It’s great that Fred Durst became a movie director. Not because his movies are any good or because I’ve seen any of them, but because now I can make fun of him and it’s movie related. As you might imagine, Durst recently took to Twitter to express his sadness at the passing of Michael Jackson, and he did it as only Fred Durst can:
“On this tour I have been paying tribute to MJ by wearing his beat it jacket and rhinestone glove. The irony and timing is shocking. I am very sad. He was truly brilliant and the reason why I love to dance.”
I don’t know about you, but I imagined him covered in sweat, doing the Roger Rabbit at his cousin’s Bar Mitzvah when he sent that. But wait, there’s more!
“There are only four phenomenons [sic] to truly impact our lives in popular music- Frank Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles, and Michael Jackson. They will all live forever within me.”
Hmm, I’m not sure whether to make fun of him for having seven guys inside him or because he thinks he’s going to live forever. Maybe he’s a gay vampire. Later on, Durst answered a question about whether he and Michael Jackson had ever met:
“I did. Twice. Spent several hrs hanging and talking. Another time went to ceasars palace w him, my friend Ron, and Chris Tucker to virgin megastore [so was it Caesar's Palace or Virgin Megastore? Jeez you're an idiot. -Ed.]. It was madness. Great memories.”
Are Fred Durst and Brett Ratner the same person? I don’t think I’ve ever seen them in the same place at the same time. “It’s a sad day. He was just really a source of influential to me when I was writing ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot-Dog Flavored Water.’”
