Fred Durst hops back on the Britney Spears publicity train
With a new movie hitting theaters and a Limp Bizkit revival in the works, what better time for Fred Durst to talk about how he allegedly banged Britney Spears in 2003 and, surprise, knew she was crazy all along – based solely on the fact she denied the whole thing. Of course. MTV News reports:
The confusion over the affair still remains with Durst, and the rocker points to the episode as one of the first in a long line of erratic episodes for Spears. “I look back on it as very interesting [in terms of] how things have been sort of unraveling for her since,” he said. “[But] it is what it is. I can sleep at night knowing I made decisions that I wanted to make. [Still], I’m a supporter. I was then, I guess I am now.
“Her own decisions and different things in her life, people can judge her all they want, but she has an extreme presence and when she’s giving it, it’s really good,” he continued. “I don’t think you can really write her off and I just think it’d be silly for people to think that they could. Everything kind of works in cycles and I think she’s an example of how those things work.”
For Durst, summing up the incident may all boil down to one underlying theme. “I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her,” he laughs.
Let’s give a round of applause to Fred Durst for discovering the “Britney Spears Loophole.” Say anything you want about her past, and when she denies it, just say she’s crazy. On that note, Britney Spears still owes me ten million dollars from a high-stakes game of Hungry Hungry Hippos in 2005.
