Kid Rock hopes Justin Bieber “sanitised” the “evil” tour bus he sold him.
The wholesome 17-year-old ‘Baby’ singer bought his touring vehicle from rap-rocker Kid, who claims he had altogether more debauched uses for it when he was driving it across the US on tour.
He told magazine Time Out Chicago: “I was like, ‘Did you have that thing sanitised, young man?’ I had the bus made with all red leather. That bus, for a few years, was just evil. We called it the Devil’s Den.
“It had embossed Detroit D’s, a skylight and a fibre-optic see-through shower. You just look at it, and go, ‘Oh, doesn’t look like anything positive happened in here’. Now it’s like an ice-cream truck.”
Now he’s not as busy touring, and is settled into trying to forge a country music career, Kid is enjoying living in Alabama, in the South of the US.
He explained: “I just bought some property in Alabama. We got f***ing 1,600 acres to just be general rednecks on. We hunt and fish. Have big-ass bonfires and build little structures that you’d never get approved in some city. Just shoot machine guns to cut down trees, fire off Civil War cannons. Have shrimp boils.”
