Newsweek sat down with dancer and perpetual father Kevin Federline to discuss his new role as white-boy rapper.Â FederlineÂ seems preparedÂ for the backlash this musical move will make.
Quoting his critics, Federline tells us, “He hates his children, he treats his wife like dirt, he gets high all day….Â If I was that bad, you think anyone, let alone Britney, would put up with it?”
Ummm, yes.Â Though I doubt we need a “Free Britney” campaign.
The fertile Federline plans to release his debut album by this spring, but without featuring hisÂ loving and dearÂ wife on the album.Â
“We have collaborated, but I’m not going to put the songs on this album because it’s like, ‘Respect me first; then I’ll show you what I’ve done with my wife.”
Ummm, OK.Â Like making her into a dribbling, baby-toting idiot?Â Yeah, Kev, we know.
Let’s talk Kevin for aÂ minute.Â Let’s go back to where it all gets so icky- early 2004.Â So, he’s in a long-term relationship with Moesha star, Shar Jackson.Â They already have a daughter, born in 2002, and she isÂ six-monthsÂ pregnant with a son.Â At this point Federline dances into the Louisiana heart ofÂ Britney Spears and the rest is distasteful history.Â
Let me get this straight,Â he leaves his pregnant girlfriend, waves goodbye and does an I’ll-send-you-a-check-and-see-them-on-the-weekends-I-remember kind of thing and some poor saps out there are going to buy his lackluster album and support behavior such as this? Â Maybe we need “Free the Poor Saps”Â t-shirts.Â
My apologies, but if your September 18, 2004 wedding consisted of the groomsmen wearingÂ matching warm-up suits marked with the word “Pimps” and the wedding fare was chicken wings, ribs, mini cheeseburgers, crab cakes, and Waldorf salad followed by drinks at a nightclub on Sunset Boulevard paid out of your own pocket on top of leaving your pregnant girlfriend, you’re off my “I’m going to buy your album” list.Â
