Rob Fucking Halford Explains Why the F*ck He Doesn’t F*cking Curse in Judas F*cking Priest Songs

0

“Will Smith don’t gotta cuss in his raps to sell records
Well I do, so fuck him and fuck you too.” -Eminem, “The Real Slim Shady”

Judas fucking Priest singer Rob fucking Halford recently gave a fucking interview to Dr. fucking Dot (who, I suspect, is not even a real fucking doctor!), during which he was asked why the fuck he doesn’t fucking curse in his fucking lyrics.

To this, the fucking Metal God replied:

“I love to swear, but I use it in a fun way; I use it in an expressive way — getting your emotions out. But I don’t really think that it has much of a place in our world — in Priest. I mean, I see and hear it a lot in certain types of music, and, hey, that’s your thing; it’s your choice.”

Halford, who recently became a fucking colonel in fucking Kentucky for some fucking reason, continued:

“Music and all art should not be censored. Once you start censoring art, it multiplies and it becomes a very dangerous thing to do. Again, it’s all about choice. If you don’t like something, don’t listen to it. If it’s something on the TV that’s making you angry, change the channel. If [there’s] something that makes you angry on social media, go somewhere else. But for me to use explicit language in a Priest song, I don’t think I’ve found the moment yet.

“I have a lot of friends in metal that utilize the power of those words. If that’s the word that really emphasizes a part of your message, then, by all means, you should use it.”
