Crying Fred Durst Says The Nookie Was Secondary To Feeling Loved

LOS ANGELES – Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst admitted that the claims he “did it for the nookie” in the 1999 hit “Nookie” were a farce and his true intentions were to find and be loved, confirmed sentimental sources.

“You know, as Limp Bizkit became more popular I started feeling a true loneliness and wanting someone to be there for me. I hoped the subtext would come through a bit more, but everyone focused on the nookie aspect,” expressed the rocker in a bout of self-reflection. “Coming into this world as a reject, I would often lash out against others like a chump to hide my own problems. As much as I could hide it, I couldn’t keep on rollin’ in the face of a toxic relationship. No more hot dog-flavored tears for me.”

Nu metal fans have felt a variety of emotions since the revelation, with one Bizkit die-hard having perhaps the most extreme.

“I spent my whole life doing it for the nookie, only to find out that it’s all a fraud,” said Sick New World VIP pass holder Chaz Otis. “I’d always heard rumors of Fred tearing up like a baby when about to get it on, but I just thought that was stupid lies from the Staind fans. For over 20 years I’ve been using women for one thing, I wasn’t open to love all because Bizkit didn’t make it clear to me it was ok to be vulnerable. I’ve got some healing I need to do. I should’ve known that only someone deeply emotionally damaged could come up with ‘The Fanatic.’”

While this comes as a massive surprise to plenty of fans of Durst, nu metal expert John Vicario says that songs like “Nookie” have been taken at face value for too long.

“Anyone could tell the tinge of sarcasm and self-loathing within Nookie’s lyrics, just as they could tell the lack of guidance in Durst’s future in ‘My Way,’“ explained Vicario. “People just talk trash on nu metal because they think that the songs mean nothing, when they’re the ones who know nothing. I don’t know how you can listen to ‘Chop Suey’ and not get the talk of self-harm and respect upon death, or the Alien Ant Farm ‘Smooth Criminal’ cover and understand that the real smooth criminal is the lead singer’s intrusive harmful thoughts. Don’t even get me started on what the breakdown in Korn’s ‘Freak on a Leash’ means.”

As of press time, Durst revealed that the stuff being broken in ‘Break Stuff’ was his fragile heart.
