Old Fart Known as Gene Simmons Wants Women to Quit Depending on Men

It seems like Gene Simmons, aka The Demon from Kiss, aka an old fart that has been lingering in the air since 1982 has realized that after his lengthy career as a rock god and a much shorter career as a reality TV star, he is edging closer to cultural irrelevancy. So, the man wrote a book, and boy, he's got some tough love for those freeloading have-it-alls he likes to refer to as "women."

Over at Jezebel darling Andrea Tantaros sat down with the former entertainer (who was possibly wearing a Kim Jong-Il Halloween costume) to discuss his new book, Me, Inc.: Build an Army of One, Unleash Your Inner Rock God, Win in Life and Business,which sounds like it was ghost-written by Tyra Banks. For some goddamn reason, Simmons, a noted dude, took it upon himself to spend half the segment doling out life advice for women. Imagine that. A man famous boasting that he's slept with thousands of women and for the saying, "if you want to welcome me with open arms, I'm afraid you're also going to have to welcome me with open legs" knows what's best for you ladies.

His advice? Stop becoming housewives, and devote your early career to making your money. Wow! Women have never heard that before! He also advises to live your life in fear that the dude you love will leave you and learn how to balance your budget because "life is a budget." No, seriously folks. The rock god sayeth, via Fox:

"This is a very complex and difficult question to answer so I'm going to put it as simply as possible. Women: Stop depending on men. It's as simple as that. Imagine there are no men in life," Simmons said. "Find out that thing that you're good for that makes the money and then get married and or have children from a position of strength."

The best part of this quote is that Tantaros said that final word "strength" out loud with Simmons because it truly resonated with her. Please. Go to about 3:40 in the video above. Simmons goes on to say that men don't depend on women for anything, not emotionally and not even for sex, and says that men don't care about women at all because, AND I QUOTE:

  • They don't play mahjong
  • They don't go shopping
  • They don't care about the shoes

And there you have it—a dude best known for sticking his tongue out while wearing ridiculous outfits and platform shoes, essentially making him the original Miley Cyrus, waxing poetic on the woman's condition today. Thanks Gene Simmons, you ol' fart.
