Kid Rock: Of course I'm not running for Senate

Kid Rock tells Howard Stern he's not running for Senate Kid Rock Tells Howard Stern He's Not Running for Senate After All
Andrew Cummings | 26 October, 2017, 01:04

Below are the five most WTF moments from the rocker's sit-down with Stern.

Back in July, it was reported how Kid Rock's name brought up at a Republican Party in MI earlier this year as a potential candidate for the state's Senate, before the appearance of a website aptly called "Kid Rock For Senate".

Fuck no, I'm not running for Senate.

"Hmm, I'm going to knock it", Kid Rock commented.

Not everyone. Rock and Stern chuckle about and endorsement from former NY governor George Pataki... suggesting that perhaps political figures should take a breath or two before jumping on a celebrity bandwagon.

Seconds later, tongue firmly in cheek, Kid Rock laid out the conditions for a possible run: If newspapers keep making fun of him, he will jump in and defeat "Debbie whatever-the-f - her name is" to get revenge.

If you're hoping to see Kid Rock perform live, you won't have to wait all summer long.

World Health Organization revokes appointment of Robert Mugabe
Some goodwill ambassadors have sparked controversy before - and been fired. "It is a meaningless gesture". He said he revoked Mugabe's position in the best interests of the World Health Organization.

Rock also confirmed to Stern that he is "socially liberal" and "fiscally conservative" after the host pointed out "Rock's condemnation of neo-Nazis" and his "support of gay rights". Throughout the years, Rock has played for the last five presidents, including Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

"I am the Klan wizard!"

Kid Rock, born Robert Ritchie, told Howard Stren on Tuesday that he wasn't actually serious about running for Senate in MI, which would have likely pit him against incumbent Sen.

In 2004, Rock was invited to give a tribute to Elton John at the Kennedy Center Honors, but he told Stern he nearly ditched the performance to hit up a bar with a woman he met backstage. "What the f- are you talking about?"

"I don't want to make these people feel bad".

Rock also addressed the misconception that there's nothing better than having really great sex with a really hot woman. Rock told them no, but encouraged them to "roll with it for awhile". "Are you fucking shitting me?" Ritchie added, "Everybody. This - and I'm getting letters from all over - I would say - the world". "Stop f-ing with me!" "I said, 'F*ck it, let's get some signs made", he told Stern.
