Kid Rock, known to some as an animate fedora with a ponytail attached, is rumoured to have filed to run for US Senate.
"I have had a ton of emails and texts asking me if this website is real… kidrockforsenate.com The answer is an absolute YES. Stay tuned, I will have a major announcement in the near future - Kid Rock"
While the Federal Electoral Commission has not yet received any paperwork, which is required if he wants to raise money for a campaign, he has a merchandise store in which you can buy star-spangled hats, shirts, yard signs and bumper stickers.
These items do not yet meet federal campaign finance compliance rules, and the shop is run and processed through his record label, Warner Bros. Records, not a campaign.
From here it looks like kind of an unofficial joke, and you bet the rest of society has quite a few opinions on this.
Some animal activists were quick to jump on the star who went animal hunting, proudly posing with Ted Nugent and a cougar they had killed.
Rocks website has a changing quote board, some of the most notable slogans being ‘In Rock we Trust’ and ‘Pimp of the Nation’.
Since his 2007 divorce from Pamela Anderson, he has released just over 100 songs, the most popular being 'All Summer Long' off the album Rock N Roll Jesus.
What do you think of yet another media star taking to politics?
