We guess we’ve become desensitized to comically unqualified candidates running for public office.
But fortunately (unfortunately?), the rocker confirmed his political ambitions over the past few months were nothing but a ploy to promote his upcoming album Sweet Southern Sugar.
During a Tuesday appearance on The Howard Stern Show, the Rock n Roll Jesus singer couldn’t believe anyone actually bought his widely-reported foray into politics, confessing:
“Fuck no, I’m not running for senate, are you kidding me? Who couldn’t figure that out? I’m releasing a new album. I’m going on tour, too. Are you fucking shitting me?”
Forgive us, Kid. We have an actual cartoon pumpkin running the Oval Office — an absurd rock star running for Senate just seems like the natural next step!
But alas, instead of going on a campaign tour, the performer will embark on a North American tour in support of his album, his first since 2015’s First Kiss, kicking off early next year.
As for his now defunct Senate run, the 46-year-old called it “the worst advice that I ever gave myself, but it’s been the most creative thing I’ve ever done. And I got to see everybody’s true colors.”
Oh well, at least we can still hold out hope for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s 2020 presidential campaign!
