture has been defined by music ever since the end of World War II. After the Germans and Japanese surrendered in 1945, millions of GI's returned home to marry and begin families. The big-band era of good-time music accompanied that, and romantic singers like Frank Sinatra ruled the day. In the '50s, many young people, tired of conformity, began to rebel. The rise of Elvis Presley illuminated that rebellion. Then the angst kind of died out as Chubby Checker ushered in "The Twist" in 1960, and...

    Kid Rock and Sean Penn teamed up this week to make a short movie tackling the rhetoric and stereotypes that can accompany political differences. Rock, who is a Mitt Romney supporter and recently spoke at a Paul Ryan rally, joined Penn, a supporter of President Obama and vocal political activist, in what Rock called in a tweet "a public service film." The mini-movie, titled "Americans," is co-written by Penn and Rock. It shows the two men meeting in a bar and clashing over their politically opposite opinions. "The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes...

"I also want to be real clear that I am very proud to say that we had elected our first black president," Rock said during an introduction for GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan in Michigan on Monday. "I’m sorry — I’m sorry he didn’t do a better job. "I really wish he would have. I do," continued Rock, one of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's highest-profile celebrity endorsers.

Just ask any campaign staffer or political reporter on the trail. His song "Born Free" has blasted from speakers at rallies since Romney launched his presidential bid more than a year ago, and it has been playing at Ryan events since he joined the Republican ticket.

    In one of the most interesting “What the hayell” moments in recent memory, the NAACP Detroit branch has announced that they plan to give singer Kid Rock an award at their annual Great Expectations Dinner, which typically draws 10,000 participants. The dinner is going to be held on May 1, and if recent protests are an indicator, there won’t be 10,000 people in the audience ready to celebrate. The reason that people are up in arms is because Kid Rock has often used the Confederate Flag as part of his routine on stage. The singer has argued that the flag...

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People wants to honor Kid Rock at its annual Freedom Fund dinner at Cobo Conference and Exhibition Center in Detroit. The NAACP said it wants to recognize Rock for his commitment to Detroit. However, not everyone agrees Kid Rock should be recognized by the NAACP. "Kid Rock has made the Confederate flag a symbol at all his concerts," said Adolph Mongo of Detroiters for Progress. "It's been a problem since 2005." Mongo said he and the rest of his group plan to protest the dinner if Kid Rock is honored because the...

It’s been more than 40 years in the making. To understand the significance of what is happening Tuesday, we need to go back to the mid 1960s, when Grand Rapids resident Rick Falls joined a handful of other teenage and 20-something soldiers from around...

Boyle, who became an Internet sensation after appearing on "Britain's Got Talent" in 2009, also scored a rare second-week sales increase, up 5 percent with 335,000 sales of her Christmas-themed album, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Kid Rock is part of an exclusive club whose only other members are The Beatles, Garth Brooks, and AC/DC. What do thse artists have in common? They're major artists whose music isn't sold oniTunes. In Kid Rock's case there is actually one album being sold by the online music giant, but that's just because he doesn't own the rights to it. So why doesn't he want to sell his music on iTunes? It's simple really. He sees it as simply a continuation of the way labels have treated artists for decades. In his words, "iTunes takes the money, the record...

    Organizers of President George W. Bush's inauguration are confused by reports Kid Rock has been ousted from the list of performers - because he was "never booked" in the first place. Kid Rock, real name Robert Ritchie, was recently the target of outrage from several conservative groups when it was reported the star might be included in the president's festivities. The Campaign For Children And Families sent out emails to 2.5 million supporters decrying the appearance. But organizers insist the rocker was never set to join Jojo and Hilary Duff as a performer at the January 18 youth concert, which...

"We have been informed that Kid Rock will not perform," said Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of the American Family Association. According to Wildmon, over 100,000 people called and e-mailed the Presidential Inauguration Committee to voice their concerns over news that Kid Rock was invited to perform. Wildmon said Kid Rock's lyrics focus on recreational sex and send a message of female sexual exploitation, both of which contradict...

    A scheduled appearance by vulgar rock-rapper Kid Rock at a Bush inauguration concert hosted by Bush daughters Jenna and Barbara has shocked conservative supporters. The rapper’s lyrics often focus on the recreational nature of sex and send a message of female sexual exploitation. In 2000 he appeared in a porn film with well-known porn stars, and he was named the Sluttiest Male Celebrity by MTV. According to Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of the American Family Association, the White House has sent a shocking statement to the millions of families who supported his re-election. "Kid Rock is an inexcusable choice,” Wildmon...

    Kid Rock, a popular vulgar rock-rapper whose lyrics wouldn't begin to pass muster with the Federal Communications Commission, is headlining the youth concert during the inauguration festivities for President Bush – a politician who was re-elected largely due to the participation of traditional "values voters." The Detroit-based rapper, who dedicated his first album to songs about oral sex and who was voted the Sluttiest Male Celebrity at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, will perform Jan. 18 at the Washington, D.C., Armory in a concert hosted by Bush daughters Jenna and Barbara.

    Kid Rock has blasted his rock peers who are involved with politics - because none of them flew to Iraq to perform for their war heroes. The rocker wowed troops when he and actress Brittany Murphy jetted off to meet and greet soldiers in Baghdad last year, and now he's angry that those who didn't salute men and women stationed in Iraq are touring to raise cash for President George W. Bush's rival John Kerry on the Vote For Change tour. He states, "You see this thing now where like Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi - like I love all...

    Kid Rock concerts aren't political rallies - as Jenna and Barbara Bush learned the hard way. President Bush's daughters turned out for Rock's Wednesday night show at nightclub Avalon and danced, drank, and sang the night away in a tightly guarded upstairs VIP box opposite the stage. But when the foulmouthed cowboy finished his set, the twins earnestly tried to lead the hundreds of beer-drenched, rowdy Republicans in a chant of "Four more years! Four more years!" Both girls leaned over their "Evita balcony" and shouted, exhorting friends around them to join in. But it was not to be. The...

    It was a lazy afternoon at Russell Simmons' spread outside downtown East Hampton. The hip-hop and fashion mogul, his younger brother Joe (aka Rev. Run, who's filming a pilot of his own reality show for the ABC Family Channel), movie director Brett Ratner and his girlfriend, Serena Williams (recovering from her defeat in the Wimbledon final), were getting a little antsy on a rainy Monday, wondering what to do with themselves. Then Kid Rock arrived. So they all decided to drive into town and take in a movie. They jumped into various vehicles and headed for the United Artists East...

    Has "Spider-Man 2" pushed "Fahrenheit 9/11" director Michael Moore out of the limelight? And is Moore having trouble coping with his predictable drop from the top spot? ---(snip)--- Kid Rock balked. "I don't want to see that, it's all propaganda," the rock star said - sparking a prolonged political debate right there on the sidewalk. "Russell, don't you understand, everything we got in this country, we got from fighting," Kid Rock argued, according to Simmons' account. "It's just a movie. ... I'd rather go to the bar across the street." Kid Rock refused to see the movie, and said goodbye....
