James Hetfield, aka Papa Het, has finally spoken up about Kendall + Kylie Jenner’s business venture which consisted of taking iconic music shirt designs and superimposing themselves over the top of the images…..so creative (no it isn’t, it’s tacky and disrespectful). Papa Het told Entertainment Tonight Canada, “I guess what they were thinking is, ‘We can do whatever we want. To me, it’s disrespectful. We’ve spent 36 years working hard, doing our best to keep a really close connection with people, make every note count, and someone just throws something up over something that we feel…not that it’s sacred or anything, but show some respect.”
Images tainted by the girls include Metallica, Notorious B.I.G., 2 Pac, The Doors, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne, and Pink Floyd, basically the most respected and recognizable names in music. And maybe if the designs were actually good it would have made a little difference (no it wouldn’t have), they were literally the exact designs put out by the actual artists with one of their faces printed over the top (see for yourself below). The lack of creativity with this venture was disturbing, I mean at least they could have changed the color of the designs or made it Kyl Em All or something witty….I mean anything that put their own spin on this thing, but no, they went for a bad Photoshop for the bargain price of $125.
The shirts were pulled from the girls online web store and they apologized, indicating they realized they had made a bad decision and that it was in poor taste. The fact that these girls needed backlash to realize that it was tacky is completely mind boggling, but I suppose when you grow up in the Kardashian/Jenner household it is basically anything goes, as long as you are relevant. And this family will do ANYTHING to stay relevant from 16 year old Kylie getting lip injections (and possibly breast implants) to Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn. They are basically like a really fancy, very long (waaaaaaaay too long) episode of Jerry Springer.
Papa Het isn’t the only one who felt slighted by these young ladies; Notorious B.I.G.’s estate filed a cease and desist order against the girls and Sharon Osborne blasted them on Twitter saying, “Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss”. Truth be told Sharon, they don’t even know lip gloss….I fell for the hype of having my lip gloss poppin’ during the winter holidays and ended up with my lips as dry as the desert, crusty, and somehow also sticky. Not really sure how that is possible (crusty and sticky at the same time) but I paid $35 for the pleasure of this experience.
I suppose it is good that they realized what they were doing was wrong but it more than likely wasn’t their morality that made them pull the designs, it was most likely the legal consequences of their actions. Shame on Kendall + Kylie Jenner, not only for disrespecting music icons but for thinking a t-shirt with their stupid faces on them was worth $125.
