KISS Gene Simmons blasted by Twister Sister’s Dee Snyder ‘Open your f***ing eyes and ears’

Simmons loves to make grand declarations, usually about his own band or himself. But now he has found himself in a war of words with another fellow heavy metal icon after Snyder opened fire on him in a new interview. The Twisted Sister frontman was discussing the current state of rock music when he suddenly turned his attention to the KISS star, who is currently promoting the relaunch of his band’s interrupted End of the Road World Tour.

Twisted Sister remains best known for the 1984 album Stay Hungry, which spawned the timeless hit We’re Not Gonna Take It. They also famously took the metal band look of big hair and make-up to extremes, usually with great humour, although Snyder has rejected being called ‘glam metal’.

Twister Sister completed their own farewell tour in 2016, while Simmons and fellow KISS founding member Paul Stanley have declared that they will retire after the current tour.

Simmons has been very vocal in his assertion that the great era of rock and metal music is over, with no new stars to replace the previous legends.

Simmons, like many famous musicians, publicly believes that the business model of record companies no longer serves or invests in the rock music community, and singer-songwriter musicians.

In March this year, he told Heavy Consequence: “Rock is dead because if we play the game from 1958 until 1988, which is 30 years, you had Elvis, The Beatles, The Stones, Pink Floyd, and on and on and on. And you can go to the heavy part of it, which is Metallica, Maiden, if you want to put KISS in there, that’s fine. AC/DC, on and on and on. Even U2, Prince, Bowie, Eagles. And then you get to disco stuff, and Madonna, and that stuff, and Motown, of course. And then from 1988 until today, who’s the new Beatles?”

“I’ve heard a reaction of Foo Fighters, one of my favorite bands, but you’re kidding yourself. There’s also the boy bands: NSYNC, One Direction, BTS, and [sarcastically] XYZ, PTA, and good for them that they’ve got success. Don’t kid yourself. As soon as those girls are gonna grow a little bit older, that’s going to go away. It’s like sugar: you taste it, it gives you that little energy boost, and then it’s gone forever and you don’t care.”

Simmons made a heartfelt plea for music fans to go out and support new bands and live shows.

He added: “Rock is dead — you bet your ass it is — not because the talent isn’t there, but because the business model (of streaming music) just doesn’t work, and so that leaves live performances. And I really hope… that people go out to the local clubs and see all the new bands and support new bands…

“It’s not going to affect me. I make a living, but the new bands need the love and attention. Don’t just go see Metallica and Taylor [Swift] or KISS. On the weekends, go to a place that’s got live music. And I don’t mean guys that press a button and do EDM. That’s fine, too. But that guy, if you put an instrument in his hands, wouldn’t have a clue what to do with it — never wrote a song, wouldn’t know what an A minor, A major or a seventh is. You need to support the new generation of talented people who are musicians and writers and so on. Don’t let the robots take away everything.”

‘F****ing hopeless’ Piers Morgan slams Matt Hancock’s resignation over ‘snogging mistress'

Piers Morgan, 55, has lashed out at Matt Hancock after he resigned today following photos of him appearing to kiss a colleague leaked online. The former Good Morning Britain host was left enraged as the former Health Secretary stepped down from his position for allegedly “snogging his mistress” Gina Coladangelo, as opposed to resigning for his “abject failures” during the coronavirus pandemic.

Piers typed: “Didn’t resign for his abject failures on PPE, testing & care homes that led to Britain having the worst covid death toll in Europe. 

“Did resign for being caught snogging his mistress. 

“Pretty much sums up Matt Hancock. As the Prime Minister said, ‘Totally f**king hopeless’.”

In response, fans shared their views on the situation.

One said: “The witch hunt has gone too far, we’ve lost one of the best health secretaries’s the country has ever had.” (sic)

A second commented: “But that’s his private life … millions of people have affairs … what’s the big deal.”

While a third typed: “Resigning is about the best thing he’s done in the past 18 months!”

And a fourth replied: “I’m so pleased he has finally gone, but feel so sorry for his poor wife and children who have been behind him all this time.  Really hope the media leave her and the children alone at this time.”

The pair who are both married with three children were seen kissing in photos the newspaper said had been taken inside the Department of Health.

In a video posted on Twitter, Mr Hancock said: “I have been to see the Prime Minister to resign as secretary of state for health and social care.

“I understand the enormous sacrifices that everybody in this country has made, that you have made, and those of us who make these rules have got to stick by them and that’s why I have got to resign.”

In his resignation letter, Mr Hancock reiterated his apology for “breaking the guidance” and he apologised to his family and loved ones for “putting them through this”.

In response, the PM said Mr Hancock “should leave office very proud of what you have achieved – not just in tackling the pandemic, but even before Covid-19 struck us”.

He added: “I am grateful for your support and believe that your contribution to public service is far from over.”

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer tweeted: “Matt Hancock is right to resign. But Boris Johnson should have sacked him.”

The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford tweeted: “Massive failure of leadership by Boris Johnson, Hancock should have been sacked.”

'I'm f***ing your Albanian mother' – Marko Arnautovic apologises for Euro 2020 outburst

Marko Arnautovic has apologised and denied being a racist following his involvement in a heated incident during Austria’s 3-1 win over North Macedonia on Sunday night. Arnautovic came off the bench to score Austria’s final goal in their opening Euro 2020 match and the strike turned into a flash point in Bucharest.

The former West Ham forward, who now plays for Chinese Super League side Shanghai Port, rounded the goalkeeper and scored into an empty net to make it 3-1 in the 89th minute.

After putting the ball in the net he reacted angrily, turning to the North Macedonian players and screaming in their direction.

He was dragged away by his Austria team-mates, who tried to calm the 32-year-old down.

There were suggestions on social media post-match that racist language was used by Arnautovic, who has now taken to Instagram to address those claims.

While he was born in the Austrian capital, Vienna, Arnautovic is of Serbian origin – a country which has traditionally had tensions with nearby Albania and North Macedonia.

Some of the North Macedonian players are of Albanian origin and Koha has reported that this was at the heart of what Arnautovic shouted.

The outlet says he screamed, “I’m f***ing your Albanian mother” in the direction of Leeds United full-back Ezgjan Alioski, while there was also an exchange with Egzon Bejtulai.

Koha reports that Arnautovic, whose father is Serbian, made the slur in the language, believing that Alioski would understand him.

‘I’m f***ing coming for everything’: American starlet Tracy Cortez prepares to face Russian-born Justine Kish in third UFC fight

Backed by ex-UFC flyweight champ Henry Cejudo and fighting for the first time since a win on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi, Tracy Cortez is determined to extend her eight-match winning streak as she returns to Las Vegas this weekend.

Born in a household of Mexican immigrants, Cortez began training in MMA after seeing her older brother, Jose, compete in 2008.

Jose was diagnosed with stem cell cancer shortly after that formative experience for his sister, and his struggle has inspired Cortez through periods of doubt, as well as the support of Cejudo, who was one of her sibling’s close friends.

Since losing on her debut for Invicta FC in 2017, the Arizona-based flyweight has been on an impressive run. After beating current UFC fighter Erin Blanchfield with Invicta in 2019, she defeated Kazakh star Mariya Agapova to win UFC president Dana White’s Contender Series later that year, earning her a spot with the top promotion.

“Straight hunger, ambition and hustle,” the 27-year-old has said of her ethic, highlighted by her frequent training clips showing her hard at work in the gym for the benefit of her following of more than 285,000 on Instagram.

“No rich parents. No favors. Definitely no excuses. This year everyone will know who [I am].

“A rising star. A champ in the making. I’m f***ing coming for everything I’ve worked so hard for.”

Cortez is hugely excited ahead of her return on the card headlined by Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum on Saturday, and coach Santino Defranco – who she has effusively praised and is a former professional with appearances on Ultimate Fighter – shares that enthusiasm.

“Of all the fights we’ve gone through together, I’ve never seen her work harder than she did during this camp,” he said.

“More focus. More training. More dedication. More self discipline. The whole coaching squad has been working with her and she’s on point and dialed in.”

The pair traveled to the UFC’s makeshift pandemic fight headquarters in the Middle East for Cortez’s win over Stephanie Egger in October.

“I’m happy I did it,” she told MMA Fighting about the experience, adding that she was grateful to the UFC but finds it far more logistically easy to compete at the UFC Apex, where she will be again for her next fight.

“Would I do it again? Probably not. It was long.

“I’m not satisfied. That win for me is just like, ‘yeah, I passed this – on to the next one.’

“Even though I should enjoy the victory and I worked hard on it, I want to move up in the rankings.”

That bid starts against Justine Kish, a boxer and kickboxer born in St. Petersburg as Svetlana Nasibulina.

Kish has a record of three wins and three defeat in the UFC, having won all four of her previous professional MMA bouts.

The former Muay Thai world champion starts as an underdog against Kush and headed to Vegas for the fight on the day she turned 33, sounding as confident as her opponent.

“Feeling prepared as f**k for this fight thanks to my kick ass coaches,” she said.

Crock-ing off: Dethroned UFC champ Yan blasts ‘b****’ Sterling after rival calls Russian a ‘f***ing moron’ over disqualification

Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling have thrown the gloves off over the ex-champ’s disqualification from their now-infamous UFC scrap, with the Russian elaborating on Sterling’s perceived fake injury after being called a “dirty p****”.

Yan was on top in the much-anticipated fight before sending the apparently-concussed Sterling sprawling around the octagon at UFC 259 on March 7, eventually earning a disqualification for what was deemed to have been an illegal knee in the fourth round.

Champion-by-default Sterling has been widely mocked by fighters and fans over his fight-ending reaction to the ill-judged blow, which caused cynics to suggest the incident had given him a positive way out of an encounter he was losing.

“Now I can definitely say that Sterling was feigning,” a revenge-seeking Yan told Championat, adding that he hoped to secure a rematch in May or June.

“When the doctor appeared in the octagon, the judge told him that it was a prohibited strike, and [advised the disqualification].

“And Sterling immediately began to die even more. You saw the kind of theater he set up.

“Barely alive, and then immediately gave interviews so cheerfully, and in the evening with might and main he was already celebrating with his friends.”

‘No Mercy’ had already responded to a post-fight image of Sterling appearing to drink alcohol with friends by expressing sarcastic concern for the bantamweight’s wellbeing and surprise that he had recovered so swiftly.

Sterling inflamed the war of words on Wednesday by posting an animation of cartoon character Homer Simpson appearing confused as he leafed through an instruction manual, adding to Yan: “Hey, did you and your team learn the rules yet?”

That was enough for the bitter rivalry to descend into another round of obscenities and counter-claims.

“Just be grateful, cowardly b***h,” warned Yan, before Sterling hit back: “Grateful that you’re a dirty d*******.

Yan told Sterling to “keep playing victim” and labeled him the “softest fighter on the UFC roster”, to which Sterling replied: “Play victim?

“You really can’t be this dumb, can you? Ahh, I can’t to slap the s*** out of you like the coward you are. You dirty p****.”

Yan published footage from the fight and claimed he only needed “one takedown”, while Sterling boasted that he had been surprised at how easy the fight was and said: “I still outstruck the striker. And you still lost because you’re a f***ing moron.”

In between Yan telling him not to “forget to bring your balls to the octagon this time, b****”, Sterling defended himself against messages from viewers who felt he had been less than honest and performed poorly.

“A lot of stuff looked bad but I was in the fight and the one pressing forward almost the entire time,” he said.

“I hope Yan thinks he was ‘killing me’ from round one to round four. Going to be a complete flip of the script [in a rematch].

“I honestly wasn’t coherent enough at that exact moment [after the illegal strike] to make that decision [to continue]. I appreciate the support and I will be back to make things right.

“It still blows my mind that people think you can actually fake this. I’ve seen guys barely get hit and cop out of fights, yet I’m the actor. I’ll just keep poking at people’s ignorance, albeit at my health’s expense.

“It baffles me that Yan is once apologetic about his ‘mistake’, then says I was faking.

“He disqualified himself. I won on his dirty play. We will pick up where we left off, except this time I won’t be depleted. He gave me an extra life.

“The guy starts attacking me that I was faking?? What the f*** planet do we live on where you can fake that?

“Screw it, he gifted me pay-per-view points. Maybe now I can finally be set for life after the rematch. Joke’s on him.”
