At the recent Rock in Rio USA, a photo of Metallica's Lar Ulrich hit the web. It appeared to show everyone's favourite butthurt drummer sporting a racy red thong as he hit the skins:
In terms of comedic value, a curmudgeonly old man in women's panties really ticks the boxes. TMZ, who will chase the scoops no one has time for, actually reached out to Ulrich's people for clarification.
A rep blamed the thong on a "butt shadow" caused by the red lights of the stage.
When I look really close at Lars Ulrich's ass, I think the rep is probably right.
Lars says, "cool."
