Tommy Lee says 'Rock of Love' is 'the stupidest s-- I've ever seen'

Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee is no stranger to reality TV (remember Tommy Lee Goes to College?), but that doesn’t mean he’s a fan of celebreality. Following a press conference and performance to announce Motley’s new album, Saints of Los Angeles, and this summer’s Crüefest tour, the always-outspoken stick-man revealed he could have had Bret Michaels’ VH1 gig but turned it down. "They asked me to be on the second Rock of Love and I was, like, ‘Are you out of your f—– minds? F— no!," he told "I think it’s the stupidest s— I’ve ever seen." Crüe singer Vince Neil, ironically, was more forgiving of their Poison peer. "I think it’s pretty funny," he said. "Trying to deal with 20 chicks in the same house? You gotta hand it to the guy."

Lee hasn’t given up on television entirely, however. He and rapper Ludacris have signed on for Battleground Earth (a show premiering on Discovery’s new Planet Green network) in which the two will criss-cross the country in various competitions designed to raise awareness of environmental issues. And just to show he’s serious, this weekend Lee heads to San Francisco to join the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Phish drummer Jon Fishman on stage at the Green Apple Music Festival, one of eight free Earth Day concerts being held around the country. He’s also planning to make the ultimate sacrifice sometime in the coming weeks: "I’m gonna quit smoking," he declared. "Or I’m gonna try."

    Well, here’s a first. Something semi-intelligent coming out of Tommy Lee’s mouth.

    I’m up for that Battleground Earth show with Tommy & Luda… what a pairing!
    Tommy is right: Rock of Love is stupid… but so is 80% of what’s on TV these days :) I’m just praying there isn’t a ROL III – or a spinoff getting all the ‘exotic dancers’ to work at a temp agency and put them in different jobs.

    Tommy Less’s show was pretty effing stupid so I wouldn’t talk.ROL had more viewers than his show.Anyway he just hates Bret because he is Pamela’s ex so he sees him as a rival that’s why he critizised the show,but if it’s so stupid,why date Daisy from the show? Is he after all of Bret’s exes?
