Vince Neil and Mick Mars Clear Up Motley Crue Rumors
Attention all you rumormongers and loser wannabe reporters: Motley Crue ain’t puttin’ up with your shenanigans anymore.
The band’s singer, Vince Neil, found himself needing to set the record straight recently when word got out that he’d been telling friends he was getting ready to join the cast of ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ the long-running reality series featuring celebrities being fired by Donald Trump. It’s a believable enough rumor — Poison‘s Bret Michaels is just one of the musicians who’s served time on the show — but Neil recently took to Twitter to vigorously debunk those reports.
“The rumor about apprentice was started by a loser wannabe reporter Norm Clark,” insisted Neil, describing Clark as someone “who I haven’t seen or talked to in over two years.” The report isn’t completely unfounded, however. Added Neil, “I’ve talked to the show, but that’s it! But if I got the offer, I’d do it! Sounds fun!”
For guitarist Mick Mars, the misinformation is coming from a little closer to home; as we recently reported, Crue drummer Tommy Lee has echoed earlier statements by Neil that suggested the band’s upcoming farewell tour was prompted by Mars’ declining health. Mars denied it when Neil said it, and he’s denying it again. Via Twitter, Mars told fans, “Once again, any rumors regarding a farewell tour due to ‘my poor health is BS. I am doing fine, my AS has never kept me from touring. Thank all of you for knowing the truth … When I’m done touring, you’ll hear it from me.”
Lee’s response? “It’s probably not so much about your physical health, it’s more about our mental health as a band! Haha!”
