  4. tributegirl • January 8, 2010 @ 7:09 PM

    I don’t find Taylor hawt or sexxii, I find him to be a very cute little boy, that’s all.
    Nancy, don’t sweat it, everybody knows you never said either Gene or Mickey were attractive, just some people have nothing better to do than chase you around with their dreams.

  5. demigod • January 8, 2010 @ 10:15 PM

    Nance doesn’t care how fugly Gene is, she’s already expressed how she feels about him as so many before her!

  6. Carol • January 8, 2010 @ 11:41 PM

    Taylor, very young and very YUM!!!
    Nance, I agree, Gene Simmons is far from attractive, but he is a hoot. I don’t watch his show on a weekly basis, but when I do get to see it I find it is good for a lot of laughs. His son is very cute though.
    Ok, I’m a cougar in training…LOL

  7. Nancy • January 9, 2010 @ 1:49 AM

    Demigod: Actually, I haven’t “expressed” any such thing. I said I like some ‘KISS’ songs…as a band, not any one of the members of the band in particular. I “expressed” that Gene Simmons is a very good businessman…and he is. The $millions$ and $millions$ just keep rolling into his bank account, so how can he be a bad businessman? Why? You jealous again? LMAO!

  8. demigod • January 9, 2010 @ 2:37 AM

    Carol on January 8, 2010 11:41 PM omg his son is as fugly as his dad..those same droopy eyes and lecherous look. Take a number.

  9. demigod • January 9, 2010 @ 2:41 AM

    Nice try Nance, you said he treats women with respect, and that you admire him. lol You’re so naive.

  10. Nancy • January 9, 2010 @ 3:24 AM

    Actually, I said:

    -August 25, 2009 ‘KISS disses Oshawa fans’ article.
    -Nancy, Aug. 28, 2009 @ 1:49 PM:

    -“At least he shows RESPECT to women in how he talks to and treats them. There is a huge difference between a “womanizer” and a “sexist”. As per your “query”, no, I would not ‘get with him’…but, don’t take that to mean that you have a chance with me, LMAO!”

    Meaning, as a womanizer, he treats women with more RESPECT than a sexist like you! Capiche, smarty pants?

  11. demigod • January 9, 2010 @ 5:43 AM

    A womanizer SHOWS respect to get laid, it’s just a front. A social skill he uses. You think it’s soo sincere! lol He preys on gullible women. Money/fame helps, and he knows women have their own motives.
    Gene goes around bragging about his sexual exploits!4000+ and counting..
    What do you know what I’m like with a woman in private? You haven’t a clue!

  12. Jo-Anne • January 9, 2010 @ 9:22 AM

    to even attempt to use Gene’s name associated with the word “respect” for women, Nance???? hahaha you’ve lost it…to Gene…

    Taylor a “very cute little boy” – you’re sounding creepier by the minute t.g….

  13. Carol • January 9, 2010 @ 2:50 PM

    What’s creepy about that Jo-Ann. She isn’t being perverted, she is talking about him as a child, which he still is a minor. Actually, I’m the one saying he’s hot, and he could be my son, so you really have issues and just enjoy starting an argument with the good peeps and their LEGIT comments on tribute!

  14. 879807897 • January 9, 2010 @ 8:23 PM

    not that this is at all relevent to most of the previous posts but I thought he looked better with longer hair….his head looks small in this picture and his neck looks big.

  15. Carol • January 10, 2010 @ 11:03 AM

    I like his hair short better, I thought the long hair made him look much younger. I think this is a more mature look for him.

  16. Jo-Anne • January 10, 2010 @ 11:12 AM

    okay Cougar Carol….ewwww

  17. moondog • January 10, 2010 @ 11:39 AM

    whats so bad about liking a mature look, idjit?

  18. demigod • January 10, 2010 @ 8:12 PM

    He looks way better/cooler with long hair. I hear he’s part native (and looks it) so it suits him.

  19. tributegirl • January 11, 2010 @ 9:42 AM

    I thought he looked better with long hair too, but the short hair definitely makes him look older. He is native, I forget which band he’s from, and I believe he’s from Canada, isn’t he?

  20. Jo-Anne • January 11, 2010 @ 10:32 AM

    your immature remarks on my kids are just that….immature

    funny how you, as a mom, would stoop to such a level?

  21. Jo-Anne • January 11, 2010 @ 11:01 AM

    look who’s talking?

  22. moondog • January 11, 2010 @ 6:38 PM

    look whos talking too

  23. gypsy • January 12, 2010 @ 3:22 AM

    LMFAO…Carol that is priceless!!!!

  24. tributegirl • January 12, 2010 @ 9:48 AM

    OMG, Carol, hahahahhaha!!!!!

  25. jjones • January 14, 2010 @ 11:12 AM

    Not too many Taylor fans here I see. Taylor is not Native, but has some in his ancestry. He is Dutch, German and French and he says he got his colouring from his mother’s French side. He is not from Canada, but born in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

    I think he deserves the title of Highest paid Teenager. He is the whole package, looks, skills, physical presence and is great in interviews. He knows how to handle himself in any situation.

  26. Nancy • January 14, 2010 @ 5:08 PM

    Looks like I missed at least 1 awesome comment from Carol.

  27. Jo-Anne • January 14, 2010 @ 9:21 PM

    nope, you didn’t miss it, it was your words….

  28. Nancy • January 14, 2010 @ 11:47 PM

    What the heck are you mumbling about now? My words??? From the sounds of a couple of others comments, they were Carol’s words. Why do you insist on causing problems, instigator? I never said a word to you.
