BRET MICHAELS: 'I'm Not A Sleazy Bachelor'

December 15, 2008

POISON frontman Bret Michaels recently spoke to the Sacramento Bee about the next installment of his VH1 series, "Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels", premiering Jan. 4, which takes the show on the road.

"All of the other times on television, like on 'Don't Forget the Lyrics' and 'Nashville Star', I'm Bret Michaels of POISON, and in sitcoms like 'Yes, Dear' I'm somebody else. Now, with 'Rock of Love', I'm me, not playing some real estate agent, but enjoying what I do, like motocross, Harleys, deep-sea fishing."

Michaels has failed to find lasting love twice now, and some speculate that as long as the show remains a ratings hit he will continue to do so.

"I'm not a sleazy bachelor," he says. "I look at myself as a very fun guy. I'm respectful to the women. I might actually be the voice of reason, and for a rocker like me to be the voice of reason is really a frightening thought. It's fun. We have good times.

"I'm going through the dating process and I'm not necessarily a great dater. I've been in a band since I was 17. I've never had a long-term relationship. I've just had one-night stands, mostly. I haven't experienced the whole dinner, movie, dinner again, meet the parents thing.

"I like doing the things with the girls we do, the dirt biking, the mud football and the ice skating. I don't like the girls to get hurt. I'm not into pain."
