fred britney The 10 Most Obnoxious Things Ever to Happen in Music

WTF Moment:

In 2003, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst told paparazzi that he was so in love with Britney Spears he’d “eat the corn out of her shit.” This was, of course, after he spoke at length to Howard Stern about her breasts (classy, guy) and swore on his son’s “baby blue eyes” that they hooked up (so classy, guy). Spears, of course, denied the claims, which Durst acknowledged to Stern by quoting new lyrics he wrote: “Ain’t it funny, scared to admit it / Very first night made the Limp dog hit it.” He claims they met while working on new tracks he’d written for her (shudder) but that she didn’t use them because, as he stated: “I’m very diverse. I write in a lot of different styles. It was very dark… too mature for her.” Sure, buddy.

Why We’re Still Annoyed:

Durst’s comments conjure the worst kind of bro, the kind that repeatedly objectifies the person he claims to love. Also, the kind that conveys love with fecal metaphors. Also, the image of eating corn out of someone’s shit is hard to shake. (Give him credit for that, I guess.) “I just guess at the time it was taboo for a guy like me to be associated with a gal like her,” he said in 2009, because he was still talking about it in 2009.

How Obnoxious?:
