In an ongoing war of words, Ted Nugent fired back at Joan Jett in a recent livestream on his YouTube channel, calling the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer “stupid.”
“Maybe the plastic has gone to her brain,” Nugent said, as transcribed by Blabbermouth, seemingly referencing the rumor that Jett has undergone plastic surgery. “I just didn’t think she was that stupid. I never said anything about how stupid she was. I didn’t think she was stupid; now we know how stupid she is.”
Nugent’s comments stem from a dispute over who belongs on the list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists compiled by Rolling Stone editor David Fricke.
After Nugent claimed back in December that you “have to have shit for brains” to put Jett on the list, the rock icon responded in a recent interview with NME.
“Well, that’s just typical – it’s what I’ve dealt with my whole life, being written off,” Jett said. “Ted Nugent has to live with being Ted Nugent. He has to be in that body, so that’s punishment enough.”
Nugent argued that guitarists like Triumph‘s Rik Emmett, Derek St. Holmes and Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s Ricky Medlocke deserve to be on the list over female guitarists like Jett and Joni Mitchell.
Accusing Jett of “viciously” attacked him personally, Nugent also denied the accusation that he dodged the draft by defecating in his pants, claiming he was telling a story about a drummer friend and not himself.
