Fred Durst isn't offended by his pal's track, but Christina Aguilera is...
On the single, Eminem attacks pop artists, including ‘N Sync and Britney Spears, before imagining Christina Aguilera performing a sex act on both Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst and MTV presenter Carson Daly.
Speaking to [url=]www.mtv.com, Durst defended the single, saying: “For one thing, it’s not true, so it doesn’t bother me. I really like that girl. I think she’s an amazing singer. She’s going to be one of those amazing icon women. I’m really attracted to her, I like her, and I’ve talked to her a couple of times, and that’s that. I haven’t had any type of relationship with her, or any type of intercourse with her. She’s never sucked my dick, she’s never sucked Carson‘s.”
In the video for the ‘The Real Slim Shady’ an inflatable doll which supposedly resembles the singer sits between a Daly lookalike and Durst at an awards show. Durst revealed he is friends with Eminem, adding: “I’m a friend of his, and when he throws me in the mix, I’m not offended. It’s so over-the-top, I know that people aren’t going to think this is true.”
However, Aguilera has acted angrily to the song. She told US reporters: “It’s disgusting and offensive, and above all it’s not true.”
Eminem‘s opinions on pop bands have not been confined to his music. Speaking in a recent edition of NME, he collectively labelled them as “fake, trash, horrible” and having “no talent”, adding: “Boy/Girl bands – little watered down pop groups, made bands, somebody sticks ’em together and makes something that’s artificial, that’s fuckin’ phoney. Fuck ‘N Sync, fuck Backstreet Boys, fuck Britney Spears, fuck Christina Aguilera. That shit is trash to me, fuckin’ no talent.”
Eminem is currently in the UK with Dr Dre. The rapper was in London yesterday (April 27) to record a live version of ‘The Real Slim Shady’ for BBC1‘s Top Of The Pops show. His new album, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’, is released on May 29 through Aftermath/Interscope.
