Gene Simmons: Kanye West needs a slap and a hobby | Entertainment
Gene Simmons thinks Kanye West needs an “ab**** slap” and a hobby.
The KISS frontman urged the “Stronger” rapper – who legally changed his name to Ye – to stop obsessing over his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and current partner Pete Davidson and let them live in peace.
Gene said: “Pete is a cool guy, take the high road, ignore him.
“At some point, if someone misbehaves, [they need] a good b***slap, ‘Oh sorry I didn’t realize I was such a ******.’ It’s possible [that’s what Kanye needs].
“Man, you got a roof over your head, food in your belly, you can do whatever you want. Find yourself a hobby. It’s better. Leave them alone, move on thing.
“Love your children, love your children’s mother and let her make her own decisions. She’s a grown woman** and she doesn’t need your permission.”
The veteran rocker also called the ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker’s new public romance with Chaney Jones “childish” and urged the brunette beauty not to be a “puppet” in the rapper’s games.
He added to TMZ, “Being like that publicly, having a Kim lookalike, it’s childish and it’s not fair to that girl who looks like Kim. Good for you, look like anybody but don’t be not a puppet for someone playing a game.
“He needs to back off. He’s not a villain.”
However, Gene suggested Kanye’s antics might be because they were something “clinically wrong” with the star, who has been open about his struggles with bipolar disorder.
He said: “He’s a talented guy, there’s no doubt about it. He’s crazy. He’s your wife, the mother of your children. It’s not childish, there’s something wrong clinically at home, as he admitted. There is a psychological problem.”
Earlier this week, the ‘Jesus Walks’ star released a shocking clay clip for ‘Eazy,’ in which he beheads and buries a Pete lookalike.
And he rapped in the song, “God saved me from the crash, just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s a**.”
Following the release of the dark promo, director James Gunn was quick to share his support for Pete.
He tweeted: “For the record, Pete Davidson is one of the nicest, kindest guys I know. A truly generous, loving, funny spirit, he treated everyone around him with respect.”
Kim – who has North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and two, Psalm – liked the filmmaker’s post and when a screenshot was shared by Instagram account Comments By Celebs, Pete’s ‘Meet Cute ‘ co-star Kaley Cuoco also shared her support.
She commented, “Done.”
