Flea Was Faking It! The Red Hot Chili Peppers Bass Player Explains Why They Weren’t Really Playing At The Super Bowl!

After all the accusations from fans saying they were faking it, bass player Flea is ready to admit that they were indeed just playing air guitar up there!
He posted an explanation though as to WHY the band didn’t plug in for their big performance.
He’s blaming the NFL! Apparently it was the league that wanted the band to pre-record their musical track and only have Anthony singing live!
In a wordy message on RHCP’s web site, he explained:

Madonna got things started with her OWN artistic call to action last month, with her Secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute video she created with Steven Klein!
Ahhhh… It's all making sense now!
She issued a statement today about her drive to participate in #ArtForFreedom, saying:
What a red hot cluster**k this turned out to be!!!
Apparently rock legends from The Rolling Stones were staying there and the RHCP frontman wanted to pay his respects!!!
Instead, the Californication singer found himself in the middle of a super-scurrry skirmish when security JUMPED him!!!!
Ch-ch-check out the musician's melee for yourself (above)!
Yikes! They basically kicked Anthony's talented a$$ up and down the sidewalk!!
It’s been almost two years since we heard new music from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
We think it’s time they head back to the studio. Lucky for us, so do they!!
Drummer Chad Smith revealed that plans of starting on some new choons are in the works:
“I’d take Bieber to the woodshed and spank him. His manager Scooter Braun is scared sh-tless. I don’t know what Bieber’s problem is. His career is over in three years anyway.”
