Gene Simmons Squirms For Shannon


In the aftermath of this week's release of the Gene Simmons sex tape, Gene has no doubt been kissing a lot of Shannon Tweed ass. I love what Gene wrote on his website. "Hi everyone. You may have heard or seen garbage that has sprung up from my past."Rest assured the proper legal team is looking at all ramifications and options."Once again, thank you (and I can't say it enough) for your overwhelming support for the family and myself. Your emails have been gracious and I am humbled. Onward. Today is a new day."

So basically it looks like he probably told Shannon Tweed that this happened a long time ago, and that of course he doesn't cheat on her. Yes, I know they have an open relationship, but it always seems like the guys take that sentence a little more literally than the woman huh? Anyway, if this tape were not of Gene, his legal team would not be looking at all the options available to him, but would have already been in court to try and stop the distribution of the tape. Since we haven't heard from anyone on Gene's legal team, I am guessing that his legal team is in negotiations to get a piece of the profits of the tape, and if that doesn't work will then sue. "Yes, honey it happened a long time ago, I swear. But, as long as it happened don't you think we should make some money off it. I mean I bet you would love a trip to Europe or some new clothes."

I think the people who actually have the best chance of making some money off this are Foreigner. Yes, it is their song that can be heard in the background. Further, the tape is being sold commercially and so they have a very good case to get some money unless they already sold a license to the song which I doubt. I wonder if their record sales have gone up this week or if the song has been downloaded more than usual.

Yikes! I thought the Foreigner song being on the tape was a joke (I haven't seen the tape yet.) Simmons is in so much trouble (I don't care HOW much money he's made the record industry), Tweed is the least of his troubles. Music lawyers pursuing an unauthorized-use action are savage. Now *that* will be a TAPE!

Who would pay for this?! ew

I found this article.


We're told Gene's lawyers contacted Webmastercentral.com, which is responsible for the content on the website promoting the video -- ordering them to cease and desist because of copyright infringement. How, you ask, is this copyright infringement? Gene's lawyers claim the site had no right to use face paint to promote the skin flick, because face paint is a KISS thing.

And now we're being told, the tape is old and the copyright owner is ... drum roll ... Gene Simmons! Apparently, Gene got wind of the tape a few years back and bought the rights. Who's the apprentice now?

Not surprised one bit. Hell, I think he was aware he was being taped, which is not what his "people" are indicating, and obtained the copyright so he could orchaestrate the "leak".

After all, this IS the man that copyrighted the term "OJ" so that anyone using it has to pay him a royalty. Not fucking kidding, I heard Dio tell that story in a metal documentary. He's a joke.

"OJ"? BJ would make some real money.

Meamia, nice sleuthwork! This creep would sell his mother if he thought he could make a profit from it.

Cap - no kidding!

Maybe kissing Shannon's ass but he still refuses to marry her. He's a whore.

First of all, EWWWH! I agree with DNFROMMN, Who would pay for that?
Secondly, thank goodness the children got their good looks from their mom!

He wants that tape removed from public view, IMO. Under endowed guys usually don't want the world to know that. Also, Shannon is well aware that he's fucking everything that walks.

A former co-worker slept with him about 10 years ago and she (a huge fan/groupie of is) said he is about 5". She had to really pressure him to wear a condom and finaly had to issue an ultimatum.

While she was with him, a VJ from MuchMusic kept calling the room asking to come up to visit. Gene told the VJ that he wasn't interested and the woman called back two more times! I don't get it. The thought of Gene touching me is enough to make me puke...

Anyway, they did it twice (she didn't cum because she was too nervous). Gene asked her to spend the night, but she went home because her boyfriend (a musician who was on tour) would probably call.

Gene asked my co-worker to send her photo to him because he keeps a scrap book of all the girls he's slept with. He gave her his HOME address to mail the photo.

Here's the kicker... she actually did it. What a dumbass. Bad enough that she slept with that oinker, but to send her photo to him? Gross.

So.. the only way you would know Foreigner was in the background was if you actually watched it! (or read about it somewhere)But I prefer to think you watched it so I can tease you about it.


So what does his peen look like Ent?? No don't tell me.
