Durst Calls a Timeout on Britney Talk
There is peace in the world: Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has called a sort of truce with Britney Spears, according to new messages he's posted on his band's Web site.
"Enough already about the 'Fred and Britney' thing," writes Durst, 31. "I'm gonna do my best to put it behind me."
In her place, he suggests, "Let's talk about (the new CD) 'Bipolar' coming out May 13. Let's talk about how its gonna f--k you up when you hear it. Let's talk about any motherf---ing thing besides you-know-who anymore."
Durst's posting follows news of Spears's denial that they were ever an item. Speaking to the British version of Glamour magazine, the pop princess, 21, emphasized that, if anything, their purported relationship was strictly one-sided.
"I think him for me, but not me for him," she said when asked if the two had a thing for each other. "He's said some pretty amazing things about me. But, um, I think he leaped in too deep, too quick."
Durst reportedly has penned songs about the relationship: an unnamed track and "Just Drop Dead," which he has confirmed was inspired by Spears.
As Durst explains on the Limp Bizkit Web site: "I am close friends with Larry, who manages our princess, and he, Britney and I have agreed to shut it up. If you hear anything else, it's probably bulls--t!"
