Simmons was speaking on Fox News to promote his new book ‘Me, Inc: Build An Army Of One, Unleash Your Inner Rock God, Win In Life And Business’ when the conversation veered to what life advice he had for the female population.
“This is a very complex and difficult question to answer so I’m going to put it as simply as possible,” Simmons said. “Women: Stop depending on men. It’s as simple as that. Imagine there are no men in life.”
The singer added: “Find out that thing that you’re good for that makes the money and then get married and or have children from a position of strength”.
In August, Simmons issued an apology after causing controversy with comments about depression and suicide. He has claimed that people who “complain” about depression should “kill themselves”.
“To the extent my comments reported by the media speak of depression, I was wrong and in the spur of the moment made remarks that in hindsight were made without regard for those who truly suffer the struggles of depression,” he wrote on Facebook.
“I sincerely apologise to those who were offended by my comments. I recognise that depression is very serious and very sad when it happens to anyone, especially loved ones. I deeply support and am empathetic to anyone suffering from any disease, especially depression.”
