Kid Rock 'Embarassed' About Being a Republican; Upset About Concert Ticket Prices

Most Hollywood celebrities lean towards the liberal side of the political spectrum, making those that are conservative stand out that much more. Kid Rock openly campaigned for Mitt Romney during the 2012 election, standing out from the crowd of celebrities that supported Obama.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Kid Rock discusses his feelings on the GOP.

"I'm f-king embarrassed to be a Republican," he said.

His reasoning? Not the high minds issues you might expect, but that legislation has been passed that has raised concert ticket prices.

"It's f-king Republican lawmakers passing those laws, you dumba-es," he tells the magazine. "They already did it in New York and they're trying to do it in Michigan."

"I've even called some of those guys and tried to stop it," Kid Rock said.

Kid Rock does have more high-minded issues that concert ticket prices in mind as well, however, taking issue with things from both sides of the political aisle. He expressed the desire for issues to be discussed in a calm and rationale manner, including respect and open-mindedness.

As anyone who follows politics knows, that is a bit of a pipe dream at this point.

"People in this country just hate each other for voicing an opinion, especially in my business," he said. "I'm like the f-king lone wolf.

"Look, I tend to vote Republican, but I don't like the hardcore views on either side and I'm not in bed with anybody," Kid Rock said. "I'd probably be Libertarian, but I'm a firm believer you have to pick a side. I can't be playing the middle."

"If you think differently, that's fine," he added. "I'd love to grab a beer and hear why you think that way."

Rock supports gay marriage and is pro-choice. When presented with the hypothetical election of Hillary Clinton running against someone like Rick Santorum, who has openly opposed the views Rock spoke in favor of, he was momentarily stumped.

"That's a tough one," he said. "Jesus, I'm not letting you snake me into that."

"Nice try, though."
