Motorhead's Lemmy on Mitt Romney: "F-ckin' Monster"

Spoiler alert: the metal legend is not a fan of the Republican presidential nominee

If there's one thing that qualifies you as a political expert, it's working as Jimi Hendrix's roadie for seven months. If there are two things that qualify you as a political expert, it's working as Jimi Hendrix's roadie for seven months and then becoming one of the most badass rock legends of all-time. So let's take a second and listen to what Lemmy has to say about tonight's election, okay?

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the legendary bassist shared his thoughts on Obama and the mess he inherited. "I would have said America wasn't ready for [a black president],” he said. β€œAnd I don't think they were, because they're trying to drag him down now. I mean, the poor f--ker's only just gotten rid of all that George Bush sh-t that he left, or is trying to. And he's being stonewalled by the f--king Congress all the time. I don't know how he's gotten anything done.”

But what of Obama's opponent? "I mean the alternative is Mitt Romney," he said. "Please, please don't vote for Mitt Romney. F--k him. Repeal abortion law is the first thing he'll do. F--king monster."

This is the sort of analysis we're missing on cable news. Wouldn't you love to see Lemmy offering post-election thoughts to a clearly terrified Wolf Blitzer? I know I would.

But luckily for the Motorhead frontman, things right now are looking pretty good for Obama. But if that somehow changes, a word to the wise – stay away from the Rainbow Bar, a notorious haunt of Lemmy's, if you happen to be out in Los Angeles tonight.

Bang Bang! Hip hop goddess Nicki Minaj stripped down to her skivvies for the cover of her latest single, "Anaconda." Minaj is taking The Pink Print very seriously, donning a g-string and halter top bra in her favorite hue. If the song is as sexy as the artwork, we're not complaining!
