Kevin Federline has kicked women's behinds — off his new album.

The aspiring rapper's debut CD “Playing With Fire” hits shelves on Halloween, but his much-derided ode to ladies' derrieres, “PopoZao,” reportedly won't make the cut. It's being replaced, reports WENN, by a duet with Britney Spears called “Crazy.”

“PopoZao” debuted on the Internet in January — sample lyric: “Toy all your thing on me, baby” — and Billboard magazine dubbed the tune a “monument to mediocrity.” Even a rapper who claimed that he wrote many of Federline's lyrics, when asked about “PopoZao,” told the New York Daily News: "I didn't have nothing to do with that, dog."

DMX: She ‘raped me’
Rapper DMX says he's not responsible for his illegitimate child.

“[The mother of the baby] raped me,” the rapper told S2S magazine. “I mean, you know, that might sound like some bull[bleep]. No man has ever been... you know what I mean, like never?”

Tashera Simmons, the wife of the rapper, says she stands by her man. "Before the stuff hit the fan, [the woman] came up to us [and] said ‘I work for kids that are sickly,’” Simmons told he mag. “So [DMX] said ‘Give her my number.’ That's how it goes all the time. At first, I said OK. But, then I thought she looked deranged and obsessed with him.”

Notes from all over
David Hasselhoff apparently is trying to insinuate himself into the big-screen remake of his 1980s talking-car series “Knight Rider.” Right now, the script does not involve Hasselhoff, reports Ain't It Cool News, but the actor “is out there trying to remain involved with a project in which he is deeply invested and keenly interested — but has no legal claim to.” ... Janet Jackson was not in a good state of mind when she recorded “Love 2 Love” off her new album “20 Y.O.” “That song was written and recorded while my brother was going through [his sexual molestation trial],” Jackson told Giant mag. “The whole night trying to record, I could not stop crying. Michael was in my mind ... Thank God the room I was singing in didn't have any windows.” ... P. Diddy and Kim Porter — who are expecting twins in December — recently ordered a teddy bear from posh kiddie store PetitTresor.com. Not just any teddy bear, though, a life-sized, eight-foot-tall one. The couple isn't revealing the gender of their forthcoming babies, so the Scoop asked if the ribbon tied around the toy animal was ordered in blue or pink. “Neither,” says the source. “Gold. Bling!”
