Kid Rock: Life's good

Kid Rock is in a "celebratory" mood of late.

The 41-year-old rock star has just released his new album Rebel Soul.

He is proud of the music he created.

"Midnight Ferry, it's really dark, but it's not a dark song; it's reflective, but it's happy, it's celebratory. I know what I want played at my funeral: That's the song!" Kid told MTV News.

"I was telling that to somebody recently and they were like 'Dude, that's dark.' And I'm like, 'No, everything's cool, trust me. I'm in the bonus round of life now.' God forbid I gotta check out any time soon, but, I'm like, 'It's cool, it's been a good ride.'"

Kid Rock got really creative with his music on this record.

While writing his track Mirror, he explored how fame has altered his life forever.

"I just pictured myself having an honest conversation in the mirror ... you know, Bob Richie talking to Kid Rock. But it's not, you know, 'Oh, I'm so successful and I feel alone," he said.

"Because I'm so fortunate and blessed to be still making music and have people come out and see me play; you're not gonna catch me bitching on any level. It's a song that's better to be heard, it's tough to talk about. I can talk all day about Cucci Galore."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
