On January 2, Details sat down in Santa Monica for an exclusive interview with Britney Spears' new husband, Kevin Federline. About 15 minutes into the discussion, Britney, who had finished a workout a bit early, decided to join in. What follows is the better part of a remarkable candid conversation.
Details: People know little about you other than the fact you're a dancer who's married to Britney Spears. Are you done dancing professionally?
KF: I think so. I mean, I'll always dance for fun. That's my passion. Thats my reason for coming out to L.A. from Fresno in the first place. I quit my job. I quit everything I knew and come out here.
D: What were you doign back in Fresno?
KF: Nothin. Shit, I was delivering pizzas and up to no good.
D: Define "up to no good"
KF: Oh man. We won't go there. We definitely won't go there. Use your imagination. I just needed to get out of town...to get out of the situations I was in. So when i was a teenage, I started dancing for this nonprofit organization called Dance Empowerment. It helped get kids off the street. I did that for a couple years and started getting good. So I came to L.A. and two weeks later went on tour with a croup called LFO, which was opening for Britney. I was on the road with her for like, two months. I'll tell you one thing dude__I never though that any of this shit would happen.
D: Did you meet her?
KF: Ya we met. A bunch of us wnet out one time in a big group. That was just when she was starting to get big. She was, like, what 18? I was , like, 22. So I wasn't thinking about her like that, you know what I'm saying? Shit, a few years down the road, and a couple tours later, I wound up meeting her ass again, and here we are.
