Rihanna is Put on Blast For Lip Syncing and is Called a "Karaoke Singer"

I never did like when entertainers lip synced through a performance and apparently neither does KISS bassist Gene Simmons.

During a press conference on Tuesday to announce KISS and Motley Crue's summer tour, he made note that the band's sets would be live, unlike Rihanna's stage show.

"We're sick and tired of girls getting up there with dancers and karaoke tapes in back of them," Simmons said, according to Billboard.

"No karaoke singers allowed. No fake bullsh-t. Leave that to Rihanna-Schimianna and everybody else whose name ends with an 'A.'"

Simmons describes lip synching as dishonest and also said:

"I don't care what your music is, have some integrity, be real, or full disclosure before the fact. Hold up a sign that says, '70 percent of what you hear is fake. It's a tape. I'm a karaoke singer.'"

Ouch! Somebody is mad. Do you agree with what he said?
