If you were taken aback by Fred Durst’s recent comments about his Video Music Awards performance with Christina Aguilera and his assertion that he “did it all for the nookie,” you weren’t the only one.
As we previously reported, the Limp Bizkit frontman explained his motives behind the VMA duet with the popster by saying, “I want that girl, that’s that” (see “Limp’s Durst Explains Aguilera Duet” ).
As it happens, Aguilera was padding around her house on the morning of October 4 and happened to hear Durst’s comments on TV.
“You wish you got some nookie from it,” Aguilera responded to an MTV camera crew after she caught Durst’s explanation on-air.
“He got no nookie. That did not happen, OK?”
Aguilera explained. “I just want to clear the table right there, and the thing with Carson [Daly] too. Eminem’s whole song [“The Real
Slim Shady”] did not happen, OK? It just didn’t, but it’s some really crazy stuff that people want to insinuate and people want to say, and it is hurtful.” [RealVideo]
Durst’s VMA performance with Aguilera proved to be polarizing, with fans either hailing Durst for his open-mindedness or slamming him for “embarrassing rock.”
It remains to be seen if the controversy will dent Limp Bizkit’s fan base, as the band plans to release its next album, “Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water,” on October 17. Meanwhile, the freshly offended Aguilera will soldier on with her U.S. tour with Destiny’s Child, which lands at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday and Thursday night.
