Gene Simmons received a little blowback for a recent announcement about his new line of Money Bag Vodka.
Simmons tweeted, "Everybody’s got an opinion. Just keep moving forward and doing what you want in your life. It’s the only way to win. The rest will be in the peanut gallery talking, while you’re actually accomplishing something. Money Bag Vodka… 10 times distilled! Coming to your stores." The tweet shows a picture of the bottle which is in the shape of his Money Bag logo.
A fan took time to write, "You say something really meaningful and insightful, then make it an advertisement for vodka?! I know you are a business genius, but can’t you separate it once in a while?"
Simmons then tweeted back, "To answer your question: No. And that’s because life is business. May not be what you want to hear. Too bad. Everything either costs you money or makes you money. Everything."
Paul Stanley recently addressed the same sort of thing on Howie Mandel's Does Stuff podcast.
He said, "There are people who are being very creative and saying 'money doesn't matter to me.' Well it'll matter when you don't have money for the rent. I remember somebody saying to me, 'I just want to be happy. I don't need money.' I said, 'Well, that's good until you need money.'"
