Rocker Flea Unfazed by National Anthem Criticism
Many people were far from impressed and suggested a bigger name with a powerful voice should have been invited to sing the anthem to honor Bryant’s last game. But Flea was unfazed by the criticism and on Friday he told TMZ, “I don’t care, man. I know that people who like music liked it. I thought it was beautiful. “I really don’t have any concern for little small minds that get frustrated when they get blown. I like the big minds.” Flea’s National Anthem kicked off an evening of tributes to the retiring Lakers superstar, who went on to score an unbelievable 60 points in the home team’s win over the Jazz. Jay Z, Kanye West, Jack Nicholson, Adam Levine and David Beckham were among the stars who, like the bassist, caught Bryant’s big night.
