Kid Rock swears his announcement that he’s running for a U.S. Senate seat is not a hoax.
He linked to the website KidRockForSenate.com the other day. A lot of people still think it’s a publicity stunt, because if you try to buy merchandise, it redirects to a site hosted by Warner Brothers Records. So, that seemed like a dead giveaway.
But in a post on his blog yesterday, Kid Rock ripped on the media and said he’s not even signed by Warner anymore. Which is true, they’re not his record label anymore. They are still his merchandise company though. So, that hasn’t really put the hoax rumors to bed.
He also suggested any music he puts out will be part of his Senate run. Quote, “Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine . . . It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101.”
His post also said the music part of his campaign would start at midnight last night, and it did. He released two new songs called “Greatest Show on Earth” and “Po-Dunk”.
They fit his usual style, but neither of them directly address his alleged political career or politics in general.
