Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly commented on the odd political statement of LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst at last night's Grammy Awards. "Anyone hoping for nourishing political commentary had to chew on the oafish Fred Durst's limp biscuit of half-baked inarticulateness: 'I hope we are in agreeance [sic] that this war should go away as soon as possible.' I hope Durst starts reading both the dictionary and a few newspapers soon."
Durst, who is in New York City mixing the LIMP BIZKIT's upcoming "Bipolar" CD, said backstage that he was not told to steer clear of the war during the Grammy telecast, and he was asked if he was surprised that more people didn't talk about the prospect of war. "No, but there's something weird about me," Durst said. "I always open my mouth a lot, and that was the perfect time for me, I think. I heard a lot of people were going to do it, but I didn't really think anybody would, but I knew I was going to. I wish this could all get over with really quick. I'm really happy to be alive and I love my son, and I just really want it to go away."
