— to simply giving her attitude a sophisticated overhaul, Selena Gomez has made the past few months about her and her career.
Though the former Disney star turned superstar singer is sharing less about her romantic life and looking good living the (maybe) single life, some of her former flames (rumored or not) are just too hot to ignore.
And yes — we're totally going beyond the undying memory of Justin Bieber.
DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Eminem and Kid Rock, two of Detroit’s biggest musical superstars, sat down in a formal dining room somewhere in Michigan recently and re-hashed their shared history. That’s not a punchline, it’s just one of the stories Kid Rock shared in a wide-ranging, no-holds-barred interview Wednesday morning on the Howard Stern radio show promoting his new album “Rebel Soul.” He talked about the meal he recently cooked for Eminem, the time Romney came over to the house to garner his support, his hunting trip last weekend with Ted Nugent, with brief forays into his failed marriage to Pam Anderson and the re-emergence of his Michigan-made Bad Ass Beer. The human spirit’s pretty resilient,” Rock said, explaining why he promotes Detroit at every opportunity.
“I’m proud of our heritage, our history, our struggle, our tough times …
In fact, he’s such a supporter of Detroit that when Romney’s team called and asked for his support of the Republican presidential contender, Kid Rock told him he had to answer some questions first.
Romney’s team agreed, and brought him over to Kid Rock’s house during a campaign stop and said he had an hour of the candidate’s time to ask whatever he wanted. It was just him, Romney, a campaign aide, a couple of Secret Service guys who had scouted and approved the house — and a handwritten list of questions for the candidate.
“I’m into less government,” Kid Rock said, explaining his conservative bent, but adding he doesn’t agree with the right wing social agenda.
“If gay people want to get married I don’t give a f***.” So, what did the uber-formal candidate call Kid Rock? He added that he understands fans don’t always agree with his politics, but it’s fine to disagree. I’ve got friends who didn’t vote, I want to smack them upside the head,” Rock said — calling out the Red Wings’ Chris Chelios, who he calls “Cheli,” for not voting. He said having Romney in his house was a mindf***, adding, “To think that I started out in this business, wanting to get a hot piece of a** and maybe a car.” Someone else who started out in the music business from Detroit — Eminem — also paid a visit to Rock’s house recently, he said.
He said he thought Eminem had “come a long way” from his angry roots.
Kid Rock said he basically asked Romney, who was clad casually in jeans and a college sweatshirt, if he was “just a rich guy who wanted to become president to out-do (his) dad?
” “I know what it’s like to want to be better than your father,” Kid Rock said, adding, “Of course, I’m getting these ‘I really want to help America’ (answers) and I said, ‘Cut the sh**, this is my living room, this isn’t going to leave here.'” Rock said: “My main question was ‘I know you’re from here, you went to Cranbrook Schools …
Will you help me to do some great things in Detroit?
’ He said, ‘absolutely, I will.'” He gave Romney full support, appearing alongside the candidate and his running mate Paul Ryan at several campaign events.
