Simmons refuses to fight with OsbourneApril 2nd, 2008 - 2:05 pm ICT by admin
London, April 2 (IANS) Gene Simmons, lead singer of the rock band Kiss, doesn’t want to get into a spat with rock singer Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon after she called him “a silly man in a silly wig”. Sharon made the remark about Simmons during her husband’s recent Australian tour, contactmusic.com reports. She said: “Gene’s a prat. He’s just a silly man in a silly wig.”
But Simmons is not taking offence because he believes her outspoken nature is part of her charm.
Simmons said: “I was quite cool with what Sharon said. I mean part of it was that there was so much media attention for Kiss.
“I honestly didn’t know Ozzy was in town until Sharon delivered that sound bite, that is. That was the first I knew about it. ‘He’s a tw*t, he wears women’s clothing,’ whatever it was she said. That’s cool. It’s edgy. I love that.”
