LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Kid Rock was interviewed on the SiriusXM Howard Stern show Tuesday morning and when asked if he was running for the U.S. Senate - he mocked the idea and said, "Are you kidding me?" That's according to the Detroit Free Press.
Rock was on the show to promote his new album "Sweet Southern Sugar" which will be released November 3.
Rock said the Senate idea — which he has publicly toyed with for months — was a mixed blessing.
"It’s the worst advice I ever gave myself, but it's been the most creative thing I’ve ever done," he said. "And I’ve gotten to see everyone’s true colors."
The Free Press also reported that Rock said as hype grew around the Senate talk, even people in his circle who were "in on the joke" started to take it seriously.
"No, we’re not doing it," he said he'd tell them, "but let’s roll with it for a while."
