Former Kiss Rocker Gene Simmons Talks About His New Book, ‘On Power’ | TODAY


YOURSELF ESPECIALLY SINCE YOUR HAND HELD DEVICE HAS ALL THE INFORMATION THAT HAS EVER BEEN AROUND. BUY THE BOOK OR NOT, I MAKE A LIVING. I’M TRYING TO MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER. EVERYTHING YOU LEARNED IN HIGH SCHOOL DOES NOT PREPARE YOU FOR LIFE. HERE’S A WAKE UP CALL. YOU HAVE 52 WEEKS ON THE YEAR. WE ARE TOLD THAT TWO DAYS OUT OF THE YEAR IF YOU ARE LESSED TO HAVE A J HAVE A JOB, YOU WATCH I LOVE LUCY RERUNS. THAT’S 104 DAYS WHERE YOU DO NOTHING AND CHRISTMAS VACATION. FOUR DAYS OUT OF THE YEAR ARE SPEND DOING NOTHING THAN ACTUALLY WORKING.>>AND THEN WE WANT A VACATION.>>ALL THAT STUFF YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR. LISTEN TO ME FOR A SECOND. THE GOVERNMENT WANTS YOU TO HAVE AN LLC, LIMITED LIABILITY CORPORATION. THAT MEANS STAY AT HOME. ON THE WEEKENDS WHEN YOU WATCH TV, SET UP THE COMPUTER AND SHOW THAT YOU ARE SENDING E-MAILS. GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED IN A NEW ENTITY. POPCORN FARES. I DON’T CARE WHAT IT IS. YOU CAN DO IT AT HOME AND DEDUCT THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF YOUR HOME FROM YOUR TAXES. HAVE ANOTHER BUSINESS AND KEEP YOUR DAY JOB. YOU HEARD IT BEFORE. ON THE WEEKENDS, 104 DAYS WHERE YOU DO NOTHING PLUS ANOTHER 30 TO 40 DAYS OF VACATIONS AND PRESIDENT’S DAY AND I FORGOT TO TIE MY SHOE LACE DAYS. TEACH YOUR KIDS ABOUT CAPITALISM AND THE PRICE OF GOODS AND TAXES AND ALL THAT STUFF. YOU WILL BRING THE FAMILY CLOSER TOGETHER AS LONG AS YOU BUY ON POWER.>>OKAY.>>WE ARE OUT OF TIME.>>HOLD ON. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. YOU WERE QUOTED AS SAYING THIS. WOMEN HAVE A CHOICE. THEY CAN DRESS IN POTATO SACKS. AS SOON AS THEY PRETTY THEMSELVES UP AND POINT THEM IN OUR DIRECTION, THEY WILL GET A RESPONSE.>>I’M AWARE OF THE RULES. I DIDN’T CREATE THEM. YOU CAN TRY THIS YOURSELF. I AM NOT SAYING LIFE IS FAIR. WHAT I’M SAYING THAT THE MALE SPECIES IS VISUALLY STIMULATED. THAT’S LIFE. SO YOU HAVE POWER. THE POWER OF BEING A FEMALE. YOU CAN ACT WITH THAT POWER TO MAKE MORE.>>WHOA, WHOA, WHOA. WAIT. GIVEN THE CLIMATE AND EVERYTHING THAT’S GOING ON, YOU ARE SAYING IF A WOMAN DRESSES THE WAY SHE WANTS, I’M DRESSED THE WAY I WANT. I’M NOT DOING IT TO GET A REACTION FROM DAVE AND YOU.>>WE CAN ARGUE ABOUT THATTAR WE GET OFF STAGE. YOU DON’T PUT ON LIPSTICK ON A TROPICAL ISLAND. WE WANT YOU TO BE AS ATTRACTIVE AS POSSIBLE FOR US AND EACH OTHER. THIS IS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT. DRESS IN A POTATO SACK.>>WHY? WHY WOULD I DRESS IN THAT?>>YOU HAVE THE CHOICE.>>WHY WOULD I HAVE TO MAKE THAT CHOICE?>>I’M ON YOUR SIDE. I WANT WOMEN TO HAVE ALL THE POWER THEY CAN HAVE. I’M POINTING OUT YOUR LOOKS AND HOW YOU DRESS AND PRESENT YOURSELF IS AN OUTREACH AND AN EXTENSION OF THE POWER YOU HAVE. WE CAN’T DO THAT. MEN CAN’T DO THAT. WE HAVE TO BUILD SKYSCRAPER TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE. YOUR FEMALE SELF IS YOUR POWER. YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF IMPLEMENTING THAT POWER OR NOT. THAT’S UP TO YOU. I’M ON YOUR SIDE. I’M ON ALL THE JACKASSES GO TO JAIL FOR BEING IMPROPER AND DOING STUFF.>>>YOU SURPRISED BY ALL THIS STUFF?>>NO. NO. IT’S JUST THAT WOMEN FINALLY STOOD UP ON THEIR TWO HIND LEGS AND SAID YOU ONLY GET THE RESPECT YOU DEMAND. I HAVE A DAUGHTER. SHE IS NOBODY’S GIRLFRIEND. SHE HAS A BOYFRIEND. IT’S TIME FOR WOMEN TO STAND UP AND TAKE CHARGE. HALF THE WORLD’S POPULATION IS FEMALE. YOU WILL TREAT US EQUALLY OR ELSE. BY THE WAY, MEN NEED TO BE PITCH SLAPPED TO STAND UP.>>THIS HAS BEEN FUN. YOU ARE ALWAYS A GREAT GUEST. THANK YOU, GENE SIMMONS.>>IT’S A PLEASURE TO SEE ME.>>SUZANNE SOMMERS Heard about EUCRISA for mild-to-moderate eczema? It can be used almost everywhere on almost everybody. The face of a fisherman? The hand of a ranch hand? The knee of a needle pointer? Prescription EUCRISA is a nose to toes eczema ointment. It blocks overactive PDE4 enzymes within your skin. And it’s steroid-free. Do not use if you are allergic to EUCRISA or its ingredients. Allergic reactions may occur at or near the application site. The most common side effect is application site pain. Ask your doctor about EUCRISA. Good starts with G. Great tasting whole grains. They’re whole. Glistening with… golden honey, it’s true. G’yup real cocoa, peanut butter and cinnamon too. Good starts with G. * Even if you’re taking daily maintenance therapy, asthma symptoms can still feel like a bear hug day in, and day out So ask your doctor about adding SPIRIVA RESPIMAT
