Kevin, is that really you? The banker look is quite fitting, and do I dare say that he cleans up pretty nicely. Plus, with this wardrobe he doesn’t give off his typical “I’m sooooo stoned” look, even though he has that same “I’m sooooo stoned” smile. What is this makeover for? To promote his upcoming CD, of course.
To promote his record release this August, rapper Kevin Federline, 28, submitted to a haircut, a shave and a wardrobe overhaul at a May photo shoot for Item magazine (out on June 5). After the makeover, he shared his philosophy on fatherhood, fame and fastfood.
On the public: “I should just put a bulls-eye on my back. If I stay home and take care of my wife and my kids, then I’m a loafer, not a good father. If I try to have a career, nobody thinks I am caring for my family. I can’t win.”
On rumors: “You’ll never see that guy they say cheats or goes partying all the time. If I’m there and I’m out at a club, I am there for a reason. I am not there to mingle with women. All that shit is done to me. I did that when I was 21.”
On his kids: “It’s completely unfair when a child is brought into this world an now he’s already looked at like a prince. My kids are going to have to learn what a real job is, what life is. You don’t have it easy with me. Period….My kids are going to work at Taco Bell, dammit.”
On his image: “I wish people would ask me about my career. Usually it’s, ‘How’s the wife and kids?’ Not that I mind; that’s my pride and joy. But it would be nice for people to look at me like an artist. The day they judge me as an artist, a CEO, as somebody, not Britney Spears’ husband, that’s the day I am looking forward to.”
