  • Gene Simmons: Terry Gross Is 'Arrogant And Insulting'

    Published: Wed, Aug 13, 2014

    KISS frontman Gene Simmons is no stranger to outlandish statements. He is a showman, something he made apparent Monday on HuffPost Live, when Simmons stopped by to talk about the band's upcoming tour and new reality show, "4th and Loud." Minutes after voicing how immigrants should "learn to speak goddamn English," Simmons talked about his contentious interview with soft-spoken NPR host Terry Gross in 2002.

"I told her she should get out, see the real world and not count the dust particles settling on her apartment where she was doing [the interview]."

    Published: Wed, Aug 13, 2014

    When your mom and dad happen to be both a part of Music City's most beloved power couple and massive hitmakers in their own rights, it stands to reason that perhaps a bit of talent just may run in the family, according to Yahoo Music. That certainly seems to be the case with Audrey McGraw, who is the youngest daughter of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The 12-year-old showed that she has promise to follow in her parents' famous footsteps, with a powerful voice and confident stage presence that belies her young age. Audrey showed off her chops during an acoustic performance before her dad's concert in Rogers, Arkansas, recently, treating the audience to an assured rendition of the Dixie Chicks' "Travelin' Soldier." One fan in the crowd caught it on camera and posted it to Instagram — look closely, could that be her proud dad's cowboy hat peeking through the curtain directly to the left during her set?
