I hope they throw mashed potatos and gravy at BB during his next Canadian gig. What a juvenile interview.

When did the band form? I'm not sure what that means.

Boy, that put a damper on the interview.

I love BBT's acting and work in film. I don't know his music. But now I know he's an asshat. That's something.

I was impressed with the host's poise under difficult circumstances.

They were definitely embarrassed. I couldn't imagine working with that kind of egotistical jerk.

You had lingering respect for him before this?

He makes Kid Rock seem classy.

I guess the DJ should have honored the bands request to not talk about Billy Bob's acting career if he expected the interview to go well. Usually if you want to have a good interview with a singer you should not start off talking about things you or your boss were told were off limits.

No. I used the word "little" as in almost non-existent.

The very brief reference was no excuse to ruin the interview for the rest of the band members. He's an egotistical jerk that thinks the world should revolve around him. Screw the opportunity for his band members.

yeah, he mentioned it in context. BBT is a big star and it's easier for people to understand who he is and what his band is if they understand that he is THE BBT. Since it's on radio, there might be a question.

I think the interviewer handled it great.

Incorrect.

Botto can understand basic english and can distinguish his ass from his elbow.
I'm surprised Billy Boy had the wisdom to speak into the microphone and not the doorknob.

Meh, as much as I'd like to dislike BBT, after him doing Angelina Jolie, anything I'd have to say would sound jealous.

As much of an ass as BBT made of himself in that video, it was all calculated and surprisingly effective. He sure had the interviewer flustered and on his guard. He is still however an ass.

Wow...just wow! Was he stoned, drunk or just a total ass? I didn't really know anything about him outside of his movies before this. What a total ass hat. His band mates were totally embarrassed, and for good reason.
