His wife is Russian from Crimea, so that would be one factor lol

Fred Durst, best known as founder and frontman of the Limp Bizkit band, has sent an address to Crimea’s authorities saying he wants to live and work on the Black Sea peninsula, the Izvestia newspaper has reported.

In mid-September, Crimea head Sergey Aksenov invited celebrities from around the world to come to Russia’s new republic saying he would welcome the creation there of a counterpart to the US iconic Beverly Hills.

The musician, whose wife Kseniya Beryazina was born in Crimea, said other American celebrities could also come to the Black Sea peninsula if the ambitious plans of authorities were implemented.

Durst said he plans to make films and TV series in Crimea and other TV products that will be famous around the world and bring Russia to a very high level in this business.

The American also plans to help organize a film festival in Crimea and launch a cinema studio. He also seeks to participate in events initiated by the republic’s authorities and help the world better understand Crimea and Russia.

The musician said he wants to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Aksenov said earlier the representatives of show business, athletes, actors and other celebrities would face no administrative or other barriers if they decide to buy any real estate on the peninsula, move for permanent residence or come for vacation.

The Crimean leader noted that the growing number of celebrities have expressed their wish to obtain Russian citizenship. Among them are famed US boxer Roy Jones and Samy Naceri, a French actor known for his roles in the Taxi movie.

French actor Gerard Depardieu also earlier received a Russian passport.

I don't know much about this band. Are they still popular or all washed up now?

They were never really very popular, but they had a sort of a cult following among Hip Hop Metal fans back in the 1990s. I think they sold a lot of records, but then, so did Hannah Montana.

The band is mostly defunct but Durst is still a player in the music and film industry. A lot of people dislike him but that isn't the same inside the music industry, there he is very well liked (unless you are Eminem).

They had/have a pretty big following. They were nominated for 3 Grammies and sold $400K of one of their albums in the first day.

They toured with some of the biggest bands.


I've never been a fan, but their guitarist Wes Boreland is one of my favorites. Unique sound.

I saw them in Dallas with Korn, Metallica, Eminem, Linkin Park, etc. Had a great time but the show was meh. Soundman was phoning it in or something.

Perhaps, one of the most artistic uses of the word "Fuck," in all of poetry:

"Hot Dog"

Ladies and gentlemen!
Introducing the Chocolate Starfish!
and the Hotdog Flavored Water
Bring it on!
Get the fuck up!
Yeah!
Check, one, two

Listen up, listen up!
Here we go
It's a fucked up world
A fucked up place
Everybody's judged by their fucked up face
Fucked up dreams
Fucked up life
A fucked up kid
With a fucked up knife
Fucked up moms
And fucked up dads
It's a fucked up a cop
With a fucked up badge
Fucked up job
With fucked up pay
And a fucked up boss
Is a fucked up pain
Fucked up press
And fucked up lies
Well, Lethal's in the back
With the fact of the fires

Hey, it's on
Everybody knows it's on
Hey, it's on
Everybody knows it's on

Ain't it a shame that you can't say "Fuck"
Fuck's just a word
And it's all fucked up
Like a fucked up punk
With a fucked up mouth
A nine inch nail
I'll get knocked the fuck out
Fucked up aids
From fucked up sex
Fake ass titties
On a fucked up chest
We're all fucked up
So whatcha wanna do?
We fucked up me
And fucked up you

You wanna fuck me like an animal
You'd like to burn me on the inside
You like to think that I'm a perfect drug
Just know that nothing you do
Will bring you closer to me

Ain't life a bitch?
A fucked up bitch
A fucked up sore with a fucked up stitch
A fucked up head
Is a fucked up shame
Swinging on my nuts
Is a fucked up game
Jealousy filling up a fucked up mind
It's real fucked up
Like a fucked up crime
If I say "Fuck", two more times
That's forty six "Fucks" in this fucked up rhyme

It's on
Everybody knows it's on
Hey, it's on
Everybody knows it's on

You wanna fuck me like an animal
You'd like to burn me on the inside
You like to think that I'm a perfect drug
Just know that nothing you do
Will bring you closer to me

Hooo Haaa Haaaw!
Listen up baby
You.. can't.. bring.. me.. (bring me).. down
I.. don't.. think.. so
I don't want some
You.. better.. check.. your.. (check it).. self
Before.. you.. wreck.. your.. self
Kiss.. my.. star.. fish
My.. choco.. late.. Starfish.. punk
Kiss.. my.. star.. fish
My.. choco.. late.. Starfish.. punk

You wanna fuck me like an animal
You'd like to burn me on the inside
You like to think that I'm a perfect drug
Just know that nothing you do
Will bring you closer to me


(NO, folks this song was not written by our very own Hollywood.)
