Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl may have a reputation as one of the nicest guys in rock, but that doesn't mean he isn't above occasionally getting snarky with someone. He famously trashed Glee creator Ryan Murphy a couple of years back, and on Monday night (February 4th), during the first show of his weeklong stint as guest host on the E! network's Chelsea Lately, Grohl took a verbal swipe at Britney Spears.
During a roundtable discussion on the news that the Planet Hollywood casino in Las Vegas had passed on a Spears residency in favor of a hypnotist, Grohl sniped, "She just kinda seems dead inside, like there's nothing behind her eyes. Like there's nothing in her boobs anymore!"
Video of the exchange has been posted online. Grohl will continue subbing for host Chelsea Handler on the program through Friday (February 8th).
Grohl sat in for Handler last December 6th and has also been a guest on the show himself in the past.
The "first and only ever" New York City show by Grohl's Sound City Players will take place on February 13th at Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom. Performers will include Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Rage Against The Machine's Brad Wilk plus members of Nirvana and Foo Fighters and more.
Grohl's documentary, Sound City, is now showing in limited theaters and on VOD and is available to order on DVD.
