Joel and Benji Madden stormed out of a Melbourne radio station after taking offense to an interview segment about Britney Spears.
Huh…what did she do, you say?
The normally laid-back twins began the interview with Fox 101.9 breakfast show hosts Jo Stanley and Matt Tilley by warning the pair that they were “pretty wrecked” after a big night out.
After answering a few preliminary questions, the Madden brothers were asked to play a game to test if they could sense what the other was feeling.
The game soon turned ugly when Benji was blindfolded and Joel was shown a well-known photograph of Britney Spears getting out of a car without her underwear on. Yeah, THAT one.
Benji promptly guessed that his brother was annoyed while Joel made no secret of his irritation.
“I think I’m pretty laid back dude, but you guys are getting on my nerves.”
A spokeswoman for the radio show said that producers were forced to use the “dump button” to prevent expletives from the musicians going to air.
Joel could then be heard saying “we’re outta here” before storming out of the studio just as Tilley was attempting to move onto a new challenge.
His brother left the studio shortly after.
Joel Madden was quick to vent his fury at the radio hosts on Twitter.
“Just walked out of a FOXfm interview in Melbourne not in the mood to be a clown.
Most of the time I can put up with idiot morning show hosts but not today. I guess I have finally found some Aussies I don’t get on with.”
Joel told producers off air he was offended about being shown the photo of Spears because he was a father.
You don’t have to explain yourself Joel — every time I look at that photo I’m offended too.
