Kid Rock is ready to get into politics … maybe.
The singer announced on Wednesday that the website wwww.kidrockforsenate.com is not only real, but that he has a major announcement coming very soon.
“I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… The answer is an absolute YES,” Kid Rock tweeted.
In another tweet, he revealed that he has a big message coming soon. “Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future – Kid Rock,” the singer announced.
As of right now, the website doesn’t have any official information regarding Kid Rock’s political dreams except for some potential campaign slogans.
Some of the slogan options include “I’ll Rock the Party”, “In Rock We Trust”, “Pimp of the Nation” and “Born Free”.
Now, while Kid Rock seems very eager to start his political career, it seems he hasn’t gone through the necessary and proper paperwork yet.
The Washington Post’s Emily Heil took to Twitter Wednesday after news of Kid Rock’s website made headlines and revealed that he hasn’t filed any official paperwork yet with the Federal Elections Commission:
A spokesperson for Kid Rock referred Sopan Deb to the Facebook announcement when he asked for an official statement regarding this news:
On Thursday, Kid Rock spoke out against his critics in a blog post on his website. “Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC!” Kid Rock said in the post.
He also set the record straight and made it clear he is not signed to Warner Bros. but he is signed to a special deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation that allows him to release his own music on his own terms. This means he’ll be able to run his potential campaign and still put out new music.
“Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT,” the singer said.
Kid Rock made it clear this isn’t a hoax and that he wants to be a voice for the taxpaying, hardworking Americans.
