Former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee has lashed out at the "retarded people" at BLABBERMOUTH.NET who have posted scathingly unflattering messages about his recently announced collaboration with BACKSTREET BOYS singer Nick Carter.Responding directly to the overwhelmingly negative comments on this site accompanying the June 27 article announcing Lee's alliance with Carter, Tommy writes in the "Tommy's Journal" section of www.joysmayhem.com, "If you go to the postings [on BLABBERMOUTH.NET] you will see moronic statements by many who just don't get life/creativity/exploration and music at all! Am I never supposed to write a song for anyone else?... Am I never to change my style as I and music evolve???... It just blows my mind how retarded people are!! I've been asked to write for OZZY, I've written many songs for the CRÜE, my solo stuff etc... Who gives a flyin' fuck who I write with! I only want to work with talented artists! Fuck... I'm not joining the BACKSTREET BOYS, I was asked by Nick after he heard my last 2 CD's production and sound if I would help him get a more aggressive sound for his new CD!!... And why not?... That motherfucker can sing his nuts off!!... And what?... Is he never to do anything but pop music?? He's a huge rock music fan... You all would be very surprised. I hope you people over there find something better to do with your time like move the fuck on and roll with the times and let people be themselves!! Do I judge your work!?!!?... Trust me... It wouldn't get me off posting to everyone how you burn the burgers you flip at Jack In The Box!! So run along..... Your boss is calling you. "Love, Tommy Fuckin' Lee"
