Paul Stanley has one more thing to say about the roundabout beef between himself, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx and KISS bandmate Gene Simmons.
It all started when Simmons made some tasteless comments about Prince’s death, calling the late artist “pathetic,” for killing himself through drug use. Simmons later backpedaled from those comments and apologized.
Stanley did not take kindly to the take down, posting a lengthy rebuttal defending Simmons.
“It’s just silly stuff, honestly,” Stanley says in a new interview with Billboard. “It’s one thing to call somebody out and to have a point of view on somebody’s quotes, but then to just harp on it…You have to be suspect of the motives. Whatever questions I have about things that Gene has said is one thing, but to beat him into the ground becomes self-serving. It just gets annoying.”
