You might recognize his name from his 2006 debut album, “Playing With Fire”; his appearances on WWE, CSI or One Tree Hill; or his 2007 Nationwide Superbowl Commercial. Or maybe you’re familiar with his ex-wife. In any case, Federline’s name and face have shuffled in and out of pop culture references for the last 15 years.
From a humble beginning in Fresno, California, Kevin experienced the wildest, fastest ride into the limelight, jumping from backup dancer, to A-list reality television star, to prime-time drama/B-list guest-star. He found his first success in 1999, performing on stage with some of the most iconic pop and hip hop artists of the era including Michael Jackson, Destiny’s Child, Usher, P!nk and Justin Timberlake.
Dance lead him to music, which has been his focus ever since. In 2012 Kevin started DJing in clubs from Atlantic City to Las Vegas to Tokyo. His personal style which he once described as “a hip-hop flavor, mixed with a little bit of rock and roll,” now includes electronic influences.
Ten years after his first, infamous foray into music production, Kevin is back with plans to cut more records and continue DJing, producing and rapping. In the last few years, Kevin took a step out of the spotlight to become a family man and raise his 6 kids.
Today on his Instagram you’re just as likely to see his 13-and-under squad playing with the family dog, as photos of him at the club, but music has remained a constant priority.
HEAR BRITTANY AND BALLZER'S INTERVIEW WITH K-FED:
Check out the video we were talking about for Hollywood:
I did something yesterday that I have been putting off for years. It's something that everyone should do, sooner than later. I got a full body check for moles and signs of skin cancer. I had a few moles of concern, like the one on my face in this picture and on my neck and chest. I thought it was time to get it done!
When I was in my early 20's I did A LOT of tanning in tanning beds. I knew it wasn't good for me, but I wanted to be tan because I thought it made me look beautiful! Although a nice tan glow can look beautiful...skin cancer, lesions, and black hairy moles are not quite as beautiful.
Thankfully, at this time, I do not have any moles that are medically concerning. Amazingly, by looking at my back he knew that at some point I had suffered a sun burn that caused blistering. To me it looks like freckles, to the Dermatologist it's sun damage. I'm supposed to watch a couple of them to be sure they don't grow or change color, but overall I was lucky.
The Dr. did suggest that a small amount of sunlight is actually good for your health. 20 minutes a day was his recommendation (using sunscreen). Natural sunlight gives you the Vitamin D that your body needs.
If anything, finding out the condition of your skin as a baseline is a good idea. Then you have something to compare it to years down the road. And let's be real...most importantly, it's peace of mind! If you find there are signs of skin cancer, you can get on top of it and get it taken care of before it becomes deadly!
Sure, it wasn't the most comfortable experience because it's important for the doctor to check every inch of your naked body. It's not the time to be self conscious. The doctor is being thorough to insure to catch any and all signs of concern! I'm not trying to tell you what to do, but I thought maybe you were thinking about it and possibly were putting it off, like I was, because you were scared. I now have one less thing to be concerned or stressed about!

Maybe the President has a future in music after this whole Leader of the Free World gig is up. Baracksdubs threw down some presidential moments to Drake's song "One Dance!"
Haven't met the right guy yet? We all struggle with finding the "perfect" relationship. Truth is...there are no "perfect relationships" because humans are not perfect. However, you can certainly strive to find the person who compliments you and the person who will treat you the way you treat others.
You probably think that he doesn't exist and you'll never find him. I can tell you...he DOES exist, he's waiting for YOU, and you WILL find him! And I'll bet you're tired of hearing people say that. I was too.
I had a string of bad relationships, I was cheated on several times, and I always felt that I was giving my all and I wasn't getting anything in return. I have had my heart ripped out and stepped on over and over. So one day I just gave up. I spent 2 years by myself. I didn't go on any dates, I had no interest in meeting anyone, and I concentrated on me. I found out a lot about myself and took the time to figure out what was truly important to me. What would make me happy in a partner? What would it take for me to trust someone with my heart again?
During my strike I received an email from my boss's friend, telling me that she worked with a guy who would be "perfect for me." I told her I was not interested and I was too busy. People were always trying to set me up with the "perfect guy for me." I was not interested. So...she let it go...for a while. I ran into her months later and she insisted that I please just trust her. So, I decided to take a chance. I met him for a date, with zero expectations, and we've been together ever since. He's the man I have been searching for and he's the love of my life! Turns out, sometimes set ups do work. Thank God I took a chance. All of a sudden, "You'll just know when you find the right one" became a reality. I get it now.
A friend of mine is currently searching for love in all the wrong places. She posted this list on my Facebook page. I love this list, because I feel there is nothing wrong with wanting all of these things in a partner. You may not get all of these, but if you're not getting ANY of these...then you're setting the bar too low. Check it out!
You are worth it!

LISTEN TO DREW'S INTERVIEW WITH BRITTANY AND BALLZER:
CHECK OUT DREW IN ACTION ON AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR! (HIS STORY STARTS AROUND THE 27 MINUTE MARK)
You may have heard about the former Stanford swimmer, who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman, and was sentenced to six months in jail because a longer sentence would have “a severe impact on him,” according to a judge. At his sentencing, his victim read him a letter describing the “severe impact” the assault had on her.
I warn you, this is a difficult letter to read and even more difficult to think about it actually happening. Click here to read the victim's letter to her attacker. One man's response to the woman's letter has blown up on social media, and I believe it's a step in the right direction. Click here to read this man's letter to the victim.
This is just ONE example of a life that has been turned upside down and ripped apart, while according to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) the statistics show that every 2 minutes an American is sexually assaulted. Every 107 seconds, another person experiences sexual assault. Sexual violence affects hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. Only 6 out of every 1,000 rapists will end up in prison. Read more about the statistics here.
I thank God that I have never been violated or personally affected by rape. I do not speak from experience on how to go about dealing with this unimaginable nightmare, however I thought if maybe I talked about it and did some research on how to go about getting help...it might give someone the courage to speak up. Never hurts to try.
How do we change the statistics? How do we make it so that no woman, man, or child, will ever have to feel the pain and sheer terror of a sexual attack? The number one reason for rape is rapists. Until we can change the statistics, know that if you have been a victim of sexual assault...there is help for you and you are not alone. Do not be ashamed. They DID mean to hurt you. It's not ok what they did to you. And most importantly; it wasn't, isn't, and will never be your fault. Click here for info on how to get help!
