Kid Rock spoke to "The Mikey Morning Show" on Rock 105.3 in San Diego early today (Thursday, September 13) about his fight with former MÖTLEY CRÜE drummer Tommy Lee at the MTV Video Music Awards.

On Tommy's blogging about the incident on his web site:

Kid: Did you see my blog? ["The Mikey Morning Show" responds: No] You know why? 'Cause I don't talk. And he's [Tommy] doing what he does best, he's talking. I mean, this is what stars all seem to be doing. And I really can't say a lot about it — my attorneys told me not to, obviously — but I think there's enough eyewitnesses there to say what happened and of course he has a different story which makes perfect sense.

On what started the feud:

Kid: Well, there's a lot of history there, obviously. It's just a lot of mouth talking, a lot being extremely disrespectful for a long time. To even be in the same room, it's kinda like… I was trying to figure out why is this… whatever, 45-year-old man, who's not involved with the show, who doesn't have an album coming out, who has nothing to promote, even sitting through this garbage. Like, you know, I go to those things because I have my album coming out October 9th, you know, and I think it's the best record I've done, so I'm trying to promote that. Other than that, I don't want to go sit through Britney Spears lipsynching and some kid dancing and lipsynching. I don't want any part of it, but you know it's part of something you do, so I'm trying to figure out what this guy's doing there, so whatever, I, like, that let that go. And then when I came back from the bathroom he's pretty much sitting in my seat. I'm like, that's it. He's sitting right next to it, yeah.

On whether there was any jawing going on before Kid went to the bathroom:

Kid: Yeah, it's been going on for five years. I did what any man would do, any man across the country, across the world would do. I mean, let me tell you this much — the last contact I had with this loser, who, by the way, it kills me just to be associated with, to have my name in a sentence with him, it honestly destroys me, I'm, like, gosh, you know, it's just so bad. Last contact I had with this loser was when me and Pam [Anderson] were going through our divorce he picks up her [Blackberry] and starts e-mailing me how much of a bitch I am, and this that and the other, and I calmly told him, I said, "Listen, I will see you again." I said, "You know this has nothing to do with you." And that was the end of it because I don't talk, you know. He used her Blackberry. It just starts going off, like he's king. I'm like, you know, "You've seen me plenty of times." It's always something, it's always an excuse. And this would be a great opportunity for him to go, "You know what, I did run my mouth, I'm going to be a man about it, take my lumps, and now I'm gonna shut up and it's over," but I'm sure he's not that smart.

On whether this basically comes down to Pam?

Kid: No, no, no, no, it has the farthest thing to do from that. That was probably the best thing I ever did, was get out of that, the day I filed from divorce. In hindsight, you can never tell anyone anything about love, but I went through what I went through, and there's no doubt it wasn't love — we went through all these things, but then coming out of it pretty much unscathed, after uprooting my son and a lot of things, it's like, "Thank god I'm out of this." It had zero to do with her. Of course, she'll tell everyone she was the victim in it, like always. "I'm the victim, I'm the victim!"
