Kid Rock Covers Men's Journal July 2011
Here’s what the 40-year-old singer had to share with the mag, on newsstands now:
On drinking without drugs: “Whatever your thing is, if it’s pills, cocaine, smoking weed, when you slow that down – which I’ve done a lot of – you’ve got to relearn how to drink. That’s the f—— hardest part. You used to be able to go all night. Finding that balance has been interesting. I still black out here and there, but nothing too serious.”
On caring about what people in Detroit think of him: “I really care about what people think of me in this town, because my son is here, my family is here, my roots are here. I don’t give a shit anywhere else, but here I’m very conscious of it.”
On his least favorite type of movie: “The Hilary Swank movie where you walk out of there with tears and just feel terrible. I can’t handle it. I just want to see somebody fall off a ladder, the boy and girl go home to a big pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and feel great about myself. I don’t want any drama in my life – not even in a f—— movie. Not even when it’s … What’s fake? Is it fiction? Even if it’s fiction, I don’t want it. I just want to be happy and have fun.”
