Justin Moore On His Twitter Feud With Ashton Kutcher & Being A Dad
Lucky listeners had a chance to enjoy Dunkin Donuts while Justin sang a short acoustic set including hits “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away”, “Small Town USA”, “Bait A Hook” and his new single “Til My Last Day”. But before he pulled out the guitar, he sat down to chat with Tanner about his NASCAR picks for the Coca Cola 600 this weekend, what’s on the musical horizon and even about his Twitter feud with Ashton Kutcher.
Just after the ACM Awards on April 1, there was a Twitter fight between Ashton Kutcher, Miranda Lambert and Justin Moore. With his over-the-top red country suit and cowboy hat, some country stars found it in distaste. Of course, it got the country music world reeling if Ashton was mocking the entire music genre. Justin quickly took to Twitter to express his feelings on it: “Seen Ashton kutcher at the acms tonight. What a douche! I don’t care for people making a mockery of the way country artists’ dress”, he tweets.
Soon after, Ashton fired back at Justin, “Justin Moore calls it mocking I call it respecting your Elders. Maybe that’s old fashion. Know when to fold em brother….” which only prompted Justin to get a little more heated. “Go listen to alan Jackson ” gone country” brother…you can’t hang with me on old country buddy. Not gonna happen…JM”.
Of course, the country world jumped on Ashton immediately. But did Justin and Ashton ever make up? Nearly two months after the ordeal, Justin opened up about the entire situation. “I guess it’s off,” Justin admitted when asked if it was still ongoing. “A lot of people had the same opinion I did… I really just don’t care, honestly. That was the way I felt about it and that’s what Twitter’s for in my opinion.”
But the brief moments of intensity didn’t last long and Justin turned his focus to what was really important: his family. “I have a 27 month old who’s certifiably insane and a six month old little girl,” who he attributes to having his wife’s sweet demeanor. That funny part? Justin’s youngest tested in the 90th percentile in height, to which a 5’6″ Justin Moore expressed his excitement, “I’m just going ‘YES!’,” he says excitedly, throwing his hands in the air.
