Kid Rock says he's fully aware he's acting like "the old guy" now. The 43-year-old rocker explains in a piece for The Guardian that he's comfortable with the fact that he doesn't take part in much social media or "FaceTweeting," as he puts it. He tells the newspaper: 

"I don't FaceTweet or whatever people do. I understand that I'm the old guy now. I turn on my computer and look at porn a little bit, see what's going on in the news, but that’s about it. I’m comfortable with that."

Rock also points out that he's already about to be a grandfather, and jokes that getting the title at his age helps keep his "redneck street cred" up. 

Elsewhere in the article, Rock talks politics.  He says he's "definitely a Republican," but "leans to the middle" on certain social issues.  He says he's not opposed to gay marriage, and thinks all drugs from marijuana to heroin should be legalized and taxed. 

Kid Rock's latest album, First Kiss, is slated to hit stores February 24th.
