Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline’s performance at the Teen Choice Awards garnered him some admirers.

Elliot Wilson, editor in chief of XXL magazine, hadn’t seen Federline’s TV debut. Still, he called it a “YouTube disaster” — something to be laughed off in hip-hop circles.

“I just think we ignore him,” Wilson told The Associated Press on Monday. “He’s a joke, basically. … I just don’t think he gets it. He doesn’t get that he’s Britney’s man and it’s hard to take him seriously.”

You wouldn’t ignore gonorrhea would you? You have to eliminate any trace of it immediately.

Jermaine Hall, executive editor of King magazine, echoes that sentiment.

“The thing that really hurts him is the fact that he’s perceived as Britney’s husband,” Hall, who had yet to see the performance, told the AP. “You know, kinda like Britney’s second — I don’t even want to say second in command, but — he’s like the Britney Boy. He’s like Mrs. Spears, and it’s kinda hard to get over that perception.”

In Mrs. Spears defense, he’s just a white rapper with a dream. A dream of being able to rhyme properly and not have people laugh at him. Although, when editors of rap magazines don’t even watch your performance and still make fun of you, it might be time to think about a career outside of the entertainment industry. I hear Walmart could use some more greeters.
