Kid Rock Talks Gay Marriage, Social Media, Rap-Rock & More in Newspaper Op-Ed

Image Courtesy of Clay Patrick McBrideKid Rock has never been particularly reserved regarding his opinions and political beliefs. The Detroit-rocker continues that trend of outspokenness in a new op-ed that he penned for the U.K. newspaper The Guardian.

Among the many topics of conversation in the op-ed are Rock's thoughts on today's social issues.

"I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do," he writes. "As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it."

Rock also touches on his experiences with technology and social media, admitting that he doesn't "FaceTweet."

"I understand that I’m the old guy now," he says. "I turn on my computer and look at porn a little bit, see what’s going on in the news, but that’s about it. I’m comfortable with that."

Finally, Rock reveals that he originally played rap-rock because that was "what people wanted at the time," but he has since fallen out of favor with the genre.

"[Rap-rock] turned into a lot of bulls**t and it turned out to be pretty gay," he writes. "If someone says you can’t say "gay" like that you tell them to go f**k themselves. You’re not going to get anything politically correct out of me."

Rock's new album, First Kiss, will be released on February 24.
