Rihanna doesn’t have a fan in KISS frontman Gene Simmons, who took a dig at the pop singer at a press conference Tuesday.

Announcing his band’s co-headlining tour with Motley Crue, Simmons said the show would feature live rock and roll, with absolutely no lip-synching.

“No karaoke singers allowed,” he told the press. “No fake bulls---. Leave that to Rihanna-Schmianna and everybody else whose name ends withan ‘a’.”

KISS guitarist Paul Stanley added, “when you think about a lot of the shows you go to see, they’re not live! You go to these shows and you go, ‘Wow, it sounds just like my album. It IS the album.”

The tour, which  will hit more than 40 citiies across the country is going to be all about the music, and not political or social issues, Stanley said.

“We’re not going to be preaching about saving the whales. We’re not going to be talking about toxic sludge. We’re up there to rock and roll. Everybody deserves a night off, and that’s what this is.”
