Why I Love Kid Rock So {Bleeping} Much

My theory on Hollywood is that there's a lot of pretty, pretty girls that go out there with a lot of dreams. And whenever you got a lot of pretty girls in one spot, it attracts every fucking idiot from all four corners of the world. Every douchebag, scumbag, scumsucker shows up and sets up shop and tries to figure out how to roll people.

It's the worst name in the world. The only person that had a dumber name than me was the Fresh Prince. Hey, it sounded like a cool rap name when I was sixteen. But it stuck, and now it's me. I'll be an eighty-year-old man... "Call me the Kid."

I throw my hat on, put my clown suit on -- it does allow me to get away with murder in a lot of ways. You fucking say something so outrageous, and people just go, "Aw, it's fucking Kid Rock."

One thing I found out for sure in life is, don't hang out with assholes. Surround yourself with good people. Whether they're the best or not, people are capable of learning if they've got good hearts and they're good souls.

Whatever you read, I'm all that. You can make me out to be a great single father who lives in a small town and helps his community, or you can make me out to be some drug-raging beat-your-ass-in-the-Waffle-House fucking rock star. I'm all that.

The Waffle House will be a cloud hanging over me forever. But not the worst cloud. Could have been worse. What if we were in a fucking Ruth's Chris? That would have hurt my image.

People ask all the time, "What would you be doing if you weren't Kid Rock?" It's simple. I'd be broke Kid Rock.

I know I'm not the best. I'm not the best singer, I'm not the best songwriter, I'm not the best player. But I know that what I fucking do, I'm the best at.

Quotes from Kid Rock's interview with Esquire

When we were stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, Kid Rock and J-Lo visited (either at the same time or pretty close to one another, I can't remember). Everybody looooved Kid Rock. I never heard one bad thing about him - only that he was a real, down to earth, genuinely nice guy. J-Lo, however? The total opposite. EVERYBODY I talked to there who had met her, absolutely loathed her bitchy personality. Especially the people at the base bowling alley, from which she reportedly ordered tons of food she didn't pay for. Weird!

He is awesome. Celebrities that keep it real and use their fame to do good are few and far between, but the ones that are there are making changes that will last for generations to come.
