Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline Biography

Kevin Earl Federline, (born March 21, 1978, in Fresno, California), is an American dancer and aspiring rapper, notably married to pop icon Britney Spears.

Early on, Federline worked as a backup dancer for Christina Milian, Justin Timberlake, P!nk, Michael Jackson, and the band LFO, future wife Britney Spears' opening act. Federline would later co-star with Spears on the 2005 reality television show, Britney and Kevin: Chaotic, which consisted of home videos shot by the couple. He also appeared in the 2004 movie, You Got Served.

Federline has been signed to model for the Five Star Vintage line by the San Francisco-based Blue Marlin clothing company. The initial series of ads is set to run in September 2006. When asked if Federline's role was permanent, he said, "We have to see how this first ad campaign goes."

After being introduced by his visibly pregnant wife, Federline performed his first "official" single titled "Lose Control" as the final act of the 2006 Teen Choice Awards. Federline was nominated in another category (Teen Choice Award for Male Red Carpet Fashion Icon) though he did not win. Federline's music performance on the Teen Choice Awards received mixed reviews. The Associated Press described the performance as "enthusiastic" and concluded that Federline "apparently" could rap. The same conclusion was not reached by some within the hip hop community, as Elliot Wilson, chief editor of XXL Magazine quipped that Federline should be ignored, stating, "he's a joke, basically." Federline's previous single, "PopoZão," released on New Year's Day, 2006, had received a similar mixed response, with many fans singing their praises for the track[citation needed], while Entertainment Weekly described PopoZão as worse than expected, and music trade magazine Billboard echoed that the song was 'a monument to mediocrity.'

Federline will release his album, Playing with Fire on 10/31.

Federline will make his television acting debut in an episode of CSI that will air in October. He also is to appear in three episodes of Entourage.
