Kings of Leon: 'Pop Music Is Making World a Bad Place, It's F--king Awful'
US rockers Kings of Leon gave modern pop music a decent bashing, saying it's "not even music" anymore and criticizing female stars for attention-grabbing performances. Bassist Jared Followill was the one to kick off the criticizm during a recent SMH chat, saying, "Some pop shows I watch, it feels like the end of the world, it's f--king awful." Guitarist Matthew Followill chipped in, "It's not even music anymore. You would never want your children to watch [shows like that] and I can't believe that younger kids, even teenagers are watching that stuff. It almost seems to be making the world a bad place." Back to Jared, the bassist added that modern pop shows make him "cringe." "I can't watch that stuff," he added. "Not even just because they're taking their clothes off it's the whole thing, the dance moves, it's not good." During the rest of the chat, the two confessed being "good boys" behaving far different from stereotypical arrogant rock stars. "I was in my room from 7.30 p.m. watching TV. I hate the whole 'rock star' thing," Matthew said, just to have Jared chip in: "There are a lot of people who buy into their own hype and they become dicks. I have always cringed at the term 'rock star' and now it's been taken over by hip hop. We are the most boring band. We are polite and always show up on time and if we ever cancel it's for a good reason." KoL unveiled their latest studio effort "Mechanical Bull" on September 24 through RCA Records, topping the UK Albums Chart and landing at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
