Kid Rock rose to Axl Rose's defense in a rangy talk with Rolling Stone that also covered his opinions on Jimmy Buffett, post-concert sex and Beyonce, among many other topics.

Of the oft-criticized Guns N' Roses frontman, Kid Rock said, “I was like, ‘Why does everyone think this guy’s a d---? He’s the nicest guy on Earth!’”

He also wonders what all the fuss is about when it comes to Beyonce, who he says doesn't compare with legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Prince or Bob Seger because she doesn't have a signature song to match her fame.

“Beyonce, to me, doesn’t have a f--ing 'Purple Rain,' but she’s the biggest thing on Earth," Rock said. "How can you be that big without at least one 'Sweet Home Alabama' or 'Old Time Rock and Roll'? People are like, ‘Beyonce’s hot. Got a nice f--ing ass.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big t--s.’ Doesn’t really f--ing do much for me.”

Rock, who'll be touring with Foreigner in support his new album, First Kiss, also explained his special relationship with female fans. They are “45- to 50-year-old girls wearing extra-large T-shirts. They’re my bread and butter. They know how to f--ing party. [They're like,] ‘I don’t give a f---, I’m making a T-shirt and putting sequins on it. I’m saving my money for beer and having a good time.’”

Calling himself a “Jimmy Buffett with hair who swears,” Kid Rock noted his efforts to balance a rock-star life with his role as a dad. “I’d be driving the field trip Monday after I banged, like, four hookers,” he said. “Well, not hookers but, you know, four nice girls on Saturday night in Cincinnati."
