The day didn't start too badly; he was all ready to promote his new book "On Power" on Maria Bartiromo's show "Mornings with Maria", but instead made a decision to help Janice Dean with her weather report.

The musician reportedly barged in on a staff meeting, uninvited, before shouting, "Hey chicks, sue me", and opening his red velvet shirt to reveal his bare chest and stomach.

Kiss frontman Gene Simmons has been banned from both of Fox's news channels following a series of alleged freaky behavior while he was at the cable news company's headquarters. Simmons then peppered the crowd with inappropriate Michael Jackson jokes and hit two employees on the head with his book.

As for that interview with FoxNews.com to promote his book, Simmons completed it, but it will not see the light of day, the Daily Beast reported.

Microsoft to Cut Carbon Emissions 75 Percent by 2030
China, the top greenhouse gas emitter ahead of the United States, accounts for nearly 30 percent of world emissions. China, the world's biggest source of CO2, has vowed to use "market mechanisms" to help reduce emissions.

The source described the incident as "pretty severe".

According to The Daily Beast, the rock icon, who has been a regular guest on Fox News and Fox Business, was kicked out of the premises on Wednesday due to bad off-set behavior.

Gene Simmons has not yet commented on his Fox News ban. "Men are jackasses. And from the time we're young, we have testosterone". Simmons is best known as the frontman of Kiss, with whom he performs decked out in black and white make-up as his stage persona, The Demon. Simmons downplayed his qualifications to speak on the topic ("The lunatics have taken over the insane asylum when respected business entities such as yourself ask guys that like to stick their tongues out what I think of Harvey Weinstein") but when the cameras shut off things reportedly escalated. "I'm not validating it or defending it", he said. A complaint was subsequently filed with a supervisor, then made its way up to HR, prompting the Simmons ban, which is said to be permanent.
