Although I am a relatively huge fan of metal, especially 80’s metal, I am not particularly fond of Motley Crue’s music or any of the four primidone’s in the band. Most metal connoisseurs, like myself, were never convinced of the Crue’s legitimacy or their place at the headbangers table, and tend to take pot-shots at Vince Neil, the low-hanging fruit.
It’s easy and understandably tempting to pick on the aging rotund rocker, the years haven’t been kind to old Vince, but he’s relatively harmless. Besides Nikki Sixx, for a whole host of reasons, Tommy Lee definitely takes the cake for Turd of the Week.
The troubled skins banger is without a doubt, a bonafide turd-sicle, and his most recent comments certainly back that up. During a recent interview, possibly with Washed-up hairband Magazine, Tommy Lee threatened to leave the country if President Trump wins reelection.
For most Trump supporters Lee’s unimpressive stand would be akin to a two-for-one, their man gets another four and an irrelevant drama queen packs his shit and disappears, win/win.
This entire “bit” has been done to death, unfortunately for us, none of the celebrities that threatened to jet in 2016 ever kept their word.
Tommy Lee’s quote for The Big Issue:
“Dude, I swear to god if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the U.K. I’m out of here,” Lee said emphatically in the interview. “I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to Greece, and get a house on one of the islands.”
Lee said he thinks Trump has embarrassed America. In addition, he says people around the world wonder what has happened to our country.
“The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing,” Lee explained in the interview. “I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What are you guys doing over there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country.’”
That’s rich, Lee says, “The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing,” whatever that means… Imagine that, Lee’s worried that the President might embarrass him, maybe he should ask his kids how it feels to be embarrassed by some shit-head.
