Kid Rock went all out for his new music video for his single “Don’t Tell Me How to Live” featuring Monster Truck, and he surely isn’t holding back on the, er, imagery.
The video is full of wild scenes and lyrics, including the musician riding a middle finger and penis-shaped rocket, a mountain of TV screens showing the news and the 50-year-old rapping erratically inside churches.
Rock also compares himself to actor Brad Pitt and other screen legends such as Bruce Springsteen and James Dean in the song.
“I’m like Reverend Run or David Lee Roth / Like Springsteen b – – ch, I’m the motherf – – king boss / James Dean, s – – t, I’m more like Brad Pitt,” he sings in the video.
The “All Summer Long” crooner also notes that he’s a “little less pretty” than Pitt, 57, also adding that he “slings more d – – k” than the actor.
Pitt, naturally, has not responded to the lyrics.
“F – – k all you hoes,” Rock yells on the track. “Detroit till I die motherf – – ker!”
“A nation of pu – – ies is our next generation / and these minions and their agendas / every opinion has a millennial offended,” he rapped while holding a gun to the US flag. “But this amendment one it rings true/ And if you don’t dissent, b – – ch, then see number two.”
Fans couldn’t help but troll the former spouse of Pamela Anderson on social media about the comparison.
“So now Kid Rock wants to compare himself to Brad Pitt. REALLY??? YOU BE THE JUDGE. ???,” one user joked on Twitter, writing alongside a side-by-side shot of the two men’s midsections.
“There are men other men should probably not compare themselves to: MLK, Michael Jordan, John Lennon, Einstein, JFK, Prince, Gandhi, and Brad Pitt. Just resist the urge,” someone responded to the funny tweet.
“Kid Rock comparing himself to Brad Pitt? Yeah … no,” one added. “Kid Rock is trending because he compared himself to Brad Pitt, Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson. I mean, come on, Willie Nelson?” another asked.
One fan chimed in, “So Kid Rock compared himself to Brad Pitt? The difference is that Pitt can still get more ass than a toilet; Rock is an a – – hole whose so-called “music” (past and present) belongs in a toilet.”
“Hey Kid Rock, when everyone gets done dragging you for thinking you’re Brad Pitt, I’ve got something to say: You’re not Springsteen or James Dean, either,” one quipped.
