Kevin Federline, aka “Mr. Britney Spears,” shared his thoughts about his image during a recent album preview in his California studio. The former back-up dancer turned celebrity-by-way-of-marrying-Britney Spears speaks to MTV:
Although his professional experience has so far mostly consisted of dancing in videos and on tours for the likes of Justin Timberlake and Pink, Federline’s been a bedroom rapper for years and actually got into dancing through hip-hop. Still, when he first stepped into a studio he worked on rock and alternative music before going back to his first love. The fact that hip-hop is probably the toughest genre for Federline to crack doesn’t concern him much.
“I believe that no matter what, if it’s real and people feel it, that’s what it is, it doesn’t matter,” he said. “They’ll look past what I look like if they know I’m pouring my soul out on this and I’m serious about it. It’s not like I think this is a joke. It’s not a joke to me. This is my emotion, this is everything, the past two years where I haven’t said anything or came out and talked to anybody, I held it all in here so I can do this.”
Federline hasn’t signed a record deal yet but has already released his first single via the Internet, “PopoZao,” which is apparently slang for “nice ass” in Portuguese.
