Why, oh why, can't Lil' Wayne leave the rock music genre alone?
Everyone knows how the rapper fared with his 2010 cross-over album, Rebirth, and now, he's pulled yet another mind-boogling move by signing none other than the '90s-tastic Limp Bizkit to his label, Cash Money Records!
Forget the nookie. He's going to be doing it all for the ratings now!
In "SAY WHAT?!" news, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is heading to television as not only a producer, but a star has he has signed a deal with CBS and CBS TV Studios to put his own comedy project into production.
Limp Bizkit is releasing their first album in almost six years, 11 if you count the fact that this is the first album to reunite the band with guitarist Wes Borland since 2000. Gold Cobra is going to be something really special for the fans of the rap-rock quintet, but Fred insists that the disc is "definitely not a reunion. It's a comeback."
Limp Bizkit is postponing some of their summer concert dates so they can move to larger arenas as opposed to amphitheaters in order to give fans "the best experience possible."
Fred Durst explains:
"Moving U.S. headlining tour dates from amphitheaters to arenas for a better Limp experience. Basically, Limp is not an amphitheater band. We like to see less seats in front of the stage and more floor filled with fans going bananas. It's just more fun for all of us that way. Some bands are meant to be seen mainly sitting down, but definitely NOT Limp Bizkit.
"We want to give you the best experience possible so we will reroute to the venues we feel will work the best. High energy, good times. We want you to have the best. Working on dates now and those who already bought tix will be taken care of. Definitely adding Texas. This change lets us add all the markets that were going to be missed. Better U.S. tour for sure!!"
WHO is going to see Limp Bizkit?! So much so that they need bigger space?
During a concert last weekend, Courtney Love decided to verbally berate Limp Biskit frontman Fred Durst by blaming him for "the worst years in rock history".
According to Courtney, Fred is a disgrace to the music because he only got into the business, as she mocked him, for the "nookie."
When just her words weren't getting across, she started to hate on the audience that mildly reminded her of Fred. She selected a guy in the crowd who was wearing a baseball hat and started bad talking him, as if he was actually Fred Durst. She said:
"I see (a) guy with (a) backwards baseball cap. Dude, you! You scare me! You make me feel like you're going to rape me or something, and all my children! You did it for the nookie, dude in the red baseball hat! Do you know one word to one (Hole) song? That is so lame. I'm so sorry, you're here for the nookie! I could beat your ass."
Harsh! So what if he did? He paid for a ticket! You are there to entertain him, not castrate him!
