Beach Boys Singer Calls Obama a Socialist "A******"
This little gem released by the forerunners of "professional" celebrity journalism, TMZ, captures on tape remarks made by Bruce Johnston. For those of you who don't know him, he's one of the background singers on "California Girls." He's also not a big fan of Obama. And he is absolutely vocal about it.
"Obama is an asshole," said Johnston, "Unless you're interested in never having any money and being socialized... you're fucked." Those are harsh words from a group that once sang a song called "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" Until this point, scientific evidence showed that the Beach Boys did not even have the ability to curse or say anything bad about anyone. My, how the times have changed.
