UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - He danced, he clutched his bling, but could he rap?
Apparently the answer is yes.
Britney Spears’ hubby Kevin Federline capped off the eighth annual Teen Choice Awards on Sunday with an enthusiastic version of his single “Lose Control” — his first time performing on network television.
It wasn’t genius, but it wasn’t half bad either.
The bigger surprise, however, came in the form of pregnant presenter Spears, who wore a cleavage-baring dress, and introduced her “man” onstage with a shout and a giggle.
“This show has been very good to me and my career over the years. And I’m hoping that it will be as good to our next performer,” she said.
In a loose white shirt and white hat, Federline prowled and jumped around the stage, surrounded by young dancers.
“I ain’t here to brag,” he rapped in a tough-guy style.
“American Idol” judge Paula Abdul, when asked before the show what advice she would give the 28-year-old singer and rapper, didn’t hesitate.
“Do what you gotta do and have fun,” she said.
Federline, who married Spears in 2004, is expected to release his debut hip-hop album “Playing With Fire” in August. The tabloid-popular couple have an infant son, Sean Preston, and they are expecting their second child.
